Here's How the Stars Are Doing Party Outfits in 2018
Having a great night in a perfect party outfit is one of life's most underrated joys. There's seriously no better feeling (sartorially speaking, at least) than stepping into whatever birthday soirée/office Christmas party/grandma's 80th you happen to be attending feeling amazing in whatever you're wearing, from your carefully-selected earrings to much-loved heels that don't destroy your feet. And with party season well and truly upon us, now is the time to get focused on these small successes.
To get in the mood we've decided to look to the A-list for a little inspiration. Of course there are a few elements, archetypal of party dressing, that weren't hard to come by: luxe fabrics like satin and silk (Elsa Hosk's impressive Alessandra Rich dress comes to mind); glamorous silhouettes (take Kate Moss's velvet jumpsuit); and stand-out accessories to complete the look (make sure you don't miss Kate Bosworth's diamond choker). Saying that, Adwoa Aboah proves that party dressing is no exact science, in her typically cool take. Scroll on for the best celebrity party looks we've seen this season.
Style Notes: Our forever style muse Alexa Chung expertly demonstrates how to keep your party look chic even after making your exit via the Saks Potts coat of our dreams. There's our club-to-cab look sorted.
Style Notes: When it comes to party dressing, Adwoa Aboah's tends to mix feminine dresses with accessories that stay true to her cool-girl style DNA. Copy accordingly with a floral dress and heavy-duty gold-wear. And would you look at that bag...
Style Notes: Leomie Anderson demonstrates the enduring power of an oversized trouser suit. While Leomie's is vintage, we've scouted a similar Topshop version below.
Style Notes: Yet another strong case for satin, Kate Bosworth's party look falls at the formal end of the scale. Side note: we're majorly digging the diamond choker.
