Turning 21 comes with a lot of exciting things: more chances to go out with friends, being able to bar hop around downtown and a reason to buy new clothes to wear out. After joining the bar scene, it becomes clear that there are certain staple outfits to wear on a night out and some essential pieces of clothing that will always be needed.
VALLEY has all the essentials you can get for a night out and even some outfit suggestions for the next time you’re trying to figure out what to wear.
Jean jackets are in during every season. They’re perfect to throw over a loose-fitting top or even a bodysuit. Get hot at the bar? No problem, just tie your jean jacket around your waist. If you’re feeling bold, try wearing denim on denim — you’re bound to stand out in the crowd.
Leather jackets are so circa the 90s, but they seem to be making a comeback now. They’re great for the colder weather because they’ll keep you warm while waiting in line. Leather jackets always pull together a darker, all black look, but also look great with solid-colored tops and jeans.
Like leather jackets, flare jeans are making a come back. They’re very versatile and can be paired with any shirt or pair of shoes. When it’s colder outside, it’s definitely best to wear flare jeans with close-toed boots to keep you comfortable and warm all night long.
Black jeans seem to be all the rage for an outfit to wear on a night out. If you want to stand out, try pairing your black jeans with a bright top or bodysuit. Finish off the look with a dark jacket, bright accessories and fun shoes to tie the whole outfit together.
Bodysuits can be worn with any bottom for a night out. When the weather is warmer, pair a bodysuit with any style skirt and a cute pair of heels. When it’s colder outside, bodysuits pair well with jeans, denim and leather jackets and heeled boots. Bodysuits are definitely an essential piece of clothing for any college bar-goer.
