The fashion forward bride-to-be will probably feel the struggle of wanting to look over the top chic but also make sure the pictures at your engagement party are timeless. Your engagement party is the perfect time to take some sartorial risks. You and your fiancé are the stars of the show for your engagement party and this outfit will have all eyes on you. Since the look doesn't scream bridal, you'll totally be able to wear all these pieces again.

Neutrals have been ruling the runway and a jumpsuit is always daring. The choker neckline and keyhole cutout embodies the 90s inspiration all your favorite models (and street style stars) have been wearing. Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid are constantly spotted sporting choker necklines. The jumpsuit leg is more conservative which evens out the sexier neckline.

A strappy black pump perfectly accentuates the jumpsuit. The shoes are sleek and simple and will compliment the statement neckline. Go with a shoe that has an ankle strap to keep your feet from sliding (nobody wants to deal with post-party blisters after all). A mid-height heel will give you a long leg but be comfortable enough so you'll have no problem celebrating all night long.

Fashion girls everywhere are dying over capes this season. This simple black cape scarf will keep you warm and adds another layer to the jumpsuit. If you're worried the low neckline and backless top might be a bit too much for some of your more conservative guests — or you don't want to show too much skin in front of the future in-laws — a cape covers your back and shoulders without detracting from the chicness of the jumpsuit (it only adds on to the chic factor!).

Keep your jewelry as simple as possible — you don't want anything to take away from your ring do you? But a gold cuff is simple and stylish, the perfect way to top off your outfit.

Accurately titled "Wedding Bells," this clutch is the perfect bag to top off your outfit. The gold glitter adds sparkle to your outfit. And you can even use it again during your wedding — win win!
