Every year, party season rolls around quicker than before. The exciting part about this year though, is that from what we’ve started to see drop into store, the offering feels different to past seasons. Body-con dresses and your typical skinny-jeans-and-cami-combos are making way for fresh options.
Shannon Thomas, owner of Désordre, is an expert in the party dressing field. Her boutique in Sydney’s Darlinghurst feels like a walk-in wardrobe. Girls like to drop in before an event, have a styling session, and walk out with a special new look.
We asked Thomas to share her knowledge on what we can expect to see in store this season. Keep scrolling to see what she had to say!
"Skirt/top combos absolutely fly off the racks. Designed to go together, but purchased separately, they provide so many options. You get more longevity out of these items by being able to mix and match the pieces. They can be styled together for a dressier look, or separated with casual pieces, like a silk-slip camisole or wide-leg culottes. Change-up the shoe, and the whole look is different again. These have been around for a few seasons, but they'll be big for party season this year."
"The best thing about fashion is that right now, trends are so fluid. We can wear anything anywhere (well, almost). A beautiful high heel dresses up the most simple of outfits. Investing in a beautiful statement heel like a pair of Sophia Webster’s, allows tailored shorts and a basic top, or a simple dress to take you places like never before."
"But in a classy way. It’s no secret that wellness is #trending and with time in the gym at an all-time high, it’s no surprise girls want to show off their hard work. While keeping it classy of course. Think low Vs on fronts and backs, short hemlines with high necks and unexpected cut-outs and slits."
