WHAT TO WEAR: Out With Friends

What to Wear

The weather in Dallas, Pa is far from regular. We’ve hit April and there are still signs of snow popping up in the forecast. So, it’s hard for Fashionistas to plan ahead when it comes to their wardrobes.

This Fashionista played it safe and kept some winter essentials around for the beginning of spring. For those chilly nights, she’s probably happy she still has a few scarves and boots to choose between. While she probably won’t need a parka, she still needs some layers to stay comfortable.

I’m going to admit that I have a slight obsession with her cropped jacket and think it’s a perfect piece for every season. It’s a jacket with some pep that’s great for all sorts of occasions–brunch, family dinner or just out with the girls. Check out Topshop for similar options.

She kept the rest of her outfit fairly simple, leaving the focus on her statement jacket. Underneath she chose to wear a simple white T-shirt, probably for comfort and so as to not detract from the main part of her look. She also chose dark-wash jeans–a great mix from the usual legging I see every girl sporting. Jeans, which would classify as casual wear, are considered more put together compared to leggings, which most girls wear for every occasion lately. Choose a dark-wash jean for outings with the girls or casual date nights. They instantly make an outfit seem more put together compared to the typical black leggings.

One Simple Change: To take this outfit from casual wear to nighttime ready, ditch the chunky scarf. Then, swap the combat bots for a colored heel, like these magenta ones from Jessica Simpson. Now, you’ll be ready for a date night with that special fellow.
