cool outfits for a party

Cool Outfits For Your 22nd Birthday 

Obviously, not everyone is a glam girl looking to party all night in a dress, or at least not a girly one, so if you need something a little more laid back and cool, I’ve got you. Cool girls don’t have to try too hard (and don’t always want to anyway!) to be the center of attention.

Sometimes it flows to you naturally! But whether you like it or not, all eyes (and phone cameras) are on you, so you better be ready.

So here are some outfits that are ready to be the center of attention, but they don’t ask for it. 

When I think of the cool girls, I think slouchy pants and a bodysuit, or something girly mixed with a little edge. Accessories are everything. Find your middle ground here with some outfit inspirations for you. 

  1. Metallic Pants
  2. Extra Western Boots
  3. Scarf Top With Linens
  4. Lace Bodysuit and Blazer
  5. Green Silk Skirt
  6. Bronze Sparkle Slip

Relaxed and casual, but still with some added flair. That’s what makes up the cool girl uniform. Maybe a dress with sneakers or an unexpected color of jean– whatever it means to you, makes it cool. Again, a cool girl aesthetic doesn’t have to try too hard, so don’t stress too much: a cool outfit will come to you naturally.

Here’s are some more ideas to help get the creativity flowing.

  1. Red Jumpsuit
  2. Split Hem Leather Pants
  3. Silk Scarf 
  4. Floral Trim Corset
  5. Cut Out Dress
  6. Beautiful Silk Slip
  7. Bright Orange Pop
  8. Corset And Leather

Matching sets

Matching Set Outfits For Your 22nd Birthday

Matching sets are so easy and so edgy at the same time. They’re easy because once you find your dream top you don’t have to search high and low for a skirt or bottoms that are a perfect addition: it’s all together so you’re done. For your 22nd birthday, let it be easy, fun, and natural, all while looking so good.

If you’re looking to make the outfit pairing process easy but want something aside from a dress, these sets are for you! Nothing is easier than a matching set when planning for a night out, and it’s just an elevated version of the classic top and skirt pairing.
