Getting together with girlfriends for a night out is always balls of fun. Plus, it’s an excellent excuse to wear something cute and edgy. Whether you’re having dinner at a hot new restaurant, enjoying cocktails at your favorite local bar, or staying in for appetizers, wine, and a lively BFF gabfest, you want to look and feel party-ready.
How should you dress to look cool but not overdone? Here are some tips for wearing a Ladies’ Night out.
1. Wear Leather Pants
Leather pants or leggings are a great starting point when you want to look casual, classy, and a little rock and roll. I love these sleek, straight-leg black leather jeans with their famous NYDJ figure-shaping cut. And look how this cozy pink sweater with its romantic puff sleeves balances the masculine vibe. Chic mules, feminine pearls (trending right now), and this showstopping bag keep the look upscale and glam.
2. Pop on Anything Leopard
Leopard anything is always exciting, so a pretty leopard blouse like this one will get you in a wild mood! We’ve teamed it up with cropped jeans in a dark wash (always classy) and added a chic suede moto jacket and mod suede booties. Gold geometric earrings and a ladylike chain-link bag finish this pretty party look.
3. Experiment with a New Neckline
Crew necks and button-up tops are great by day, but on a girl’s night out, a more playful neckline is in order. For example, this romantic off-the-shoulder floral blouse (or animal print) makes a bold fashion statement. Oversized, flowy ruffle sleeves also add glamour. Pair this blouse with bootcut jeans to enhance the 70s boho vibe. Sexy mules and a chic over-the-shoulder bag complete this cool Haute Hippie look.
4. Add A Bit of Sparkle
Anything shiny, metallic, or sparkly says, let’s have a party. A little goes a long way. This fall, satin is the way to shine, so why not think about wearing a pair of jeans and a shiny satin blouse?
5. Pile on the Bling
Gals wouldn’t be gals without a bit of bling. Bring out your big necklaces, dangly earrings, bracelets, and cocktail rings, and wear them joyfully with a casual outfit.
6. Try a Wrap Dress
Prefer a dress over pants on a ladies’ night out? A fabulous wrap dress is modern, casual, and party-perfect too. This is the ideal dress if you are coming straight from work. It looks professional by day and exciting by night.
7. Don’t Forget Sexy Heels and a Fab Bag
Forever in flats? Get those high heel shoes you haven’t worn in ages out of the closet and take them on a test drive. A high bootie or sexy shoe is fun for a night out. Same with your bag. No sense lugging around that big daytime tote that carries everything, including the kitchen sink. Polish off your Girl’s night out look with a small evening bag like a sleek clutch or small crossbody with a gold chain strap.
