What about jeans and a purple camisole top? Not too revealing or too 'mutton'!!

A good number of clubs would turn away someone (a woman you understand) in jeans, don't do that! A clingy, above knee dress but not nearly showing your knickers! Get your legs out!! Screw 'don't do', unless you have a bad condition or something that you honestly couldn't get past showing, let lose and be proud of your legs!! Bit of fake tan, sorted!

Something ROUGHLY like this

I am not saying get this, but maybe something a little bit longer but still above the knee, party but not mutton

which clubs? i've never been to a club that wouldn't take a woman in jeans...(and i used to wear dresses clubbing, eeling out of place beause most others wore jeans)

dress, sheer tights & heels - or trainers jeans and vest with zip-top for the walk there and back..

completely depends on the kind of club really.

I'd go for something fairly simple but with a nice shape

sparkly bit at neckline could be quite understated clubby

easy to wear if you have good legs!

party type dress

nice and simple

ooh, like this
smart shirt dress

I'd go for something like this with dark skinny jeans, heels and a gold clutch bag. A comfortable look for someone not used to going clubbing. You look like you've made an effort without trying to look like an 18 year old.

Tillys second and third links are lovely. Big heels and opaques like she suggested.

Or skinny jeans.

^^Agree. Simple dress, opaques, heels, or smart skinny jeans and top, again killer heels, not too over/underdone or muttony. If the club has a website you could check if they allow jeans.
