Coming off the heels of the busy Fashion Weeks, I can tell you that I attended my fair share of nighttime affairs. From brand presentations to after parties, it feels like the past few weeks have been the busiest I have ever been! Oftentimes when getting ready for these events, I am filled with anticipation and getting ready has become a ritual of some sort. The act of getting dolled up, coupled with picking the perfect outfit, always gets me excited and ready to socialize. Since this has become my new norm as of recently, I have become somewhat of a connoisseur of nighttime attire. From putting together my own outfits to chit-chatting with some of the most well-known style icons and influencers, I built a repertoire of all the party looks that you need to be aware of now and until the end of the year. If you have quite a few nightly events coming up, you are definitely going to want to tap into these outfits. Here are 5 going out looks for fall and winter.
5 Going Out Looks for Fall and Winter
Bodysuit + Leather Pants
Recently, I identified leather pants as a chic alternative to jeans and I still stand by my statement. The best part of this pant style is how easily it is to dress them up, making them the perfect foundation for any going out looks for fall. I opted for an all black look as an example of how to style them for the nighttime. Given the nature of the fabrication, leather can be a little bulky so pairing with a tight-fitting bodysuit manages to result in a balanced look ideal for late night drinks and more. Fashion girls are obsessed with these 90s inspired leather bottoms from Abercrombie and they often sell out so be sure to grab a pair while you can!
Touch of Metallic
In case you have not heard, New Year’s Eve dressing will be heralded in a lot earlier this year! Of course, this means fully sequined dresses and flashes of gold and silver. This definitely makes for killer going out looks but if you are not typically one to wear a full-fledged light reflective outfit, I got you covered. You can give a subtle nod to the trend with this embellished t-shirt, which also plays into the sultry sheer trend that is also just as coveted. The shimmer and shine is just subtle enough without being too loud. Amp things up a little further with this studded handbag.
Knit Dress + Printed Coat
Obviously, we are all huge fans of cozy sweaters come fall time, so why not adapt this material we all know and love for a little nighttime situation? I am a huge advocate for any knit dress but this one in particular had me gasp (and it is a near perfect dupe for the Khaite Pia Dress). Although it seems basic at first glance, you can see that is has a beautiful sweetheart neckline that accentuates the décolletage so well. If I were to wear this out, I would skip out on adding a necklace to really let the cut of the neckline shine. Instead, a pair of statement drop earrings will really do the trick here.
Corset Top + Jeans
Okay, okay I know all of the aforementioned looks were all black but who’s kidding me? Black is the universal color that never fails to make you feel good! But for those who are not afraid of some color, don’t worry. I have just the going out looks for you. Starting with a punchy bright pink corset top which perfectly dips into the growing Barbiecore trend. This ultra flirty top can easily dress up any pair of jeans and I am loving the asymmetrical top of these ones I found at Nordstrom. Complete the look with a killer pair of platform Mary Janes.
Statement Wrap Dress
The classic wrap dress gets a facelift with these punchy colors. Available in red, royal blue, green and a few other colorways on Revolve, this one-piece is bound to make a statement wherever you go. The wrapped silhouette accentuates the waist and highlights your curves in all of the right places. Whether you have a fall wedding to attend, work event, or just want to add to your growing collection of going out looks, I cannot recommend this dress enough. If you need added warmth, throw on a leather blazer to tie in with the sleek boots.
