NYLON's Favorite Creatives Get Dressed For A Dream Night Out

We might not have any plans tonight, but we can still get dressed up like we do.

After months of staying home, our party plans — no matter what they may entail, from all-day BBQs to all-night ragers or simply just laying low with a close group of friends — still remain up in the air. But one thing is clear: We're all craving a big night out, especially with the ones we love most. So, we asked some of our favorite stylish people about what their ideal night would be — once all of *this* is over.

Read on to find out who's dreaming to go out and, most importantly, what they plan on wearing. They dressed up in their best 'fits at home and filled us in on what they're up to now. If you're feeling inspired, we have details on where to shop their looks, too.

We only include products that have been independently selected by NYLON's editorial team. However, we may receive a portion of sales if you purchase a product through a link in this article.

Sydney Carlson, Co-founder & Designer of Wildflower Cases

Where are you quarantining?

I'm currently laying on the floor at my parents' house.

What are you doing for fun while staying home?

I'm constantly experimenting with new makeup looks, taking photos, and learning new skills with my camera and editing.

Tell us about your outfit for your dream night out.

I'm wearing a black mesh jumpsuit from I.AM.GIA, with a little black bikini under, thrifted clear heels, and my Vivienne Westwood bag. I wanted to spice the look up with my makeup and add some color to it. This hairstyle has been my go-to recently. I twist my hair up with a big clip and it's DONE!

And tell us about your dream night out.

My dream night out would be to hop in a party bus with all my besties, a big yummy dinner, and then the chaos (and 1942 shots) begins. My friends and I always know how to have a good time and being around each other can get chaotic... and I love it.

Where are you quarantining?

I’ve been spending this quarantine time in my LA apartment.

What are you doing for fun while staying home?

Cooking new recipes and watching a lot of the Bon Appétit YouTube channel. I’ve also been trying to exercise daily, experiment with new makeup looks, and take a lot of self-timer photos to give myself a reason to put a cute outfit on.

Tell us about your outfit for your dream night out.

My perfect night out would be getting food and drinks, so that’s what I based my outfit around. My top is the silk ruched blouse from Tank Air and I got this vintage velvet mini bag from The Break on Instagram.

And tell us about your dream night out.

Before quarantine started, my boyfriend and I went to the restaurant Night+Market in Silver Lake for the first time and we instantly loved it. It became our Saturday night "tradition" to get dressed up, take outfit photos, Uber to the restaurant, order a bottle of wine, and eat our favorite dishes.

Gabrielle Richardson, Curator for Art Hoe Collective & Model (Muse)

Where are you quarantining?

In Los Angeles, even though I miss NYC so much.

What are you doing for fun while staying home?

I've been painting and making music and working on my writing, as well as planning workshops to help people who are being most affected by the COVID-19 crisis.

Paloma Wool

Tell us about your outfit for your dream night out.

I’m wearing a Paloma Wool dress and By Far heels. All of my jewelry is either inherited pieces from my grandmother or from Popular Jewelry in Chinatown in NYC.

And tell us about your dream night out.

One of the biggest things I miss is going out in New York, which is currently being hit the hardest by the coronavirus. I can't wait to go to the MoMA, go out to eat with my friends in Brooklyn, and dance the night away!

Tei Shi, Musician

Where are you quarantining?

I'm spending quarantine holed up in my house in LA.

What are you doing for fun while staying home?

I've been staying really busy finishing up a bunch of music, including my new song, "Die 4 Ur Love." When I have time, I'm doing yoga outside, taking stretching and choreography classes on YouTube, cooking, and a good amount of dancing on my own.

Tell us about your outfit for your dream night out.

I was supposed to wear this Y/Project look on stage during my tour in March, which got canceled. I've been dying to wear it so I decided this would be my look.

And tell us about your dream night out.

Anywhere that's got a dance floor and is playing anything from salsa to bachata to reggaeton. I'd start it out with a big dinner at this Cuban restaurant I love, drink some tequila-based cocktails, and head to the party. Maybe I'll rent a convertible that we can ride around town in all day before going out, too.
