As the years between my actual age and when I was first legally allowed to drink grow further apart, I find it harder to figure out what to wear for a night out. The route of tight skirt plus over-the-top high heels is not only uncomfortable, but also feels dated. Who wants to be that girl in the bandage dress, sucking it in all night? For a party-ready outfit that’s fun without being overly revealing, take a cue from Little Mix’s Leigh-Anne Pinnock and pair a flashy top with slouchy jeans. The boxy, crinkled metallic piece from Topshop has a cool, space-age look that would be perfect in dim bar — and offers enough room to indulge in a beer or three. Wear it with boyfriend-style denim to keep the vibe casual, and finish it off with strappy, minimal sandals for a feminine but relaxed look.
