Last week when I was in Las Vegas, one of my most complimented outfits was a white linen pantsuit a la Bianca Jagger in the 1970s. While menswear is a trend that circles back often, I’ve been seeing some great examples of the evening tux lately that make me want to put the LBD aside in favor of the Little Black Suit. Take, for instance, Hailee Steinfeld at the MTV Movie Awards last week. I am smitten with her Louis Vuitton tuxedo paired with an emerald green and black mica striped clutch by Edie Parker. So chic, and yet she makes it perfectly age-appropriate by wearing her hair loose and donning a simple white t-shirt.
Get Hailee’s look with this DEVI KROELL Swarovski Wooden Clutch or this GUCCI Parrot Green Snakeskin Clutch. The pop of bright color adds jus the right touch to a mature outfit.
I also liked the stark simplicity of Kirsten Dunst in Patrick Ervell at the CFDA Awards in New York City. While it’s very buttoned up, the contrasting blue lapel and oversized hoop earrings give it a polished edge. Make this look your own with these DAVID ALAN 18K Yellow & Diamond Gold Hoop Earrings or go for all-out glam with these 18k White gold & Diamond Hoop Earrings.

Lately all the young starlets have been taking to the red carpet in peek-a-boo black lace dresses. Just in the past couple of weeks, Emma Watson stepped out in Rafael Lopez, Taylor Swift chose Jenny Packham and Kirsten Dunst wore just-off-the-runway Valentino. It’s interesting to see just how different these similar fabrics can look—Emma is sexy and sassy, Taylor is black-tie-ready, and Kirsten’s choice could go from day to night.
One thing that could tie all of these dresses together? A great pair of diamond earrings. Since lace is so intricate, I would choose a retro button or vintage style that doesn’t take away from the details of the dress. Check out our favorites below:
