Just the mention of Art Basel can send even the most experienced party-hopper into a panic. A week-long extravaganza celebrating art around town, it's a time to see and be seen so get your wardrobes ready. To help minimise the anxiety, we've come up with 10 show-stopping pieces from jackets to rings that are bold enough for the cameras but versatile enough to rock well after March madness.

McQ by Alexander McQueen dress

We found the perfect day-to-night ensemble and it comes in the from of McQ by Alexander McQueen's satin-panelled ruffle-trimmed maxi dress. The polka-dot pattern makes a statement on camera but the louse silhouette keeps it casual when worn with the architectural sandals that are all the rage this season.

Emilio Pucci skirt

Get artsy with Emilio Pucci's printed midi silk skirt with a pattern made to look like an abstract painting. Pair the frame-worthy skirt with a more subdued top and heels, or throw on a long blazer to tone down the bold colours.

Proenza Schouler Heels

For the all-black lovers out there, Proenza Schouler's fringed woven leather mules are your Art Basel staple. Unlike your regular little black shoe, the latticework and thick heel make for an edgy heel that can be worn with a sleek, monochromatic dress for ultimate cool-girl vibes or to elevate a simple-yet-chic denim look.

Altuzzara jacket

It's a universal truth that statement jackets are an investment, and Altuzzara's Felix crinkled plaid stretch-cotton blazer is no exception—especiallyfor Art Week. The subtle red check makes it a piece that can stand on its own with slacks, or that can be easily played up with some pattern-mixing.

Jerome Dreyfuss bag

Women's handbags have long been seen as works of art and this Jerome Dreyfuss suede-panelled tie-dye nubuck clutch comes close with abstract "JD" letters printed on its soft leather cover. Though beautifully graphic, the black, white and grey palette makes it an easy accessory to pair with any ensemble.

T by Alexander Wang shirt

Perhaps the simplest way to elevate any look for both men and women is to put on a collared shirt. This cropped, cotton-blend poplin shirt from T by Alexander Wang has figure-flattering stripes and ends right around your ribcage, allowing you to wear high-waisted pants (for an edgier take) or a high-waisted max skirt and boots for evening-appropriate attire.
