The Crazy Ornamented Blouse

Ruffles, ruching and even rhinestone and appliqué embellishments? Pair them with a little black skirt and satin heels for party time, then with distressed jeans and statement sneakers to brunch.

Sequined skirt

It seems super Paris-in-the-’70s sexy when paired with seamed stockings and a low-cut bodysuit, plus slouchy-heeled boots. But come daylight hours, you’re channeling an equally appealing ’90s-grunge-rebel look when you don the shiny skirt with a graphic T-shirt and sneaks.

Metallic Trousers

Gunmetal, burnished gold or shiny silver, metallic separates have moved from being party staples to daywear neutrals. Pair them with an elegant, flowing sweater and you’ll seem all “lady of the manor.” Except, you know, hip.

See-Through Separates

A tulle skirt, dress or gauzy chiffon blouse looks super sexy peeking out from beneath a jacket or over a lacy bra. Festive occasions call for wearing them as bare as you dare. (Then after you sober up in normal life, you can layer them over slips and camisoles.)

Feather Trim

Sure, for your night on the town you can throw on a feathered cape (or marabou jacket) over a satin dress and be très chic. Come day, rock the same piece with a tissue turtleneck and jeans for a daring fashon-insider vibe.

Satin shoes

Sure, maybe you’ve fallen in love with a high-heeled bonbon of a mule but mused, Where would I wear this, really? Answer: Where wouldn’t you wear these? This season, the sort of shoes previously reserved for garden parties and debutantes are showing up with tweed pantsuits, pajama pants and distressed denim.
