Do you struggle with transforming your outfits from day to night? Don’t worry, CF is here to help turn that daily annoyance into a fun challenge. Class to Night Out focuses on one piece per week, and aims to help you take your look from study sessions in the library to dancing the night away.

Faux leather has been all the rage the past few seasons. Everything from jeggings to skirts have gotten a whole lot edgier lately. But would you ever wear a leather-look sweater or sweatshirt? I think these punk rock-inspired pieces are super fun for winter, so I’ll be showing you two ways to style one! Read on for a little wardrobe inspiration.

Create an edgy daytime look by pairing your sweater with your favorite pair of dark wash skinny jeans and a bright red statement bag. Next, grab a pair of studded high-top sneakers (you could DIY these if you’re crafty!). Accessorize with jewelry that’s a little off-the-wall for an artsy ensemble – I love these dangly camera-shaped earrings!

Play with texture with your nighttime look by pairing your sweater with a sequined mini skirt. I love the crazy pattern on this one – it’s so fun, plus you could pair it with pretty much anything! Tone things down with simple accent pieces, like classic black ballet flats and a chic gold envelope clutch. Take it to the next level with fun statement jewelry – try a pair of crazy colorful earrings and cool stackable rings.

    I am guilty of owning too many faux-leather things, so naturally I adore these kind of sweaters too. One of the ways I’d probably style it would be with black leggings, riding boots with silver detail and a small silver statement necklace.
