Girls Night Out Musthaves

GNO When prepping an outfit for a hot summer evening, look no further than these GNO essentials.  Here are party-ready pieces that are tastefully alluring, but also incredibly fashion-forward.

GNO-jumpsuitAsos: Chic Jumpsuit with Open Back ($76) If you’re less of a dress or skirts girl, you’ll appreciate this sleek jumpsuit. Just add a jeweled necklace for a visually intriguing result!

GNO-skortZara: Mini Skort ($50) in Geranium. Skorts are perfect GNO material. Why? They’re dressier than a pair of shorts, but offer more coverage than a tiny mini skirt.

Summer Party ClutchBlessing-Co: Summer Party Clutch ($28) This graphic party scene clutch is just the right size for holding your keys, lipstick, and cell phone for all those numbers you’ll collect.

GNO-jacketSass and Bide: Not the Enemy Embellished Jacket ($590) Add a jacket, like this one to your outfit for extra polish (silver chain embellishments give off a rock ‘n’ roll vibe).

GNO-coatedskinniesPaige: Hoxton Coated High-Res Skinnies ($199) in Black Coated. Skinny jeans are great, but try a coated pair for girls’ night out. They’re flashier, which is just what you need for an after-hours event.

GNO-blouseNasty Gal: Sweet Dot Crop Blouse ($32) Bring out your feminine side with this sheer polka-dot top, downplay its cutesy feel by layering it over a lacy bra.

GNO-strappydressTopshop: Strappy Hem Dress ($84) Your summer tan will pop in this halter body-con dress! Plus, wearing white is your chance to stand out in a sea of black.

Green-Crossbody-bagBlessing-Co: Mini Crossbody Bag ($20) in Mint. If you want to go hands-free (best for holding more than one cocktail 😉 ) this cute cross-body is a sure bet.

Have a fab Girls Night Out!

XOXO
