Night Out Outfits: Summer Edition

Getting dressed for a night out on the town seems to be even more of a challenge in the summertime. There's always a conflict between keeping cool while attempting to avoid pesky bugs and sweat stains (yucky...). A little while back we showed you how to dress for nights out with a cold weather spin, and now we're back for another round of advice re-vamped specifically for the fun summer brings! Whether you're heading out with friends or colleagues, we've got you covered from head to toe.

An Outdoor Concert

Dressing for a concert is all about comfort. You want to have the most fun possible lounging on the lawn with your friends, so your outfit is the last thing you should be fussing over. Silk shorts are light and breezy, not to mention super comfortable. Pairing them with a kimono and a headpiece can instantly complete the look (and you're working two festival trends in one outfit). Fun linen flares are another great option for lightweight coverage and with a crop and a funky bag you are totally concert ready.

A Rooftop Bar

There's nothing better than going out with your friends to a rooftop bar in the city where you feel on top of the world. With a funky casual outfit like one of these, you'll feel so ready to take on the night. The key here is to spice up your night with something super personalized - like, say, a Karl Lagerfeld graphic tee or some shiny shorts. With a piece you love, your confidence will shine through without a doubt.

An Office Party

Summer evening attire can get tricky because of the constant battle to beat the heat. Unfortunately, when going to an office party, breaking out your mini skirt is probably not going to fly. Instead, a great midi or a silk romper will keep you cool while looking appropriately professional and party perfect. Again, don't be afraid to add a personal touch to this look! The work day is over, so have a little fun and show your co-workers your stylish ways. :)
