For the party animals, partying never stops. And for non-party animals, party invites may be few and far between, but they’re always fun. Party animal or not, if you’re partying this summer, do it in style with our chic and trendy picks.
Metallic dresses and jackets were party staples late 2010 and they’re still around. Update last year’s wardrobe by opting for a muted metallic look—choose a dress that’s got just the right touch of gold or silver, rather than screaming metal all over.

White, or something like it
While white dresses and gowns are making a comeback this summer, we recommend whites with prints and colour blocking, along with off-whites for the ladies who want to look sophisticated. Choose a dress with an easy silhouette or drapes, pair with a pop or metallic belt, clutch or shoes, and party all night!

For the bolder party girls, we’re loving the pop-coloured dresses this season. Pick a dress in your favourite bright colour (solid or printed), and pair with neutral pumps and clutch.
