Between working the nine to five every day and studying for your summer course exams, a night on the town with the girls may be exactly what you need to break out of your summertime slump. Whether you’re catching a chick flick with your best friend or skipping dinner and heading straight for drinks with your roommates, girl’s night out is the perfect excuse to get out of those yoga pants and slip into something a little more chic. As she lets down her hair for the night with the girls, this Fashionista shows how to transform a classic black and white dress to an edgy, flirty look.
As the legendary costume designer Edith Head once wrote in her book The Dress Doctor, “A dress should be tight enough to show you’re a woman and loose enough to prove you’re a lady.” It’s important to remember this classy advice when dressing for a girl’s night out that often calls for you to strut your stuff confidently and perhaps a little flirtatiously. This Fashionista chose a high-low black and white dress. A high-low hem allows you to maintain your classy appearance while still showing some skin and there’s not a more timeless duo than black and white. By incorporating these two elements, this Fashionista created a classic yet flirty look.
A Fashionista/o can never go wrong with the classic touch of black and white. As simple and elegant as the pair is, this timeless combination can be accessorized to create an edgier look. Adding statement jewelry is one way of doing so. By balancing a gold Aztec-esque chunky necklace with several smaller gold bracelets, this Fashionista’s black and white dress goes from elegant to edgy in no time.
Complement edgy jewelry with some flirty sparkle. Maintaining a feminine look can be achieved with accessories such as your clutch, or in this Fashionista’s case, your shoes. This Fashionista chose flat sandals covered in golden gems. These shoes are great for a girl’s night out because not only could you spot this Fashionista from a mile away, they are easy to walk and dance in, which are key elements to having a successful, blister-free girl’s night out.
One Simple Change: Transform this look from a girl’s night out to a fancy date night by adding a clutch and a pair of heels. Remember to stick to your color scheme to maintain a cohesive look, however you can always find an accessorized clutch or a pair of heels with a touch of sparkle to reflect your personality.
