Shop 15 Must-Have Pieces For Your Next Girls' Night Out

The question of whether you dress for men (implication: sexy) or women (implication: cool) is admittedly a bit out of the Stone Ages, but the other day the query reared its old-timey head in our office anew. The context was simple: when prepping an outfit for a hot summer evening, do you look for something that reveals a little skin, perhaps, or opt for something more directional?

    Our answer is both! Accordingly, we’ve rounded up 15 party-ready pieces that are tastefully alluring, but also incredibly fashion-forward. Click through our slideshow to shop these GNO essentials—champagne not included!

    Zara

    Mini Skort ($50) in Geranium

     

    Skorts are perfect GNO material. Why? They’re dressier than a pair of shorts, but offer more coverage than a tiny mini skirt.

    Rafe

    Alicia Lucite Box Clutch ($395) in Golden/Black

     

    Rafe’s geometric box clutch is just the right size for holding your keys, lipstick, and cell phone (you’ll need it to collect all those numbers).

    Topshop

    Strappy Hem Dress ($84) in White

     

    Thanks to its halter neckline and asymmetric hem, this is a body-con dress we can totally get behind! Plus, wearing white is your chance to stand out in a sea of black.

    J.Crew

    Let’s Bring Back by Lulu Frost Spark Earrings ($180) in Black

     

    These earrings inject your ensemble with a touch of glamour, but they won’t weigh you down as you’re dancing the night away.

    Tibi

    Mia Heels ($395) in Gold-Multi

     

    The double ankle straps on these metallic heels make them a particularly sultry choice, especially when paired with a leather mini skirt.

    Three Floor

    About A Girl Dress ($234) in Blue

     

    Nothing screams GNO more than this romantic, lacy dress. It’s so intricate that all you need to do is add heels and a clutch—and you’re out the door!

  • 8 of 16

    Thakoon Addition

    PJ Short ($290)

     

    We’ll admit it: we chose these silky shorts for their comfort factor, but you’d be surprised to see how quickly they turn GNO-ready when styled with a lacy blouse and heels.

  • 9 of 16

    Saint Laurent

    Velvet Bow Neck Tie ($306) in Black

     

    Now’s the perfect time to get playful with your accessories. We suggest fastening this bowtie collar over a button-down shirt for an alluring take on the tuxedo look.

  • 10 of 16

    Sass and Bide

    Not the Enemy Embellished Jacket ($590) in Black

     

    Add this jacket to your outfit for extra polish (we love the silver chain embellishments for a rock ‘n’ roll vibe).

  • 11 of 16

    Paige

    Hoxton Coated High-Res Skinny Jeans ($199) in Black Coated

     

    Skinny jeans are great, but try a coated pair for girls’ night out. They’re a little flashier, which is just what you need for an after-hours event.  

  • 12 of 16

    Nasty Gal

    Sweet Dot Crop Blouse ($32) in Ivory/Black

     

    Bring out your feminine side with this sheer polka-dot top, but downplay its cutesy feel by layering it over a lacy bra.

  • 13 of 16

    Maria Black

    Crescent Gold-Plated Ear Cuff ($135)

     

    No one can deny the popularity of the ear cuff trend at the moment. Jump on the bandwagon in this statement-making piece!

  • 14 of 16

    ASOS

    Chic Jumpsuit with Open Back ($76)

     

    If you’re less of a dress or skirts girl, you’ll surely appreciate this sleek jumpsuit. Just add a jeweled necklace for a more visually intriguing result!

  • 15 of 16

    Aquazurra

    Beverly Hill Suede Lace-Up Shoes ($646) in Black

     

    Both guys and girls can agree that no GNO outfit is complete without a sexy, strappy heel. Wear these with cropped trousers and a silky camisole.

    Vince Camuto

    Lexi Crossbody ($158) in Hibiscus

     

    If you prefer to go hands-free (best for holding more than one cocktail), this cute cross-body is your best bet.
