A karaoke night is not your normal girls’ night out.
For some people, their nerves act up and their palms get sweaty at just the mention of getting on a microphone, much less the thought of singing in front of a whole bar of strangers. Yet karaoke bars have risen in popularity over the last couple of years from big bar stages to private rooms for a more intimate karaoke setting with just your friends.
In either case, it takes a lot of guts to sing in front of people whether they’re friends or not, but every woman knows that a powerful outfit can make all the difference for your self-confidence. Follow these five karaoke fashion tips the next time you and your girls decide to hit the club and you’ll be rocking that microphone all over the stage like it was made for you.
1) Wear Something Comfortable
It’s already nerve-wracking enough to get up on stage in front of a bunch of people you may or may not know so don’t let your clothing add to that uncomfortable feeling. Rather than a tight mini skirt that may unnoticeably ride up, pull out a pair of sexy yet comfy jeans or leggings for the night.
2) Rock Bold Lipstick
You know it’s nearly impossible to swipe on a bold shade of lipstick and not feel comfortable. So pick out your brightest and flashiest shade of lip color to wear for the evening. It’s not hard to be fearless when everyone’s paying more attention to your fashionable lips than your off-key notes.
3) Leave the High Heels at Home
While high heels are usually a go-to for many women wanting to boost their confidence, for a night of dancing across a stage, they aren’t your smartest karaoke fashion accessory. Unless you can wear those heels like a second layer of skin, having to concentrate on getting all the words right and trying not to trip will be way too overwhelming to truly enjoy your night out.
4) Wear an Easy Hairstyle
While it’s fun to do your hair all nice for a girls’ night out, you know the second you grab that microphone you’re going to throw it all up in a ponytail or bun to get it out of your way. Be prepared for that by wearing your hair in a cute updo or at least pulled back so that you can easily switch from the table to the stage without any interference.
5) Be Confident
Though, the all-time, most important fashion accessory that you wear for a karaoke night out with the girls is your confidence. Whether you’re rocking bright red lipstick or a pair of your favorite worn-in jeans, the thing everyone is going to pay attention to the most is how confident you are and how much fun you’re having belting your favorite Shania Twain song.
Karaoke doesn’t take a lot of skill but it does take guts and a whole lot of confidence. Everyone knows that when you look good, you feel even better.
Steal one of these karaoke fashion tips or maybe all five the next time you go out for a night of stage entertainment and you’ll be having so much fun that your friends may have to drag your happily singing butt off the stage.
