If you’re going to a nightclub for the first time, it’s tempting to think that your outfit should be similar to what you would wear if attending a house party or bar crawl. But remember: The music will be louder and the crowd will be bigger than at any other venue. Even if your style isn’t very edgy, it’s important to stick with neutral colors like white or black when selecting an outfit—you want people in the club dancing around you, not staring at your shirt because they can see through it.
Another thing to keep in mind is that most clubs have dress codes—and they tend to be strict! Make sure that nothing on your body sticks out (like tennis shoes or flip-flops), and avoid cargo shorts or pants with more than two pockets since these could get caught in dispensers for drinks during dancing sessions. If some people are wearing hats and scarves around their necks as accessories, feel free! Just make sure any accessory looks classy enough not only for a nightclub but also for whatever type of music will be playing there (eg country western).
Always wear a jacket, regardless of the temperature outside.
It’s a club, not a church. You’re going to dance, drink, and maybe even meet someone new. Who cares if you might sweat during the night? That’s what deodorant is for. You’ll also want to wear something that makes you feel confident in yourself—and nothing says confidence like being able to walk into a bar or club with your head held high while everyone else looks like they just rolled out of bed!
Jackets are one of those simple accessories that instantly make an outfit look more put together and stylish than it would otherwise be without them. They add an extra layer of protection against wind, rain and cold; they keep all your other clothes clean; they give off an air of professionalism (if paired with dress pants); and they can even help build up self-confidence because hey—you look great!
Avoid all tennis shoes and flip-flops.
- Avoid all tennis shoes and flip-flops. Tennis shoes are not stylish. They’re also not comfortable to dance in. The worst part is, they’re rarely acceptable at most clubs—and if you wear them anyway, you’ll look like an out-of-touch dweeb who doesn’t know how to dress for the occasion.
- If you’re going to wear sneakers, make sure they’re stylish ones (not old Converse Chuck Taylors).
Wear plain T-shirts and simple, solid-colored polos.
When it comes to t-shirts and polos, keep them simple. No logos or graphics. Plain colours are best: avoid grey, black, white and red as they can look too dark in dimly lit venues. Pink or green would be a better option for your top half if you want to stand out from the crowd.
Pink shirts are also great because their brightness makes you visible in the club’s dark atmosphere. If you opt for a polo shirt instead of a t-shirt then try to avoid stripes and patterns too – although on occasion we may be able to get away with some small plaid checks if we’re wearing them under our suit jacket/blazer sleeve at an event where there are lots of other people wearing suits!
Wear bubble jackets or “prodigy” jackets.
Whether you call it a bubble jacket, “prodigy” jacket or just a puffer jacket, this is an item of clothing that has become ubiquitous in hip-hop culture. The name comes from the way rappers wear their jackets: They puff out their chests and strike what might be called a “cool pose.”
The reason for this is that bubble jackets are often made from nylon and filled with goose down feathers—which means they’re incredibly warm. A rapper might wear one on stage during a concert in order to stay warm when he’s performing outside in wintery conditions (or indoors if someone left open the door).
Accessorize with a hat or scarf, but keep it classy.
Accessorizing with a hat or scarf is a great way to add personality to an outfit. The right accessory can make all the difference in your look, so it’s important not to go overboard. Feel free to wear something fun and flashy, but avoid anything that’s too loud or garish (think rhinestone-encrusted baseball caps). A neutral-colored scarf can be worn in many different ways: wrapped around your neck, tied around your purse strap, or even wrapped around the handle of your house key!
Avoid any cargo shorts or pants with more than two pockets.
- Avoid any cargo shorts or pants with more than two pockets.
- Don’t wear shorts or pants with more than two pockets.
- Do not wear cargo shorts.
- Do not wear pants with more than two pockets!
Dressing for a nightclub is about looking classy and sophisticated, not about making a statement with your outfit.
Dress to impress, not to look cute or hot.
It’s important to remember that when you’re going out to a nightclub, your goal isn’t necessarily to look nice or even pretty. It’s more about dressing in a way that makes you feel confident and happy with yourself—not just trying on every trend available at the time.
You want your outfit to make other people notice how stylish and well put together you are without making them think about how much money it cost for you buy all those clothes!
Black is always a good colour choice.
Black is always a good colour choice. It is versatile, easy to accessorise, and can be dressed up or dressed down. Black is also a slimming colour that is often associated with power, elegance and confidence.
