Leave it to Yigal Azrouel's spin-off line, Cut25, to deliver a seriously chic alternative to the little black dress. The subtle camouflage pattern in dark tones of olive and green adds a fabulous texture to this party-worthy mini. We'd style this with a blazer to take the edge off the sparkle. ($410, Intermix)

This sequin carryall by Marc Jacobs manages to seem fairly neutral, thanks to the mushroom-beige color and a hearty dose of textured leather to complement the sparkle. ($995, Net-a-Porter)
