Eveningwear Is Cool Again
A fresh wave of designers are reinventing the concept of dressing up, and Saks is championing them all. Gone are the boring LBDs, going-out tops, and stuffy formal gowns, and in their place come a new slew of fun, edgy-yet-glamorous dresses and jumpsuits that'll really make you want to party.
The cool young things designing it all—like Alessandra Rich (a major fave of British socialites), Alexandre Vauthier, and Attico—are creating pieces that are bursting with color, embellishments, and prints.
And best of all, everything is made to dance in—so much so that you just might be tempted to stay out until the early hours of the morning.

Breakfast at Saks
The classic black gown Holly Golightly sported after having a night out on the town is an undeniably iconic moment, but today's modern girl is all about making a statement.
Sara Battaglia’s sequin-ruched ankle-grazing dress does all the talking here, meaning minimal accessories are required. This silk one-shoulder jumpsuit has a casual and charmingly playful element to it (i.e. an elasticized waist tie) that can easily translate from night to day. Soon, rocking a full-on mashup of color and pattern will feel just as simple as throwing on a T-shirt.

Color is the name of the game. A pink Magda Butrym dress checks all the best-of-the-'80s boxes: potent prints, ruching, a nipped-in waist, and legs for days. Not to mention statement shoulders that are much sleeker and less fussy than their predecessors.
An all-velvet Attico gown is the perfect solve to a "what do I wear?" situation. And because of its uber chicness, you can get away with minimal thought elsewhere; ballet flats look just as appropriate as heels do when worn against a bold, plush fabric.

Attico's dual designers Giorgia Tordini and Gilda Ambrosio have brought us back to the days when dressing-up was a joy and less a chore (look to their personal style for some extra inspiration). Take their blooming motif into the new season with a tie-shoulder and liquid velvet slip. It's a romantic, glamorous look for the modern-day woman, and proof that floralscanbe a year-round pattern.
Colombian fiesta touches toughen up Johanna Ortiz’sromantic aesthetic for fall, and this feminine ruffle number with balloon-sleeve magic makes it an effortless choice for any occasion.

We can all agree that the spaghetti strap is nothing groundbreaking, but this iteration is plenty noteworthy, with embellishments, deep slits, and lots of sequins.
The trick when looking for adifferenttype of dress is to keep an eye out for the details. A knotted bodice or cascading ruffle trim give sparkles a casual-cool effect. Keep accessories simple for that on-the-go attitude. Instead of an oversized tote, opt for a clutch or top-handle bag for easy mobility.
