For a party-ready look that isn’t too OTT, you can’t go wrong with statement trousers. There’s an abundance of sequin styles out there for 2018, so I’m balancing out this show-stopping gold style with classic black separates.

There’s nothing cooler than taking the once-corporate trouser suit and giving it an evening-ready twist. This Raquel Diniz design has just the right amount of glitz and glam, and is busy enough that you can stick to low impact accessories – perfect for throwing on in those ‘nothing to wear’ moments.

I still can’t quite believe I’ve bought into the vinyl trend, but these trousers are essentially just a cool update on more classic leather – great for toughening up this amazing satin blouse. From its asymmetry to its statement red colour, it’s the ultimate going out top.

Fun, classic and cool, I love a LBD for a night out, and Self-Portrait’s version is my stand-out this winter. With its unusual neckline, sequin finish and zip detail, it veers just enough into 80s territory to have directional appeal, whilst still meeting all those traditional little black dress requirements.
