I didn’t really get into the whole “girls night” thing until about a couple of years ago when I met a fabulous group of girls via blogging, who understood my obsession with all things fashion, were willing to be real with each other on all matters of life, and who genuinely supported each other in both successes and failures. Then, girls’ night out, girls’ brunch, girls’ lunch…and girls’ coffee (especially of the Vietnamese variety) became a must.
Because we all love fashion, it also became a time where we could have fun with our personal style and bounce ideas off each other in a way we probably couldn’t with people who didn’t (and don’t) understand why we mix ‘n’ match patterns, adore color blocking, or think that spikey headbands are the best thing since sliced bread.
So, I couldn’t help but share Who What Wears thoughts on the whole thing, that is, “What should I wear for a girls’ night out?”
Must-Try #1: Cool Suiting
A body-conscious dress is an obvious option–if you’re in Vegas–but why not try an easysuit instead? This slightly masculine duo (think: a carrot-leg trouser with a slightly morefitted blazer) is the perfect backdrop for an unexpected top (maybe a lingerie-inspired corset or a little bandeau top). Either way, it’s a chicer choice.
Must-Try #2: Voluminous Skirts
A GNO is the ideal time to experiment with volume, so if you’d like to play with a full skirt, go for it. And don’t think you have to stick to basic colors; there’s something strangely festive and fun about an unexpected print (oversized florals!) or color (bright aubergine!).
Must-Try #3: Baggy Jeans
Speaking of volume, a night out with your friends is definitely the time to break out your slouchy,baggy jeans that are so awesome but feel impossible to wear. Pair them with a small ladylike blouse (rounded collars and little puffy sleeves feel ironic) and a pointed flat or heel for maximum of-the-moment cool.
Must-Try #4: Harem Pants
No matter if you’re going dancing or planning an elaborate dinner, this is an excellent occasion to embrace harem pants–they’re so effortless and comfy to boot. Wear them with a clean and structured top or tee and throw on super fancy jewels to dress up this otherwise casual silhouette.
