Dressing for Parties—Without Anxiety
Posted on January 19 2016
It’s inevitable: When you’re trying to find something to wear, you will tear through your wardrobe at least twice wondering What to Wear. To the office party, to the girls-only cocktail night when you bid farewell (or good riddance!) to the past year, and the list goes on. Too racy? Too boring? Too wore-that-last-year? The new year has approached and our current favourites already have us thinking that we’ve solved your every dilemma.
First, a few tips from our stylists: Even if your work environment isn’t overly conservative, don’t be tempted by that inner voice crying out to let go for the office party. Plunging neckline, mid-thigh skirt with exposed leg—no and no. You want to be striking, not distracting. The LBD is always classy, of course, but if you want to be a bit bold, go for colour or a simple pattern and an A-line cut with a little exposure at the neck and shoulders. We say save the straight cuts for daytime.
You can shimmer with confidence in our Mika Suedette Multi Strap Swing Dress. With its subtle sheen, rich butterscotch color, and playful skirt, the Mika is darling layered over leggings or flare-legs pants (if the skirt falls short on you). Stay away from necklaces and go for statement earrings and a bold lip.
After hours, the Rani Cross Back Palazzo Jumpsuit will be there for you. We knew from the first that this palazzo-leg suit would be the go-to for nights on the town. It’s body conscious but elegant. The deep V-neck means it accessorises beautifully, and wide crossed straps keep the lines interesting across the back. Wear your hair up and pair it all with a dramatic, chunky necklace—something that dangles down the back?— and you’ll be raising eyebrows in the best way this season.
