Everyone likes to party and enjoy clubbing their way through the weekend. Be it offloading work-related stress or a special occasion, we don’t really need a reason to go clubbing and enjoy a light-hearted affair with the gang. And when you’re off to the club, you need to dress up.
We all want to look and feel good when partying, especially when the venue is a nightclub. Most clubs have a dress code, which means you simply can’t walk in your pajamas and a pair of crocs. But most people find it quite the trouble to choose the right set of clothes for a clubbing night. So once you’ve stamped on the plan for the night, it’s time to select the perfect attire to go along with it.
We all have different choices and style preferences when it comes to fashion. Some people like to take it cool and casual; others want to make it look classy and formal. Ladies can also turn up the heat with sexy clubbing outfits and accessories while hitting the club.
We’ve compiled a list of the best men’s and women’s dresses to wear at a nightclub and look sharp and tidy for the night ahead.
What to Wear at a Club for Men?
There’s a notion that men are limited when it comes to clothing. This is simply not true.
There are a lot of combinations you can choose from here, and we’re talking mainstream. Take a look into the top 5 men’s clothing options for a clubbing night:
T-Shirts with Denim Jeans
The most classic attire for men, which looks stylish nonetheless, is a plain T-shirt paired with denim jeans and a choice of footwear. You can wear sneakers or boots; both of them look neat and prime for a night at the club.
Polo T-Shirt with Trousers
Next up is another classic combination of a Polo T-shirt and trousers. This ‘golf’ attire has been made popular, delivering a casual yet confident statement. Although some would say that polo tees and trousers are best worn during the day, nobody can refute that they look uber at nightlife venues as well. You can go ahead with sneakers or loafers along with this attire.
Shirt with Denim Jeans
For those who are more comfortable wearing a shirt for such occasions, the classic combo of plaid or checkered shirt, denim jeans, and formal shoes can also work. If you’re uncomfortable with formal shoes (keep in mind that dance floor), you can switch to boots for a dash of machoism.
Plain T-Shirt with a Bomber Jacket
Looking sexy is no crime! That’s what the man in the mirror would feel like with this explosive combination of a plain T-shirt and bomber jacket. Add contrast between these two to take it a notch higher. You can wear classic blue or black denim jeans and go with boots to complete this fantastic look.
Plain Shirt with a Casual Blazer
Redefine class at the club with this dashing formal look. Wear a plain shirt, a casual blazer, and denim jeans or trousers. The legwear you choose depends on your comfort and style preferences or complimenting the rest of your attire. For footwear options, you can wear formal shoes, which will pair nicely with both trousers and denim jeans.
What to Wear at a Club for Women?
Women are literally spoilt for choice when it comes to dressing up for a club party. The sheer number of options at their disposal is impressive. Naturally, staying on top of your slay game can easily get confusing, even with an extended wardrobe.
Whether you’re hitting the club for the first time or are just confused about what to wear for the umpteenth time, take a look at our top women’s style guide for a nightclub:
Bodysuit with Jeans
Think of a black bodysuit with blue denim jeans and a pair of red or yellow heels to make a classic style statement at the club. You can customize the accessories as per your preferences. This outfit allows you to carry a handbag easily, so go forth and spruce up for the night.
Skirt with Heels
For the eves who are all about being comfortable and looking cute at the same time, a skirt set with fashionable heels is the way to go. Skirts are also ideal when you’re planning to shake a leg on the dancefloor, where pants can seem a little too extra. So go bold with that mini dress and heels and make a statement of your own at the club.
Jacket over a Tube Top and Jeans
It can’t get sassier than this. Women have a special thing for tube tops, and for a good reason. They can be the perfect ensemble when you want to turn heads at the club while being at your most comfortable. So emanate those ‘chill’ clubbing vibes with a tube top and denim jackets over jeans. For footwear, you can wear sneakers and add all the more sass to your outfit.
Corset with Matching Miniskirt
Let’s face it; corsets are versatile pieces of fashion to have in your wardrobe that are pitch-perfect for a number of different occasions. For your clubbing night, ditch the denims and go ahead with a matching mini skirt with your corset. This is also the attire that’ll allow you to get rid of those heels and give those shiny knee-length boots a try.
Printed Dress with Sandals
What’s all the fuss with black when you have a whole spectrum to choose from? We are talking about those vibrant printed dresses with a skit thigh along with platform sandals to get you going for the night. There are various accessories options here, so go ahead and adorn yourself with boho jewelry and a clutch to complete this look.
How to Choose a Clubbing Outfit?
Wearing the right style to the club depends on a few factors. They’re as follows:
As mentioned earlier, most clubs have dress codes, and it varies from one establishment to the other. Dress codes can be either casuals, business casuals, and even formalwear.
The Toronto summer is quite breezy, but you don’t want to be caught during the Canadian Winter outside a club waiting for admission while freezing in a short dress.
The season matters. If it’s winter, go for long, warm coats. Many clubs have coat rooms, so you don’t have to carry them all the time. Men can even go for bomber jackets and leather jackets to keep themselves warm and stylish at the same time.
Insulated tights and long-sleeve tops are a good choice for women beneath a long coat.
The summer season also presents its own challenges. You’d want a comfortable and breathable dress if you want it to dance to the beat. On this accord, a short sleeveless dress will work fine. Men can make a cool statement with a T-shirt, jeans, or chinos.
The club’s atmosphere and the crowd they host also influence your sartorial sense. Every club has an ambiance and a crowd type. Most clubs in Toronto host young professionals or college students. There are also clubs for white collared professionals.
For ambiance, you need to match your style to it. Is it a Hip-hop club? Or a jazz club? Maybe you’re heading to a themed club for the night (Latino nights).
You can opt for cool casuals and streetwear for casual clubs with a young crowd. In the other camp, wear semi-formals or formals for the night.
What to Avoid Wearing to a Nightclub?
Athletic or leisure wear
Poor quality or ill-fitting clothes
Stained or worn-out attire
Flip flops or Crocs
Anything else that makes you uncomfortable?
