The New Rules Of Going-Out Fashion Will Save You $$$

Call it the ultimate catch-22, but between pinching heels, too-tight-to-sit-down-in bandage dresses, and constricting shapewear, the average "going-out outfit" can actually put a major damper on the night. Plus, chances are high that if you throw on your go-to LBD and strappy sandals, a handful of other partygoers will be wearing practically the same thing. Not willing to stand for this, R29 shopping and market director Naomi Nevitt and Jill Wallace, the fashion blogger behind Little Black Boots, teamed up to create an ensemble that not only comfortably takes you from daytime to late-night dancing, but which also gives your OOTN a sleek, dare we say, "grown-up" boost. To pull it all together, the two spent the day driving from one L.A. shopping hot spot to the next, piling the trunk of their Chevy Cruze high with tactical layers, subtle pops of pastel, and an updated take on body-con. The best part? The total head-to-toe look cost — wait for it — less than $150. Hop in the backseat and pay attention; your typical Saturday style is in for a major cool-girl update.
