WHAT TO WEAR: Out With Friends

What to Wear

The weekend is arriving, everyone! And besides sleeping in, one thing I always look forward to is going out with my friends and, of course, picking the right outfit to do so. While those two highly anticipated days aren’t here just yet, living in a college town is like living in a neighborhood where all your friends are your neighbors and you’re always hanging with some of your favorite people. In the case of being out with some friends, I would say to keep it cool but comfortable, and this Fashionista’s playful and edgy look does just that.

She’s sporting a midi dress with a black tank and a tropical print skirt, belted at the waist with a black faux crocodile belt. This Fashionista wore her unique pieces with a worn cream leather backpack and a pair of the perfect edgy combat boots to complement her girly dress. This is where, in my opinion, the styling in this ensemble finishes off right. Instead of getting any old backpack for school, she chose a classic vintage piece in a great color, and rocked one of my favorite looks; feminine and edgy.

To emulate this outfit when you’re going out with friends, take inspiration from her girly silhouette, that awesome print and the mix of styles. The look of her white, tan and black palm tree print is very on-trend and the summer inspiration of her dress is perfect in this sunny August weather. So if you don’t have the dress, try a midi skirt with unique colors and print, with a black tank top tucked in. The grungy shoes are the major twist; so don’t forget to bust out your favorite pair of combat boots and a vintage leather backpack to add to the girly qualities.

One Simple Change: If by chance you need to meet with a professor before getting together with your friends, try throwing on a blazer and some flats for a more business casual look.
