It’s come to the point in the semester when our plates can’t seem to get any fuller. From schoolwork to job-hunting, sometimes a gal just needs a break to unwind from the constant stress. When you reach this point, a girl’s night out is just what the doctor ordered. Sometimes you have to ditch your dudes and let loose with your gal pals, because after all, who runs the world? Girls.
I spotted this Fashionista making the transition from day to night in preparation for happy hour with the girls. Naturally, I fell in love with her black color scheme, showcasing the perfect ensemble for a girl’s night out. This Fashionista begins her look with a flirty cheetah print blouse under a stylish shag knit cardigan. She couples this with a pair of high-waisted leather leggings and black cut out booties. In addition to her look, this Fashionista’s combination of gold accents ties her booties, bracelet and clutch together perfectly.
A wise individual once stated, “I’ll stop wearing black when they invent a darker color.” For a night out on the town with your lovely ladies, black outfits are a coveted choice, but there is definitely a method to the madness. To accomplish the perfect black ensemble, it is important that you mix and match textures of your outfit. Take this Fashionista’s styling cues and pair different fabrics, like a shag knit sweater with leather leggings. Also, adding a fun print, like this cheetah top, breaks up the black on black appearance with a splash of color.
Whether you’re hitting your favorite happy hour spot, testing out a new local restaurant or venturing to the newest dance club, grab your best girlfriends and edgiest pieces for your next GNO.
One Simple Change: Spending your night out with your man instead of the girls? Swap your booties out for a pair of heels, then trade your sweater for a leather jacket and you’re ready for date night!
