Cute Outfits to Wear Out for a Night on the Town

by Sara Cantu

Whether it's ladies' night or date night, you'll want to look your absolute best when out for a night on the town. From dresses to pant suits, your outfit should be one in which you look and feel your most fabulous. There are plenty of cool, stylish, and chic outfits to put together, and that's half the fun of going out.

Reach for the Tops

Pairing fashionable tops with pants or a skirt makes for a great, head-turning outfit. Leave a flowing chiffon blouse untucked with a pair of fitted trousers or tuck into a fitted skirt to play with proportion. Silk camisoles in neutral hues are excellent for a more demure appearance while colorful print blouses paired with darker skirts, slacks, or jeans are great for letting loose. Sexier styles like bustiers and halter tops are modern choices that wow when combined with sophisticated blazers or leather jackets.

Pretty in Pants

A well-coordinated pair of pants is an ultra-chic option for a perfect party outfit. The key is choosing options that create balance in your overall look. If going with a more voluminous style on bottom like harem pants or high waist slacks, go slimmer on top with a lingerie-inspired corset or fitted blouse. If opting for boldly colored denim or printed bottoms, choose solid black, white, or other neutral tops. For laid back affairs, put a twist on a casual classic by pairing baggy boyfriend jeans with a sheer white T and high-heeled sandals, or pairing skinny jeans with an embellished top and high-heeled pumps or boots.

Dress to Impress

Whether it's a form-fitting sheath dress, a sexy bandage style or a short, A-line silhouette, dresses offer an easy way to create an incredible look for a night out, without spending the whole night getting ready. Pair a little black dress with high-heels and jewelry to showcase great style and restraint or opt for bold colors like cobalt and gold or bright prints to stand out. Pair your dress with stilettos, pumps, or booties to add stand up to your stand out. If you're a flats girl, have fun pairing both solid and print dresses with silver, gold, sequined, and patent leather flats.

Be Wise - Accessorize!

Accessorize any outfit to show you're ready to party. An embellished clutch or one in a bright leather adds a touch of fun while statement jewelry is a great way to jazz up classic ensembles. For a bold dress or outfit, opt for subtler jewels or bedazzle a sophisticated affair by adding serious bling. Whether you choose a dress or stylish separates for your night out, as long as you feel happy and confident you'll be good to go.
