    Tiamaria, thats a shame you had that experience in Edinburgh. I live in Aberdeen and have nights out both here and in Edinburgh, and whilst it is true that dressing down is totally acceptable on a night out here, we do still have nights when we love nothing more than to get glammed up to the max. It also depends on where you go as well - in some of the more relaxed pubs and bars, dressing up just does not fit. Also, we tend to have to be more mindful of the cold weather, so jackets are a must!

    I had a night out after planning to meet a friend for tea, but we got carried away on the wine and ended up clubbing in our jeans and T-shirts! But It was actually had one of the best nights ever, maybe cos usually I spend most of my time in the ladies fixing my lipgloss or pulling my dress down :lol:

    I think as long as you are comfortable, happy and having a laugh, each to their own what they wear xx

    It is annoying though when you have made heaps of effort and it took lyk three hours to get ready, when the person next to you at the bar looks exactly like you did before you started getting ready :lol:

    I hate how casual everyone is nowadays. It's a lousy trend in my opinion.

    yeah same casual is good but going out is when you're meant to get dressed up!

    me and my friends went away for a weekend only about an hour away - we got dressed up but we were pretty casual by normal standards and didnt stand out too much but people still looked

    the guy looks were good but we got stared down by some girls and got the dirtiest looks! hehe I mean i'm nothing special but i felt good when we got death stared at by the girls hehe

    It is sooo true about England it's either boobs and bums out with oddles of fake tan or t-shirts and trainers (even in the theatre!!)

    In Bristol I tend to wear wrap dresses, shirt dresses, jeans and nice camis or a sheer shirt and trousers....

    Because of this and my height (5'11) people think I am about 30 when I am 23 just cos I don't dress like a tart or a teenager!!

    Girls tend to dress classier in Bath but I think thats cos there is a lot of money in the area......

    Ok well, this is good for a laugh I think, where I live the clubs people go to are like country bars. You would usually see, tight bootcut or flared jeans, cowboy boots, or maybe sparkly recycled prom heels. A sparkly skimpy top (usually black for ultimate slimming effects) tiny guess logo purse, costume jewelry, and perhaps a cowboy hat. It's all very :sick: to me. As a result, I never go to bars or clubs. :lol:

    whenever i go out i keep it relatively casual and dressy at the same time. i make an effort but not too much. i don't think you'd be out of place in glasgow tiamaria, our approach to club dressing is a bit more like the liverpool kind ;) of course as a glaswegian i must say glasgow is much better for night life than edinburgh in so many ways! a lot less snobby and more fun :)

    Regarding the sentence in bold: How pretentious. I think that is an awful attitude for an area to uphold. Of course your not going to get into a club or bar in Manchester or my hometown looking like youve just woken up, but if you mean this to be literal, I'm glad that I live in an area where the focus is on having a good time, not looking good.

    for clubbing, if I plan on dancing a lot, I usually wear beat/worn in shoes because my feet are going to get stomped on all night on the dance floor. But if it is a more relaxed type party at a bar and pool table, I like to wear black patent leather shoes.

    ^^
    I feel your pain, there was a time when a woman stepped and scrapped on my dress shoes with her metal pointed heal. She did it unintentionally, but ever since that instance I always wear beat up shoes when I plan on dancing. Matter of fact, the pair of the shoes that she had ruined are my dancing shoes. LOL

    Depends where and what. We got studentnights on some of the clubs/bars on Thursdays or Fridays, and then I'm dressing pretty laid-back, almost like how I dress ordinary (this is also what I do when I'm going to gigs. Which doesn't mean that I look boring, because my ordinary style is not ordinary. :p ). Mostly this is what I do when I'm going out, but some few times I go to more fancy places and then I wear more sexy clothes, and always a coat when it's winter.

    On NYE I wore heels for 12 hours in a row, and I promised myself after that I'd never wear heels on nights out anymore (which is a promise I've kept).

    In my head I've been a wear whatever you want type since I can remember. Recently I have started to push. Being part of all that East London trendy crap makes it easier. Cover of darkness lets the freaks come out to play, get messy and get photographed. Last week me and my girlfriend went to a warehouse party dressed as identical Thai ladyboys/hookers. The theme was 'Bangcockney' in honour of a girl leaving east London to return to Thailand.

    Starting to mix womens tops and accessories into my wardrobe. A staple of skinny jeans is giving way to leggings (the neo rock trash rave electro culture is allowing men to mix it all up). My latest experiments have been leggings with cowl neck jumpers and very bold, playful belts and jewellery all balanced on top of old fashioned womens stiletto laceup shoes. A little mascara and eyeliner helps even things out. I like to mix all this with slightly dishevelled hair and a little stubble. It helps that my girlfriend is actually encouraging this to happen.

    So far I have had nothing but praise and a few 'interested' eyebrows

    It's all fun I hope.
