Night's out

#teenvogue // CHANEL bag (stolen of le mother, muaha), ASOS coat, ZARA heels, MISSGUIDED dress (c/o)

Being a teenager, I'll admit my worries in life don't extend quite so far as those of a 40 year old, but one thing that does worry me is dressing for nights out, especially during fall and winter. I've resorted to a fairly standard approach : all black, leather skirt and heels. Albeit, it get's a bit chilly, so when winter finally rears it's head, I always have a big over sized coat to balance out the look. Being a girl, there is definitely a certain stigma around what we ought to wear when we go out and I try to steer clear of skin tight, fake tan, platform footed, face full o' makeup that you see far too often, and which in my view, comes across as somewhat objectifying. You've all probably noticed I'm pretty lazy with my makeup, even when I'm going out so If you're like me in that respect, I'd definitely try to stand out with some interesting nails or accessory. A sartorial ice breaker, if you will. Nothing get's conversation flowing like wearing a chef hat to a club.
I guess my general attitude to dressing for nights out is balance; keep it classy. Whether this is balancing a body con with a big overcoat or lower heels, or adding bright red lipstick to a more androgynous look. On the other hand, I'm a pretty strong advocator for wearing whatever the hell you want as long as you feel good, so maybe ignore me on this one. Your call.
This look is one of 5 styled in collaboration with ASOS and Missguided, take a peek at the full feature here.

  3. Oh man, I wish my ma had a Chanel bag I could nick! I'm terrible at dressing for nights out, I generally just wear whatever I had on in the day time with lipstick and heels if I can be bothered. I think you've got it just right, you look way classier than most girls on a night out! xxx

  7. You know what?
    I really respect your blog and the content you post.
    Usually you can see that bloggers post their "brand" clothing/acc's etc. and don't even match the outfit together. It seems that - if you want to be a successful blogger, buy a MK watch or a Chanel bag. But you are amazing because all your outfits look interesting, stylish and comfortable. That's what I love about your blog. It is not "cheap". It has it's quality.
    Keep up the awesomeness :)

  8. I love the coat - it looks fab on you! Do my eyes decieve me or does the coat have glitter or metallic threading?

    Definitely agree with you there about the clothes that some girls wear. Stay classy! ;) But I have to say, I do love my Topshop platform wedges. Maybe it's because I'm 4 ft 11 1/2 (the .5 is very important) so I need as much height as I can get or the fact that they are super comfy! However I do love your shoes and I really want a similar pair from Topshop or ASOS (which is cheaper).

  10. I always get so cold on nights out too! This coat is perfect. I usually rely on my leather jacket, but that could get a little uniform xo

  12. I love this look, definitely more a classy take on a night out look. I don't know how you go for nights out in winter in the UK, I think I would possibly freeze to death as I have no idea of how to dress warm AND trendy!

  13. I love dressing up for a night out. But I have to disagree with you, I love a nice tight dress and maybe an oversized cardigan or something to really balance everything out. And with a dash of "full face of makeup" lol
