“This roomy silhouette

The crazy sequined bag makes the whole look playful.

“I always choose a fun, bright color rather than black because it feels less serious and formal.”

“This dress is casual on the top, but all party on the bottom—the ultimate not-trying-too-hard combination.”

Animal print tones down the serious factor.

“The color and classic pleats feel safe and refined, but the chunky jeweled necklace and leopard-print clutch take the whole look in a cooler direction.”
