WHAT TO WEAR: Casual Date Night

What to Wear

I once heard that there is nothing more attractive than a woman’s confidence. However, finding this feeling and owning it seems to always be the struggle. If you want a little trick, I have found feeling good about yourself goes hand in hand with selecting outfit choices that are tailored to your style.

What better way to test this theory than a Casual Date Night out, a time where confidence is key. As we all know, planning for a date can be a nerve wrecking process; whether it’s your first date or 21st date, you always want to make a good impression. Choosing an outfit that plays up your femininity will give you the confidence to knock your date out of the ballpark.

Spotting this Fashionista on campus, her primarily black and muted ensemble caught my eye. Leather is making a big impression this season and these leather shorts are no exception. I love these shorts because they are in fact shorts and you can wear them in the winter time. Tailored at a classy length, this style will become a staple item in your closet this season. This Fashionista dressed for the weather, but a basic, patterned or textured pair of tights could also go comfortably under this pair.

When showing off your legs, like this Fashionista, you want to wear a shoe that will complement this feminine asset. Casual Date Nights don’t call for your dressiest and highest heels, but a low wedge is a must. The added height will give you an extra boost to make your legs more visually appealing (say hello to calf muscles). This strappy gray boot reminds me a bit of a dressed up sneaker wedge. The multitude of buckles will set you apart from the plethora of bootie wearing Fashionistas this season.

One Simple Change: Wear some confidence to a night out with friends by swapping this black and white top for a cropped sweater.
