With a year of lockdown, the reopening of nightlife has come quite suddenly, and finding the perfect outfit for going out every night is getting trickier. This article will hopefully help solve this dilemma by outlining a simple yet fashionable capsule wardrobe that will save you from spending money on new clothes every week while sustainably adding variation to your outfits.
If you are going somewhere that does not have a strict dress-code, a top and bottom combo is a great go-to as it can be dressed up or down. Depending on what you choose, these combos can be mixed together and can be worn for multiple nights out.
The first pair of bottoms that are great for a night out capsule are flares. These can be found on most online shopping platforms as well as second hand on places such as Depop and Vinted. These are great for a capsule wardrobe because plain flares can be paired with another colour or patterned top and vice versa for patterned flares. Options can be found below:
If flares are not your thing, then jeans are also a good option. Wide leg, mom and flared jeans are the best option since it usually gets quite warm inside on a night out. When pairing with these jeans, it is best to find a stand-out top and often one that accentuates the top area to keep the proportions of the outfit balanced.
Whether it’s more of a special occasion or you want to go for a dressier look, skorts are a great option that will allow you to stay cute and stylish whilst also allowing you to dance!
Finding going out tops when it’s so cold outside and warm inside can be tricky. A light jacket or cardigan can be good to wear there and can easily be carried around or checked in.
Often when pairing with plain bottoms, a different coloured top, or a more stand out top (such as floral, glitter, milkmaid sleeved) turns the outfit from day to night. Fun colour combinations include cream and green, black and red, baby blue and pale pink.
Going out shoes
Another key piece to keep in mind is despite having no idea how this happens inside, your shoes will get extremely dirty. Therefore, it’s best to have a pair that you wear on night outs that can just be cleaned and also go with every outfit. Its best to keep them a plain colour so they can go with every outfit, as well as finding a pair that dresses up a casual outfit to make it suitable for nights out.
Choosing an outfit should be fun and when weekends keep coming around quick, finding an outfit can be stressful. That’s why ensuring your wardrobe is interchangeable ensures variation as well as ease of finding a night out outfit. Thank you for reading!
