Do you find that every time it comes to getting ready for a night out you hate every single item of clothing that you own? We’ve all been there – with just hours to go before we need to leave the house for a girls night, we find ourselves throwing each item of clothing we own out of the wardrobe and onto the floor, building an ever-growing pile of unsuitable clothes.
According to a study women spend five months of their working lives picking outfits, with 45% finding deciding what to wear stressful. This equates to almost an hour and a half every week and three days every year, spent just deciding what to wear for work, weekends and nights out.
What you need are some go-to outfits, so that when you find yourself in this situation you know you have something tucked away at the back that will always be suitable. Here are a few that are perfect whether your girls’ night takes you to a restaurant for a fancy dinner, a bar for civilised cocktails or a club for a night of dancing.
Every girl needs at least one LBD! A wardrobe staple that can be worn all year round, you can’t go wrong with a little black dress! It is one of the most iconic items of clothing and has long been a go-to for the fashion conscious girl. Suitable for any occasion, it can be teamed with different shoes and accessories each time to give it a completely different look.
What could be better for a girlie night out than style and comfort all in one? With a jumpsuit you don’t have the added stress of finding both bottoms and a top that you are happy with separately and together, and that don’t clash. This isn’t a problem with the jumpsuit, which you can choose in any colour or pattern you wish, as you don’t need to find another item of clothing to go with it. Sound good? Then click here to find one (or two) to add to the go-to section of your wardrobe!
Whether you opt for black, denim, white or something a bit bolder, skinny jeans are perfect as a go-to outfit, as they can be combined with a t-shirt for a casual look or a blouse for a dressier look. Team them with heels or flats and then jazz it up with a bit of statement jewellery.
When planning the perfect outfit for a night out, accessories and shoes are just as important as the clothes themselves. A black clutch bag and black ankle boots are perfect for any outfit. If you keep your go-to items black, then they will go with anything from a floral print jumpsuit to bright pink skinny jeans.
Finally don’t forget the leather jacket, which will be ideal as a go-to choice on those chillier evenings, when you need a bit of warmth strolling between bars. It is a trendy finish to any outfit while not being too much of an annoyance to have on you while you are dancing the night away!
