I realized the other day that I post a lot of blog posts involving outfits for a date night, which means I never really cater to the single twenty-something ladies that read my blog. So I decided to share some outfits I would wear for a girls night out with my friends in the fall. I really had dinner or the bar scene in mind when curating these outfits, as well as the fact that my style is a little bit more grown up than it was 2.5 years ago when I was in college. So if you want to see what I’d wear out for a girls night out at 24 years old, keep on reading!
I really love wearing faux leather and maybe this is a little overboard, but I think it just looks so cool. I got these cropped faux leather pants at Target 2 years ago and they are the most comfortable and surprisingly warm pants I own! I linked a newer pair here. I paired it with a plain white cami from Express. This is the downtown cami that comes in tons of colors and is usually buy one get one 50% off. They are perfect for transitioning from day to night! Last but not least, my faux leather moto jacket (similar linked here) is from Nasty Gal and I basically only wear it if I’m going out to a bar cause it’s not super warm but super stylish. And of course, my shoes my favorites from Louise et Cie via Nordstrom.
I wanted to try something kind of funky with this outfit so I took this lightweight leopard dress from Zara and tucked one side of it into a pair of faux leather paper bag shorts from Zara into it, both from about a year ago. Here are a few similar dresses, linked here and here. Similar shorts are linked here. I paired it with these OTK black suede boots from Goodnight Macaroon and I love the way it turned out! I think it’s a great outfit to experiment with and what’s a better time to experiment with your outfits than for a night out with your girls!
I thought it would be fun to also do a denim on denim look but spruce it up by wearing washed black denim and pairing knee high boots in a fun color. I got the skirt from American Eagle a few years ago (similar linked here) and the jacket is from Forever 21 (similar linked here) and it is genuinely one of my most worn jackets! The bodysuit is SUPER old from American Apparel and the boots are from Zara last year! The color I have is sold out but they come in tons of other colors and are linked here. I love this outfit because it plays with proportion and texture which is my two favorite things to do with my outfits.
For this last outfit, I went with the beautiful chocolate brown bodysuit from Abercrombie because 1) it’s BEAUTIFUL and 2) I wanted to show that you can wear brown and black together. It such a great piece to pair with ripped black jeans because the satin texture makes the brown appear a little richer and more dimensional than if it were a cotton bodysuit that appeared flat. Again, I paired it with my Louise et Cie heels and this super easy look is complete!
