Ready Made Outfit: Out on the Town

March 30th, 2005

Ditch your Sevens and obligatory chiffon-y/glittery/flowy and/or drapey tops. It’s time for a new look for casual evenings Out on the Town.

Texture is the key to transforming this outfit from basic to sophisticated.

Basic Formula = Layered Knits + Full Skirt

Try layered tanks in interesting knit textures, such as the gauzy example above ($119) from Kenneth Cole. Add in a skirt in a basic shape (A-line, Full, Straight, etc) in a quirky print or interesting texture. The example below from Lux ($49, Urban Outfitters) features smocking, topstitching, and a visually interesting print.

I encourage you to play around with this look. Do email with your variations!

Coming soon to a blog near you: Men’s Fashion, in the form of another edition of “Adapt this Look.” Stay tuned!
