WHAT TO WEAR: Girl’s Night Out

I am a total sucker for any occasion that permits me to dress exactly how I please — a night without any “over-dressy” or “too fashion forward” boundaries to stop me from putting together my ideal outfit. A girl’s night out is the perfect example of this type of event, and hopefully you have them often because regardless of what you wear or what your plans are, you’re sure to have a blast! This Fashionista knows she’s in for a good night with her girls, but she also knows she has nailed it in a graphic print mini dress, sky-high heels and a statement necklace.

I always say you can’t go wrong with a little black dress, but sometimes you need to spice it up. One way to do this is a graphic print dress like this one. This Fashionista will easily stand out among a sea of solid-colored dresses in her dress printed with a leopard face. The higher neckline of the dress complements its mini length, showing just the right amount of skin to look young and fresh but not inappropriate. I am constantly online shopping for dresses likes this one to wear out when I want to look a bit more fancy, and I am usually successful in finding tons that fit my budget on sites like Tobi and NASTY GAL.

After a long week of hard work and wearing conservative flats to your internship, it’s time to break out your most flashy heels! Whether they’re strappy and black like this Fashionista’s pair or neon platforms, don’t be shy. I have some tall friends who often stray away from heels, but what better night to forget those insecurities and wear the funkiest heels you own than a girl’s night out.

Lastly, pile on the accessories! This metallic clutch is very cohesive with her silver and neon layered necklaces and is also a practical bag for a night out. As Cyndi Lauper once said (and you may just find yourself blaring out at a karaoke bar), “Girls just wanna have fun!” No one said you can’t look great doing it!

One Simple Change: If you think the temperatures may drop as the evening goes on, throw on a blazer or leather jacket. Also, to keep your hands free, try a small shoulder bag instead of the clutch.
