WHAT TO WEAR: Casual Date Night

What to Wear

Did somebody say date night? Oh yes they did, and when it comes to date night a Fashionista has to lay down some ground rules. Besides having the fluttering butterfly sensation in your stomach before a casual date night, most Fashionistas rummage through their closets like there is no tomorrow trying to find that perfectly chic and “not trying too hard” outfit.

This Fashionista caught my attention immediately. Her ensemble is stunning and effortless. She is a beauty and has on a fabulous representation for a casual date night outfit. Spring has sprung and this Fashionista’s Paisley Pop Slit Maxi Dress from Forever 21 is absolutely fashionable. The red hue of the maxi gives it a sultry flair and has playful slits at the bottom of the dress that are key for the warmer nights in Tucson. Maxi dresses are trendy, easy to throw on and can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion.

This Fashionista chose to dress up her maxi dress with a pair of strappy gladiator heeled sandals from Forever 21. I love how she paired her ensemble with the light brown sandals because maxi dresses are often hard to pair the perfect shoe with. The open-toed sandal complements her maxi dress well. Casual date night wear also calls for a lower heel because sometimes sky high pumps are not practical for casual attire.

Recently, gold has been high on my trending list, and her antique gold bib statement necklace from H&M is a great piece that looks fantastic against her skin tone. You can never go wrong with a statement necklace because it adds the right amount of pizzazz to any casual date night outfit. This Fashionista looks ready for a man to sweep her off her feet.

One Simple Change: Throw over a sheer cream oversized pullover and voilà! Maxi dress turned into a maxi skirt. Slip on some beige patent leather TKEES for a stylish class look.
