Going on a night out does not necessarily mean going to a club or a dance party; it simply means going outside to have fun, and yes, at night. So, one should always bear in mind that this is the time where you should look different from your normal day look—look different in a classy and dazzling way that people will totally admire you. Here are some tips that you could use to decide what to wear for a night out.
Dress for the Occasion
Again, going on a night out does not necessarily mean going to a club; there can be other places as well that you can go on a night out beside the club. So, it is best that you choose your attire that will perfectly match the occasion or the venue of your night out. For example, if you are going to a business-type of an evening party, then, it is best that you wear something modest, but classy, like neutral colours, such as navy, black, grey, etc.
Mix and Match
You do not always have to buy a new outfit for a night out, and you also do not have to worry about your friends memorizing the ones you wear during night outs. You can always mix and match. With the help of some accessories, you can make your look as if a new one. Cardigans, blazers, and other overcoats can help you have a new look as well, so it best to invest in them. With these, you can simply pair up a top with a bottom with a darker colour and cover it up with a coat. Also, make sure that when you mix and match, the colours do complement each other. Also, consider the texture and lustre of each apparel; you don’t want to go on looking very shiny or looking awkward with a shiny top and a rough bottom at that.
Have a Color Scheme
When choosing an outfit for a night out, it is best that you have a colour scheme—that is, you stick to a specific hue and not simply wear anything that you believe looks good together. When choosing a colour scheme, consider the piece of your outfit that stands out the most or the one that can be noticed almost automatically by other people, then from that, choose your other pieces of the outfit based on that and make sure that they will help balance the one that’s most dominant. For example, the dominant colour is maroon, then, maybe you can use some red, old rose, and black to help you balance the colour. Remember, you are going for a colour scheme that will set you apart from the rest.
Of course, your look with not be complete without accessories. For your accessories though, you must remember that their purpose is to help emphasize a part of your outfit, conceal an unwanted part of the outfit, or balance your look; so, it is best that you do not overfill your look with accessories. For example, if you think your dress’s neckline is a bit revealing, wear a necklace with a pendant to distract other people’s eyes from your neckline to your pendant. Consider the colour, texture, and lustre of your accessories as well and keep them to a controlled level.
