When it comes to getting dressed for a night out, the decision-making process can often feel a little overwhelming! With so many bars, venues, casinos, restaurants, and gigs requiring different dress codes and styles, something as simple as putting clothes on suddenly becomes an enormous task.
So, whether you need to make a decision between your LBD and stilettoes or a smart pantsuit with sneakers, these tips should help you to work out how to put your best foot forward. However, depending on the occasion and standard of your taste, the dress mode can be complex and yet be simplified.
It’s all in the destination
Clearly one of the most important factors is working out where you’re actually going. A lot of places carry dress codes, so it’s important to make sure you’re abiding by them if you plan on going somewhere that has one.
After all, you don’t want to be rejected on the door in front of your friends! Find out beforehand which venues you will be heading to and whether they have any strict dress code requirements. And if not! It’s a general code and suddenly, the choice of dress can become so complex.
However, the standard of taste and nature of the outing can easily simplify the dress needed for the occasion. I bet, you can’t wear a simple round neck shirt to a tea simple tea party among the elite. You will be out of place without chasing you out.
Check the weather
This might sound like a super boring thing to remember but if you’re unprepared and it rains, you’ll be regretting it big time! Check to see whether it’s going to be cold so that you can layer up, or if it’s going to be warm so that you can leave chunky coats and jackets at home. More importantly, raining season can be tricky, but been prepared is better than been caught unprepared.
Plan your outfit
Once you have an idea of where you’re going, it’s time to plan your outfit to make sure you have everything ready for the day. This gives you plenty of time to order anything if you’re missing something special or wash and iron the things you do have. It’s also worth having a few go-to outfits ready in your wardrobe for any last-minute plans or as a backup in case your first option doesn’t work out.

For a few drinks with the girls, however, you can afford to be a little more relaxed and wear your favorite maxi dress or jeans. If it’s your first date night in a restaurant, then you can never go wrong with an LBD! Furthermore, looking so beautiful and pretty to eye can be so complex and demanding but don’t forget that the beautiful thing in life is the maturity of simplicity. “look astonishing and keep it simple”.
Don’t forget to accessorize
An outfit is never quite finished until it has the right accessories. Whether your outfit needs a sparkly necklace or a 90s style bum bag (yes they are back in fashion again!), accessories can take an outfit from boring to bedazzled in one easy step. Jazz your outfit up with an armful of bangles or a studded belt to give your look the edge. Moreover, mismatch of the outfit and accessories color can transform an elegant outfit to an out of place merchant. Be guided by the color matching and balancing of accessories, because heavy accessories signify overbearing and overloading.
Be nice to your feet
The type of your footwear can easily expose your standard, but adorning your feet with tasty wears gives joy beyond the smile. If you’re planning on heading to a gig or club to dance the night away, be nice to your feet and try to wear something comfortable. Those super high and super pointy high heels might look lovely but if you can’t walk or dance in them, then they are not going to last the distance on a night out! For those times when you simply must wear heels, opt for low kitten styles or chunky platform wedges which should minimize pain. However, comfortability is a priority.
Take a multi-outfit approach
There are times when you won’t be able to head home before going out, so for these occasions, you need to make your outfits work double time. This will require a lot of pre-planning depending on where you’re going. For instance, if you’re going from work to a date night, try wearing a pair of dark jeans and a shirt for work, then switching to a lacy black top and sparkly earrings before you head out.
