An It-Girl Designer Gives Us Her Day-To-Night Must-Haves

Since starting her line in 2012, Denmark-born Anine Bing has been on a meteoric rise. She has become a blogger and cool-girl favorite, assembling a devoted following for her collection of classic pieces with subtly feminine details. Refusing to be limited by seasons, Bing is constantly introducing new pieces to her line, which now includes clothing, jackets, lingerie, jewelry, bags, swimwear, sunglasses and shoes. Recently Bing also opened a new flagship store in West Hollywood in LA, replacing her smaller space down the street; she also has a store in the West Village of New York City and in Antwerp, Belgium with more openings slated for next year. We asked the beautiful tastemaker what a few of the key pieces in her wardrobe are and how she transitions them from day to night. Click through and take note because as Bing’s Instagram proves (@aninebing), her personal style is the ultimate fusion of California laid-back cool and European chic. We’re into it.

Leather Jacket For Day

“I love pieces I can wear during the day and that easily transform into an evening outfit. This biker jacket is my favorite because it goes with everything. During the day I wear it with a pair of skinny jeans and boots—I can’t get enough of these boots in navy suede. And the jeans are also great. I like that the back pockets sit low, which makes for a more relaxed look.”

Leather Jacket For Night

“At night I like to keep my leather jacket on but style it with a dress instead. This long-sleeve silk dress is so versatile, and I love the combination of silk and chiffon.”

Leather Pants For Day

“You can never go wrong with a pair of leather pants. During the day I wear them with a knit and flats. I’m very into stripes at the moment, so I really like this sweater with buttons on the shoulders. Because these shoes are so comfortable they're perfect for a busy day, and the detail of the croc leather adds a bit of extra edge.”

Leather Pants For Night

“For a night out, I style leather pants with a simple V-neck t-shirt, a burgundy blazer in corduroy and a pair of heels. The shoulder bag in printed pony hair is such a statement piece—I like what it does to an outfit.”

Floral Dress For Day

“I style this dress with my favorite pair of oxfords and an oversize army jacket during the day. The Madison tote bag fits everything I need to bring with me without having to compromise on style.”

Floral Dress For Night

“At night I swap the army jacket for a cropped leather jacket and a pair of boots. I love the buckles and metal studs on these boots. And this mini clutch fits my phone, credit card and lip gloss, so I’m all set for a fun night with friends.”
