The Bestest Party Looks of the Week

This week’s party looks really get into the spirit of summer, including some of the best shades of pink and all kinds of crops and cutouts to beat the heat. Influencer Bretman Rock was seen out in an ingenious (and, arguably, a more practical) take on a traditional suit, and British recording artist Aaron Paul set a new bar for what to wear to an indie-film screening. To decide for yourself who was best dressed this week, scroll below.

The Best-Dressed Pair

We love everything about entrepreneur Delanique Millwood’s look — from her waist cutouts to her little green bag — and Igee Okafor’s suit game offers the perfect complement.

Bretman Rock understands that it is simply too hot in New York to wear a suit.

Best Barbie Look-alike

We can’t decide if Mariahlynn’s look is more Barbie or “7 rings,” but either way, this pink dress is pretty glam.

Best Denim

We’ve seen a fair share of great denim trends over the past few months
(like crossover jeans and painted pieces), but we love the mixed shades and puffy sleeves on Kitty Ca$h’s jacket.

Most Dazzling

Every time I look at this outfit, I discover something new about it. The long leather coat, the turquoise detailing — what more could you want? Less is not more. More is more.

Best Formalwear

Dr. Rajan’s dress has me thinking magenta should be a more widely worn color — and the tasteful shine of the fabric definitely levels it up.
