How to Look Hot: My Eveningwear Must-Haves

There are a few key wardrobe pieces I swear by investing in – a white collared shirt, a soft leather jacket, black heels, and a large faced gold watch to name a few. They form the basis of a chic and stylish wardrobe you can build upon. But one staple item that you might not realize you even need, is a leather skirt. They’re great for spicing up your average work attire, wearing with boots and a sweater on the weekend, and of course, they’re perfect for a night on the town – so versatile.

My insider tip for reinventing a wardrobe classic like the leather skirt? Use the app Snap + Style when you’re getting ready for an upcoming event and really want to knock ’em dead. It’s like having your own personal stylist, making bespoke suggestions, answering style queries and sending you pics of cool clothes that will look amazing on you, and even give you ideas that will revamp pieces that you already own, right from your phone. No-brainer!

Instead of constantly shopping for new looks, I like to find key pieces and update what’s in my wardrobe. I’ve worn this classic leather pencil before with a boyfriend tee and sneakers, but I re-imagined it with a glitzy gold blouse, heels and a choker scarf for a cocktail party this week. The talented stylists over at Snap + Style can really help you nail a fun night-out look like this, with tips on fit and color that work best for your body type and skin tone.

My first stylist tip? Black and gold are always a winning duo for eveningwear – it’s a failsafe, timeless color combo that just screams a fun night out, and looks particularly good with dark nails and sleek hair. Gold can easily go too “Vegas”, so keep your look dark and warm by wearing it with brown eyeliner, bronzer, and limited sequins! Another styling tip: take the waist tie from an old blouse or top and use it as a skinny scarf – this one is from one of my old jumpsuits! And how fun is this ice cream clutch? I love adding a conversation starter like this to my look. If you’re stumped on how to make your wardrobe staples feel new for a work event or birthday party, or if you’re looking for a spring wardrobe makeover, just send a pic over to Snap + Style and let them get to work for you on creating the perfect looks.

  • Looking through old photos today, how was she ever this little? Just a little mouse! 
So to all the mummies out there... how is the jump from 1 to 2 👶? Not quite ready yet, but pondering!
  • I’m freezing. Should’ve worn my thermal vest like Mum said 👕 
But I do love these jeans!
  • London Fashion Week I’ve missed you! 
Ps. This is my mum’s @marksandspencer coat from the ‘80’s, how cool is that 😎
  • Bill and Ben, the flower pot men 🌾
  • The faux-leather skirt of dreams... Such a perfect piece for giving me a bit of power when I need it. Link in bio for why I love the power of the leather skirt and shop my faves #liketkit
  • Between work trips and house moving, I haven’t had a chance to get to a gym. I really enjoyed my training session with @pvolve the other weekend but the best thing about them is that you can stream the exercises from home, which makes working out in my own time so much easier. Swipe up on my stories for the link and use my code LOUISEROE for 15% off. There’s also free international shipping so you can try their equipment anywhere. #pvolvepartner
  • #ad Getting ready for a biiiig red carpet tonight in London, I’ll be chatting to every star of @skytv’s brand new #SkyUpNext shows... watch my takeover live on @SkyTV’s IG, and plan your sofa entertainment for the rest of 2020! Ps. These shows are epic, I got a sneak peek 📺 🧐

  • No time to take a pic today so i filmed a little unpacking update instead! Are you following @louiseroehome yet? Here’s a peak of my new closet... & excuse the greasy hair, I am gross (but v happy!) 😂 📦 📦 📦
  • I don’t love what the long winter has done to my energy levels & skin! Some of the little changes I made since moving from LA, for winter wellbeing: porridge for brekkie, homemade ginger tea, oversized cosy jumpers and @LumityLife supplements. The morning capsules stop me reaching for a second (or third!) coffee, and the night time vitamins have helped me wind down & sleep better. Swipe up on my stories to shop  #Lumity #LumityLife #YourBestAgeIsNow #ad
  • At this point, am I in the #SATC movie?! A fond farewell to @eliesaabworld from the Dubai Desert #leparfumessentiel #eliesaabparfum #backtoessentials #ad
