Paper puts together a good guest list, and the party to commemorate its annual Beautiful People issue will include not only a crazy crowd but also a performance by-wait for it- Duran Duran. Here are the up-and-coming names you should be wearing to stand out in a sea of bopping, hip-swaying girls.
1. The eighties New Wavers had a way of making stripes look super cool, and you can cop their style with this navy-and-white T-shirt onesie from Opening Ceremony, whose house line consistently wows.
2. With its stretch silk sleeves, this distressed leather blazer from Veda, by the insanely adorable NYC designer Lyndsey Butler, is very cool-girl- and thankfully lacking in the now-overdone hardware department.
3. Wearing white shoes is aggressive-in a good way. The stitched detailing on these Rachel Comey clogs makes the super-high heel seem a little more relaxed, and the sling-back strap makes maneuvering around the party much easier.
4. Why not double down on the white accessories? Reece Hudson is one of the newest players in the investment bag realm, and this ostrich and crocodile piece is the sort of thing you could have (and get compliments on) for the next decade.
