    to miss out

    Is the verb 'miss out' separable or inseparable?

    e.g. I missed it out. or I missed out it.(the party)

    Do you mean that you didn't go to the party? If so:

    I missed out on it.
    I missed it.

    "To miss out" doesn't really work in the sense you think it does when talking about a party. It means "to omit".
    "To miss out on something" means that you were not involved, not included or didn't go.
