How to spice up your partywear

by Svetlana Legetic (DC)

Here in DC, once spring hits, we’re in full-blown art-party mode: every museum, every gallery and every empty space seems to be throwing an event, which, of course, challenges you to show off your cocktailwear best. So over at my blog, BrightestYoungThings, we did a fun partywear shoot on location at the gorgeous Corcoran Gallery of Art to showcase our take on dressing up.

This light, bright, near-preppy angle features a white Charade Blazer (left) and a Metallic Meshwork Sweater-Top (right) over a very buttoned-up but sheer Dandelion Dot Top. Lucky guy, huh?

This tomboyish yet ladylike look, featuring the Scallop Lace Top, was a hands-down favorite. (Between you and me, the pearls didn’t come from the ocean—so it is possible to look chic without the price tag.)

Happy art partying!
