5 Alternative Party Outfits To Try Now

If an LBD is the first thing you pull out when getting ready on a Friday night, you should probably check yourself and evaluate: Do I really want to wear that thing again? Sure, you could be Miss Classic. Or, you could turn to this season's fresh runway looks for new ideas. Below, five of our favorite spring-catwalk moments for weekend-outfit inspiration, along with similar goods to shop. Go on, werk that runway neighborhood bar tomorrow night.
The Matching Set: Seen At Suno
Don’t know what to wear for that last-minute cocktail party? Take a page out of Suno's book with a vibrant, sophisticated set.
The Graphic Dress: Seen At Roksanda Ilincic
Going somewhere fancy on a Saturday night requires a non-basic shift. We love the idea of a mostly black dress with glam accents like swirly colorblocking.
The Fancy Overalls: Seen At Karen Walker
Rather than reaching for your go-to jeans and pullover to head to a birthday soirée at your favorite bar, go for a sophisticated update on overalls — with a prim blouse underneath to balance their toughness.
The LWD: Seen At Chanel
Instead of an LBD, try an LWD with metallic accents. Bright booties enhance the look.
The Glam Denim Jacket: Seen At Burberry
Elevate your denim jacket with a pop of color on the collar — like this Burberry beauty — or another unexpected detail, like the stripes on the Harvey Faircloth stunner to the right. Pair it with a semi-sheer cocktail number, and you're dressed to go out.
