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

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.

Go on—match your BFF in similar looks that complement one another. We’re forever in love with the stylish duo behind The Attico and think their velvet wrap dresses are perfect for a girls-only night.

Yes, you can wear sneakers on a night out—this look proves it. Balance out a crop top with an edgy pair of wide-leg pants. Bonus points for a cool, of-the-moment fanny pack.

Go full-tilt retro in a statement-making coat, cat-eye sunnies, and mom jeans. Your friends might call you “extra” for wearing sunglasses out at night, but we stand by our opinion that they’re too good not to wear with a look like this.

If your friends’ idea of a girls’ night out involves something sophisticated like listening to jazz in an oak-lined room, this would be our ideal ensemble—chic and elevated yet totally cool.

Available in sizes XXS to L.

A bit of velvet goes a long way, adding a luxe touch to classic skinny jeans and heels. This season especially, we’re reveling in all the pretty pieces that are made for nights out.

Been wanting to try out ultra-cool vinyl pants but not sure how to pull them off appropriately? We love how cozy fall pieces like a teddy jacket and striped sweater bring the pants into the everyday.

Available in sizes XS to XL.

This winter, our favorite quirky styling trick is adding a pair of fun socks to any outfit with strappy heels. Exhibit A, an otherwise cocktail-ready look becomes a fun and playful outfit perfect for any girls’ night out.

We pretty much love nights like these because they allow us to break out the wild whimsical pieces we don’t often get the chance to flaunt. Play up an animal-print dress with funky boots and an embroidered jacket.
