    5 Ways To Master Evening Co-ords

    A great dress is typically our party go-to; however, this season we find ourselves leaning towards matching evening separates. It’s something about the room-owning confidence that a perfectly cut suit gives us, not to mention the ease of a coordinating set. What’s more, with versatility always at the top of our minds, these pieces can be styled and re-styled for many parties to come. Here are the cocktail-ready duos to try.

    THE ‘LE SMOKING’ SUIT

     

    When Yves Saint Laurent introduced the Le Smoking tuxedo suit in 1966, he changed women’s evening dress forever. More than 50 years later and the sharp look is still relevant. Fit is key; you want a slim silhouette with crisp lines. Touches of satin give additional glamour. Wear it with a classic tux shirt or switch things up with a sequin vest.

    THE SKIRT SET

     

    A matching skirt set has the appeal of a dress but with the added versatility of separates that can be styled up with other pieces in your party wardrobe. Choose the top and skirt shapes that speak to you – be that a camisole and slip or shirt and maxi. Wear together for smart dress codes, then respin with jeans and luxe knits for festive dinners with friends.

    THE KNITTED SEPARATES

     

    Here is where cosy meets cocktail. Knitwear dressing is a seasonal staple and can be effortlessly taken into the evening by choosing premium sets with refined silhouettes. Go for a festive shade or add extra pizzaz with a metallic finish. Extend style mileage by layering the top with cigarette trousers. A dazzling pair of earrings and clutch is all you need to complete the look.

    PYJAMA DRESSING

     

    The best nights out are spent in comfort and this is where pyjama dressing excels. Loose cuts and stretchy waistbands allow ease of movement, but still deliver on style. Reach for classic cuts in weighty silk and satin or trimmed with feathers. You’ll want to go dressy on accessories to keep the look elevated, so embellished shoes, statement bags and cocktail jewellery are a must.

    THE VELVET SUIT

     

    Plush velvet immediately says evening luxe, so even styled with a classic white T-shirt and simple hoops, this set will bring the party. The tip is to look for thick velvet pile, which looks sumptuous, and steer clear of anything with a shiny finish. Wear with the aforementioned pieces for low-key events, then dress it up with a bib-front shirt and heels for formal occasions.
