There should always be a space in your wardrobe dedicated to eveningwear where you keep your most elevated ready to wear pieces on hand ready for the party season to begin. The eveningwear themes this season is focused on updating the classic tailoring codes, remixing traditional suiting styles in unexpected colours and fabrications.
This is the time to put your best fashion foot forward and take no prisoners. Whether it’s an office party or a celebration with friends, looking your best should always be your priority.
Here are the five eveningwear trends to get behind this party season
1. THE VELVET APPROACH
Velvet is a welcomed alternative to a standard suit fabric. It oozes elegance and polish. For a hint of sophistication, introduce velvet with suiting separates (a blazer or tailored trousers).
Take velvet to the next level and upgrade your suit to a tuxedo. Step away from the safety of black and navy and inject colour in the traditional black tie dress code. For a seasonal update, choose a bold colour that separates you from the guys who would tend to stick to a more tone down colour palette. Jewel tones work exceptionally well for this look.
For an attention-grabbing option, bright colours such as yellow work well to grab attention.
2. STRIKING A CORD
Corduroy has been reimagined through a modern lens this season. To translate this to your evening wardrobe, choose a darker colour palette instead of the standard camel or sand colour which is typically associated with a more casual wardrobe.
Go for a deep dark colour scheme to elevate your cord.
While not a practical colour where red wine is involved, be brave and go optical white.
3. THE SPARK
SEQUINED SUITS + SEPARATES
What says festive like a bit of sparkle? Put the disco ball to shame and add embellishment into your evening look. Put your faith in sequins to attract the attention you crave. Team your tailored trousers with a striped sequin striped jacket
For a full effect, try going for the whole striped sequin experience.
4. FALL FLOWERS
FLOWER SUIT + SEPARATES
Spring summer is where floral tailoring comes to life. For the fall season, flowers maintain their bloom but are updated in a midnight colour story.
Elevate the nature theme by combining florals with animal inspired designs.
5. THE CHECKLIST
Check offers a safe entry into the realm of patterned suits while still maintaining the traditional tailoring cues. Lean on the rich history of tartan with a tartan check suit. The most comfortable colour combination to wear is Black Watch. The mix of green and navy are colours that are familiar and easy to style.
Ditch the trousers, and let your blazer stand alone in a graphic overcheck. Tone down the colour palette for a subtle look.
