Evening Outfit Inspiration: All That Glitters

With every iteration of metallic knits, lamé separates and shimmering, beaded dresses sashaying down the Spring 2015 runways, we’re getting excited to slip into a glittery ensemble for our next evening on the town. Diaphanous metallic-painted tulle is perfectly suited for an early evening cocktail party, while high-wattage gold lamé takes your girl’s night ensemble to the next level. Here, we share a few of the inspirational runway looks and curate similar styles you can shine in now.

Take your cue from the runways of Wes Gordon and Jason Wu and opt for heavily beaded, monochromatic cocktail dresses in beautifully simple silhouettes.

This Zimmerman dress reads more ethereal than sweet thanks to the nude palette and midi hemline, while tiny flecks of gold thread add an unexpected pop. Wear with soft makeup and minimal accessories.

Modern Lamé

Peter Som's simple bandeau cut with a thigh-baring slit makes a huge impact. Keep lamé modern by teaming with slicked-back hair and luminous skin.

The silver lattice detail adds a subtle flair to the ladylike silhouette.

Modern Lame

We adore the cropped hemline and long sleeves of this pale blue shift.

Muted Lame

A multitalented belted shift in color-blocked lamé is subdued enough for day and easy to accessorize for evening.

Beaded Mini Dress

A beaded white gold minidress begs for nude sandals and the perfect glossy ponytail.
