Jazz clubs are usually homely, warm, and welcoming places to go when you want to enjoy good music with a live band.
It’s the place to be when you need to chill from the week’s work and all its stress, to unpack all that burden and let loose.
You could let loose by dancing, enjoying excellent music, or even doing a number yourself. But before you head to a jazz club and unwind, do you know what to wear to a jazz club? No?
Not to worry, we have ten outfit suggestions for what to wear to a jazz club. Here we go;
1. Flapper dress
Flapper dresses have been synonymous with jazz clubs since the days of the Great Gatsby. It is, in fact, the first thing that comes to mind when choosing an outfit to wear to a jazz club. It is form-fitting, classy, and easy to accessorize. If this is your first time going to a jazz club, then we strongly suggest you go for a flapper dress. It’s an old fashion piece but still holds great significance regarding jazz clubs and all it represents.
2. Fringe gown
Next to a flapper dress is a Fringe dress. This dress is also form-fitting, classy, easy to accessorize, and fun to wear. If you can’t get a flapper dress, a good substitute is a Fringe dress. Fringe dresses are famous for the fringes that sway as you dance. It gives your dance moves extra points as it creates a beautiful pattern that responds to every body movement you make. Fringe dresses come in different colors, but the shiny colors are more popular as it glitters with every move. So while choosing a fringe dress, the white or silver color would be your best choice.
3. An elegant dress
The word elegant is broad, and dresses classified in this category range from a fishtail gown, a full-length gown, a form-fitting gown with thigh-high slits, or even a midi dress. Any dress at all that gives that extra elegance to whoever wears it is considered an elegant dress. From a red full-length dress with a deep back to a silk dress with a plunging neckline. Or a V-necked white dress, paired with long gloves and heels. Anything from Vera Wang to Versace that requires elegant make-up and accessories is an elegant dress.
4. Dress top on trousers
Perhaps you don’t want to be too dressy or break from the status quo. This outfit is also appropriate for a jazz club; ensure you accessorize with the right things. An egg-shell white silk top, tucked in a brown or tan-colored tailored, high waist trousers. The top’s neckline will determine if a necklace is appropriate or not. This outfit finishes with comfortable heeled shoes and a clutch purse to match. Pieces of jewelry to add are bracelets, rings, and earrings that give this dress the evening look.
5. Blouse on a midi skirt
Another option to try when trying to break free from the status quo. Let’s jump right to style suggestions. A white or beige lace top on a baby pink ankle-length flay skirt. This outfit is for a night out to dance hard to jazz music. The outfit is easy to breathe in, move in and have the best night out. Accessories can include a cross bag to contain all valuables, two to five inches heel shoes, Bangles, and round earrings.
6. Mini dress
If you’re up for a sassy vibe, this outfit does it. A simple above-the-knee-length gown. It could be a form-fitting gown with a plunging neckline, a two-piece dress with the top half attached to a flay bottom half at strategic points, or an effortless strapless mini gown. Since jazz clubs are typically reserved for cool music, this outfit would serve on a night out, where you can sit back and enjoy excellent jazz music.
7. Strapless top, shorts, and blazers
This outfit can even serve as a date outfit. Do you have a date at a jazz club? Then this is what you should wear. It’s not so unusual to have a date at a jazz club but believe us when we say it always turns out good. A live band, excellent music, dimly lit room, fantastic service, and drinks, then your banging outfit to cap it all. Your night couldn’t be any better. You can switch this look to suit your style and the impression you want to give. It could be one or two inches above the knee or many inches above the knee. You could wear a strapless crop top that shows your belly area or something that covers your entire torso. But make sure the Blazer and shorts are of the same color.
8. Shirts on plain trousers and suspenders
This outfit pays tribute to all male jazz musicians worldwide, from Ray Charles to Michael Bublé. It is the typical outfit for jazz musicians. So showing up at a jazz club in this outfit shows your respect for them and their music. A style suggestion we have is, checked trousers with a white shirt and checked suspenders too. A bow tie to seal the deal, but that is optional. However, this look isn’t for the guys alone, ladies; if you feel bold enough to pull off this outfit, go for it.
9. Corduroy pants and blazers
This is a relaxed outfit that is also appropriate for a jazz club. If you are visiting to listen to excellent music or to dance a little to burn calories and forget about your mean boss, you should wear this. Maybe it’s a date, to get to know that lovely lady, or to pop the question to the love of your life, this outfit will work the magic you need. It’s super comfortable and gives off Boss vibes. It makes you feel important and sexy at the same time. It’s an outfit to suit any weather. If it’s too hot, take off the Blazer; if it’s cold, keep on the Blazer and keep on your swag.
10. A button-down shirt and denim pants
If there’s denim, there’s swag. This look is the most relaxed outfit of all, and if there’s anything a jazz club stands for, it is being relaxed. Our only style suggestion here is; that the button-down shirt should be tucked into the denim pants and worn with leather boots. Color suggestions would be good: blue denim pants, a white or grey shirt, and brown boots. Add a leather jacket to seal the deal if the weather is cold.
