WHAT TO WEAR: Casual Date Night

What to Wear

Date night is an important event that requires mental preparation and major selfies to my best friends to make sure that my outfit is cute. Normally when I get ready for a date, whether casual or dressy, I have to start two three hours ahead of time; I go through my closet like Cher from Clueless looking at my imaginary rotating closet realizing that I have nothing to wear causing a “I should have bought that skater skirt” meltdown. Eventually everything comes together but then there’s the first date jitters which gets the best of us. We want to smell good, have a great first impression and most importantly look fabulous!

Casual dates are less stressful, but there are still some nerves that come with it. This Fashionista was spotted hanging around in the park with friends. I loved her outfit because it showed the appeal of the perfect casual date night outfit. This Fashionista says that she loves to score deals with shopping and mixes high with low. This means mixing your favorite Zara slacks with a thrifted blouse making you look a hundred bucks when you probably only spent thirty. The Fashionista’s black maxi skirt gives the outfit a comfy and cute look. She paired her skirt with a simple ¾ sleeve T-shirt. She spiced up her simple pieces with a super cute printed scarf. A scarf can always add that extra appeal to a pair of jeans and a plain T-shirt. She finished off her look with black sandals. Her accessories are what caught my eye because she had both wrists full of bracelets that she got from all over the world thanks to her parents. A cross-body bag is the best accessory to carry for a casual date. It allows you to carry your lipgloss, identification cards and any other small essentials you may need. This way when your date first looks up he won’t see your big purse but instead you and your fabulous outfit.

This outfit is the perfect statement to make for casual date night. The maxi skirt which is a simple piece that every Fashionista should have in her closet adds that feminine vibe to the outfit and the accessories make the outfit pop. Your date will be speechless in a good way!

One Simple Change: To take this from casual date night to dressy date night, swap out the sandals for a pair of fun cut out wedges. This takes the comfy look to chic and glam. For an added bonus swipe on a bold lip.
