Dark Glamour

The end of October signals a swift uptick in holiday spirit. From formal dinners to festive fundraisers to fanciful dance floors, the invitations are set to start pouring in. As your social calendar grows, so too must your closet. Whether you have a weakness for mini dresses or high shine separates, we curated the perfect party looks to help you dial up the glamour – red lips and fluttery lashes included. Read on for our definitive guide to the most sensational designs of the season.

The Modern LBD

Offering endless styling options, the little black dress is wardrobe hero. Of course, that doesn’t mean it has to be basic. 


Eveningwear expert Sabina Musayev hits the nail on the head with her jet-black velvet number, laden with design details. Shoulder pads! Ruching! Cut outs! It has it all, yet the midnight shade whispers quiet elegance. 


Alternatively, consider Sachin & Babi’s one-shoulder style that is sure to become an on-repeat evening go-to. Its strict silhouette sculpted from faux-leather cuts a lean line, softened only by the kick of the skirt as you step. Shrug on a menswear-inspired blazer to add yet another layer of luxury.

The Return of the Mini

A dramatic silhouette isn’t restricted to floor sweeping styles. This season, slip into playful minis as an antidote to the sea of midis that will no doubt greet you at the door. 


The husband-and-wife team behind New York-based brand Sachin & Babi are strong advocates for the leg-baring length. Their one-shoulder satin stunner with swooping skirt comes in a statement-making scarlet and is made for shimmying across the dance floor. 


On a similar note, Sabina Musayev’s glittering plissé dress in navy is unmissable. Featuring a romantic row of covered buttons and a deep v neckline, it may be petite, but it packs a mighty punch. 

All That Glitters

High shine finds its stride during the holidays. With celebrations in full swing, there is no better time to break out a year's worth of sequins, shimmer, and glimmer. 


For a modern metallic moment, look to Sabina Musayev. The Israeli designer outdoes herself with a dress done up in delicate silver pleats, barely-there straps, and a leg-baring slit. 


Luster lovers can also satisfy their taste for twinkle thanks to Frame, who puts a contemporary spin on sparkle with a bedazzled, boned bustier and magenta cargo pants. A maximalist’s dream, the interplay of black beads and shocking satin is at once unexpected and effortless. 

The Anti-Dress

Thinking beyond suiting, tailored separates are an elevated alternative to the party dress. 


Case in point: leopard and leather. Frame’s attention-grabbing velvet blazer is a decadent foil for Mother’s faux leather pants and needs only a slinky cami to complete the look. 


Another under-the-radar duo is a jumpsuit and jacket. The flowing fabric of Chiara Boni’s strapless version provides the perfect backdrop for Frame’s Barbie-like blazer – a festive piece that has both office and after-dark potential.
