The power of the group chat is not to be contended. Case in point? After months of barely putting on anything other than sweatpants, I have to admit I was a little out of practice when it came to getting dressed for “normal” events. Instagram and the runways were naturally two sources of date night outfit inspiration, but honestly, it was the collective approval of the group chat that helped guide me through it all. With a little bit of trial and error and some healthy debate over which heels look best with dresses, I got my mojo back. I exchange fancy outfit ideas with my friends so much, it wouldn’t be far-fetched to call me an expert.
But seeing is believing, so I’ve assembled 15 failproof looks that prove my point. Whether you’re team pants or team dress, the below night out looks are guaranteed to impress more than just your date. Keep clicking to see every outfit that garnered the group chat seal of approval.
