1. Outstanding Outerwear

THE ROW Fur Terete Coat / THE ROW Sleeveless Piona Top / THE ROW Hopsack Ashland Jeans / SIDNEY GARBER Oval-Link Chain With Diamond-Accented Clasp / MANOLO BLAHNIK Susa Slides

Be the warmest and the chicest woman at the party wearing an elegant floor-sweeping coat, perfected here by The Row. Keep the look purposeful by wearing something tonal underneath and look for extra details—like a bow or ruffles—to add intrigue if the jacket comes off.


2. Sheer Blouse + Trousers

SIMILAR: ISABEL MARANT ÉTOILE Voile Nathan Top / 3.1 PHILLIP LIM Crêpe De Chine Pants / CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN Platt Dance Oxfords

Add a flirty element to a pants ensemble by opting for a sheer or semi-sheer blouse. The combination of a feminine top and tomboy elements like trousers and flat brogues creates an enticing and intriguing contrast.


3. Texture Play

Chloe, Amelia Toro
CHLOÉ Shearling Vest / CHLOÉ Long-Sleeve Mini Dress / CHLOÉ Plated-Heel Pumps / AMELIA TORO Crepe A-Line Skirt / AQUAZZURA Matilde Pumps

Stand out in a sea of sequins by amping up texture that shines sans sparkle. Play with tactile elements like shearling, ruffles, and leather—and why not try combining them?


4. Relaxed Suiting

NILI LOTAN Left Bank Blazer / NILI LOTAN Tieneck Sleeveless Blouse / NILI LOTAN Slim-Fit Trousers / MANOLO BLAHNIK Chaos Ankle-Strap Sandals

There’s nothing overly buttoned-up about this fuss-free pantsuit from Nili Lotan. The combination of loose tailoring and a touch of satin oozes sophistication and hints playfully at defiance (we’re looking at you, Bianca Jagger).


5. Sporty Glam

PACO RABANNE Chainmail Tank Dress / PACO RABANNE Twill & Neoprene Hoodie

There’s something truly beguiling the way this Paco Rabanne chainmail tank dress catches the light—tough and dainty all at once. Even more transfixing, pairing such a striking dress with an unexpected top layer like a hoodie to downplay the shine.


6. Understated Elegance

Brock Collection on Allese Thomson

There’s something bold about wearing a classic gown, but doing so with captivating nonchalance. This Brock gown has a classic full skirt silhouette, yet is made of white poplin, giving it an utterly fresh feel—especially when combined with tousled hair and minimal jewelry.
