We Found What to Wear for Your Next Girls' Night Out

by Anna LaPlaca

By the time Friday night rolls around, you’ve likely got an inbox full of text messages from your friend group about the night’s plans and need something amazing to wear. Whether your night involves dinner and drinks or dancing until the wee hours (or both), now’s the time to pull out all the stops and show up in something completely “extra.” Because let’s be honest, your friends are probably expecting as much. So don’t hold back on the sequins, velvet, or faux fur. A girls’ night out was made for piling on the fun and playful details that make your outfit stand out from the crowd. For maximum impact, we recommend mixing and matching your most glam pieces.

Need something fun and flirty for a night out with all your best girlfriends? See which looks have us seriously craving the weekend (and, of course, shop each piece).



Reach for all those rich, holiday-inspired pieces that feel so special, like a faux-fur coat, satin pants, and a perfectly whimsical sequin bag. With the addition of classic and clean sneakers, this is a look that’s fun yet casual.

Violeta by Mango Appliqué Faux-Fur Coat ( $200 ) ($99)
