What to Wear For A Girl’s Night Out

Girl's Night Out

 

Do you take the time to go out with your girlfriends?  If so, you know how much fun it can be and of course you want to make sure you wear something “cute!”
What is your favorite place to go with your girlfriends?  Out to dinner, to the movies or have everyone bring an appetizer and hang out at your house?
Most of the time it’s going to be a casual event so you want to look pulled together but not overdone.
Here are some tips, for all you fabulous after 40 gals, to get that perfect look so next time you go out with the “girls” you will look perfectly polished!
  • Start with a fresh pair of dark wash flared jeans.  Skinny jeans are all the rage, but most of us over 40 gals need to balance our our bodies and a flair will do that!
  • Make your top the star of the show.  You want your top to be the focus so go with a shiny fabric that has a nice “v” neck.  Rounded necks tend to look more casual so go for one that will show off your neckline.
  • Don’t tuck in!  Unless you are a “pear shape” with a super flat tummy, most of us over 40 fashionistas will look best if we keep our tops out.  You can add a thin or thick belt if you think it will flatter your figure.  If not, do with out!
  • Don’t over do the accessories.  In the example above we chose a thin belt so just a bangle and earrings are all you need.  No need for a necklace too.
  • Get out a pair of sexy heels and strut your stuff.  Going out with the girls usually means that you won’t have to be walking too much so now is the time to get out those heels!  If you have foot problems then a pair of wedges might not be too painful.  Just remember, the shoes can really make or break an outfit!
  • Switch out your everyday purse for a clutch.  Let this be your excuse to take out one of those cute clutches you probably have tucked away in the back of your closet.  Leave your everyday bag at home.  You don’t need to lug all that stuff around, just grab your cell phone, a tube of lipstick and your wallet and you will be looking updated for sure!
