Help! I am going out tonight for first time in ages, wtf do I wear?!

(14 Posts)

DH's friend and his brother ar here, along with my IL's so the boys are taking me out for a meal and then for a drink down the main 'going out' street later. I (rather shamefully) haven't been out in months apart from to pub.
Bearing in mind I have no time to shop, my options are

this top I happened to buy yesterday with either black leggings or tights, but no clue on shoes

Black shirt dress with opaque tights

Jeans with vest with black chiffon material kimono type top over it. I have dark blue jeans, but they aren't exactly smart.

Shoe wise it's quite bad. I have some red hush puppy sensible heels, black furry boot things and black kitten heel things and that's about it.

<<panics>>

Oh sorry, I'm a size 20ish and very large of nork.

I think, as you are just going out with family friends (and presumably your DH too?) jut wear what you will feel comfortable in.

You want to enjoy your night out, not feel self-conscious.

My problem is always footwear too <sigh> the black fury boots sound nice. It is cold now.

Wear that top you bought yesterday, with the leggings and boots.

Thanks OMDB!
Even though it is just DH and mates I ahve known since school I still want to look nice, and am comfy in all those outfits which is why I need help choosing!
Plus I live ina very 'style conscious' town (think no coats as they ruin the outfits glam) so don't want to look like a twat.
PLus DH's mate is a complete fashion victim and has come down with his ncie clothes eve

lol

the top is nice. If you are going to wear the boots then it doesn't really matter whether you wear leggings or tights. Go with the tights if the leggings are on now and might be a bit saggy by the end of the day grin

saggy by the end of the day? they are saggy now?!

The top is a bit clingy so I might go for tights so less bulk round my arse...still undecided....
