An important evening by the sea

Yesterday Barbara  wrote to me for advice on what to wear for an important evening in an open bar by the sea, with standing dinner.

I would opt for a long and wide dress as to Stella Jean or to Stella Mc Cartney.

 

Ieri mi ha scritto Barbara per avere un consiglio su cosa indossare per una serata importante in un locale all’aperto in riva al mare, con cena in piedi.

Opterei per un abito lungo ed ampio come quello di Stella Jean o di Stella Mc Cartney.

Less jaunty but more elegant the gorgeous black gown by Nina Ricci.

 

Meno sbarazzino e più elegante lo splendido abito nero di Nina Ricci.

If you don’t feel comfortable with a long dress you can choose a kaftan, as this one in lurex by Dries Van Noten.

 

Se non ti senti a tuo agio con un abito lungo puoi scegliere un caftano, come questo di lurex di Dries Van Noten.

Or you can choose a more rakish look, but elegant at the same time: the outfit by Dries Van Noten with embroidered top and lurex pants.

 

Oppure per un look più sbarazzino, ma altrettanto elegante il completo con top ricamato e pantalone di lurex.

Strictly flat sandals or platform sandals to take off for a walk on the beach. Clutch BaoBao by Issey Miyake in violet for all the looks.

 

Sandali rigorosamente bassi oppure zeppe da poter togliere per una eventuale passeggiata notturna sulla spiaggia. Clutch BaoBao di Issey Miyake viola per tutti i look.
