If you’re on the hunt for a sleek pair of pants that seamlessly transition from the office to after-dark events, look to Agolde’s patent-leather pair. Crafted from a 50 percent-recycled leather blend, these straight-leg pants are nipped in at the waist for a ’90s fit, while the glossy finish adds an air of rebellion to a wool tank top or a soft cashmere sweater. For meetings, try styling them with Khaite’s structured ‘Tanner’ blazer. Cut from a luxe wool blend, its versatile beige hue makes this a perfect foundation piece to pair with other neutrals or balance pops of color. Finally, before stepping out after work, slip on Loewe’s playful buckled mules and complete the look with silver earrings and an understated leather clutch by Saint Laurent.

When evening festivities call for a distinctive dress, Coperni’s capsule collection – available only at NET-A-PORTER – delivers with sultry cutout designs. Abbi Minchin, NET-A-PORTER’s junior market editor, describes the brand’s embellished maxi as the ultimate statement dress. “I have long been a fan of Coperni, but the viral Bella Hadid SS23 runway moment has firmly cemented its place in fashion history,” she says. “We are thrilled to be launching this exclusive capsule for party season, as there is no one who does sexy eveningwear better than the brand’s dynamic design duo Sébastien Meyer and Arnaud Vaillant. This burgundy maxi dress is a firm favorite of mine from the collection; a divine choice for winter occasions – whether that be a festive party or black-tie event – the sleek stretch-jersey fabric is exceptionally flattering, and the sexy cutouts show just the right amount of skin. Although this dress speaks for itself, a shimmering pair of earrings and sky-high heels are, in my opinion, the ideal pairing.”

Party season is, of course, the perfect opportunity to indulge in statement accessories, too. Whether you’re dressing up an LBD or want to add a festive element to casual daytime looks, consider diamonds and a metallic bag for some essential holiday sparkle. Paco Rabanne’s gilded chainmail bag beautifully complements gold and diamond earrings by Shay. And when it comes to choosing stocking stuffers for your loved ones, Marlo Laz’s elegant ‘Natasha’ bracelet guarantees an equally radiant effect.
