The recent Instagram shot of Gilda Ambrosio, Giorgia Tordini and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley confirmed it: Choosing what to wear on a night out has become easier, and more exciting than it has in some time. For years we've been in the fancy-casual era where being OTT was frowned upon and not particularly cool and. For those of us who revel in getting dolled up, being understated is quite a difficult thing to do. "Oh, I just threw this on," only works when you genuinely have done so.
Now, the idea of planning a night-out outfit and allowing oneself to be fabulous in a head-turning, entrance-making array of feathers, sequins, heels, diamanté and lamé will appeal to many—myself included. Thank you, 2018.

Evening and cocktail attire is more popular than ever. Many of the luxury e-commerce sites are increasingly investing in it and there are party-ready pieces available year-round on the high street. But what's more is that it's also entirely acceptable to wear many of these elaborate items by day. An outrageously sparkly pair of shoes will look particularly current with a pair of jeans and a cosy jumper. So for your next going-out outfit, I'd highly recommend being inspired by any of the following looks.
