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.
