What To Wear On A Night Out: The Brainwave Outfit Ideas You Need To Shop

Anyone else feeling fashion fatigued already at the thought of all the Christmas and New Year outfit changes? An LBD is great and everything but there’s only so many times you can pull that *groundbreaking* move. Other options that don’t include glitter, tack and too much boob are most welcome. Here’s what we came up with for what to wear on a big night out.

Double up on your daytime

Since normcore took over the scene daytime means all round the clock. Which is good news for that funnel neck knitwear you’ve been stockpiling all winter.

Team a turtle neck with some simple striped wide-leg trousers, a cuff and some pony hair plimsolls or slip on flats Alexa Chung style.You’re that rad you don't even need heels to prove it.

Trousers: £340 from Acne

Necklace: £18.50 from Topshop

Jumper: £35.99 from Zara

Bag: £39.99 from Zara

Shoes: £19.99 from Zara

Sequin trews

Always a better option. No danger of getting a glitter flake in your eye. Style up your statement pants with simple black knitwear and a textured gilet for a throw on finish that screams NYC chic.

For those finishing touches, top it off with a strong red lip and cool grey mani because no one wants to be the girl holding champers with chipped nails #instagramsin

Trousers: £29.99 from H&M

Gilet: £34.99 from H&M

Shoes: £72 from Topshop

Nail Polish: £14 from Nails Inc

Necklace: £29.99 from Zara

Polo Neck: £9.90 from Uniqlo

Lipstick: £15.50 from MAC

Wool blend

Ok, so maybe save this for a champagne and cocktails kinda night out. Being the girl with the matted, beer soaked jumper on is never ideal. Dress up your winter warmers with some equally fluffy footwear and finish with an envelope clutch. The queue can be as long as it likes because you're as as warm as toast!

Top: £34.99 from H&M

Trousers: £29.99 from H&M

Bangle: £25 from Whistles

Bag: £35 from ASOS

Shoes: £58 from Topshop

Let's get shirty

Let me introduce you to a little trick I learned from the likes of Kris Jenner and Olivia Palermo (Don't judge me). Take an ordinary white collared shirt and layer it under a strapless cocktail dress for a modern twist on the classic LBD.

For those of you who have always been a 'trousers girl' and will use any old excuse to avoid a party dress - you've officially been rumbled. This is the perfect blend of girly glamour meets tomboy tailoring. Victoria Beckham would be proud.

The best bit? Opting for a monochrome outfit means more options for shoes. Always an advantage!

Dress: £80 from Topshop

Shirt: £36 from Topshop

Shoes leopard print: £85 from Topshop

Shoes heels sandals: £45 from ASOS

Watch: £95 from Olivia Burton at Topshop

Earrings: £12 from Coast

Bag rules are for fools: £18 from notonthehighstreet.com

Bag blue feather clutch: £50 from Miss Selfridge

Executive party goer

They say don't mix business and pleasure but where this outfit's concerned that's exactly what you should do. Suit separates teamed with flirty lace eyelash bralets might not be work appropriate, this much is true, but as soon as it's time to clock off you'll be looking like you the boss.

Wear your blazer unbuttoned over the top of your bralet or drape over your shoulders for a sultry Saturday night number that's just the right side of revealing.

Or take the subdued approach by layering a long sleeved collared shirt under your bralet. You see, we have all the answers.

Top it off with a swipe of vampy lippy and you're good to partay.

Bralet: £22 from Topshop

Blazer: £49.99 from Zara

Trousers: £50 from Topshop

Lipstick: £23 from Charlotte Tilbury

Bag: £55 from Coast

Bangle: £40 from Follie Follie
