WHAT TO WEAR: Casual Date Night

What to Wear

How many of us have looked into our closet, minutes before we’re supposed to leave for a date and decided that we have absolutely nothing to wear? I bet that on more than one occasion most of us have faced that conundrum. It always seems that we have those fashion brain farts at the worst moments, but luckily for you I saw this Fashionista last week in the perfect casual date night outfit.

Her leather leggings and bold red sweater is a great casual date night outfit that works well during the winter time and holidays. Her sweater was the first thing that caught my eye and I love how casual and effortless she looked in it. Be sure to grab a sweater like hers here and you’ll look festive and comfortable in whatever you pair it with.

Her leggings were the next piece that caught my eye. They add a bit of sexiness and spunk to her outfit and is the perfect alternative to a pair of jeans.  I especially loved they also had a hint of fabric to it as well which looks both flattering and stylish. You can find a similar pair here from Forever 21.

Next, can we talk about how fabulous this Fashionista’s ombre hair is? I’ve always been a fan of the ombre hairstyle and this Fashionista’s was particularly amazing. She also reminded me of one of my favorite bloggers, Jules of Sincerely Jules. Both of them rock the ombre hairstyle and I’m definitely super envious.

To finish off her outfit, this Fashionista sported a pair of lace up short heeled booties and a cool studded bag. Instead of sporting those hard to walk in four inch heels for a date, grab a pair of shorter heeled booties like this Fashionista did. They’ll still elongate your legs but will be infinitely more comfortable. You can find a similar pair of booties here and a similar bag here.

This Fashionista’s outfit was the perfect combination of style and comfort and was definitely a practical choice when it comes to date night outfits. Next time you spend hours rummaging your closet for date night, just grab a simple sweater and a pair of sexy leather leggings for the perfect look!
