When + Wear: Cocktail Party vs. Black Tie

This season we're showing you how, when and where to wear our favorite pieces. With wedding season and summer events right around the corner, we asked sister duo @palmbeachlately to style two of our best Parker Black dresses for any invite. From cocktail parties to black tie weddings and galas, see their styling tips below.

When: Cocktail Party

Wear: Rowan Dress

How: Polished Monochromatic Look 

I am wearing the Rowan Dress – a perfect, fun sequin dress for any party. I love the bow on the shoulder and how the dress shimmers. It makes for the perfect cocktail party dress! I added white tassel earrings and kept things simple with a nude heel and matching nude clutch.

My style: Monochromatic. I often stick to my favorite color palette – blush, white gold and gray. Whether I'm working out or going out, you can usually find me in one of those colors. Dresses are typically my go-to and have a love for white and blush dresses.  

#1 Style Tip: Wear what makes you feel confident. I never leave home without statement earrings! I love shell, rattan and floral earrings that I can wear from day to night.

Weekend Hotspot: The Breakers. I love the feeling of being on vacation at home. Relaxing under the umbrellas with the beautiful view of the beach is a weekend favorite.

When: Black Tie

Wear: Roxanne Dress

How: Bows + Florals = Perfect Feminine Style

I'm wearing a beautiful blush strapless dress that has a gorgeous high-low hemline. I styled it with blush bow pumps, white floral earrings and a simple gold clutch.

My Style: Old Florida feminine. I enjoy wearing classic patterns like florals, gingham and stripes in beach-friendly styles like dresses, skirts and jumpsuits. I also love little details – bows and tassels, well-made pieces and modern twists on the classics.

#1 Style Tip: Figure out your favorite color palette and build your staples around it.

Weekend Hotspot: Sant Ambroeus – it's an adorable cafe with indoor and outdoor seating, and casual and fine dining. Everything they make is delicious, and it's a family favorite of ours!
