When it doubt, rely on the no-fuss, high-reward style impact that a matching set provides. A co-ord in a timeless black and white color combo, in particular, is ideal for a glamorous night out with your significant other.Jeremy Moeller/Getty Images
Business in the front, party in the back — business meaning an uncomplicated, high-neck white blouse and the party being its open back, tie design. As for the accompanying bottoms? Well, a flirty miniskirt, of course. Sleek sandals and a leather croc clutch complete the look.Raimonda Kulikauskiene/Getty Images
It’s 5:30 p.m. — you’re about to leave the office when you get a text from a friend inviting you to drinks at a nearby scene-y spot. So here’s what you do: Keep the white tee and blazer you wore to work on but add a luxe silk midi skirt and dressy accessories.Edward Berthelot/Getty Images
For when you want your evening ensemble to be a real show-stopper, try layering a pair of micro-mini shorts underneath a skirt made of an uber-trendy netted fabric. A midriff-flossing cutout top, heeled sandals, and teeny-tiny handbag tie the statement look together.Edward Berthelot/Getty Images
This outfit — roomy leather trousers, a black bandeau top, a crochet button-down left open, and white sneaks — is just the thing for a spontaneous and casual happy hour with your besties.Melodie Jeng/Getty Images Entertainment/Getty Images
Test out the subversive basic trend this summer, starting with a black top that boasts oblong-shaped cutouts. Then pair it with neutral khakis and chunky platform sandals for a subtle sensual effect.Edward Berthelot/Getty Images
Proven to be limitless in its styling potential, a button-down is the sleeper hero piece you’ll want in your summer 2022 going-out wardrobe. Just look to how Emilie Joseph styled her oversized blue blouse with a vibrant, tiered straw mini skirt and electric yellow pumps.Edward Berthelot/Getty Images
Embrace summer 2022’s obsession with any and all things fringe with an asymmetrical midi-to-maxi skirt that boasts the crafty trim. Keep the remaining components of your outfit pared back — a silk bra top, white blazer, and nonchalant slides are all you’ll need.Edward Berthelot/Getty Images
Follow Leonie Hanne’s lead and wear a metallic chainmail top with a peek-a-boo bralette and silk trousers this summer. The end result is sultry, celebratory, and, put simply, pure fun.Edward Berthelot/Getty Images
By the way, yes, you can wear leather in the summer. The key is to opt for pieces that lend themselves to ventilation — a strappy, oblique-crossing midi skirt with a sultry leg slit, for instance. Hanna Lassen/Getty Images
A going-out ensemble doesn’t always mean dressing to the nines. For instance, when your evening plans consist of sipping one or two Aperol Spritzes at a low-key lounge or restaurant, opt for a more casual outfit featuring a slip dress, an oversized blazer, and comfy-cute sneakers.Edward Berthelot/Getty Images
Consider inviting a sheer button-down shirt dress in an alluring psychedelic print into your going-out wardrobe. A hypnotic, trippy pattern exudes an innate party vibe (and swirling stripes or wavy checks perfectly capture a playful and slightly inebriated post-cocktails mood).Edward Berthelot/Getty Images
Tackle the Gen Z-vetted trend of dressed-up workwear trousers this season. To start, choose a pair of wide-leg, front-pleat bottoms, and pair them with a summery knit tank top and color-popping stilettos.Edward Berthelot/Getty Images
