In a bash as epic as, say, Mondrian's Soho opening, where you're jostling for dance floor space with a crowd of deliciously stylish eye-candy like Prabal Gurung, Mia Moretti and Brad Goreski, standing out can be quite a challenge. Interior designer Natalie Obradovich, however, steals the klieg lights (oh so nonchalantly), by wearing her very own disco ball. All eyes were on the blonde as she shimmied around in silver-sequined pants that would have made even mermaids envious. And with such a scene-stealing piece, you'd be wise to keep the rest of your outfit on the down-low, which Miss O. did by donning a simple black tank, black moto leather jacket, and understated earthy extras. With an outfit like this, you'll still look smashing, not smashed, even if you end up taking home a massive hangover the day after.
Here are five essentials to get Natalie's scene-stealing party look!
Essential #1: The Leather Jacket: Our throw-over-anything piece when we want to look instantly hip.
AllSaints Belvedere Jacket, $450, available at AllSaints.
Essential # 2: The Sequined Pant: Bound to be the cornerstone of any outrageous outfit. Some might say they're impractical, but we see this fabulous piece as one you'll hang on to forever. Dress down with a tank, like Natalie did, or dress up with a silky top.
ADAM Sequined Pants, $445, available at Revolve Clothing .
Essential # 3: Suede Shoes: Something that we'd normally wear to work proves to be surprisingly versatile and works as an after-hours pump as well. A low heel ensures you won't be limping home after the party.
Topshop Cut Out Suede Heels, $125, available at Topshop.
Essential # 4: The Tan Clutch: A detachable strap means this clutch doubles as shoulder bag, perfect when you want to keep your hands free to hold your drinks or take that cutie's number.

Essential # 5: Gold Bangles: Keep it simple by stacking on thin cuffs that don't compete with the statement your pants are making.
