    Must-Try Look# 1: A Slim Suit

    We love the idea of approaching the ultimate girly party with some cool irony. In this case, try a slim suit that is equal parts Annie Hall and Keith Richards. A navy or dark suit works best worn with a simple white tee or ‘70s-inspired blouse.

    While a strappy little heel can add a dose of femininity, a sweet oxford shoe will complete your menswear-inspired look with a wink.

    Must-Try Look #2: A Wide Leg Pant and Feminine Top

    Play with proportions by trying an ultra-wide leg pant (a trouser, perhaps?) with a ladylike blouse.

    Add impact by picking a blouse with sweet flutter sleeves or dainty details, such as lace or embroidery.

    Must-Try Look #3: Maxi Dress With A Blazer

    Revive your maxi dresses by adding a smart blazer. A floral frock turns edgy with the addition of a little black jacket and some chunkier, rock-inspired jewelry.

    Must-Try Look #4: ‘60s Swing Dress with Tights

    Opt for a ‘60s-inspired dress that is fuller in proportion and cool in color. An opaque tight will keep you properly covered, and a chunkier pump or heeled oxfords will help balance your head-to-toe look.
