10 Unexpected Party Outfits (AKA Reasons To Leave Your Bodycon At Home)
We love a bodycon dress as much as Kim Kardashian does, but sometimes your going out-out style needs shake up (even if it seems like an impossible task).
From gamechanging pants to sleek AF blazers, on-trend textures like lush velvet, satin and lace to takes on layering for all your bar-hopping plans - we've got the combos you won't be seeing anywhere else on the dancefloor.
So keep things fire and leave your bodycon dress at home (at least for this week).
Generally relegated to your 9-5 life, sleek pants are a super strong contender when it comes to your after-dark attire. Comfy, flattering and basically impossible to get wrong, they also have that amazing desk-to-dinner appeal. Steer away from a corporate feel with flirty sheer detailing, kick flares or sultry splits.
Texturising ain't just for your hair. Try tried and true silhouettes with a lush twist - think velvet, satin with contrast lace trim or sharp as knife pleating in jumpsuits, shorts and plunging shirts.
Co-ords are a party staples - but there's more to your set than just t a crop and mini skirt. Experiment with high backs and delicate eyelet detailing, flirty cutouts or tie detailing to elevate your two-piece above the rest.
