Sponsored Content: Because we’re bored of ball gowns.

There’s always going to be something a bit magic about after-dark dressing. We love the glamour, the sense of occasion and the heightened aesthetic.

We also love how these days, there are a million different ways to get event-ready. Forget a basic ball gown, now we’re looking at suiting, embellished cocktail dresses and column gowns for our evenings out. Think feathered jumpsuits and textured boleros.

Moda Operandi’s evening wear selection has all that and more. Via labels like Brandon Maxwell, Naeem Khan, Yeon and Alexandra Vidal, you’ll find your perfect modern black tie look no matter what your style is.

We’ve already found a couple ourselves…
