Mariko’s Day to Night Edit
Legal counsel by day, fashion blogger by night. Mariko Kuo tells us how dressing for work doesn’t have to be boring, especially now we’ve entered the party season. We asked Mariko to style-up her favourite Fold pieces for day-to-night dressing and talk us through each look. Read Mariko’s edit below…
The Wren jacket and trouser combination is perfect for when you need to make a sophisticated statement at work. Add some sparkly earrings, a chic belt (like this Hutton belt in black patent) and some bold red lipstick to transform this look for an evening engagement.
With Christmas and New Year just around the corner, embrace the festive season with the Carnaby dress in rich vermilion red. For anyone looking to experiment with their workwear, why not inject some colour with this vibrant, yet classic dress incorporating ruffled cuffs (so on trend!) Make an entrance by combining your Carnaby dress with a luxurious coat like the Claremont in navy.
The Connaught dress is the ultimate evening dress, it exudes elegance with just a touch of playfulness. The sheer black cuffs give this piece movement and makes you want to dance the night away. This dress is a definite winner for cocktail hour, but can be easily worn to work by adding a decorative collar necklace or a cardigan pulled in with a simple belt.
The Claremont coat is a stand-out winter coat with a flattering neckline and a self-tie belt which accentuates the figure. It’s a very elegant one-of-a-kind piece that you can throw over any dress en route to dinner.
