The Zarita is every woman at the party. That may sounds like a stretch, but we promise it’s true. A seasonless, best selling style, this stretch lace number is super flattering and always feels fresh, thanks to a mix of tradition and sex appeal that works for every occasion. In our Resort collection’s blue lagoon hue, this particular Zarita is a standout, feeling current but never trendy with a glamorous assortment of gilded accessories: a dancing heel, an envelope clutch and a striking bracelet. Oh, here’s a tip: this is our go-to when attire isn’t specified. Try it, we dare you—you’ll definitely be well-dressed!

The Jewel wrap is like the perfect guest: she’s always festive, but never too much. This dress brings together our enduring jersey wrap top that hugs and flatters, with a circle skirt in the beaded floral lace of our Kaleb shift dress. To play up the party mood of the Jewel, we love styling it with a crystal-encrusted minaudière, and a lace heel that matches the solid top, yet brings out the exquisite detail in the skirt. All charms that linger long after the party is over.

The Kendra is the life of any party: she’s adventurous and spirited, without overshadowing the hostess. What we love most about the Kendra jumpsuit is the ease: it’s lace with stretch that’s flattering and soft, with an elastic waist that doesn’t take any fussing—and doesn’t take away from the polish of a black floor-length look. Speaking of polish, we love matching the Kendra to a lace heel, and adding a super glamorous clutch for shine. Like the girl who leaves you with a smile when she walks away, the Kendra has a parting wink of her own: a daring open back that’s sure to turn heads in any room.

The Kaleb dress is like the perfect hostess: it’s dazzling, adaptable and puts everyone at ease. In a stunning beaded floral over lace, the sleeveless shape is a versatile choice that can be worn alone or over a sheer black blouse, pairing with a delicate gold heel or solid black suede over tights. Just pick up a matching clutch and you’ve perfectly accessorized our favorite party dress for this holiday season!

It’s the save the date that makes us pause every time: the office holiday party. For a dress that goes day to night (with the same crowd) we’re turning to the Arabella. In black and white polka dots, this bow tie dress has a playful point of view, while keeping a conservative silhouette that’s office-appropriate. A pavé embellished bangle and printed heel can carry you all day, while a bright crossbody comes out after dark to add a lively, refreshing pop of color.

The inspiration for our Resort collection was the “Rebel Princess,” the woman who knows the rules, but approaches them with a fresh and unexpected twist. Our Look 1 wrap dress, the new Caprice, perfectly epitomizes the spirit, taking our super feminine jersey-and-chiffon Irina dress, and reimagining it with a pieced skirt in two petite prints for a sweet yet rebellious feel. Adding a sexy, minimal new heel and fishnet-effect sequin clutch, the Caprice is ready to stir up the start of the holiday season.

This wrap dress silhouette made its debut in a collection inspired by summer in the South of France. But in a dark, dramatic floral, the Riviera wrap looks ready for autumn nights. Featuring a dropped chiffon skirt with an asymmetrical hem, this dress can stand up to black tie-worthy accessories like the Valene glitter heel and a metallic snake clutch. We should warn you the soft, silk jersey top is so comfortable you won’t want to reserve this dress for occasions, so make it an off-duty look slipped under an oversized sweater with tights and boots for the winter months.

These boots were made for turning heads, in luxurious, deep red python. A favorite shape of Diane’s, with a rounded toe and straight heel, the Gladyss is the essential statement boot for fall that’s perfect with black jeans and a long blazer or the Lillian, our favorite desk-to-dinner staple. Taking a bit of inspiration from supermodel Karlie Kloss, we’re finishing this look with Harper shades and a go-anywhere DVF Secret Agent tote.

We love the story of this DVF essential: first, Diane was inspired to create the wrap dress by the little sweater ballerinas wear, then forty years later, she adapted it to be perfect for every woman. This season, we’re really celebrating the ballerina wrap sweater in this beautifully textured confetti tweed, embellished with beading across the neck. Pulled tightly over a black chiffon skirt and bright heels, this sweater is ready for the workday, or loosen up with jeans, heels and a studded clutch for a festive evening out.

Let’s talk about gowns for a moment. The word may invoke Charles James-esque corsetry, but there’s no better way to describe the new DVF Faustine: with a floor-length skirt in black and lacquer red and a sheer lace back, this gown isn’t lacking in drama. In woven silk jersey, it also couldn’t be easier to live in, move in, or pack and bring on the road. So go ahead, grab those dancing shoes and a touch of sparkle, and be the life of any party.

Fashion month, with its endless parade of impossibly long legs, has finally come to a close, but it left us with a fresh perspective on the evening hours. It Girls, Instagirls—call them what you will, but today’s top models made a strong case for the micro-mini after hours. Our favorite way to achieve the look is this tuxedo romper, which shows off the leg, but is still buttoned up for a polished feel. A beautifully tailored smoking jacket and cage heel add sophistication, while an assortment of Secret Agent clutches mix things up all season long. For further proof that this is the fresh new look for Fall, check out the tuxedo romper’s chic turns on Kristen Stewart and Nina Dobrev!
