5 outfits to wear to an Academy Awards viewing party

Drinks with Oscar at the bar

Your Oscar invitation got lost in the mail and you don't fancy watching at home? Head to the nearest bar that’s hosting a viewing party. Fun fact: Sipping on cocktails exponentially increases the snark factor of armchair fashion critics. Keep your duds casual yet polished with elements of sequins, leather and denim, and ground the look with something risky, like these leopard calf–hair kitten heels. Low rise indigo jegging, $29, joefresh.com.   Calvin Klein sleeveless lace sequin blouse, $40, thebay.com. Lisa black biker leather jacket, $690, mackage.com.  Ice crystal 360 double-side stud earring, $50, bananarepublic.com.  Spotted calf hair kitten heels, $150, anntaylor.com.

Comfy couch viewing pary

If a few bottles of Merlot, a couple good friends and a pimped-out cheese tray sound like your dream Oscars night, host your own viewing party.

Add a wee bit of bling and a ballet slipper and you’ve got yourself a sweet, sophisticated and comfy combo. Half stripe sweater, $30, joefresh.com.  Wilfred ‘Viala’ pant, $110, aritzia.com. Concerto layered necklace, $44, baublebar.com.  Leather ‘Blustery’ ballet flat, $80, ninewest.ca.
