Reader Question - What to Wear to a Bachlorette Party?

Hi Alicia,In April, I will be attending a bachlorette party weekend in Miami. I am not sure what I should wear for the occasion. Do you have any suggestions? 


A bachlorette party is always a lot of fun, but as I have gotten older I am always torn on what to wear for an evening out especially if a club is involved. So I have put together six looks that could work in Miami. I also tried to be budget friendly because who wants to spend a fortune on looks for one weekend. 

Look 1: Little Black Dress 

I am sure all of us have a little black dress in our closets. A LBD could definitely work for a bachlorette party. When selected a LBD I would select one that is a little tighter fitting to show off your figure and look dressy for an evening out. For accessories, I would wear a pair of large chandelier earrings, a cocktail ring, and strappy heels. I selected a black lace dress because lace is a huge trend right now.

Look 2: Cocktail Dress 

If you don’t want to wear a black dress then you could also wear a different cocktail dress. I would again select a form fitting dress. I selected a red dress because red can be used for Christmas parties or Valentine’s Day. With the red dress, I selected silver accessories including a fun silver clutch. I selected open toe shoes because it could be really hot in Miami in April so I don’t want to have hot feet.

Look 3: Color Block 

A huge trend for spring is color blocking. As I mentioned here, color blocking is simple to wear just stick to the color circle. I personally love combining red and pink. So a night in Miami for color blocking would be great with a pink skirt and red top. I paired the look with a neutral clutch trimmed in gold and nude heels. Nude heels help make your legs look longer and although not pumps these red heels are perfect for spring and Miami.

Look 4: Sequins 

Sequins are always a fun look for a night out. I have been on the hunt for a sequin skirt for ages even though I don’t know where I would wear it. But if I were going to Miami for a bachlorette party I would have a reason. I really like the zig zag print of this sequin skirt. I picked a top with a little back details and strappy heels. Since the skirt has silver in it I selected silver bracelets and earrings.

Look 5: Ankle Length Pants 

If you are self conscious in wearing skirts and being on the dance floor, I recommend pants. But Miami in April pants will be a little too warm. So why not try ankle length pants. Ankle length pants still look extremely dressy and gorgeous with a pair of heels. I selected a pair of black ankle length pants and a silver sequin tank. Since the outfit is neutral colors (I think silver is neutral), I selected accessories to add a pop of color with the red heels, earrings, and clutch.

Look 6: Shorts and Blazer 

Pairing shorts and a blazer is nothing new but has been seen on many celebrities including Carrie Underwood. Fashion is all about mixing and matching. So mixing the shorts with a blazer you still looking classy but showing off your legs. For the bachlorette party look, I selected a pair of faux leather shorts, sequin tank (for a little sparkle) and a bright pink blazer. I love the shorts with a blazer but wanted the top to stand on its own if you were too warm to wear a blazer.
