How to Style Day-to-Night Partywear

Introducing the party pieces that aren’t just for parties. From high-octane sequins to lavish velvet, we show you how to take partywear from day to night using a few clever styling tricks, ensuring you get maximum mileage out of every evening look throughout the festive season.   


1. The Sequin Top


To the Party


Off to an after-dark invite? Now is your time to shine. Traditionally, sequin separates have tended to be styled with black denim but this party season, put your trust in a tapered trouser with tiny, twinkling stars to lend a more elevated feel to evening looks. Finish with blue velvet accessories in midnight blue.


In the Day


How to pull off evening sequins in the day? The key is to downplay statement sparkle with a pared-back pairing – and we think denim makes the perfect plus-one. Straight-leg jeans in dark wash blue counteract the illuminating effect of light-catching silvers, while classic white trainers add to the relaxed aesthetic. Weekend style, perfected.   


2. The Velvet Suit


To the Party


The secret to extending the longevity of the modern trouser suit is to consider each piece as a stand-alone style hero.  For party season, take a softly-tailored velvet blazer and pair it with a silky blue cami and black denim to create a dancefloor-ready combination that’s fluent in both glamour and elegance. Complete the look with block-heeled sandals in plush black velvet.


In the Day


Too good to save for when the lights go out: a velvet trouser is your festive season statement-maker. Repurpose it for daytime diary dates with a sumptuously soft chenille knit in ivory, and accessorise with a mock-croc bag and classic Chelsea boots with flattering mid-block heels.
