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.

Hooray for fall fashion! I can't get enough of this year's fall trends, and plaid is definitely one of my favorites (and not just because I love Blair Waldorf).

This week's Class to Night Out post will focus on rocking the plaid trend in a really bold way -- with a pair of cropped pants. Whether your style is schoolgirl chic or '90s throwback (or both) you're sure to get inspired. Read on for the outfits!

For a geek chic daytime look, let the pants be the star of the ensemble by pairing them with a light, cream-colored sweater for those chilly September mornings. Then rock a nerdy yet stylish vibe with a studded collar statement necklace. So cute!

Grab a pair of leopard flats to add daring contrast (or even oxfords if you want to look extra scholarly!) and a studious-looking two-tone satchel. Complete the outfit with a pair of adorable glasses-shaped studs.

Since these pants are so prim and proper, adapting them for nightlife may seem hard, but we've got you covered with this stylish outfit idea. Loosen things up with a gauzy white blouse, then add a little edge with a slim black belt.

Grab a pair of sapphire blue pumps and a woven black clutch to glam up the ensemble. Next, try a cute pair of silver post earrings, and complete the look with a dramatic and ultra-glamorous beaded collar necklace!
