Forget brights for party dressing: monochrome is just so much more chic. Here, pattern and texture are your friends. In this shoot, Pam takes on pyjama dressing and is the picture of laid-back cool, while Monique’s LBD is brightened up with fun tights; a shirt worn under Magdalena’s sparkly jumpsuit brings something playful to eveningwear. Of course, classics are welcome, too – see Lise’s floor-length slip dress, a timeless, after-dark look if ever there was one.
