As fashion editors, we regularly experiment with a variety of trends to uncover those key looks that work for our personal styles. As a result, our wardrobes are always evolving—including the “going-out” section in our closets. On that topic, we recently all drummed up a discussion during the holiday party season about the after-hours pieces we rely on to create effortless, fun, and chic party looks. The convo also shed light on some of the night-out pieces we don’t wear as much anymore due to their somewhat outdated nature.
Naturally, we wanted to share our insights with you in case your going-out offering could use a refresh this season. So with all that in mind, keep scrolling to check out the six evening staples we’re not wearing as much at the moment, along with the items we’re opting for instead. Plus, shop each staple as well to perhaps amp up your night-out style. But remember, at the end of the day, you should always wear whatever you feel the most comfortable in—regardless of what’s “in” or “out.”
