Going to a bar is all about having fun with friends or co-workers, maybe flirting with cute guys and definitely making long-lasting memories. Sometimes it’s an after-office, a birthday celebration or a casual Friday plan, but dressing up to the occasion can get a bit frustrating when you’ve run out of ideas on what to wear to a bar.
And truth is, we all want to look cute and sexy when we go out, so it’s normal to stress about your bar outfits.
To help you with this, I’ll show you cute bar outfits that will perfectly show you how to create great ensembles for your night out. They will leave you inspired with plenty of ideas so next time you plan on going to a bar, the dressing will not be a problem at all and you can entirely focus on having a great night.
The basics of bar outfits for girls
Before going through bar outfit ideas, let’s keep in mind some things that will help you pull off the best look.
1. Make sure you know if there’s a lot of walking involved.
Are you driving or taking a cab? Or are you walking there or bar hopping? This is important because your shoes should be chosen on how much you’re going to walk. Avoid pumps or stilettos if you’re going to be walking for a while.
2. What’s the weather like?
If it’s summer it becomes a bit easier, but during the rest of the seasons, it’s important to know if you’re going to be queuing for a long time because if so, you need to take into consideration how cold it is in order to choose the right layers.
If you’re most probably not going to queue, then wearing many layers will be annoying and expensive if you’re planning on paying for leaving your jackets/coats at the bar (there are some bars that charge you per piece).
3. Dress code
Make sure you know where you’re heading to because there are some fancy bars that will not allow you to go in ripped jeans or sneakers. Though very few, some bars have a strict dress code and will not hesitate in denying your entry if your outfit doesn’t follow their rules.
Cute and sexy bar outfits
Now that you know what to keep in mind when going to a bar, let’s talk about cute and sexy bar outfits!
1. Leather skirts
Leather skirts are the definition of sexy and chic, making them a perfect option to wear to a bar. They’re also very versatile, so choosing the right top and shoes is a no brainer.
You can opt for black and white bar outfits:
Or an all-black attire for a sexy and mysterious look:

2. Leather Leggings
Leather is the perfect go-to piece for sexy and cute bar outfits. Leather leggings are as versatile as leather skirts, so if you’re planning a winter bar outfit, leather leggings are a better idea to keep yourself warmer.
Leather leggings are usually black, so it’s easy to style them and create endless combination possibilities.
As I’ve mentioned, you can never go wrong with black and white outfits:
