“Oh yes, it’s ladies night and the feeling’s right, oh what a night!” These Kool and the Gang lyrics reflect an idea central to ladies everywhere: sometimes you have to ditch your dudes and let loose with your gal pals. The beauty of college is that you can hang with your main squeezes far beyond the realm of school. Whether you’re hitting up your favorite spot for some ladies night specials, jamming out with your girls at the Justin Timberlake concert or dressing to the nines and scoping out a hot new restaurant in town, college affords you the ability to see your friends any day of the week for any occasion.
This Fashionista showcases the perfect ensemble that’s fit for a girl’s night out. She begins her outfit with a kelly green button-down blouse and adds a black leather jacket. She pairs this with a pair of high-waisted American Apparel black nylon leggings. This Fashionista then dresses up her look with a pair of black booties and a black clutch. The gold accents in her necklace, set of rings and on her clutch provide even more cohesion to outfit and create a nice contrast that stands out nicely with her mostly black garb.
If you would like to emulate this Fashionista’s girl’s night out look, the key is to find a trendy jacket and team this with a great pair of heels. Choose a jacket that is either all leather or that is wool with leather sleeves to dress up your ensemble. Add a pair of heeled booties, lace-up pumps or fashion forward cutout booties to complete your look.
When you’re hanging with your girls you have the freedom to try out the latest runway trends that you’ve been pining over, sans judgment. Mix and match your favorite prints and patterns, break out your studded blazer and add your brightest lipstick to create a look as bold and beautiful as the friends you surround yourself with for a girl’s night out.
One Simple Change: While this look is great for a girl’s night out, swap the leather jacket with a simple black blazer for the perfect casual date night ensemble.
