After months of blank diary pages, chances are your social calendar is now filling up with catch-ups with friends, which are, most likely, going to be held at the pub. Gone are the days when you could simply drop in and grab a table—demand for pub seats is at an all-time high, with many requiring reservations, just like restaurants. Sure, this requires a little more thought and preparation on your part, but it's worth it to finally sip on your favourite tipple out of your own home surrounded by your pals.

Still, after putting all that energy into securing your table, perhaps you're in need of some assistance deciding what to wear to the pub. Naturally, that's where we come in.

Just because you don't require a ballgown and elbow-length gloves doesn't mean you can't make an effort for your next pub visit. If you want to wear your most fabulous dress, go for it! Joggers more your thing? That works, too. Still, if you're looking for an ensemble somewhere in the middle, we've got you covered.

Below, we've outlined seven outfits that strike the perfect low-key chic balance but don't feel too OTT for your surroundings. Keep scrolling for perfect pub-ready looks to wear for your next trip down to the local, freeing you up to concentrate on more important things—like your drink order.
