WHAT TO WEAR: Girl's Night Out

So your fashion-forward girl gang has decided it’s time for yet another night spent getting sushi for dinner and dancing on tables together for dessert. The leader of your posse has already alerted the group chat you all should dress “cute, but not fancy” and to “definitely wear heels, but not overkill.”

Florida has been deemed the armpit of the United States, which, let’s be real—it’s a little accurate. This means dresses are every girl’s best friend throughout the summer months. Crisscross necklines are all the rage, and a great way to keep cool. Dark colors will keep from showing sweat, and are always versatile with any of your rad accessories.

In order to keep it dressy, pairing a lightweight dress with the perfect heel is imperative to keep killing it comfortably all throughout your night. Nobody wants to be the girl walking through the streets with heels in her hand, although we’ve all been there once or twice. This particular look was paired with black strappy wedges—a great way to keep your ankles thanking you.

A basic cross-body bag is the answer to all of your inner purse problems. Here, it’s used as the perfect solution to tying in those black heels, yet still not taking away from the main attraction—the outfit. She invested in a Micheal Kors bag to keep the quality high, but if you’re balling on a budget, Forever 21 is the place for you. Check out the similarity!

She’s also added a pair of Ray-ban aviators to keep the sun away during all of those iPhone photo shoots you and your trendy group will have before the sit down dinner. This is a great way to sneak in another accessory without worrying about overkill.

One Simple Change: If you’re looking to dress it down a bit before heading out, add a pair of strappy sandals and a jean jacket. This will take your outfit from night to day in a pinch!
