It’s easy to get stuck in a fashion rut when it comes to hitting the club or going out with the girls. We tend to fall into a particular uniform when it comes to clothing – you have a certain style you wear for work, a look you’re comfortable in at home, and your usual outfit that you wear when you want to look a little more dressed up. If you want to step up your style game when you hit the club this weekend, use these upgrade ideas.

Boost your accessory game. You can wear the same old outfit you’ve been wearing for years but totally transform the look if you mix up your accessories. We all know that you need an easy-to-carry comfortable handbag when you’re going out for the night, but your clutch doesn’t have to be plain and generic. You can buy designer evening bags with bold, bright colours and creative prints that will instantly make your look stand out from the crowd without having to veer too far away from your fashion comfort zone.

Go sporty. If there’s anything we’ve learned from the Kardashians and Rihanna lately, it’s that the sporty athleisure trend isn’t purely reserved for street style. A comfortable but fashion-forward sporty outfit can look just as cool in the club as it does on Instagram. Leave the leggings at home, but feel free to play around with track jackets, sports jerseys, silk shorts and fresh white trainers for a cool new take on club fashion.

Switch up the fabrics. Skinny jeans and killer heels have been a fashion fave for quite a few years now, and there’s nothing wrong with that. If you’re feeling a little tired of your dark denim and want to upgrade the look for a more night-friendly feel, switch over to the dark side and try leather instead. Channel your inner Kate moss in leather skinny pants – they have a super-cool rocker vibe that will set you apart from the line full of girls tugging down their same old high-waist bodycon skirts.

Don’t be shy with sparkles. If there’s any time that it’s totally okay to bring out a ton of sequins, it’s in the club for your girl’s night out. If you’re single and ready to mingle, this is the ideal way to make sure all eyes are on you. Invest in a sparkly sequin mini dress that flows on your body in all that right ways, and pair it with a set of thigh-high boots if you don’t feel like showing a whole lot of skin all at once.

Warm up in winter. Going out at night during the winter is a tough call. You want to feel sexy and get glammed up, but as soon as you step foot out of your front door, a night under the duvet with Netflix suddenly sounds a whole lot more appealing. If it’s chilly out there but you still want to get out for the night, throw a faux-fur jacket or coat over your dress for instant old-school style. A pair of thick opaque tights are an absolute must-have for winter, too – they’ll keep your legs cosy so you can rock your favourite mini-dress all year round.
