Enchanted Evening

Timeless and sophisticated, fall’s best after-dark fashions exude a bit of sex appeal.




Halston Heritage gown, $695, and Sondra Roberts clutch, $140, at Bloomingdale's at The Mall at Millenia; Dora Mae necklace, $285, at Sultre in Winter Park; Kelly Cimber cuff, $139, at Tuni in Winter Park; Matthias & Claire necklace, $1,000, and Christophe Danhier ring, $4,500, at Jewels by Peter B in Winter Park.

A special occasion calls for a special look—one that ensures all eyes will be on you when you make your dramatic entrance. This isn’t the time to be shy and retiring. Command the spotlight in that prized one-of-a-kind dress you’ve been waiting to wear, paired with jewelry to be envied. 

The season’s most elegant looks are right at home at the Stetson Mansion, the site of our fall fashion shoot. This historic, late 19th-century home in DeLand is a hallmark of the Gilded Age, a time when elaborate parties were held on the estate. And these stunning fashions are reminiscent of the luxurious style of the era—flattering silhouettes, brilliant colors, rich fabrics, eye-catching details, intriguing hemlines and provocative leg-revealing dresses.

All you need to complete the look is a mane of glamorous soft waves, dark seductive eyes and a dramatic lip, and you’re ready for a memorable night.
