WHAT TO WEAR: Girl's Night Out

Midterms are finally over, and it’s time to let loose and shake that booty with your girls in some sketchy frat house off-campus. But just because you’re going to be showing off your best Soulja Boy in a garage filled with blacklights, that doesn’t mean your outfit is off the hook for the night. You have to shine like no five dollar rainbow disco ball ever could, and this Fashionista is going to show you how.

To start, let’s start with the most classic, unbeatable night-out outfit color: black. What could be more appropriate for nighttime? Also, it is so in style right now to have co-ordinated colors on both top and bottom, just scrolling through Instagram this morning I saw Kylie Jenner in a matching top and skirt duo, and it looked so cute. Keeping a close eye on celebrity’s social media accounts can give you so many style tips without even trying.

To start off this GNO look, choose one hard, structured black piece, such as this Fashionista’s pair of black skinny jeans. They’ll be extremely comfortable and keep you warm on those chilly November nights out, but still give a tough vibe. As I’ve mentioned before, fashion is nothing without juxtaposition, so it is only fitting to pair those tough bottoms with a gauzy lace crop top. Try and pick one that has some cool strap details in addition to the lace! Finish off this look with a pair of simple black leather ankle boots, but little to no jewelry to keep it a bit more casual. And with that, you’re done! Super easy yet formal enough for a night out with your girls.

One Simple Change: Want to re-use your lace top in another way? Take it from girl’s night out to concert ready in one quick step. Trade out your black low rise jeans for a pair of black high-waisted shorts, and you’ll look super cute and be ready to scream “Wildest Dreams” till your heart’s content.
