WHAT TO WEAR: Girl's Night Out

One of the things I love the most about summer is being able to spend more time with friends without worrying about having classes the next day. This means more time to get dressed up and find the perfect outfit! While it can be fun to wear the typical skin tight mini dress, trying to find a look that expresses yourself and your own personal style is way more rewarding.

Whether it’s going to a bar or hitting up the latest club with all your friends, this Fashionista is both classy and edgy, and she shows us how fun it is to dress up for going out. Resembling the iconic Audrey Hepburn as Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany’s, she has chosen a simple little black dress with a scoop neck and a cutout in the back. Her heels add an edge to the look with their pointed toes and studded straps that remind me of Valentino’s wildly popular Rockstud Ankle Strap heels. To finish it off she has added a purple wristlet for a pop of color.

A great part of summer dressing is the versatility of outfits. Many pieces can easily be taken from day to night, work to casual, etc. The art is in choosing the best basic pieces and adding more exciting accessories in order to make the outfit both wearable and stylish at the same time.

One Simple Change: With a classic LBD, it is easy to take an evening look and bring it into the daytime. All you need to do is change shoes. By swapping this Fashionista’s pointed heels for a pair of sandals, this look can be transformed from dressy to casual in an instant. Add some fun bracelets and a cute pair of sunglasses, and you’re ready to take on daily life as well as the night life.
