FASHION NOTES: ALTERNATIVES TO THE PARTY DRESS

18.12.15

There’s no denying it, the dress holds undeniable ease and an uncompromising top spot when it comes to party season styling, and with such a range available, why wouldn’t it? If you’re keen to break the mould and modernise your evening look this season, we’ve put together nine alternatives that see daytime classics take a dynamic turn and offer a stylish breakaway from the sea of go-to dresses.

THE JUMPSUIT

Capturing all-in-one elegance, the jumpsuit has fast become a one-stop solution for effortless evening style. Giving contemporary cool a dressed-up edge, it’s a happy compromise if you want to stray away from the dress. Balance full length styles with a shoe that has height to up the impact and create an elegant all-round aesthetic.

THE LEATHER SKIRT

Whether it’s sleek and minimal or emblazoned with crystals, a leather skirt chimes well with evening events. A daring alternative to more reserved cocktail classics, it will set the tone for a night to remember. Channel fashion’s un-seasoning fascination with black or head down the trend-led route and choose rich burgundy hues that won’t go unnoticed.

THE TAILORED TROUSERS

Thanks to an array of sharply tailored separates that have been designed with the evening in mind, you can now consider the suit officially out of office. A tailored two-piece is the epitome of tomboy chic and will create a distinctive sharpness that feels relevant and fresh. Show you mean business by wearing a full tuxedo or mix and match separates for a more relaxed spin.