Leave the heels at home.
Clubs are known for being crowded and loud. You may be tempted to wear your highest heels, but this is not the place. Not only will you stand out as someone who doesn’t belong there, but you could also hurt yourself or others by wearing them. Instead of going with something flashy and attention-grabbing, choose an outfit that makes you feel good about yourself and then add some accessories to show off your personality.
For example: Go with a cute pair of flats or sneakers so that if it gets too crowded on the dance floor, you’ll still have comfortable shoes to dance in!
Don’t force your hair into a style that makes it uncomfortable.
You want to look good, but you should never force your hair into something that makes it uncomfortable. You don’t want to be at a club and have your hair fall out of place or make you feel awkward because of the way it feels on your head. You should be able to dance comfortably with whatever hairstyle you choose, so don’t wear anything too tight or loose that could potentially cause discomfort.
Leave your expensive jewelry at home.
- Leave the expensive jewelry at home.
- Wear inexpensive jewelry instead.
- This is to avoid attracting thieves, and it increases your odds of being able to easily remove your necklace or earrings if you start feeling uncomfortable in a place that’s getting too crowded or loud for you.
Layering is still a thing.
- Layering is still a thing.
- You can layer with a jacket, but only if it’s not too hot.
- You can layer with an undershirt.
- You can layer with a vest—a short-sleeved shirt that goes under your coat and looks like it has buttons for suspenders is called a waistcoat in British English, whereas Americans call them vests (and we don’t usually wear these outside of special occasions). A button-down collar shirt also counts as layering because it acts as an undershirt to keep you warm while being visible over your turtleneck or collarless button-up shirt. If you’re wearing an actual undershirt, you might be able to skip this step because the two shirts will essentially be working together as one unit anyway!
If you aren’t concerned about having the best look possible at the club then consider wearing accessories instead of extra layers: scarves are always trendy at night clubs because they’re easy to put on and take off throughout the night; belts are great for cinching in tight crop tops or high waists; hats can make any outfit stand out from all others!
Club attire should be versatile enough to take you from the dance floor to the bar.
Club attire should be versatile enough to take you from the dance floor to the bar. For example, if you’re wearing a bodycon dress or a tight top and skirt combo, then be sure to wear some leggings underneath so your outfit will be comfortable while dancing. You may also want to bring an extra change of shoes that are more comfortable than what you were wearing when walking into a club (it’s not uncommon for people to switch into sneakers or flats).
We recommend that women don’t wear anything too revealing (unless they’re going for that look) because it can distract men from their conversations with other women. Of course this isn’t always true – but if it is true at all times then there’s no harm in being considerate.
Men should dress comfortably as well so they can move freely on the dance floor! In addition, avoid any type of clothing that could potentially get in the way during movement such as jackets which may fall off easily due pressing against others’ bodies during dancing sessions like grinding and twerking!
Don’t be afraid to add a bit of colour and sparkle to your outfit.
Don’t be afraid to add a bit of colour and sparkle to your outfit. It’s easy to get stuck in the monochrome rut when dressing for a night out, but you don’t have to – there are so many ways you can inject some colour into your look without making it look like you’re wearing a costume. Think about accessories that will help make your outfit stand out:
- Shiny accessories, like glitter, sequins or beads
- Bold prints on items like jackets or shirts
- Neon colours (you can never go wrong with neon)
As well as adding brightness and vibrancy with these choices, adding sparkle is also an excellent way of getting people talking about your outfit – which means they’ll remember the good times they had with you instead of what happened after 2AM.
Men, there are plenty of ways for you to dress to impress other club patrons.
How you dress is important in any social setting, but it’s especially important at a club. You want to be stylish while also being comfortable and relaxed. Here are some ideas for how you can do this:
- Wear something that fits your body type, but isn’t too tight. It’s best if it doesn’t hug the curves of your body either—too much skin shows off too much of those curves, which may not be what others want to see that night.
- Wear clothing that fits well on top without being tight around the chest or waist (or both). A shirt with a collar or buttons is always good; it makes sure people know that you’re dressed up for an occasion like going out to the bar or clubbing instead of just wearing whatever clothes were lying around in your closet when they decided “hey let’s go get drinks!”
- Get yourself a nice jacket if possible; ideally one made out of leather or another durable material so it lasts longer than cotton/linen jackets tend to do after repeated wearings over time!
