How Party Dressing Will Be Different This Year

Shannon Thomas, owner of Désordre, is an expert in party dressing. Her Darlinghurst boutique in Sydney is the shop to drop in at for a special party look. She talked to We Wore What to share her knowledge on how to dress for this season’s upcoming parties.

Inseparable Separates

“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.”

Shoes

“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.”

Show off your assets

“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.”
