This sounds like such a fun party! I love any reason to get dressed up, especially in classic colors like black and white. The key here is to play off signature pieces like the little black dress or little white dress, which has been hugely popular this past year. And you can always go with stripes, which are quite trendy for this spring too. Since it’s a dance party, I’d suggest bringing along a cute pair of flats in case your pumps start to hurt your feet — nothing is worse than letting a pair of painful shoes ruin your night!

I’ve put together some looks and pulled a few more dress options. I hope this helps, and thank you so much for writing in!
