Deciding what to wear for a night out can be just as puzzling as figuring out where to go. Following the mountain of clothes that ensues on the bedroom floor, we’re all guilty of resorting to the oh-so-familar little black dress (you know, the one you wore last weekend?). Its chic-factor for dinner, drinks and dancing is undeniable, but let’s face it: no one wants to look like every other girl at the party. Enter three unexpected hero pieces that’ll up your evening outfit game for spring, transforming an easily cliché look into something more elevated, chic and alluring. Warning: you may never put on a body-con dress again.
