One of the most fun things about college and living in a dorm is hanging out with the girls! It is such a fun part of life to be able to run down to your friends’ rooms and spend time with them at any time of day or night. It is also fun to be able to raid each other’s closets and get ready together before going out. All kinds of great outfits are put together that way.
I saw this Fashionista around campus and thought she had a perfect outfit for a girl’s night out. She’s wearing an adorable leather skirt, green sheer blouse and ankle boots. This outfit is perfect for the weather in Nashville right now. It is definitely a transition time from cool to warm, and this outfit considers both. The leather and boots are a nod to the cool temperatures while the sheer top and bare skin are great for the warm days we’ve been having recently. Sheer has been a big trend in both fall and spring runway collections. There are a million different colors, styles and shapes to choose from!
My favorite thing about this outfit is the use of texture. The top, skirt and shoes all have a different texture and sheen which each add something different to the outfit. The sheer fabric of the top is light and feminine, while the leather is tough and edgy. Opposite looks often complement each other nicely. Plus, the textures add so much interest that very few accessories are needed. This Fashionista did a great job of keeping it simple with a single collar necklace.
One Simple Change: While this outfit is perfect for a girl’s night out, it can be great for a career fair or casual interview in just a few simple steps. The skirt is not too short or tight, so it can still work nicely as a unique alternative to the normal pencil skirt. I would simply switch the ankle boots for a great nude pump and add a feminine briefcase to look grown up and professional.
