WHAT TO WEAR: Casual Date Night

What to Wear

This Fashionista is feeling fierce and flirty today, as she gets ready to take on her first date with a new guy. She’s decided to skip the fancy dinner, and go for a casual hang-out at the local bar. How do we dress for a casual date? What’s too dressy? What’s too casual? Some of us may never figure it out, but don’t worry, this Fashionista knows how to rock it out with a classy grace.

Dates can sometimes be a little awkward at first, so be sure to act confident and collected from the start. This Fashionista pulls of confidence with ease. Her bold red lipstick will initially grasp her date’s (and anybody elses date’s) attention as soon as she walks through the door. It’s beautiful, but not overbearing. She paired it up with a fierce red peacoat, which is the only colored piece she’s wearing.The shimmering gold buttons add a dressy feel to this coat, and definitely help it stand out. Aside from her remarkable coat, she adds black skinny jeans rolled up with her combat boots. Maybe it’s just me, but I can almost promise black jeans don’t count as real jeans. If you took the black jeans out and added blue jeans, the entire look would be ruined. These skinny black jeans dress the outfit up just the right amount.

Underneath that stunning coat is a sequined top with a classy white blazer. That pair up alone says, “I like to have fun, but I’m sophisticated.” What more could a guy want? Now that the outfit has his attention, make sure you do the rest.

One Simple Change: If dates aren’t in the picture anytime soon, swap out the jeans for a cute mini skirt and hit the town for a girls night out!
