Inside: 67 ideas for what to wear on a night out clubbing with your friends.

It’s girls night! Or just a night out with the best friends no matter who they are. It’s time to hit the club!

If it’s been a minute since you’ve hit the scene or maybe you’re newly 21 and aren’t sure what is appropriate for bars versus clubs, I’ve collected some of my favorite ideas for what to wear on a night out clubbing for you here.

Sure it’s fun to go out casually and have fun in whatever you’re wearing, but who doesn’t love to get dolled up and paint the town red? The club is the place to do it all: mini dresses, sparkles, your favorite heels, and your perfected new hair style, you’re ready to go.

Let’s get club ready and check out these outfit ideas for what to wear on a night out clubbing— it’s a whole process so get ready to roll.

What Should Girls Wear To The Club?

A good clubbing outfit can be super cute, casual, dressy, classy, et cetera. There’s some clubs that have dress codes, which we will get into later, but as long as you’re within the dress codes, there’s no specific style you “should wear.”

Have you ever gone out with the girls and no one sent the “what are we wearing?” text? As long as you know how dressed up or down your friends are and you match their vibe, there are a thousand different ways you could dress for the club.

The way I think about it, is that there’s only two boundaries: you can be too casual for a club, and you can be too conservative. I’m not saying show all of your skin, but I do tend to air on the side of a little lower neckline top for a club rather than a bar. I’m not typically a let it all show kind of person, but I like to match the vibe of the environment!

Clubs tend to be dressier than bars, being more of a high end social scene. So there are ways to wear casual pieces to a club, but they have to be styled well for the scene.

A piece I always keep in my closet for a night out is a sexy lace bodysuit.

If you’re wondering what to wear for a night out clubbing, it’s easier than you think. It’s fun to get all dressed up and ready for a night out on the town! Keep reading for more tips.

Club Dress Codes

If you’re heading out to a club with a dress code, it can be a little intimidating wondering what the general vibes will be with the whole crowd.

At just about any nightclub, the main categories you should avoid are activewear and loungewear. Even if it’s a more casual club, leggings, biker shorts, workout sets, and the like should never be worn in a club. Flip flops and casual open toe sandals are a general no-go as well.

Club dress codes can range from casual to black-tie, but the latter will likely not be on your itinerary for a random night out.

For casual dress codes you can rock jeans, but I advise to still stay away from athletic-wear.

If they refer to “club” attire for their dress code, they’re generally talking about a more sexy and elevated style. Ditch the jeans, and maybe opt for a staple little black dress or a mini skirt and blouse. Heels are the safest bet for your shoe choices, though you do have options.

Anything dressier than this ranges from smart casual, dressy, cocktail, and formal. Each of these are pretty standard across all events and venues, but always keep a slightly sexy edge to it.

What Kind Of Shoes Do You Wear To A Club

If you’re needing to dress up an outfit that’s already kind of club ready, heels will always be your best bet. You can’t be overdressed in general club attire, in my opinion. Open toe or closed toe are both great options.

Dressy sandals have the potential to work for a club on the more casual end, but if you want to opt in for less intense shoes than heels, boots and booties are a great option. Especially rocking some edgier platform leather boots, you can’t go wrong with using the casual pieces to make the look more edgy!

Tops To Wear Out Clubbing

If you’ve got your staple leather pants, jeans, or trousers perfect for clubbing, here are some of the best top styles to go with them!

Luckily, clubbing outfits are mainly dresses, unless you want to start putting together outfits with a skirt or leather pants. But you can always get away with a mini dress so you don’t have a ton of pairing to do here, mainly styling!

Choosing an iconic dress and heels combo completed with your favorite clutch or mini bag is the best way to make sure you’ve got the best fit in the club tonight. Be practical, but also remember that you’re young and your feet can still recover quickly, so rock the heels while you can.

I love these outfit ideas for a night out and about, and I know you will too as you start trying some on for size. Channel your personality, you don’t want to look like you’re playing dress up in the club, but it’s fun to do something different if you want to! Have fun!
