It’s 2016 and you’re a cool girl-about-town, which is why Savoir Flair thinks it’s about time you ditched the traditional cocktail dress. We’re re-writing the golden rules of eveningwear and proposing to revamp your after-dark look with not one but 18 outside-the-box outfit ideas to help you steal the show on your next night out.

Short Circuit

Daytime shorts and skirts are no longer reserved just for daytime. Take your style cues from Rihanna, Zendaya, and Chiara Ferragni and pair a smart-casual ensemble with fancy and over-the-top accessories for a glamorous feel with a low-maintenance approach.

Who Wears the Pants?

Pants are the new sartorial standout for the evening and make for an unexpected party style. They are sophisticated and chic and will get you noticed for your daring attitude. Team them with a structural top for a high-fashion spin that is so now like Diane Kruger and Zendaya, or keep it elegant yet sexy like Olivia Wilde and Lily Donaldson by going for a top with high shine and delicate details.

Maximum Lengths

For an easy eveningwear update that looks and feels fresh, opt for maxi skirts with thigh-high slits or wear a pair of lingerie-inspired shorts underneath a sheer skirt like Chiara Ferragni. Accessorizing with a faux-fur stole or a belt goes a long way and keeps your look interesting and unexpected, as well as elegant and edgy at the same time.
