The Evening Suit

For an evening in Los Angeles I wanted to wear something that had the feel of an evening suit. The core pieces are your jacket and trouser, and ideally they would each be a little dressier than your office suit. Think slim lapels, color, or refined textures. I debated about which top to wear until I pulled out this lace and satin camisole with a built-in bra from my dresser. Technically, it’s a piece of lingerie-inspired shapewear, but wears like a supportive cami. I’ve had it for years and it still had tags on it! I wore this outfit to a fall fashion preview hosted by UK brand Simply Be.
