Bottoms Up

Life is better when you have a going out top coming in the mail. For whatever reason; no line feels as long, every Friday night plan sounds better and your excitement for the weekend is perpetually bubbling. It’s no secret that the coveted going out top is almost always the star of the show, but no stars can shine without darkness. No going out top looks that good if you don’t have bottoms to go with it.

There are many routes you can take when it comes to cute bottoms for hitting the town  —and none of them are Edikted leather pants (keep up!). 

One option is just jeans. They’re a tried and true piece that will never go out of style. Because the price of jeans is a little steeper than that of an Amazon corset, you don’t want to buy a surplus of these. A good trio might include one low rise, a mid or high rise, one baggier pair and some make a statement .
