Girls - what to wear on a night out!?

Hi. We are visiting amsterdam next weekend for a hen do. I'm really stumped on what to pack though!? During the day will just be jeans and converse but what shall I pack for the evening? We will be hitting the bars / clubs and although I have read it's quite casual out there I'd still like to get a *bit* dolled up. How is the weather out there at the minute? Will it be boots and jeans or are people wearing open toe shoes yet?

Thanks :) :)

Not a girl but if I were to make a recommendation it would be tights and boots.

I don't think our weather is all that different from yours. Jeans and boots, sneakers or other shoes should be fine. It's still a bit cold for open toes, no? Plus the risk of people standing on your toes in busy nightclubs or bars... I'd stick with closed shoes.

Most Dutch girls dress quite casually, their tops might be a bit bling, and some wear dresses or skirts... But jeans are more common, especially in bars.

Then again we have so many tourists and expats, you won't stand out either way, and you can wear what you like.

Google some images of 'ade publiek' to get an impression of what people wear to clubs.

Whew!!

I was getting worried there for a minute. I could just imagine all the trauma to the folks there if all some (of us) were to wear nothing but tights and boots. Talking about nightmares!! LOL

Speaking of tights: Anyone remembers the movie Robin Hood: men in tights from 1993? :-P
