WHAT TO WEAR: Casual Date Night

What to Wear

When I think of casual date night, I think of throwing on my clothes five minutes before leaving my room and tying my hair into a messy topknot bun.

Nothing to it! If you’re like me, you’ll be running out the door flailing your arms with keys, water bottle, sunglasses and purse in hand. The most fun and flirty outfit I can think of in the nick of time is pulling a sundress over my head and pairing them with some basic pumps. This Fashionista got it right by delving into the flower print trend, the perfect pattern for winter transitioning into spring. Red and black tones are romantic for Valentine’s Day inspiration and black tights always help to play up your look. Find a similar skater dress on ASOS with sleeves for a more casual look. Don’t have the patience for heels? No problem. Floral print skater dresses are able to paired with any shoe from your favorite pair of tennis shoes to oxford flats to leather sandals. You could also make a bold statement with zippered ankle boots that aren’t as tall as pumps but will still help boost your height in a short dress. Be creative in your floral pattern endeavors! Add chains, earrings, rings, watches—whatever is on your vanity counter and convenient for you to grab on your way out! It’s nice that through everybody’s over involvement in college and heavy coursework everybody still manages to find time to stop and grab a bite to eat and hang out with new faces. Don’t let the burden of getting ready get you down, even date night prep could take you just a few minutes!

One Simple Change: For a music festival, swap your pumps for combat boots and pick out a floral crown to match your dress.
