WHAT TO WEAR: Girl's Night Out

Dressing up is fun, but having a reason to dress up is even better. Nothing compares to treating yourself to a girl’s night out. On a campus where comfort and functionality trump trends and fashion, some still find a way to have the best of both worlds by creating a cute look for any occasion. If there is one thing I have learned with my time in college thus far, it’s that there is very little downtime. Looking like a true Fashionista/o does not mean that you have to sacrifice your looks while trying to be worry-free about your outfit on the go.

I think this is one of the most important aspects of fashion—building a wardrobe based on pieces that you can wear again and again without fidgeting throughout the day. When you wear something that is comfortable and stylish, like this adorable tunic, it makes it easier to feel confident and enjoy the moment that you are in rather than wishing you could change out of those stilettos you chose to wear. It’s important to be practical when spending a night out. Grab a nice pair of booties, a stylish dress/romper, your girlfriends and you’re good to go!

This Fashionista pulls her ensemble together by adding a black fedora and her staple jewelry pieces. Small accessories are absolute wardrobe staples, as they can go with just about everything. Items like this are fun to play with when you’re looking to spice up your outfit for the day while also working to establish a signature look for your wardrobe.

One Simple Change: Rock this look in and out of the classroom by throwing on a pair of slip-on sneakers and trading in the vampy lips for something a little more subtle. An outfit like this will always make you look feminine, stylish and put together.
