WHAT TO WEAR: Girls' Night Out

February can be a tough month for fashion. Most stores are coming out with new spring merchandise, but it’s still freezing outside (at least in Philadelphia). Because of this seemingly never-ending season, the dead of winter can often lead to a style rut. We’ve had our best fall and winter outfits on repeat since November, and we’re ready to trade in our heavy sweaters and puffer coats for breezy sundresses and pastel spring color palettes. By February, we’re (or at least I’m) so over the cold weather. Every time we get a warm weather tease for a day, it makes me dream of the spring florals, dresses, and bright colors I’ll be sporting in a few short months.

During Philadelphia’s most recent heat wave (that lasted all but one day),  I spotted this Fashionista on her way to Rittenhouse Square for a girls’ night out. This is the perfect transitional-spring, girls night outfit. I love the print on this Fashionista’s dress; it is a great print for the beginning of spring time. The colors in the dress work really well because they help make it multi-seasonal. The pastel colors of the flowers scream spring, but the olive green background help neutralize it for all seasons. Pair it with tights, tall boots, and a scarf and it can be worn in the winter or style it like this Fashionista did today for spring! Her blush pink peacoat ties the whole outfit together, making it a great transitional outfit from winter to spring.

For a girls’ night out on campus, in the city, or exploring somewhere new, this Fashionista has curated the perfect outfit: a feminine, printed dress, a bold coat, riding boots, and simple accessories.
