It’s Friday night, so you have a slew of text messages from the group chat about the night’s plans. For all intents and purposes, you’re game for whatever the night will bring, but when it comes to getting ready, you can’t help but let out a defeated sigh while staring at that black top you always wear out on the weekend. But don’t just settle for an outfit that doesn’t make you feel like your absolute best self. We’re betting that the fresh looks to come will give you a jolt of inspiration to put together the unique party outfit that’s as fun as the night ahead.
Regular black pants? Not today. Step out in your favorite statement pants—metallic, printed, brightly colored—and add in a fun going-out top.
Fact: Luxurious satin sandals make any LBD look 10 times chicer.
Anyone else easily fall into the trap of wearing all black for nights out? Throw in some seriously vibrant colors through key accessories to freshen it up.
Leather jackets were made for going out, and this vintage dress slash blazer is giving us seriously stylish vibes. Take a cue and wear an oversize jacket as a dress with tights and top it off with a cute headband (yes, headbands just like this are coming back in a major way).
Those who live in cold weather know just how hard it is to create a cool party outfit while wearing your biggest down coat. Take inspiration from this stylish look and opt for patent leather pieces, bold jewelry, and your heavy-duty puffer, of course.
Sock and sandals are our favorite “dorky”-chic styling combo. Try out a fun glitter sock with your go-to heels for a party look that’s truly unique (and trend-forward, no doubt).
Go for the classic sporty-meets-flirty combination of a pretty dress and sneakers. Trust us: It always looks cool.
Get away with wearing your most lived-in denim by styling it with statement pieces that speak all by themselves. Furry kitten heels and an equally furry bag? This look proves the risk is totally worth the payoff.
Yet another cool jean look to save for the weekend. We’re loving the vintage feel of a chain belt with high-waisted denim. Just pair with a pretty top, and voilà.
Another very cool dress-and-sneakers outfit, this time proving you can glam up even a pair of running sneakers with a satin dress and faux-fur coat.
This look is daring yet totally balanced. We love how she tested out these over-the-knee boots with a slightly boxier navy blazer and a neutral base.
When in doubt, go for glitter. Shimmery accessories and footwear add an extra-glam element to any look.
Tone down a sequined number by wearing a sensible blazer over it and belting the whole look.
This easygoing look is perfect for a casual night out with friends but is still the coolest way to go with a beret and trendy fanny pack.
