Party Look Mixup

Hey ladies,

As you know university is first and foremost a place of learning, and secondly a place for partying. With a steady stream of parties on the roster, constantly keeping your look fresh can be a challenge unless you’ve got a huge budget or are a chronic online shopper!

 So in tribute to all those long nights of social therapy which are much-needed to balance out the long days of reading, writing and studying, I thought I would do a party outfit post to show you how I mix things up where my party closet is concerned! 

  Having a few staple skirts is key to success in the nightlife fashion department. Choices are infinite, like the staple little black skirt, wrap skirt, stretch skirt, a-line skirt, or a variety of other fabrics like faux leather, faux suede (Aritzia has great vegan leather), stretch denim (yes, it’s making a comeback as seen on the runways and worn by celebs), stretch knits or whatever else you like!

Next, having a ton of cute tops is key! Bralettes, bustiers, tanks, bodysuits, camis…the list goes on. You can never have too many!

With a few staple skirts and an array of tops it’s easy to mix things up regularly. The combinations are pretty much endless! When you fall in love with a top, add it to your repertoire. Add a new skirt now and then!

Then simply mix and match it up, making sure to pair textures and colours that compliment each other. Never pair a top and bottom that each have a lot going on together. Instead a simple lace top goes well with a leather skirt or a bralette works well with a high-waisted stretch knit skirt. 

Be sure to have a few stylish yet comfy pairs of shoes as well! A pair of booties, heels and strappy sandals are a great trio to mix and match according to outfit and weather. Nude or black goes with pretty much everything so those are great choices. Finish the look with a cute bomber or leather jacket and your look is complete!

Here are some mix and match ideas to keep your party wardrobe fresh and the envy of all your girlfriends! Have fun, be safe and I hope this post helps take your party wardrobe one step closer to nearly perfect.   

 XoXo, Ana.
