Nothing beats a night out with friends. You get to relax and unwind while filling your Instagram stories with pictures of you and your BFFs. Whether you remember every detail or if it’s all a blur, a night out with friends is always a memorable time. The one thing we tend to stress about is what we’re going to wear. You want a dress that works for the occasion but that you can re-wear for another night out.
At Bella Barnett, our dresses work for any occasion. You might be heading to the city to your favourite nightclub or grabbing cocktails at a 5-star hotel with your other half. You want your closet to have dresses that work for any night out. You need a sparkly dress for New Year’s Eve and special occasions, along with a classic little black dress for when you don’t know where the night will take you.
We’re sharing our 10 favourite dresses to help you find the perfect one for your next night out.
- Sparkly Sequin Mini Dress
Sometimes you want to be the centre of attention. Whether it’s your birthday or an engagement party, you want to shine bright like a diamond. Our favourite feminine and flirty dress is the ‘Lalia Pink Sequin Feather Mini Dress’. It has everything you need for a fun look, from its feathers to the sequins and strapless silhouette. This dress is one that you’ll want to post all over your Instagram feed. It’ll make your fake tan ‘pop’ and is perfect for styling with your favourite sparkly accessories.
- The Classic LBD
When in doubt, wear a little black dress. It’s universally flattering, will slim your silhouette while accentuating your natural curves. A black dress gives you a neutral backdrop to accessories and makes your own. We love to shake up the look with a statement stiletto to add a pop of colour or take your look to the next level with extravagant jewellery pieces. Our ‘Hannah Black Bandage Mini Dress’ is effortlessly chic and works for any night out in the city.
- The Lady in Red
Red dresses are the universal symbol of seduction, instantly turning heads and making you the centre of the room. You can carry the red hue through with a bold crimson lip or matching monogram accessories. Red dresses are a timeless staple for your closet. You can take the simplistic silhouette to the next level with crystal detailing. Our ‘Hanny Crystal Bandage Dress’ hugs your curves to create an hourglass figure, drawing attention to your waist. The crystals along with the neckline sparkle in the light to give you a luxurious look.
- Summer Whites
If you’re heading off on a tropical vacation, you want to be packing dresses that you can wear for a night out. You need versatile silhouettes that will work everywhere, from the hotel bar to a hidden gem in the city. A white dress is a perfect choice to show off your fresh tan and give you a goddess-inspired look. Our ‘Griselda Halter White Bandage Dress’ shows off your curves with ribbed detailing that naturally draws the eye to its plunging neckline.
- A Pop of Orange
One of our favourite nights out is always a wedding. It’s a chance to catch up with friends, celebrate the next chapter of their life, and get dressed up to mark the occasion. Knowing what to wear for a wedding event can be difficult, so it’s best to go with a timeless and minimalistic silhouette. Our ‘Abbey Orange One Shoulder Bandage Dress’ has a classic look with a dramatic twist. If orange isn’t your colour, the Abbey dress is available in black, yellow, red, and blue. It’s also the perfect birthday dress for when you want to flaunt your curves for everyone to see.
- Corset-inspired Dress
A corset bodice is one of the most feminine silhouettes for dresses, hugging your curves from every angle. If you’ve ever wanted to embrace your inner Bridgerton character, this is the dress to do it. The boning of the bodice lifts your chest and holds you in place to create an hourglass silhouette. The oversized ruffles add a playful twist to the dress while keeping it sexy and seductive. You can style our ‘Kila Lace Off Shoulder Corset Dress’ with an open-toe stiletto heel or your favourite gladiator sandals for a date night look.
- Pretty in Pink
Is Elle Woods your fashion muse? Pink dresses are always guaranteed to help you steal the limelight. You want to choose a simple bandage silhouette with a flattering neckline that shows off your curves while accentuating the appearance of your butt. Our ‘Stella Dress’ is one of the most versatile in our collection, taking you from brunch with your girlfriends to a night out clubbing with your best friends.
- Metallic Mini Dress
Take your mini dress to the next level with a metallic finish. The ‘Jojo Cutout Mini Dress’ is right on trend with its long-sleeve and mini bodice silhouette. It incorporates the cut-out trend with a medium-weight fabric that hugs your curves without weighing you down. It’s the perfect dress for kicking off the holiday season, whether you’re heading to the bar with friends or grabbing cocktails in the city.
- Green with Envy
Green is a universally flattering hue that instantly elevates your look. Our ‘Maxwell Bandage Midi Dress’ captures the glamour of Old Hollywood, giving you an Elizabeth Taylor-worthy look that evokes romanticism and a timeless feel. This dress is made with our signature luxe duchess satin and a draping silhouette that elongates your silhouette with an easy-to-wear design.
- Dance the Night Away
Any night out with friends has to include dancing. You want a mini dress that moves with your curves as you see the night out on the dance floor. Our ‘Vacana Sequin Mini Dress’ features sequin detailing that gives the illusions of feathers on your dress, shaking with your curves as you move. Add oversized statement earrings and keep the rest of your look simple to let the dress take centre stage.
