The Going-Out Wardrobe: 14 Pieces You Need

While we love going out on the town for the night with our friends, getting dressed for the occasion is always, well, a process. Too many times we’ve found ourselves getting ready with an expanding pile of clothes on the floor, and yet we still can’t find anything to wear (been there, done that). We feel your pain, so we put together a going-out capsule wardrobe.

A capsule wardrobe will give you the benefit of pieces to easily put together without requiring too much thinking. Wear an attention-getting going-out top paired with a pair of classic skinny jeans or sport a cute LBD that’s guaranteed to turn heads.

With a wardrobe filled with pieces that are bound to make you look chic, you’ll spend less time worrying about what to wear and more time out with your friends—talk about a win-win situation. Now shop the essential pieces for a night out to create looks you’ll want to wear over and over again.

Going-Out Top

A cool going-out top will put you in the right mood for a night filled with dancing. Wear it with dark jeans or a chic skirt.

Available in sizes S to L.

Take this top to the bars for happy hour.

Skinny Jeans

Skinny jeans will always be a classic option for a night out. We love them in a dark wash that’ll work in any setting.

Black skinny jeans will always look good.

Available in sizes 00 to 24.

Little Black Dress

Truth be told, you can’t go wrong with a little black dress. Wear it on its own or with a belt to take it up a notch.

A black slip skirt will dress up any night.

Available in sizes UK 6 to UK 14.

A pair of metallic heels are perfect for going out.

You’ll want to wear these everywhere you go.
