PARTY SEASON PERFECTED

27.11.15

As 2015 draws to a close and evening events dominate the social calendar, it’s a rotation of striking after-hours outfits that will make a lasting impression. Think of this as your definitive guide to evening elegance.

The Ultimate LBD

Intricate ribbon detailing and splices of sheer mesh take the black dress – a timeless classic – up a notch, just in time for party season. Metallic leather accents and a slash of bold red lipstick will add to its authoritative aesthetic and give your look a modern spin that eschews failsafe connotations. This is the LBD but not as you know it.

The Vintage-Inspired Dress

No evening wardrobe is complete without a single stand-out piece and this season, vintage-inspired accents elevate the most feminine of silhouettes. Call upon subtle accessories and a sprinkling of fine jewellery to keep styling neutral, and master the barely-there beauty look to let the finer details steal the focus. Less is most definitely more, after all.

The Tailored Tuxedo

Boy meets girl in the form of a sharp tuxedo, and when styled right, it’s the chicest way to make a lasting impression after dark. Dare to wear the blazer as a top, adding a silk neck-tie in lieu of jewellery and opting for a dark smoky eye for a distinctive combination that’s reserved solely for evening. This is power dressing at its most impactful.
