Need a little sartorial spark before your next girls' night out? Well, there's nothing like a real-life example to rekindle your closet creativity. To prove it, we recruited four local stunners to show us how they prep for an out-on-the-town excursion — and boy, did they deliver.
Whether you're a rock 'n' roll babe or a plucky pattern mixer, there's a look here for you. Ahead, the ultimate cheat sheet to help you whip up four stellar ensembles for GNO.
E E, District of Chic
Blogger E of District of Chic proves that a crop top can be classy by pairing it with a ladylike pleated skirt. Simple yet sexy heels, a knotted necklace, and a striking green cocktail ring are the ideal counterparts to the trendy top.

Ashleigh Ashleigh, The Daileigh
Not only did Ashleigh of The Daileigh score a coveted piece of 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target, but she also styled it in a way that stopped us in our tracks. We love the coordinated hues and bold patterns, and how she tempers the eclectic look with a minimalist clutch and heels. We followed her lead with a printed blouse and a pant that incorporates a shade of pink from the top.

To steal her look, reach for skinny pants in a rich fall hue, like burgundy or emerald, and throw on an ultra-casual muscle tee. Don't forget to add a sleek sandal and some elegant jewelry to perfect the tough-chic aesthetic.
