Best Bet: Topshop Metallic Bouclé Romper

Your LBD needs a break this season. So does the phrase “LBD,” actually. So let’s retire the tired party trend and revel in Topshop’s metallic romper. It’s silvery enough to feel festive without being covered in sequins, yet versatile enough to be worn — with or without tights — for most situations. During the day, wear a crisp white Oxford shirt underneath, buttons done up to the collar. At night, swap the blouse for a boustier and add a leather jacket. Voila! You’re all set. Now let’s retire “voila,” too.
