What to Wear: Ladies Night


what to wear


This week the What to Wear gang and I are showing you what we like to wear on ladies night. My perfect girls night out is to go for some dinner and drinks, and this is the type of outfit I like to wear. I actually wore this to school the other day, but with boots instead of these platforms. I like to be on the sensible side walking through campus :)

One of my favorite color combos is cyan and red, and I’m currently taking a digital color class where we talked about that being a popular color combination since they are complementary colors. Choosing color combos is one of my favorite parts of design, although the translation from screen to print is such an overwhelming world. We took this hue test the first week of class, it’s amazing how much better with color women are than men. Scientifically proven :)

When I first bought this sweater a couple years ago, it was all blue. As pretty as that color is, I couldn’t help but think it needed some red details. I swapped out the buttons, added a collar with vintage red fabric, and sewed on the chartreuse trim.
