  • Fancy Night Out — Strip off your leggings, heavy sweater, and boots and slip into an amazing black, one shoulder cocktail dress.

Take a look at this Phoebe Couture dress for inspiration — with it’s metallic elastic waist and 3/4 length sleeves, it’s the perfect mix of cute and comfortable!
  • Girls Night — No need to fret if you are single on this holiday! Enjoy your time with your gal pals in something eye-catching no matter what you’re doing.

Look for something like this Paisley Mesh dress , which is super comfortable — plus, the rouched sides make your waist look extra tiny! Who knows, maybe tonight will be the night that you meet your Prince Charming…
  • No idea what he has planned! — If your date is keeping hush hush, make sure you are prepared for anything! The key here is making sure you are comfortable, casual, yet still sexy. Nothing is more perfect than something in the night’s theme colors: pink and red!Check out this Phoebe Couture dress as an example — look for something with a similar jersey top and silk printed floral bottom. Whether you are just staying in or going out for dinner, you will fit right in.
