A rule that both Fashionistas and Fashionistos should keep close to their heart, or on their sleeve, is that they should always dress up for a date. Your special someone will notice and appreciate when you look your best, whether it’s on a first date or for a three-year anniversary dinner. Today’s “What To Wear” advice is to dress to impress. Fashionistas, do not let your appearance slide, even if you’ve got the guy!
This Fashionista had it spot-on with her ensemble. She kept her casual date night look comfortable, while managing to look chic and put-together. Although you want to look like you made an effort to doll up, you don’t want to look like you’re trying too hard. Her tea-style dress was very sweet. This dress would be appropriate for a variety of casual date night activities–from an outdoor concert to a night walk in the city. The tea-style dress is ’50s-inspired, yet I loved the modernity of the cutout at her waist.
A cross-body bag is great for traveling light on a casual date. This Fashionista’s bag was a good size for carrying date night essentials: her phone, wallet and lip-gloss. I loved how she kept her accessories simple by choosing little silver rings and layering her thin chain necklaces. Her flat gladiator-inspired sandals were a more appropriate choice of footwear for a casual date night than a pair of heels.
This Fashionista’s entire outfit was picture perfect for a casual date night. I imagined her in this outfit with her special someone, enjoying dinner at a local restaurant or sharing a picnic at the drive-in cinema.
One Simple Change: Tea-style dresses are quite versatile, and can easily go from casual to dressed up. This Fashionista’s dress will also look adorable paired with a chunky knit sweater in a bold colour or a geometric print, creating an outfit that she can wear to class.
