Shining Armour

As independent women, we assume a leading role in our lives, working hard during the day but sometimes our commitments do not end when we leave the office, we may be requested to attend business related events.

Or we may have a date after work so we ask ourselves what to wear in the morning that is discreet enough for daytime and chic for the evening?

For those facing this dilemma, I recommend wearing simple clothes: jeans or black trousers with a silk top or a Rouland Mouret style little black dress and comfortable shoes, low heel or even ballerina flats.

Dolce & Gabbana (

You will feel comfortable and at ease during the day and the transformation for nightlife couldn't be more convenient, you just need to carry a bag with high heels and your 'shining armour'.

Roberto Cavalli (

I'm referring to this season's glitter blazer - it's empowering and gives an elegant edge to any outfit. It's the perfect option for an evening event or a party.

Moschino (

Balmain is without any doubt leading this look, but other designers have also included it in their collections such as Dolce & Gabbana, Roberto Cavalli and Moschino. The high street followed them, Zara also has a golden version of the glitter blazer.

Chanel (

The butterfly effect from day to night wouldn't be complete without a pair of high heels, Christian Louboutin has different glittering shoes and Nicholas Kirkwood is always edgy and also sexy.

And of course, do not forget the make-up, I would go for a strong shade of blue, Cleopatra style or for the sophisticated smokey eyes! Enjoy your evening!
