We've been talking about leopard for the last few seasons and it won't stop now! But don't show all your spots at once-keep you touches small, like a leopard-print clutch in a bold red or blue. Wear it with a classic party dress like the always-chic Diane Kruger.

Dressy Coat

Evening-appropriate outerwear is always a toughie, but thanks to this season's dressed-up coat, you can take a break from your pashmina. A metallic belted style, like Gwyneth Paltrow's, looks fabulous over an LBD and is chic enough to be worn alone.
