What the hell do you wear out clubbing? That is the interminable question.
Last week, I went going to Charlotte with Wes to a club called Phoenix to see our favorite DJ group, Above & Beyond. Wes had bought the tickets like 2 months ago and as the date began to get more and more close, I started to wonder what the heck I would wear out to the club. I Googled “what to wear to the club” and found NOTHING helpful at all.
So here I am, writing a mini-guide on what to wear when you go out clubbing or dancing.
Now mind you, I am a person that likes to dance and jump around when there’s good music playing, so I knew that I wouldn’t be wearing stilettos. I usually wear flat sandals or cowboy boots when I go out clubbing, but the last 2 times I had worn them my feet ended up throbbing with pain for several days afterward. Then I also thought about wearing my Crocs Malindi flats which are ridiculously comfortable, but then Wes asked me, “baby, why don’t you just wear your sneakers?”
For the longest time, I thought that a female wearing sneakers out to the club with just end up sticking out like a sore thumb and not feeling as sexy as she wants to feel. Even though I have the BEST athletic shoes ever, which I love dearly and wear happily when walking or shopping, I did NOT want to wear them to the club. I really thought I’d look dumb, but let me tell you, it is NOT dumb to be comfortable and not in pain. Not being in pain is actually really cool.
So, here are my suggestions for going out:
- comfortable top [I’m wearing Judy Lee Cole. see similar] and cardigan to cover arms if you want.
- nice jeans [I’m wearing David Khan Lauren jeans. see similar.]
- athletic shoes [I’m wearing Saucony ProGrid Stabil CS men’s shoes.]
- fanny pack [I’m wearing Target’s Tokidoki lookalike. see similar and awesome LeSportsac option.]
So, these are my go-to clubbing necessities. Don’t make fun of fanny packs. When done correctly, they are super awesome and super duper handy. Wearing a fanny pack, you can jump up and down and dance around wildly and not worry about losing your purse or small wristlet. The most important thing about wearing a fanny pack is it frees your hands and arms for fist pumping. So true.
I don’t think I’ve ever been more comfortable clubbing and dancing before. I think I’ll stick to athletic shoes and fanny packs from now on, with a possible variation on shirt and pants.
Got any suggestions for comfortable club attire? leave me a comment!
