Going out is the best way to let of steam, have some fun and hang out with friends but if you have ever had the agony of opening your wardrobe and having NOTHING to wear, it can quickly become a nightmare.
The sensation of having nothing to wear seems to be pretty much exclusive to women. Part of the reason is that our clothes tend to have a defining quality about them so when you don’t know what to wear, it’s often because you don’t know who you want to be at that moment. Even when you are just planning a fun night out with the gals.
We could get into some pretty heavy feminist debate about this right now, but instead we'll dive into some practical solutions...
Start with Comfort
When you are on a night out, the worst thing in the world is having to go home early because your shoes are rubbing or your dress is too tight. Starting with comfort is a much smarter option because this night is about fun not high fashion!
While towering high heels look great on the catwalk, if you want to dance the night away a pair of flats or even trainers might be more appropriate. Party shoes with straps across are also a good idea as you won’t be worried about them coming off while you walk.
As for clothes, choosing something that you can move around in easily is essential. Elasticated waists are no longer reserved for old people and now offer much more flexibility for you to throw some shapes on the floor. Loose tops and trouser combos are also great if you’re feeling a bit schlumpy as the fabric is more breathable.
The highlight of any outfit is always the accessories and luckily, these are the kind of things that fit no matter how you feel. Necklaces are always easy to wear and can go with pretty much anything. You might go for a long pendant to give the impression of a plunging neckline while you are actually in a high neck tee or you could go for something little that adds a glimmer of shine to an otherwise plain outfit.

But accessories don’t stop there and the silk scarf is really having a moment this year. In fact, silk scarves are being styled as everything from dresses to hair pieces so get a few in and wear as you wish.
Style Your Hair
The best thing about your hair is that there are almost endless possibilities - especially if you are willing to wear a wig! 2019 is all about having fun with your style and lots of models have shown off bright colors, intriguing braiding and all kinds of accessories too.
If you feel like your outfit isn’t singing as much as it should, a bold hairstyle could be the answer, drawing all attention upwards to your face. Add a thin line of black eyeliner and some red lips and you, my friend, are good to go.
