ORANGE’s Guide to Going Out

After a long week of classes, studying and tests, taking the time to have a stress-free and fun night out is a necessity.

Whether you are going out with a group of friends, getting ready for a date night or celebrating an event, ORANGE has an outfit guide for a night out around Austin.

 

Formal

Take a more playful approach for your next formal look by showing some extra skin in a sophisticated mini. Wearing one with long-sleeves and extra embellishments will help you stand out, especially if you finish the look with a pair of killer heels.

Dinner Downtown

Whether it’s a nice dinner planned downtown at Roaring Forks or La Condesa, take the opportunity to dress up a little. This is the time to use that one dress in your closet you just never had the place to wear. Add a comfortable pair of wedges and an easy to carry statement clutch to finish off your outfit.

Friend’s 21st Birthday

For an excited night filled with fun and laughter, the last thing you want to do is worry if your top or dress needs to be adjusted. Instead, opt for a sheer top with dark jeans and a pair of statement flats or chunky wedges- you’ll look amazing as you focus on a memorable night out with friends.

Apartment Party

Dressing for apartment parties around West Campus can often be tricky. Stand out and stay comfy by pairing a mini-skirt with graphic t-shirt. Whether it’s a t-shirt with your favorite band or just a plain white one, this look can double as a conversation starter. Ditch the heels and finish off the look with easy-to-walk in booties or statement flats.

Music Venue

Austin has no shortage of live music events, so for a night filled with good music, don’t worry about what your outfit looks like. Instead dance, sing and enjoy the night in a flirty dress and chic booties. Accessorize with a fringe purse and leather or jean jacket.

Date Night

First impressions are important, so make an impression that will last in a bold statement dress for your next date night. Whether you end up strolling down Congress or enjoying a movie night at the Alamo Drafthouse, this outfit will certainly be one of the things your date remembers you by. Paired with flats, tennis or wedges, this look can be tailored to any event.

Girls Night Out

Whether you’re on your way to a relaxing night at a coffee bar or heading for karaoke night, a girl’s night out is the time to forget all the stress from the week. Throw on a simple striped or patterned dress and add in a pair of printed sandals to prove that a great outfit doesn’t require a pair of heels.
