What to Wear Next: Fall’s 10 Night Out Must-Haves

Dressing for a night out generally means dressing to impress. Whether it’s to impress your date, your family, your colleagues, or your girlfriends (really, don’t we often dress for other women?), it’s a time to have some fun with fashion. And that’s certainly easy to do this season. From rich Fall color and romantic patterns to whimsical mod-inspirations and boho glam, feminine appeal is on full display. We touch on some of Fall’s best trends in this week’s “ Clothes & Conversation” , and our list of essentials here ensures you’ve got some key updates at the ready to enjoy a night out in confident style.
Let us know what you think in the comments below. Check back tomorrow (Thursday) for the 10 key pieces to update your casual style for Fall. Whatever the occasion, we’ve got you covered.

1. Pop of Pattern. Oh, this Tahari dress is simply beautiful – and the price makes it truly amazing. The moody black branch pattern is just posh against the rich merlot red of the ground color (and makes it easy to wear black stockings and heels). This dress is ideal for anything from a cocktail party to wedding. The scuba fabric is stretchy and dense, providing structure to keep things smooth in its simple sheath style. And the elbow length sleeve is cold weather perfection. Not only does it cover up the upper arm (for those of us who prefer to keep our jiggle a secret), it’s a nice alternative to the ever popular sleeveless styles, playing into the season and still feeling dressy. The modern fit goes up to size 16, and the pattern’s placement creates a really slimming shape for every size.

2. The Inspired Top. Keyhole necklines and wrap styles are all the rage this season, which delights us because they are great ways to show a little skin while still looking demure for a night out. This chiffon blouse has a contemporary fit but the drapey crossover panel makes it an easy and flattering fit on everyone. The olive green is just right this Fall, and the black banded color and shoulder panel make it an easy match to your favorite black jeans, leather leggings, or skinny pants for a night out. The hem has an elastic trim in the front, but an open shirttail in the back, so you don’t need to do anything to style it. It will look neat in the front and still cover you from behind – you can also tuck the back in if you prefer.

3. The New Shape of Skirts. Ann Taylor delivers with some seriously modern style in this suede midi skirt. We are obsessed with everything about it. Ann Taylor’s modern fit ensures it won’t be too tight, and there is a size for everyone – 00 to 18, Petite and Tall. The suede is simply yummy, so we warn you, if you wear this on a date night, you may get touched. The caramel shade of brown is perfect for the season. You can wear it with a simple black top, tights, and boots. Or play into the color. Wear it with a neutral like ivory, grey or navy and pair it with beautiful cognac brown boots or shoes. It also looks amazing with deep burgundy, purple or green. You can even play with some animal print. The simple silhouette works with everything from a top tucked in to a banded sweater or little jacket and looks lovely hitting anywhere from your knee to mid-calf, so it can meet the top of your boots.

4. The Fresh Look of Sweaters. Blanket style knits are cozy and delicious this season, and we’ll be talking about them more next week. This version from Anthropologie is one of our favorite ways to interpret it for a stylish night out because the pattern shows off the trend, but it’s not over-sized and bulky, which would give it a more casual feel – and could get hot in a restaurant or by a cozy fire. This combination of super dark navy and brown works with dark denim jeans, and can be worn with black too, especially when you layer a simple black long sleeve tee or turtleneck underneath. The waist tie creates shape and can even be replaced by a wide leather belt in brown or black to further accentuate you waist and elevate the look of the sweater. It comes in Petite too, so it won’t be too long for anyone. Wear it with skinny styles or add a flare leg for a truly current look.

5. Denim Reinterpreted. There is no denying the importance of flare jeans this season, and we don’t want to- especially for a night out. They elevate your jeans, especially in a rich black to create the perfect hybrid between the dressier feel of pants and the edgier feel of jeans. These Joe’s Jeans are one of our favorites. The fabric is super soft (the trick is the mix of rayon with the cotton) that holds color really well, so the black won’t fade. They have stretch for comfort and smooth lines, too. Joe’s is always a great “everywoman” fit – contemporary, but not too skinny. The higher rise sits just around your belly button (depending if your torso is long or short), combining with the fabric to ensure everything stays in place (or gets pushed in to the right place). Instead of your dark skinnies or black trousers, wear these with your favorite blouses and sweaters for a night out with your sexy heels or updated wedges.

6. The Shoe Update. High boots, including over-the-knee styles are as important as ever. Kate spade new york’s interpretation is simply amazing. It comes in black suede (shown) and a gorgeous mushroom brown (also through the ‘shop it’ button). Of course, it’s the heel that makes this one such a winner. Heels tend to be super high - more for viewing than walking – or casual and chunky or flat. This tapered heel is easy to walk in and dresses up with ease. These boots have a stretch inset up the back so they work if you have a stronger calf and also aren’t baggy if you have a slim one. Practically speaking the stretch makes them easy to pull on over your skinny jeans, pants, and tights. The rich suede is really pretty with coated jeans and leather leggings, too, providing the right contrast to the shinier fabrics. And they are a great height with dresses and skirts of any length, including the newer midi’s that hit mid-calf. If you are ready to try the over-the-knee trend, these Dolce Vita’s have a casual vibe and great heel for walking, so they don’t feel vampy.

7. Fall’s Color. Suede, as you can see from this Top 10 list, is prominent and really highlights the gorgeous colors of the season. This Rebecca Minkoff bag has us drooling. The dusty aubergine purple is simply too beautiful to ignore, and the ladylike top handle silhouette gives it wonderfully feminine structure and polish. It will pop any neutral outfit, and will look elegant with your black or camel winter coat. The size will hold everything, so you won’t need to change your bag in the morning as you head out for errands or to the office. It also comes with a longer strap that can be worn on your shoulder or cross body, giving this bag endless versatility. (Tip: We always recommend spraying suede protector on your suede and nubuck products for weather protection. It won’t effect the color, and will prevent stains.)

8. The Ladylike Bag Renewal. We have a little obsession going on over this bag. With the look of a gorgeous vintage coin purse, this bag holds all of your essentials and then some, with the same ladylike feel. It’s the size that gives it that special quality – the kiss-lock detail and framed shape are dressy, while the black leather, optional shoulder strap, and larger than a clutch size make it more versatile, so you can wear it more casually, too.

9. It’s All in the Details. Pearls are a classic that are also a fashion statement this season, especially in the modern way kate spade new york has interpreted them. Click through the ‘shop it’ button to see the alternate view of these earrings on the model. The drop pearl hangs from behind the ear, making these pearls chic and hip. Sure, you can wear them dressed up with a dress for a wedding or charity function, but these are awesome for any night out, with a pretty blouse or sweater and a great pair of jeans. The balance of vintage and fashion forward are just right, and since they’re costume, the price is ideal to play with some style.

10. Fringe, Fur, Feathers & Jewels. Sherpa-like fur generally has a really casual vibe…think of your UGG boots. Blank Denim turns that notion on its ear with this stylish jacket – taking a dressy silhouette and doing it in an unexpected, cozy fabric. In Regular and Petite, the high hip length, bracelet length sleeves, and sleek contemporary fit ensure the furry texture doesn’t overwhelm or create excess bulk. The rope details break up the fur really nicely too, for some style and balance. It’s a fun finishing touch to add to your jeans or black pants when you are heading out to dinner. The length and rounded collar look great with dresses, too. It closes with hook-and-eye, so there is nothing to distract they eye.
