6 outgoing items that really feel dated and what we put on as an alternative


As fashion editors, we regularly experiment with a variety of trends to determine the most important looks that suit our personal style. As a result, our wardrobes are constantly evolving – including the "going out" section in our closets. On this topic, we all recently had a discussion during the Christmas party about the after-hours pieces we rely on to create effortless, fun, and chic party looks. The convo also sheds light on some of the night-out items that we don't wear as often at home due to the pandemic and our new lifestyle.

Of course, we wanted to share our findings with you in case your socially distant night-out (or date-night-in) offerings could use a refresh. With that in mind, keep scrolling to see the six evening staples we don't wear that often right now, as well as the items we opt for instead. Plus, shop every staple to upgrade your night-out style (once that's the thing again). But remember: at the end of the day, you should always wear what you feel most comfortable in – regardless of what is "in" or "out".
