Hailey Bieber has been delivering a masterclass in wedding-guest dressing over the last few days (when in doubt, sequins!), but her downtime Miami uniform has been infused with the same sort of glamour that’s noteworthy in the run-up to party season – two words that wreak havoc in the minds of lo-fi dressers, and conjure sheer delight in those of secret divas.
Bieber, who has recently switched up her stylist and now employs her husband’s dresser Karla Welch full time, has a few cool-girl tips to take when RSVPing yes this winter. Tick off the key trends, but never compromise on your personal style seems to be her mandate.
For a night out in South Florida, Hailey demonstrated her deftness at pulling off the miniskirt trend again, by going matchy-matchy in a lime-green Agr twin set that would have piqued Cher Horowitz’s interest. She dialled down the fluffy brush knit coords with chunky Marni loafers and a Saint Laurent Le 5 à 7 shoulder bag, so the mood was more schoolgirlish than super club.
The color-block micro coords and penny loafer combo is one we have seen from Bieber before. Remember her June Paris trip, when Hailey and her husband gave Europe a taste of Hollywood style? Her all-lavender Raf Simons and The Attico look was, incidentally, one of the first from Welch, who is responsible for Justin’s unique brand of hypebeast streetwear.

Bieber’s other secret weapon besides her searing twinsets – which, by the way, would look equally chic in muted colourways, as demonstrated by Vogue France editor and miniskirt enthusiast Eugénie Trochu – is her stash of Nensi Dojaka’s spliced-and-diced tops and dresses. By now, it’s de rigueur for any It-girl to have posted at least one mirror selfie strung up in the London-based designer’s sheer negligée-style pieces, but Hailey has been layering hers and framing them with her signature baggy jeans for a point of difference.

Of course, party season means nothing to a woman who dresses up for a living, but – whether you’re bracing yourself for a month of cheap fizz or raring to hit the dance floor – it’s worth noting that putting your own spin on the trends always pays off. Nearly naked dress or not.
