PARKERSBURG - It's summer. It's hot. It's a great time to hit the bars and clubs.
Whether you're hitting the local hot spots or planning a trip to the beach, you'll want to look your best when the sun goes down.
There are several local stores where you can find a variety of items, with a general price range of $15-$25.
Charlotte Russe, Vanity and Old Navy are just three options for making yourself look fabulous.
For a fun and flirty look go for bright colors. Yellow and blue are great summer colors that can be paired with black pants or, if you're daring, a mini-skirt.
Jazz up the outfit with colorful heels and chunky beaded jewelry.
Add a bright beaded or sequined clutch or wristlet for the complete look.
If you want to go for the sultry and sexy look, you can't go wrong with black. Choose dark colors on top, a dark slate gray, black with a pattern or a deep red.
Pair the top with tight black pants that show off all your assets.
Accesorize with big hoop earings and a sleek, black clutch.
Don't forget those heels! As comfortable or uncomfortable as they may be, heels are sexy. Either stick to black or make the stilettos stand out with silver, gold or red.
Try to remember that whether you are out with the girls or on the prowl, you don't want to be overly revealing.
If your top is revealing, wear pants instead of shorts or a skirt. If you've got the legs and want to wear that mini, aim for a top with a higher neckline.
You don't want to give everybody the whole show in one night.
Don't rule out a dress, either. Depending on the style and color, dresses can be fun, flirty, sexy and sassy.
Dresses, as well as skirts, give you more options to play with and emphasize your shoes.
Get lace-up heels or wear tall boots, though boots might not be practical in the summer heat.
Sale of the week goes to Charlotte Russe for its variety of club clothing.
