As party season fast approaches, one of the main things on our mind is finding the perfect party wear piece to see us through the endless array of sequin-worthy events in style. With so many different clubs, bars and venues around, choosing what to wear is an even bigger challenge than deciding on where to go. We feel your pain girl, so we’ve searched for essential and effortless pieces to amp up your night-out outfits. To combat this annual wardrobe predicament, we've turned to some of our #Alleygals at work for help by asking them what they would pick as their party hero piece for festive frolicking, along with some glamorous ways to wear them. They agree that the key to the perfect cocktail dress for your night out is luxe fabrics and glam detailing that take things to the next level. If you’re looking for something fancy without breaking the bank, these will take you places!
Vaidehi, Visual Merchandiser – Nothing says party like some serious all-over sequins – I love the body-hugging shape and the flawless slit which look great with my favorite pencil heels. Layer over a long-line jacket in a solid color for a way to wear it during the day too – don’t just save the sequins for a night out.
Sushmita, PR & Social Media Manager – I’m all for comfy at the moment, so although I appreciate a sequined number, there’s nothing more enticing than a bit of soft velvet, especially when the cut is so flattering and in my favourite colour – midnight black! I totally love the high slit as it adds more definition to the piece. A simple but effective party outfit!
Dakshita, Designer – I mostly go for maxi dresses because of my height as it adds an edge to my personality. I’m in love with all things glitter these days, and this shimmery metallic dress was love at first sight for me! The fit and flare style along with the one shoulder detail makes this outfit so glamorous, sophisticated, chic and has a Cinderella-meets-disco-ball vibe to it!
Amrinder, Stylist – I love how they gave a perfect twist to the LBD here and transformed it to a sexy tuxedo dress. The outfit instantly makes me feel confident and classy. I created a little contrast by wearing it with these amazing oxblood suede thigh-high boots. It’s incredible how this look is so very bold and formal at the same time!
Khushboo, Senior Merchandiser – Two words – bodycons & midis! This season’s prettiest midis come in sparkling hues and are back with a bang for the party season! Nothing feels better than a sparkling bodycon midi dress at a party, of-course, apart from the cocktails! This dress hugs my curves at all the right places and fits me like a dream. It makes me feel like a #bosslady even out of work and gives me so much confidence!
Shristi, Designer – Sequins and velvet? Groundbreaking! This metallic gold sequined skirt is the best thing I’ve added to my party wardrobe this season. I paired it with this really cute choker-neck velvet top to dress down the outfit a little.
Vershanjali, Designer – Disco is back and this dress totally proves it right! This strappy sequined dress enhances my curves and makes me feel like a million dollars! I love how it adds more structure to my figure and is a perfect outfit to kick-off a night out!
