Though the holiday season has come to a close, for us, party time lasts all year round. Whether you’re pulling an all-nighter of NYFW madness or just cozying up for a pre-Valentine’s date night, any reason is all the reason you need to do the most. Throw on the disco ball dress, pile on the diamonds and add an oil-slick glossy lid. Guaranteed to make a magpie out of even the most modest.
Whoever said cutouts were reserved exclusively for clubwear has clearly never met this Prabal Gurung dress. Strategically placed slashes give a not-so-subtle hint at the waistline, while the striped, swiss-dot poplin balances out the overt sensuality. The trick is to avoid any body-hugging silhouettes and opt instead for oversized shapes. Throw on some studs for good measure and your look is complete.

New years in New York might have left some with post-traumatic-sequin disorder, but its sparkling sister – the paillette – somehow feels fresh and grown up. This Valentino number is a KiraKira+ dream with contrasting panels of dense midnight velvet for extra drama. Wear à la Briggs, posed pinup style on a brasserie bar.

Want the shine without the sparkle? Opt for a bright lemony yellow mock-neck sheath, in crinkled velvet, of course. The look screams simple elegance with a fashion edge. And yellow is a surprisingly entry-level primary color to add some color to drab winter nights.
