There's no better way to celebrate the end of a long January workweek than with a glass of wine (or two!), good eats, and the company of friends. Yes, our hermetic Netflix binge session can wait until tomorrow night — as can our sweats. But, after a whole month of holiday dressing, we're in dire need of a new going-out look that doesn't read so festive.
The black-and-white number from Jason Wu's resort '14 collection is basically the ultimate party blouse — sequins, sheer, and beading — that, surprisingly, doesn't go overboard in the sparkle department. If you don't have $3,320 to splurge on the designer original, try Topshop's tropical-print top as a cheaper alternative, and pair it with black slacks, strappy sandals, and a colorblock clutch. This getup proves that neutral looks can be just as interesting as their colorful counterparts. And, we'll definitely toast to that!
