If you are struggling to curate the ideal evening wardrobe, then H&M are on hand with their conscious eveningwear collection full of updated tailoring classics. From longer length blazers to floral watercolour print shirts, here are the best eveningwear trends according to H&M.
THE FLORAL BROOCH
Wearing all the elements of a black-tie is a safe way to get past the dress code. However, when you start to experiment with the details, your outfit will come alive—moving from a dress code to a fashion-forward look. For H&M, this detail comes in the form of a floral brooch. The pale pastel colour contrasts against the black double-breasted blazer and replaces the need to wear a bow tie.
THE LONG LENGTH DOUBLE-BREASTED BLAZER
The double-breasted blazer is updated in a longer length silhouette falling just above the thigh area. Having extra fabric changes the attitude of the sartorial fit nodding to 70’s tailoring.
THE PRINTED SHIRT
The printed shirt is a worthy alternative to the standard white shirt during the party season. You can wear it alone, without a blazer, pairing it with your favourite tailored trousers or denim. The watercolour floral design gives the shirt a romantic feel and is printed on a silk blend base. While the shirt is a formidable look on its own, you can style it under a single-breasted blazer.
THE SINGLE-BREASTED BLAZER
An alternative to the double-breasted blazer is the single-breasted blazer which shares the longer length cut with a distinctive cotton twill texture.
These relaxed trousers are part of the twill suit and share the same texture and silhouette. To complement the longer shape of the blazer, the trousers have a wider fit with a slightly high waist.
THE TUXEDO SHIRT
Swap the printed shirt for the classic winged tip collared tuxedo shirt. Pair with their silk blend bow tie. While it is tempting to go for a pre-tied bow, you get extra points for learning to tie the perfect bow. At the end of the night, you can loosen the bow and channel your inner James Bond.
