There's nothing more exciting than dressing for a night out on the town, but make no mistake about it – choosing what to wear can be tricky. Whether it's after work drinks on a Friday night or to let loose on the weekend, it's safe to say that selecting an outfit is an even bigger challenge than deciding on where to go. Are flat shoes are a no-go? Do heels leave you in too much agony and how much skin is really too much? Before you tear up the dance floor, it's essential to select a unique look that's just as functional as it is flattering. So, if you're someone who revels at the thought of getting dressed up or perhaps are not quite sure where to start, fear not! We're here to solve all of your dressing woes with the ultimate guide for what to wear to a nightclub.
A mini dress
When we think of clubbing attire, mini dresses are almost always at the forefront of our minds. And who better to look to than Kendall Jenner for some outfit inspo? The eldest Jenner sister keeps it classy with a gold, shimmery mini dress that attracts attention for all the right reasons.
Good old jeans
High waisted jeans may not be the conventional outfit choice for a girls night out, but if styled the right way, they are the perfect alternative for those who aren’t too keen on sporting a mini dress. Pair with a turtleneck crop top and your preferred footwear of choice, like It-girl Olivia Culpo, for a chic look that’s classy yet still oh so comfortable.
A leather skirt
It's safe to say that a leather skirt is probably one of the most versatile pieces of clothing you’ll ever own. Great for the office or even casual wear, a leather skirt will never go out of style - which is why it’s perfect for clubbing! Pair with a loose fitting tank top and strappy heels, like model and ultimate style muse Rosie Huntington Whiteley, for a simple yet sophisticated look.
There’s no denying that knee high boots elevate your outfits to the higher chic level and can be worn with pretty much anything.
Kendall Jenner proves that a jumpsuit doesn’t have to be boring. The perfect solution to literally any style predicament you might find yourself in, a black jumpsuit is another classic substitute for a dress on a night out.
A great pair of dress pants will take you stylish miles and is perfect for clubbing, as evidenced by Victoria's Secret model Lorena Rae. Rae ups the classy factor by pairing her pants with a plain black top and strappy nude heels.
Emily Ratajkowski never puts a foot wrong in the sartorial department. Her high-waisted tailored shorts are a staple in every woman's wardrobe (if you don't already own a pair we strongly suggest you do yourself a favour and invest in some) and are just as appropriate and stylish as a mini dress for a night out.
