    Must-Try Look #1: A Super Long Skirt + Top

    While a long gown can feel either too dressy or too predictable, a separates version is totally relevant and, quite simply, more fun

    A full-length skirt or even a floor-grazing sequined skirt can be paired with a crop top, tank, sweater, or tee.

    Must-Try Look #2: A Mini Dress + Leather Leggings

    Dip into your swingy mini dress stash and try pairing it with a pair of super-fitted leather leggings

    Do a semi-tuck of the little dress in the front, so that you can see your waist and hips, while letting the mini flow in a flattering way down your back and sides. You'll be not only super original, but supremely warmer as well.

    Must-Try Look #3: A Tuxedo

    Take a traditional men’s tux and make it yours!  A sexy little blazer and matching trousers—ideally fitted to either be cropped and tapered, or hitting at your natural waist and with a wide-leg—is a charming and fun

    Pair with some killer heels—perhaps in red or metallic—and don’t skimp on sweet shiny jewelry and lipstick to up the feminine factor.
