Ball gowns and princess dresses are making a comeback the likes of which haven’t been seen since the glorious excesses of the 1980s. But when the party invitation encourages you to put on your finest frocks, you need not confine yourself to the skirted variety. In a feather embellished blazer paired with contrast trimmed tuxedo pants, you can let your inner coquette out - without being too obvious. Here’s how to get the look:
1. Start with a drippy blouse paired with contrast piped tuxedo pants.
2. Slip on a snow white blazer with a special twist - ostrich feathers dusting the hemline of the jacket.
3. Texture is what makes this look. Echo the texture of the blazer with accessories that give you tactile pleasure - a beaded bauble necklace, a leopard print clutch, and a gorgeous pair of cutout booties.
