day to night : the suit

2 years ago by

Love this simple black suit worn by Racil – it’s that perfect ensemble to illustrate just how easy it is to take a look from day to night. Her eponymous line of suits, by the same name, have kind of filled that void of a suit for all occasions. With the ability to show playful versatility when worn with sneakers and a tee while the sun is out, and simplifying one step further for evening : a red pump and a bold earring. It’s just the type of look we love!

Racil, born in Beirut and raised in Paris, has a sense of nonchalance and elegant amusement that even her pearl sunnies can’t hide …. It’s just that disposition that helped her to create a le smoking that felt a bit less stiff, and one not just for the evening. Her collection includes the classic black and white versions, but also pastels, poppy fuchsia’s and next season, luxurious velvet robe coats!

It’s a good reminder that the perfect black suit, be it a tux or a three piece suit tailored to you, is an item worth investing in. Something you can can take cues from the men and turn into something else, something quite feminine. After all, it’s 2016 – women can wear the pants too!

I think nowadays we live such fast lives and are always on the go! It is nice to know that you can transform such an elegant outfit as the Tuxedo and make it work from day to night, or night to day… ;-)

I like to wear mine with trainers and a vintage t shirt during the day and then freshen up quickly, add heels and some red lipstick and I’m ready to go to the nicest dinner!   The tuxedo becomes versatile while keeping its perfect elegance and you are never under dressed nor over dressed!
