Short days + long nights = the party season is upon us.
Whether you’re thrilled at the opportunity to get your glad rags on, or you’re dreading the late nights, finding the right look (or looks!) is a major fun factor.

Meanwhile, vampy leather trousers by Saint Laurent pack just as much punch as the sauciest of party frocks, just add spiky heels and a sheer blouse for a sophisticated take on sex appeal.
Nothing says cocktail party season quite like a little black dress (we love Peter Dundas’ version with beaded fringing), and don’t forget all the finishing touches…
