The staff nights out, celebrations with friends, romantic meals with your other half – the question is: ‘what to wear?’ However, for those who have been at work all day, time is often limited. Here are a few popular workwear items and their ethical equivalent, by Kitty Ferreira, that can be transformed into the perfect evening outfits by adding just an accessory or pair of heels.
L-R: Armani Collezioni (£242), Kitty Ferreira – Cinnamon Shirt (£120) and Zephaniah Trousers (£140)
Armani Collezioni has a nude, silk blouse with capped sleeves. The natural shade provides contrast from the traditional monochrome work attire. Kitty Ferreira’s collection is full of these tan tones, but are ethically made with sustainable upcycled materials. Match the Cinnamon Shirt with Zephaniah Trousers and add a pair of black stiletto heels to take this look into the evening.
L-R: Armani Collezioni (£633.17), Kitty Ferreira – Pomonion Coat (£350) and Twice Shy Skirt (£130)
Neutral colours have appeared in several collections with celosia orange and sand fabrics. Along with the blouse, Armani Collezioni also created a wool blend, tan wrap jacket for £633. Save yourself some money and opt for Kitty Ferreira’s exclusive Pomonion Coat, made of silk organza and hand eco-dyed with pomegranate and onion skins. Throw it on over your standard work uniform to get a sophisticated yet unique look. Wear with a classic shirt and Kitty Ferreira’s Twice Shy Skirt for cocktails with the girls.
L-R: LK Bennett (£245), Kitty Ferreira – Petal Dress (£180)
Dresses are always essential in a woman’s wardrobe. LK Bennett has a structured, floral black dress with sleeves cut just above the elbow. Kitty Ferreira’s ethical version – the Petal Dress – is fitted in the same style, featuring a V-neck and pleated side seam, the dress falls in an hourglass shape. The elegant Petal Dress should be worn with kitten heels for work but can also work for impromptu staff nights out. Streamline your wardrobe whilst being kinder to the environment with Kitty Ferreira’s beautifully unique designs, perfect for every event from boardroom-to-bar.
