WHAT TO WEAR: Girl's Night Out

Picking an outfit for a girl’s night out can be tricky. It typically needs to be something a little more casual than your weekend date outfit, but you still want to display what makes your style unique on the nights when you find yourself surrounded by fellow Fashionistas.

This Fashionista demonstrates the perfect balance of chic and casual for dinner at a trendy spot in Lincoln Center. Her black-on-black combination is sleek and sophisticated, ensuring that her look will not go unnoticed. Her peplum is the perfect fit for a casual girl’s night because it allows her to be comfortable in cotton while the cut and hints of leather still keep the outfit dressier. The black pants also add a unique spin on her outfit because they are a far cry from everyone’s go-to dark wash jeans for an evening out. Finally, because black-on-black can sometimes come off as dark and wintery, she adds the perfect chestnut wedge. The color of the shoe warms up the outfit entirely, and because it is a sandal there is no mistaking her look for cold-weather attire. Her simple cross-body is a great addition to this outfit because it allows her to bring along the essentials without lugging her large daytime purse around. Because the bag is so small, she can be ready for whatever the night may bring while knowing that she wont be weighed down.

One Simple Change: Add chestnut boots and your favorite cardigan and you can transform this outfit from a girl’s night in the sweltering June heat to any casual fall occasion. Just because the weather gets cooler doesn’t mean you have to stop wearing your favorite ensembles. With just a few quick additions this outfit can be toasty in no time!
