The midweek night out: it creeps up on you. One minute you’re in the student union post-lecture, or in the pub after work, and the next thing you know it’s 3am and you’re chowing down on a safety kebab trying to remember the exact moment it all got out of hand. Now, because the best BNOs happen spontaneously (and that usually means an outfit change isn’t an option), we’ve pulled together a look you can wear during the day that’s both low-key comfy and club-worthy in equal measure. You know, just in case...

There’s one sure-fire way of being prepared for an accidental ‘big one’, and that’s to take one aspect of your look and smarten it up. Think choosing a shirt instead of a tee, or boots instead of trainers. For this look, we’ve gone for a pair of smart check trousers. To contrast the more formal base, team it with a casual striped tee like the one above from Mennace. Mixing stripes and checks might be considered a sartorial sin, but this isn’t a family wedding, and experimentation is very much encouraged.

Going out-out usually involves some dancing (well it does for us anyway), so your footwear choice needs to accommodate. A pair of super-fresh Air Max kicks with all that air-cushioned comfort should keep you on the dance floor from entry until the lights come on, no problem. To bring the whole look together, try a subtle chain necklace – that little bit of jewellery can help shift your casual look into snazzier territory, stat. With your look sorted, all you have to do now is figure out how you're going to make it into work on time tomorrow. Enjoy.
