We don’t really need an excuse for a party, and cocktail parties are our favourite in particular. These days, however, cocktails parties can be anything from low-key soirées to full on black tie events, it can be a little confusing to decide what exactly your host expects you to wear. Do not be afraid to break traditional cocktail attire rules (fashion is all about making a statement, right?), but make sure you are dressing up appropriately for the season and kind of event. To help you look ultra glam, we have put together 10 looks for you to wear to your next social.
One can never go wrong with an LBD. Show off your décolletage with this sexy number by Rosetta Getty and combine it with sleek gold accessories like these Salvatore Ferragamo earrings and Jimmy Choo clutch. The Saint Laurent sandals are your finishing touch to an ultra-chic look.
For a polished look, go for this slim-fit Givenchy blazer and trousers. Rock a crisp white Tom Ford shirt for that Tom Ford look and bottom out with a sleek pair of leather Oxford shoes from Jimmy Choo. Add a touch of luxe to your getup with brushed gold-tone Lanvin Cufflinks.
Feel like a supermodel in this Alexander Wang mini skirt and midriff-baring Norba wrap top. The Tom Ford sandals will make your legs look longer underneath that sexy skirt, while the Alaia clutch adds a touch of metallic chic to your ensemble.
If you’re into making a fashion statement, throw on this Etro blazer and keep the rest of the outfit low-key with a black Tom Ford Shirt , slim fit Calvin Klein pants and a pair of suede tassel loafers from Tods.
…but not like you would think — we’re talking about the colour palette. Accentuate that beach-vacation bronze (before it fades) with nude and dusty pink colours. We love this crisp Dion Lee mini dress paired with nude Giuseppe Zanotti sandals. Put on the Mizuki pearl drop earrings, pick up the rockstud Valentino shoulder bag and you’re ready to walk out the door.
Most men don’t break away from the classic black, grey and blue when it comes to cocktail parties. Turn heads with this Gucci Blazer paired with a white Tom Ford shirt and navy trousers from Canali. Slip on the coffee-coloured Berluti loafers and you’re right as rain.
There is nothing sexier than a woman in a suit, and we love when she knows how to “girl” it up. Throw on this black Saint Laurent blazer over Anne Demeulemeester wide leg pants and slink it up with a sexy Paris Georgia crop top underneath. The black Saint Laurent shoulder bag and Giuseppe Zanotti platform sandals (wishlist!) complete the look.
There’s nothing like a deep blue suit to really make an impression. A sharp white shirt from Ermenegildo Zegna will create a stark contrast to the navy hue of the Boglioli blazers and trousers. Class up the look with a Tom Ford pocket square, and finish it off with brown George Cleverly loafers.
Define those curves with this pencil skirt by Herve L. Leroux. The black off-shoulder Amir Slama bodysuit will add to flaunting your shape as well as your shoulders. Finish off the look with Jimmy Choo sandals, and give this monochrome ensemble a dash of colour with a cyber blue Fendi bag.
A seductive and sharp look courtesy of the standout Balmain blazer its structured shoulders and lustrous satin lapels. Complete the look with tailored pants from Maison Margiela, a black button down shirt from Tom Ford and brown Berluti Loafers.
