Want a twist on the metallic dress? How about a metallic jumpsuit instead? We like Hayley’s silver wide-legged version that is versatile enough to be dressed up with heels, or down with sneakers and loafers. 

Pair it with:

A textured jacket for keep off the chills on a rainy December evening or simply to add panache.

We recommend:

Belinda adds interest to a modest calf-length black dress with interesting detailing like an asymmetrical hemline and line prints.

Pair it with

Sculptural heels to draw the eye downwards and add textural interest to the whole look.

Nobody rocks a skin-tight mini dress like Jean, who carried off her grey mesh dress with rock ‘n’ roll cool complete with a studded biker jacket and thigh-high boots. We like this more feminine version from ASOS, thanks to its fluted sleeves and delicate lace fabric.

Pair it with

Booties or chunky heels; and the accessory of the season – dangly earrings. Avoid skinny sky-scraper heels if you don’t want to risk coming off a little skanky.

Edwin’s daring red suede Bally suit drew him tons of admiring glances at the recent Singapore International Film Festival. Go for something a little less showy, but still as head-turning, in a tan faux suede shirt-jacket hybrid.   

Pair it with

Just about anything really! Denim jeans, black suit trousers or dressy shirt or plain white tee – this is one versatile wardrobe essential for the gent who loves a bit of attention.

Nothing beats a fire-engine red dress for drama, as Zoe shows here in this Lanvin stunner. But you don’t need to blow your annual salary for a similarly stunning outfit. Make sure that you pick the perfect shade of red (nothing too dull or pink-toned) and go for a simple but flattering cut to let the bold colour speak for itself.

Pair it with

Elegantly strappy shoes, ideally in a metallic shade rather than black or nude.

ASOS Pleated Maxi With Strappy Neck Dress, $81.89, from ASOS

A peplum bustier gown is a red-carpet classic for the way it never fails to make its wearer look elegant, sensual and lithe all at once. Opt for one in a bold shade, like Jayley’s emerald green or this red one from Preen & Proper.

Pair it with

Chunky, sparkly shoulder-dusters to ensure that you’re the belle of the ball.

We recommend:

Preen & Proper Cascading Peplum Maxi Dress, $69.90, from Zalora

We adore how a gold outfit instantly helps to add radiance to the face and formality to an outfit. Simone’s gorgeous one-shoulder top was converted from an old Marchesa dress, but we think this plunge-front jumpsuit from Topshop will do the trick. Opt for a classy beaten-gold shade instead of the yellow-gold side of the spectrum.  

Pair it with

Dramatic makeup – red lips go so well with gold – but keep the other accessories to a minimum with all that shimmer and shine.

We recommend:

Topshop Gold Foil Halterneck Jumpsuit, $106

Trust Jeanette for the cool-girl’s take on party wear. Do like she does, and pair a luxe, voluminous jacquard skirt with a casual cotton slogan tee. 

Pair it with

Footwear that’s as cool as the outfit, like a pair of limited-edition sneakers or pointy-toed booties.

We recommend:

H&M Conscious Jacquard Weave Skirt, $99.90 and Printed Top in Femme, $44.95

For dudes who want to stand out of the crowd, it’s hard to go wrong with a boldly-printed top and interestingly textural shoes, like Desmond here in his Prada outfit.

Pair it with

Plain black trousers. Too many clashing prints and textures can look clownish. 

We recommend:

Zara Man Floral Viscose Shirt, $69.90 and Brown Fringed Leather Shoes, $179

Love the figure-flattering shape of the classic fit-and-flare dress but worried about it looking too boring? Take a leaf from Paige’s book by picking one with a sparkly or interesting print. The thigh-skimming hemline of this Zalora dress also adds a youthful zing to the look.

Pair it with

Heels are a must, and don’t be afraid to pile on the chunky accessories and eyeliner to make it more party-worthy.

We recommend:

Zalora Button Tab Fit and Flare Dress, $29.90
