Let there be light! 6 ways to glam up after dark

by Esho Wemimo

Dressing for the night involves using bold items of clothing as well as well as make up. This is because it’s harder to get noticed in a neutral toned ensemble after the sun has gone down.

To make a bold fashion statement after sunset, here are some tips.

1.    Bold make up

Red lips, smoky eyes and glittery powder will draw attention to you on a night out especially in dim-lit places. Catch that guy’s attention across the room with your full scarlet lips.

2.    Sequins



These are great for a night event as they reflect light and look breath-taking if accessorized properly. Sequins could come in form of tank tops, pants, skirts, shoes, dresses, clutches or even brooches basically any item of fashion can come in sequins. It’s a very sexy look and should be the key piece of any night out outfit but don’t overdo it or risk looking like a disco ball!

3.    Neon nail polish

 The red nail polish is a staple as it never goes out of style however let’s all give it a break- opt for neon nail polish. Neon nail polish is shiny, gives the nails an edgier look. In order to ace the neon nail polish after sunset, the colour has to be in contrast to your outfit so they stand out, make a statement of their own. Another hint, while rocking the neon nails, don’t add another neon coloured accessory to your outfit, less is more.


4.    Animal prints

This goes a long way in making a bold fashion statement. They have a way of bringing out the wild and feline side of a lady. They also come in various items, blazers, dresses, tops, pants, bras, shoes, bags. This style is not easy to pull off; it takes a minimalistic approach to ace the style.

In order to look glamorous, the key to the animal print trend is to pick just one statement piece, do not have more than one animal print in your ensemble, afterwards add minimal jewellery and allow your animal print fashion item do all the talking.


5.    Studded or spiked accessories

These are attention grabbing items no matter what they are on and look great on a Friday night out with the girls. This trend was seen as only restricted to the gothic and punk rock culture, however, I believe anyone can be pull the look off. Add some studded and spiked accessories to your outfit for the night out, rock on!!!!




 6. Arm Party

This trend is as easy as ABC, all you have to do is pile up a variety of bracelets on both hands. This edgy and attention grabbing look might be easy to go with at night time when work is over and all you need your hands for is eating and drinking.

Dressing up for a night our allows for experimenting and gives a form of boldness and ease as in the case of being able to wear short dresses or skirts that one is shy of wearing when the sun is out. 

Other fierce outfits for the night are white mini dresses, low back dresses and tops, sheer dresses and shorts. 

When in doubt of what to wear for a night out, the Little Black Dress, LBD, always comes to your rescue, you can’t go wrong in this.
