Fashion Faux Pas to Avoid While Dressing Up For Partying

Who doesn’t like to attend a good party? There is music, dancing, drinks and lots of lovely women. It is the perfect setting to have a good time but, we all know confidence is a key player at a club. Your confidence level has a direct impact on how much fun you have which in turn depends on how well dressed you are.

The idea of hitting a club for many is to forgo rules which one has to follow otherwise on a daily basis. This is mostly true but, some clubbing rules were made to save you from a potential “no face night”, fashion wise. Consider them as guidelines more than rules to avoid potential fashion Faux Pas.

Begin with understanding the club scene: How you dress should always be influenced by the place you are going to. Ask simple questions to understand the place.

  • Is it upscale and swanky? Some of these places require you to be in a suit like attire.
  • Does the club have a theme for the night? You don’t want to be the misfit at a theme party. There is nothing more boring than that.
  • Does the club have a restaurant attached to it? If so, dress slightly conservative.
  • Once you have answers to the above questions, remember the following checklist while choosing attire.

  • Take a shower and deodorize well before getting dressed. Obviously the place will be packed and slightly warmer. Plus if you intend to dance, you don’t want to be sweating through the roof before hitting the dance floor.
  • Keep a pack of gums, mouth fresheners and breadth strips. No one likes to smell an ashtray.
  • Do not wear anything that is extremely body hugging or flashy. Instead, opt for tailored clothes in pleasant hues.
  • Stay away from bold floral and matching patterned outfits unless, it is a bohemian or a retro theme party.
  • There is a fine line between experimental dressing and plain confusing, understand this. Avoid common mistakes like drowning yourself in monogrammed clothes, wearing a pair of shorts that is way too short or showing up bare chested to name a few.
  • Stay away from sheer fabrics. It is a complete downer.
  • Accessorize but, be a minimalist.
  • As a rule wear shoes. Some clubs allow open feet footwear and some don’t. Avoid potential embarrassment and play safe by always turning up in shoes. This said; remember not to allow your socks to peep through the trousers.
  • Dress to impress and put on your best behavior. This will score you brownie points with the ladies for sure.
