The evening scene in Vancouver has fashioned dramatically over the years and continues to do so as the city develops. Locals and eager visitors may have witnessed a nightclub change into a coffee shop or a luxe-hotel entering the city with a renowned bar and grand-opening. In order to stay up to date on the matter, we have garnered some of the best cocktail lounge's in Vancouver's nightlife. Our recent photoshoot with Vancouverite Sherry Xue emphasizes a number of modern cocktail looks that are dress-code appropriate, fashion-forward, and in effortless comfort that will surely become a highlight of the night.

 

LOOK 1

Always a classic option, the straight-leg Winton pants in black contrasts with the butterscotch hue Fincher top both designed by Acler. It's asymmetric design adds a chic appearance and is the star of the outfit. With handbags, stay light on these occasions and opt for ones that will fit the bare essentials for the night. You'll want an attire thats easy to venture through the city streets.

 

 

LOOK 2

Finding the perfect balance between 'too much' and 'not enough' can be a strenuous endeavour. Attico's off-shoulder top in black sequin paired with Osman's striped palazzo pants remains eloquent and non-boisterous. Sparkling Alessandra Rich earrings and a vibrant silk scarf creates a contrasting symmetry that works together to attain that perfect evening-out attire.
