WHAT TO WEAR: Casual Date Night

What to Wear

Spring is in the air. Do you know what that means? It’s the season for casual date nights. Casual date nights are filled with bubbly conversations, simple foods and laid back activities. From outdoor concerts to late night movies, casual date nights spice up any drab weekday. Therefore, it is important to wear an impeccably flirty, stylish and relaxed outfit.

This Fashionista creates her casual date night look through her use of classic black to emphasize her modern accessories. The combination of her fitted V-neck sweater, and flowing mid-thigh skirt creates an innovative alternative to the “little black dress.” She dresses up this look by adding black tights. Tights are a simple way to emphasize the silhouette and add personality. If you want to uniquely craft this outfit swap out plain tights for patterned, colored or lace tights instead.

Next, with the beautiful and neutral outfit foundation, this Fashionista takes her look to the next level with simple accessories. By sporting this hunter green tote she adds an air of sophistication, style and spring. This tote is perfect for an on-the-go college girl because it can house books, lip-gloss or an extra sweater during a casual date night.

She is also wearing her favorite dual-purpose wedges. These provide comfort, couture and give her feet a break from the traditional date night pumps. Lastly, to complete this outfit she utilizes a powerful creamy-white statement necklace.  This piece ties the entire outfit together and draws attention to her beautiful features.

While on a college budget, it is important to remember that any look is achievable when paired with inspiration and innovation. By starting with a neutral base and incorporating simple statement pieces one can take any outfit from simple, to simple and chic. For your next casual date night remember to wear an outfit that is flirty, relaxed and makes you feel stunning.

One Simple Change:  To wear this outfit on a fancy date night ditch the wedges for a pair of pumps and add a pop of color with red lipstick. Black and red is a timeless combination.
