What do you wear for a night out if you're late 30s?
1) black jersey tulip dress (mid thigh in length) with 3/4 sleeves which I wear with tan suede flat other the knee boots and a leather and pearl strand wrap choker 2) black leather leggings with a black sheer blouse, black vest top underneath, stiletto biker boots and silver collar type statement necklace.
My going out outfit consists of skinny jeans, black tank top, black suede court shoes and some dazzling jewellery. It's just my weekend wardrobe with my weekday shoes and jazzed up with a bit of bling. I go out so rarely in the evenings I don't think its worth having separate outfits for it
Watching as I could do with inspiration. I tend to concentrate on the top half as my rare nights out are normally a meal with DP. I have a couple of special sleeveless tops that I wear with smart black trousers.
Im bang in my mid 30s. It's a tough one isn't it. This weekend we are out for a family meal saturday evening, I think I might wear a jumpsuit for the first time ever! Over Christmas I wore a lot of pencil dresses.
Leather skirt and patterned silk shirt or perhaps coated skinnies, heeled boots and a more sheer top with camisole underneath. My friends wear similar outfits with funky accessories or plain ish dresses, black tights and shoe boots/ non clumpy ankle boots.
I'm struggling with this myself - tomorrow is drinks out with husband and workmates in a "not trying too hard" bar so I'm trying to work out how to dress up my chelsea boots, leather jacket and dark skinnies. I have a red tunic top with crisscross back I might wear.
Last week I went out and wore: tight, black flat fronted skinny trousers with a velvet flock pattern on, a sort of deep v neck line gold loose top that falls off one shoulder, very high shoes and some nice jewellery oh and a metallic smokey eye and big hair.
I also have some dressy dresses in my wardrobe too. Pencil (wiggle) dresses, and also a few floaty pleated midi skirts that I'd wear with heels and a plain top with a huge statement necklace.
