If you're looking for a place to let loose, have a stay-cation of sorts or just plain pretend vacation, there is no better getaway than Chicago newcomer Three Dots and a Dash. But this is no ordinary night out, ladies. It's time to depart from your typical GNO uniform and live it up a little in an island-inspired look! Whether we call it "island chic" or "tropical attire," it should be nothing short of fun. Besides, I've been told, at Three Dots & A Dash there is nothing serious but the cocktails! (Sounds like the kind of place I'd love to get stranded.)
Channel your inner Tiki mindset by going big and bold with a fun and colorful floral patterned pant. If you want to keep your city-girl edge, pair them with a leather top. Finish off your look with this gorgeous sea nymph necklace that is so very caribbean chic! 'A'ole pilikia!—Suzanne Kopulos
