Girls Night Out Outfits. Nothing is more fun and relaxing than hanging out with your favorite girls after a stressful day at work. It’s a great opportunity to unwind, destress, and get dressed up! But deciding what to wear can be a hassle and we all know what that feels like.
And because we are here to help at Outfit Trends, we have compiled a list of 20 outfits you can try for your next girl’s night out, along with some tips and ideas to keep in mind as you are preparing. Keep reading to find out what items you should always have in your purse, what Selena Gomez wore on her girl’s night out, and 20 gorgeous looks you will want to go try today!
Tips for Girl’s Night Out
Let’s get started with some simple tips to keep in mind when planning your girl’s night out:
- Plan your outfits in advance. There’s nothing more stressful than trying to throw together a cute outfit when you are in a rush or trying to get out the door on time. Always have 2-3 go-to outfits in your wardrobe that you can turn to when that midday text arrives inviting you to a girl’s night out.
- Carry an Emergency Kit in your purse. An emergency kit looks different for every lady, but what it basically means is having a little kit or collection of items tucked in your purse that would come in handy in a pinch. Be prepared for any incident so that you can enjoy your girl’s night out stress-free! See below for some ideas to pack your kit with.
- Check the weather before heading out. Heading out on a warm evening and being unprepared for a sudden drop in temperature is no fun! Bring along an extra sweater or jacket if the night is going to get cooler.
- Have fun with accessories. There is no easier way to jazz up an outfit than with some great accessories. Play around with some jewelry, a cute belt, scarves, or a statement purse.
- Make sure your makeup is Picture Ready. If you and your friends love taking pictures to commemorate your GNO, then be prepared for it! Not every lady likes to wear makeup (and if you don’t then skip this tip) but for those who do, make sure your makeup is A+. Keep the lighting of your destination in mind (a dark restaurant or an outdoor concert needs a different kind of makeup look than a brightly lit event) and check your makeup in a similarly lit situation before heading out. YouTube tutorials are great for finding the perfect makeup look.
- Wear comfortable shoes if dancing. If you and the girls plan to hit the dance floor then make sure you are wearing shoes to accommodate it! It might mean skipping out on the stiletto heels but your feet will thank you later on.
An emergency kit does not mean a miniature First Aid kit (but if you are the type of gal who likes to be prepared for all eventualities, then by all means). It can just mean a couple of items tucked in a zip-bag or pouch or even a pocket in your purse. Keep it simple and only pack things you know would be helpful to you. Here are some examples of things you might consider tucking into your purse:
- Pads or tampons (Better to be prepared than not! Your girlfriends will thank you as well.)
- Painkillers (Feel a headache coming on? Having some PMS cramps? It pays to have these on hand.)
- Extra cash (This will always come in handy whether you need to flag a taxi or cover a tip.)
- Gum or breath mints (Because nobody wants to be stuck with bad breath!)
- Hand sanitizer or wipes (Always good to have on hand.)
- Safety pins (These are great if a zipper breaks on your dress or skirt!)

↓ 19. What to Wear on a Girl’s Night Out 101
We think this is the quintessential girl’s night out outfit.
Why? Because it’s fun, it’s got red (who doesn’t love a lady in red?), it’s gorgeous, and it’s a great way to show off a little skin while keeping it classy. We love the balance of the skinny jeans on the bottom and the laced up peekaboo camisole on top. Match your lipstick to your top and throw on a thin black belt to tuck your cami behind. Finish the look off with heels and curled hair.
↓ 18. Girly Casual Streetwear Look
Some girls love to show off as much skin as possible on their girl’s night out; others like to keep it a little more low-key. If you are more of a low-key kind of girl, then this might be the look for you. With gorgeous heels and fun, heart-shaped sunglasses, you are still looking feminine and cute but you aren’t sacrificing comfort in this camo-print sweatshirt and dark skinny jeans. Style your hair in beachy waves and accessorize with some pretty rings and earrings (we are partial to hoop earrings for this look).
