It’s a new year, so try something new and ditch the basic black crop top and denim shorts for your evening out in New Orleans. This city is known for its vibrant culture, and especially its exuberant nightlife, so it is important to dress accordingly. Stand out from the crowd this fall by spicing up your NOLA nighttime look. Below are the must-have trends to follow this semester, whether you’re hitting Bourbon or The Boot.
1. Lace bodysuits
These lace intimates have never before been meant to be worn out in public. It is now 2018, and anything goes. This fall, it is totally acceptable to wear lingerie as outerwear. Lingerie has entered the nightlife scene and is here to stay for the season. This trend may seem a little risqué, but it will certainly make a bold fashion statement. To create this chic look, pair it with high rise denim shorts or jeans.
2. Animal prints
Leopards, snakes, and tigers, oh my! Top designers Victoria Beckham, Tom Ford, Calvin Klein, Diane von Furstenberg, and Zadig & Voltaire have incorporated these patterns into their fall lines. Go wild with these prints to construct a fun nighttime look. Consider animal prints your new neutral.
Belts appeared all throughout the fall 2018 runways and on street style stars at New York fashion week. This accessory easily adds a pop of color, pattern, or texture to a simple dress, pants, or shorts. Stock up on wide variety of belts; you won’t regret it.
4. Decorative denim
Swap out your basic bottoms for eye-catching pieces to wear out. Look for embroidered, printed, embellished, patterned, and colored denim. All you’ll need in order to complete your outfit is any basic crop top or bodysuit that you already own. I will definitely be adding a few of these pairs to my cart!
New Orleans is anything but basic, so you will definitely want to embrace the hip and unique culture and nightlife of this wonderful city we live in through your clothing!
