With wedding season about to kick off, you'll want to start prepping your wardrobe for all the surrounding events. In addition to your rotation of ceremony and reception dresses—outdoor, beach, black-tie, etc.—plus a bridal shower outfit that won't offend the moms and grandmas, the bachelorette party outfit is the one you can have the most fun putting together. Because, like the night itself, the rules are lax and general vibe less, well, restrained.
But on the flip side, a lack of imposed wardrobe guidelines can lead to confusion and an overwhelming abundance of outfit options. (Is there a dress code for Thunder From Down Under, btw? Just asking for a friend.) So we put together the ideal bachelorette party outfit for you—whether you're hitting the clubs in Vegas or partaking in a dignified chef's table dinner with the ladies, and anything in between.
1. The Party Dress
Wearing a little black dress seems a bit somber for the occasion, but definitely stay away from white or lacy pastels that could encroach on bridal territory. So try a light, seasonal color palette in a silhouette that's made for the dance floor, like this rose pink, flounce-y sleeve mini dress.

2. Layer Up
It can get drafty in the restaurant, bar, or male entertainment dance show venue (ahem), so have a light neutral layer on hand to throw over your shoulders, just in case.

3. Not-So-Demure Pearls
It's a bachelorette party, so save your ladylike studs for afternoon tea with your BFF's future in-laws and try an edgier, punked-out twist on the classic pearl earrings.

4. Statement Bag
Get creative with your bag. We're dying over this adorably thematic leather champagne bucket, which is also roomy enough to carry Mardi Gras beads, themed party favors, and any other bachelorette-appropriate paraphernalia that will keep you ladies entertained through the early morning hours.

Nothing screams "let's celebrate!" like glitter heels, but opt for a low-block heel that won't have you whining in discomfort after three hours on the dance floor.
