Gareth Pugh’s indulgent creations seem to step straight from our dreams onto the runway. I love his imaginative style. Honestly, why can’t pants have trains?? I hate when a party kicks into high gear, and I’m stuck on the sidelines in a constricting floor-length gown. Now we get glamour and function in one pretty package. It’s ‘70s gone chic, but thanks to the luxe black silk, the flared look is surprisingly modern. The train pools dramatically at your ankles. Don’t worry about stepping on it, though – the silk trails elegantly behind you. Just make sure other people don’t trip on it! Play it safe and wear some towering platforms like these 6-inch Alaïas (on NET-A-PORTER for $2,415). The chunky sandals will help swim through the crowd, whether it’s inside a packed party or on the red carpet. Available on Ssense for $2,475.
