Before we delve into our selection of nightclub-ready outfits for drinks with the gals, it’s time to provide you with a troubling (but relevant – promise!) glimpse into my psyche:
I always cry on a girls’ night out.
Often, it’s because the six Vodka Cokes that I downed at pres have made me a little over-sentimental with my girlfriends. Sometimes, the DJ has played *my* song, and I can’t help but cry with sheer, unadulterated gratitude.
And occasionally, a super-sweet (read: totally wasted) girl – who, mere moments ago, was a total stranger – has complimented my outfit with such earnest sincerity that, not only does she become my new BFF for the night, but I am also completely overwhelmed with emotions.
If, like me, you’re always looking for that mood-lifting outfit to wear while you weepily tell your best pals you love them, then here are some of my club-ready favourites. From body-hugging LBDs to sleek and sexy tops, they’re just right for dinner, drinks (and maybe a few dancefloor hugs) with your besties – gushy, tears-inducing compliments guaranteed.
This sexy, glittery one-piece combines a plunge neckline with glitzy sequin detailing. This all-in-one stunner pairs beautifully with leather trousers, black stilettos, and your go-to girl squad.
The Little Black Dress – she’s an icon for a reason. This suit-all spotty mini is an all-year essential for nights out, cocktails, and shindigs. It’s the LBD, softened up with playful polka dots and cute ruffles.
Featuring a flattering tie-waist in a cute heart print, this midi skirt is a bona-fide heartbreaker! Couple this wrap-around wonder with your silkiest camisole – and a Long Island Iced Tea.
It’s the fail-safe duo that’s (somehow) more iconic than the G&Ts you’ll be sipping at the bar: jeans and a nice top. Yep, we’re always down for fuss-free, instant glam via this club-ready combo. With its dramatic high neck and suit-all colour, this sleeveless blouse adds a high-impact twist to the versatile classic. Pair with your go-to jeans (or leather trousers if you’re really looking to shake things up) and statement heels.
Looking for high-drama dressing via sparkles and sequins? Meet the LSD (ok, we might have to rethink that one): the Little Sparkly Dress that will add a li’l va-va-voom to your bar-ready wardrobe. Featuring a relaxed fit and cuffed sleeves, we recommend teaming this shimmery head-turner with understated accessories and nude heels.
