Back to Work!

The last days of summer are upon us. Many of us are resuming school and/or work from vacation and you probably want to kill it the first week in Binienu style. This is where we come in, we’re offering a couple of style inspirations we believe would make you stand out while still -maybe barely- staying within the rules of the workplace.

Monday

Start the week with a punch. Go red. They didn’t see this one coming! Hit ’em with the ultimate power colour.

 

Tuesday

They’d still be reeling from your unmistakable presence from yesterday. Help them recover a bit…only a bit. Pair a statement black skirt with a classic white shirt or blouse.

 

Wednesday

We’re toning down the “fierce” a bit because it’s hump day. Let’s celebrate! Pull out that floral piece and bloom.

Thursday

At this point, we’re really just waiting for the weekend to roll by. We’d be counting down in dungarees! Yes, dungarees can absolutely be work appropriate.

Friday

The weekend is here, oh joy! Here in Lagos, there’s somewhat of an unwritten rule that calls for African prints. In skirts, gowns, shorts or jackets, the fun prints, and sometimes quirky styles seem to usher in the weekend with their own little party.

Do you have a go-to “return to work/school” outfit? We’d love to know in the comments below.

COLOUR CRUSH: EMERALD

Colours can make or break a style, enhance an event and even influence moods. Today we would be immersing ourselves in the luxurious hues of one of the jewel tones, Emerald.

This bold colour is named after the precious stone “Emerald” and is a shade of green. It is often used to depict luxury, life, growth and wealth.

As a fashion piece, it can be styled with either contrasting colours of the same hue or complimentary colours in a lighter/softer tint. Perfect for evenings, it is primarily paired with gold or silver accessories, gold often being the preferred option.

In fabrics like velvet and brocade, this colour is absolutely stunning! Satin and Silk commands the same luxurious attention with the subtle shimmer that reflects with the movement of the wearer.

When it comes to styling Emerald for a day look, ‘the dark to light’ rule, where you pair a dark colour with a light colour, can act as a guide to help create a balance. Mustard, Burgundy, Cranberry, Plum and Navy are some of the darker colours often paired with Emerald that create a striking palette. Softer shades like Blush, peach and Champagne beautifully complements the rich dark colour of Emerald.

How do you feel about Emerald? Are you crushing on it like we are? What has been your favourite “glam moment” with this statement hue? Comment in the comment section below.
