5 Ways to Rethink Your Evening Wardrobe
October 13, 2016
Holiday season is approaching. What are you going to wear? Give your LBDs a well-deserved rest, and mix up your party-circuit staples with unexpected cuts, eye-catching details, and of-the-moment fabrics.
1. Embrace Everything Velvet
Wear it from head-to-toe for a punch of glam rock.
2. Slip into a Jumpsuit
The unexpected silhouette makes a statement in siren red.
3. Embellish a little (or a lot!)
Delicate appliqués and embroideries lend a handcrafted flair.
4. Add an Abbreviated Hem
A party dress cut to the knee is at once playful and sophisticated.
5. Go big with a Ball Gown
For a dash of drama, opt for a beaded tulle bodice and floor-length satin skirt.
