How to dress for a nightclub date

Nightclub dates are awkward things. Clubs are where you go to pick up and offer limited chances for conversation so are not the most appropriate location for getting to know someone; yet they’re casual enough to dispel any nerves you might have. But what do you wear when you arrive at the club with the girl you’re planning on taking home, with no view to picking up?

You want to look good, but still demonstrate in your attire that you are not out to impress anyone except your date.

Classic dressing

Play it safe by wearing trendy rather than flashy, attention-seeking clothes. A weird shirt or shiny jacket is a great talking point when you’re out to get some action, but it won’t impress your date. There’s a huge difference between stylish dressing and peacocking; it’s not hard to figure out the balance you need to strike.

Bring a jacket

Your date will be eternally grateful for the jacket or sweater you’ve brought along once you’ve left. The cloakroom fee is worth it!

Wear nice shoes

Most women care about shoes. Your date will notice what’s on your feet and she will judge you. No runners- not even your cleanest ones! A nice pair of oxfords will do the trick. Dress shoes are always appropriate while clubbing and on a date; they’re your only choice.

Don’t wear a tie

Rookie mistake. You’re going on a date to a sweaty club. A tie would be out of place. Your date will appreciate the effort you’ve gone to, but may think you’re a weirdo. If you really want to go that extra mile, don a bowtie instead.
