Fashion Math, Going-Out (& Standing Out) Edition

Your "pre-game" strategy doesn't consist of shot glasses from WalDrug and cheap vodka anymore. Your dress doesn't require a stick-on bra. However, this isn't T-shirt time either, folks. You're all about going out for a night of drinking and dancing, but you're not in college — so there's no need to dress like it.
Please, please, please donate those old stretchy tube dresses, too-short "formal shorts" and pointy-toed knee-high boots and opt for an upgraded look that's sophisticated and sexy (and not in a sexy fill-in-the-blank for Halloween kind of way, either).
Ahead, we've laid out the three combinations we rely on to set us apart in a sea of Lycra. (Yes, getting dressed just got a whole lot easier — so go ahead, have another gimlet to celebrate).
