How many times have you opened up a party invite to read a different dress code? Between ‘black-tie optional’, ‘cocktail’, ‘smart casual’ and ‘business casual’, it’s understandable that there’s confusion and a collective Google search for what to wear at this time of year.
This is why we’re proposing a new dress code—'After-Five'. Dress codes are a funny thing. They date back to the Middle Ages when they were used to differentiate classes. I think we’ve moved away from that now, and fashion has too. Ladies can now wear pants, and skirt length debates are a thing of the past.
So what is 'After-Five'? It’s the girl you can’t take your eyes off when she walks into a room. She’s always polished (no chipped nails in sight), elevated (read: timeless), and can seamlessly slip from one event to another without so much as a shoe change. It isn’t overly trend driven and maintains your modesty.
Rather than explain with words, keep scrolling to see our new favourite dress code in motion.
