So maybe you don’t have a personal stylist pushing your sartorial boundaries, but you’ve likely purchased—or seriously considered purchasing—an ensemble equal parts outrageous and awesome (it might have also involved wine and a late night eBay spree, but we digress).

Secondly, keep your accessories and hair and makeup to a minimum. You want to look daring, not delusional. Using Charlize Theron’s bold Valentino look at Cannes as inspiration, we curated a few pieces sure to give your girls’ night out style one serious upgrade.
