Gone are the days of confining party attire to cocktail dresses and LBDs. Lately, the possibilities are endless—thanks to last year’s “fancy pants” and the new tanks and tees. It’s all about statement pieces, paired with non-competing separates that complement them to a T. Our fave take of the season? Sparkle tops and streamlined jeans. We’ve got your guide to wearing them to your next RSVP.
Pick the Right Top
You want to balance shape and texture: The more sparkly the top, the more simple its silhouette should be. In our book? The more sparkle, the better—so we always opt for a tank or tee.
Pick the Right Jeans
To keep the look perfectly polished, opt for solid skinnies versus any style with distressing. You can never go wrong with a dark-blue wash, but consider black when your top is black and white when you’re wearing gold. (So chic!)
Pay Attention to the Details
Nothing should be as casual as your jeans, so be sure your hair and makeup are this side of “done.” Then, grab a neutral clutch, throw on strappy heels, pick a piece of jewelry (anything but a necklace!) and call it a day.
