Wondering what to wear to a nightclub? I’m so glad you asked instead of throwing on whatever with what have you and heading out! Nightclub clothes fall into a very different set of rules than other dressing norms. Here’s a quick breakdown of what to wear to a nightclub and how to make the most of your wardrobe for the big night:

What to wear to the club.

Nightclub clothes should be more obvious versions of their daytime counterparts. That means brighter colors, lower cuts, shorter hemlines, and bigger details. The simple reason for this is that you’ll be in a place with a lot of sensory inputs and not as much light. Men should look for midline contrast. That means if you’re wearing dark pants, go with a light shirt and vice versa.

Nightclub dresses are often little numbers that you’d never be caught dead in on a Thursday afternoon. The reason for nightclub dresses being so skimpy is what I said earlier: nightclub clothes should be more obvious. You can wear more ruffles, show more leg, and have a back scooped down to there in a nightclub. Just don’t try it at your next family reunion!

What’s in your closet that you can wear out for a night of clubbing? Look first for a base item. It’s probably a bottom or top. Don’t start with the shoes or you’ll end up with a wonky outfit every time. Say you’ve got a skirt or shirt you’re certain works for your nightclub look. Go through your other clothing and see what will work to compliment that piece without competing with it.

Competing pieces of clothing typically are trying to hard to do the same thing: impress! For example, a low-cut top competes with a short skirt and a snug knit shirt competes with close-cut pants. Two much and you look like you’re trying too hard which typically only appeals to the types of clubgoers you might not want to take home, you know?

Accessories are an area most people mess up when figuring out what to wear to a nightclub, mostly because they try to be as obvious in their accessories as they were with their outfit. There’s really no need of that. In fact, you can think of accessories as the close-range articles that others will only notice if they’ve already taken an interest in you and pursue conversation with you. Once one of those comes along it’s nice to have something else, another layer if you will, of your personality that can be easily expressed by what you’re wearing. Do you have a fantastic belt you love or hat that particularly displays your sense of fashion? Wear it but don’t base your outfit on it!

If you’re wearing clothing that makes a statement, balances sexy with stylish, and carries good contrast while balanced with unique accessories you stand to make a wonderful impression with your nightclub clothes and, even better, the attitude you’re rocking it all with!
