THE STATEMENT SUIT
THE PRINTED MIDI DRESS
THE SHIRT DRESS
Party dressing doesn’t have to involve sequins. Take a throwback approach by pairing a wear-forever shirt dress with a ladylike, logo-heavy bag and some sculptural gold jewelry. Finish with Gianvito Rossi’s plexi heels – they have the requisite retro-modern feel and make enough of a statement to lift your look after dark.
Elevate your favorite white shirt with a black midi skirt in a suitably luxe fabric – satin, velvet or brocade will all do the trick. A sleek leather clutch is low-key enough to see you through a day at the office but also sophisticated enough to pass muster after dark – just slip on the party shoes under your desk and add a pair of hoop earrings for a touch of OOO sparkle.
THE HOLIDAY SWEATER
If you prefer to nod to the festive party vibe rather than dive right in, then look to Bella Freud and her irresistibly sophisticated take on the holiday sweater. Keep yours pared back with a pencil skirt and classic boots; some subtly high-shine hair accessories make for an understated finishing touch.
