Hi,

I've lived in Spain for a long time to an area where tourists from the UK flock to go clubbing. If anyones been to Spain you'll know that you get away with wearing anything you like in a club, from wearing literally nothing but shorts to dressing up as a cowboy. People rarely dress up smart, the smartest it gets is chinos and a t shirt.

I'm now 50/50 between Spain and the UK and have absolutely no idea how to dress for a UK club. I know you're meant to dress smarter but I'm after some examples.

Would prefer input from people who club in the UK, not AUS or the US.

Thanks.

to be honest alot of people wear t-shirts with chinos or dark blue/black jeans

I see alot of people wearing hollister but people also wear shirts too.

Fancy dress is only during haloween but you see a few nights out when people are wearing them maybe like a birthday or something but its not common :)

I only go clubbing in my town these days and so not a big city, but here are my observations:

- Don't wear shorts

- Don't wear trainers (although you can occasionally slip past them if you are wearing non-white trainers)

- Some clubs won't let in people in fancy dress

- Most clubs won't let in people who've got their face covered

- Generic club dress is:
- Work shoes (or the shoes they used to wear to school if they don't wear smart shoes for work)
- Jeans in a subtle colour (dark blue/black)
- Darkly coloured button up shirt with a collar

Wear exactly that and you'll be indistinguishable from everyone else at almost every club.

- Type of club affects what you wear. If it's a indie club then leather jackets, t-shirts, necklaces, wrist bands are the order of the day. If it's a student place, wear the generic kit, but with a polo instead of a normal shirt. Go into a club for older people and you'll see more suit jackets.

That's the basics. You learn that the hard way after about a year of clubbing in this country when at least one member of the group will get turned away; "What? These are smart trainers".

I got bored of doing the normal thing shortly after reading the game. I now stand out not because I'm garish, but because I mix it up a little. Some examples include:
- long sleeve t-shirt with buttons 50% down the centre, waistcoat over the top
- basic short sleeve t-shirt with blazer over the top
- For days when I don't want to put any effort into my appearance, I put a pea coat over the top of anything so the bouncers don't see what I'm wearing at the door so I get in problem free. I also wear some deck shoes (never had any problems with them in any club I've tried to get into).

Depends on the venue.

Sometimes I'll go casual, jeans, t-shirt, leather jacket. Then other times I'll wear a suit. What I do if I go to a club I haven't been before is find last weeks events photos. Not only can I see the kind of attire most people wear, but can also check out the quality of girls to expect.
