Just because you’re dressing for a night out doesn’t mean you have to completely reinvent your style. If your daily uniform consists of an all-black ensemble or a more feminine vibe, learn how to subtly update that look for evening. For example, Kate Moss is constantly seen in edgy all-black outfits, so a fancy black dress is a perfect night-out option. And Olivia Palermo is the queen of a head-to-toe polished look, so a sleek jumpsuit works well for her. It’s important to stay true to your signature style but experiment with different ways to update or accessorize for a fun night out.

Love your legs? Or maybe you’d rather show off your arms and chest. Whatever you deem your best asset, we suggest learning how to flaunt it. By putting your favorite area of your body tastefully on display, you’ll naturally feel more confident—and as we’ve mentioned before, confidence is key to pulling off any look.

Make sure your look will be appropriate for the night's events beforehand. Double-check your outfit is venue appropriate, test hem lengths by dancing or raising your arms, and perform the good old light test to make sure your outfit isn’t unintentionally see through. If something feels off or uncomfortable, we suggesting doing a quick outfit change and always choosing comfort over anything.

It’s important to keep in mind how long you’ll be standing (or dancing) on your feet when getting dressed for the night. Not to sound repetitive, but comfort wins when it comes to a long night out. Plus, comfortable shoes that work for a range of occasions are a wardrobe must for all women. Think chunky heels, fancy flats, and heels with extra support.

Keep it simple when packing your purse for the evening. Your debit card and ID, makeup for touch-ups, your phone, keys, and a bit of cash should get you through the night.
