How 3 Women Made the Same Outfit Work For Day and Night
Misha Nonoo's Easy 8 collection is so clever, every designer should have picked up on the idea. Misha has completely owned and carried out the concept, for which she's created eight crisp wardrobe basics in black and white: a mod-inspired dress, trousers, a blazer, a skirt, a turtleneck, a collared tank, a simple button-down, and a sleek jumpsuit. The fact that she's proved they can be mixed and matched into 22 different looks confirms these are true essentials — and really all any woman needs to stay chic.
Intrigued by effortless outfit making and enamored by the clean lines and neutral palette of the clothes, which retail from $95 to $695, three POPSUGAR ladies did a little shopping. Creative Director Maggie Ha, Executive Style Director Dana Avidan Cohn, and Fashion Editor Sarah Wasilak chose their favorite pieces and took them from a.m. to p.m. — or, in other words, from the office to a night out. Scroll to see how we transformed Misha's must haves and you'll instantly be convinced you need them, too.
The Husband Shirt and Kiki Pant
Maggie turned up the sleeves of her shirt and added casual touches, like a knot at the midriff and simple white sneakers. Her two-tone Jil Sander bag made a bold splash for daytime.
Keeping things polished and sophisticated, Maggie balanced her evening look with cobalt peep-toe heels, a structured clutch, and a fistful of gold rings.
The Chiara Jumpsuit and Flirt Shirt
Dana popped her crisp white collar out from underneath the wide-leg jumpsuit, making the pooling pants daytime appropriate and a little more playful. She accessorized with an easy Céline shoulder bag and mirrored sunglasses.
For the evening, Dana swapped out her carry-all for a studded clutch. It was the only accessory she needed — the cutout jumpsuit sans shirt spoke volumes. By baring a hint of skin, the resulting look was a touch sultry too.
The Elena Dress
Sarah highlighted the graphic print on the throw-on-and-go tunic dress with a white tee. Rolled sleeves make the look easygoing, especially complete with a pair of white sneakers.
For a night out, covering your shoulders with Misha's Florence Blazer provides warmth, but also slick sophistication. Mary-Jane pumps and artsy statement earrings play up the mod factor of the minidress.
