WHAT TO WEAR: On A Winter Night Out

Winter cocktail events can cause a serious sartorial dilemma: style or warmth? Because even once you’re indoors, bare shoulders in the middle of sub-zero temperatures somehow doesn’t seem right. So when we spotted this look from the DKNY Resort 2011 collection, a light bulb went off. Little evening numbers do not have to be relegated to the back of the closet ’til spring! Cop this unexpected style cue and wear a simple button-up shirt underneath a sleeveless dress for an unexpected twist and additional cozy layer. A regal gold & black colour combo and intricately patterned tights keep the look evening-appropriate. Here are our picks for a glam winter evening:
