A pared-down look doesn't mean you can't come on strong. Case in point: this dramatic, slit-up-to-there crepe evening gown. High-impact accessories—metallic peep-toe pumps, a resin bauble ring on a square setting, and a gold bracelet of linked triangles—are as modern and as artful as it gets.
Gown, Yigal Azrouël, $1,490. Pumps, Jerome C. Rousseau. Ring, Trina Turk. Bracelet, Paula Mendoza.
