LA TOP CLUB DRESS CODEWhen you go out in Hollywood (Los Angeles), it is important that you dress to impress. The dress code is strictly enforced at majority of L.A. top clubs and you don't want to be stuck outside while your friends breeze past you into the club.
For men, you have to toe the line between business casual and trendy chic.
For women, the general rule of thumb is that a dress and heels always works. Here are some pointers to help you dress to impress at L.A. top clubs:
LA CLUB DRESS CODES FOR MENMen: The basics men's dress code for nightclubs eliminates the obvious stuff right off the bat: no hats, no baggy or sloppy jeans, no athletic gear, no sleeveless shirts, no t-shirts, and no athletic sneakers. The general rule of thumb is that you can almost always get away with neat jeans and a button down shirt. You can also get away with a t-shirt occasionally when it is pulled off with style (think under a vest or blazer).
What about my shoes? You are always safe with leather and dress shoes. You can even occasionally get away with low profile “tennis shoes” as long as they are solid black (including the laces) if they look dressy enough and don’t have any huge logos on them. Have some trendy kicks that you want to wear out? Officially, they aren’t allowed, but most major LA top clubs are relaxing the rules on shoes if you compensate elsewhere in your outfit.
Have on a STYLISH collared shirt, jacket, nice pants with your fashionable sports shoes? Technically speaking it’s against the “rules,” but you might be just fine.
LA CLUB DRESS CODES FOR WOMENWomen: Wear something simple and sexy and you'll almost never have any problems. The standard night out for a girl involves a tight dress and a pair of heels. There are other combinations that work (i.e. skirt with a cute top, tight black pants with a sexy top, etc.), but it is rare that you see a girl in jeans at a nightclub. Depending on the look you pair it with, it could be pulled off, but it is better to stick with the sure things.
The first time you head out to a club, you may not be aware of the theme or proper dress codes; especially since there's no strict dress codes for most LA top clubs. One way to make sure that you look the part is to check out the club’s website for images of LA top club party attendees.
