Here, we've styled three outfits—from extreme layering (yes, dresses over pants can be sexy!), to incorporating winter wear in a chic way—that will turn heads at the bar for all the right reasons. Pick and choose your favorite pieces, or go with a head-to-toe look—as long as you're letting loose in style, we're happy. Party on!
Dress Over Pants
Yes, you heard that right — we're giving you permission to don a dress and pants. A black-on-black ensemble is super chic (and slimming!) and the combo is totally unexpected. Add a pop of color with a fun clutch and you're ready to rock.

Coat The Look
It's time to face the fact that winter is on its way, and we can't show up to the bar in our teeny-tiny minis anymore. But, bundling up doesn't have to mean going drab — top your 'fit with a statement coat that highlights your style and transition your inside look outside, too. Trust , you'll thank us when you're warm and cozy in that Saturday night (VIP) line.

Sock Your Tights
Knee-high boots are a reliable go-to when it comes to cold-weather dressing, but why not turn them up a notch for a nigh out? Pair your leather kicks with some cozy (but cute!) over-the-knee socks (kicking your over-worn tights to the curb) and balance out the look with some serious sparkle.
