Ladies and gents, Fashion's Night Out is tonight. It'll be a night of epic mingling, partying and, of course, shopping. Since we're betting you'll be in and out of fitting rooms, opt for an easy, printed dress and minimal jewelry (in our experience, necklaces tend to tangle and earrings fall out). Also, do yourself a favor and keep your purse light – you'll be hauling shopping bags soon enough! And for the ultimate comfort-meets-mad-style footwear, try a pair of architectural cork wedges.
While that's all good and great, we're guessing you may already have your FNO outfit picked out and ready to go. No problem – the above outfit doubles as a choice ensemble for the Young & Free gallery opening, this Saturday at 941Geary. Featuring 12 down-under street talents, this marks the largest Australian street art exhibit to hit the US. The kitschy elephant print and accessories by foreign, cult-loved designers like Maison Martin Margiela and Acne, will be the perfect mix for this must-see show.
