Spend some time in one of the city's many bars, clubs, or date spots, and you'll start to notice something — there's a uniform beloved by the ladies-who-go-out set. We've officially dubbed it "the high and tight" — dresses and skirts that are so short and so, um, constricting that they don't highlight anyone's best features. And this is not a good thing.
Cue the record scratch — let's shake things up a bit, shall we? As you may already know, we're all about celebrating your own personal style around here. So, we're challenging you to think outside the body-con box and the mini frame of mind. To do that, we've whipped up four fabulous going-out looks using the staples you already have in your closet: a pencil skirt, printed pants, a maxi dress, and shorts. Even better? Any body type can rock these looks. Ready to stand out from the pack? Click through to get inspired, then start making some plans — we're going out tonight!
