WHAT TO WEAR: Casual Date Night

From the Editor, What to Wear

Finals are (finally) over. That means no more stress, studying and (more importantly) sweatpants. It is time to celebrate another school year in the books by spending a night on the town with your sweetheart.

After exhausting yourself over the last few weeks, the last thing you are going to want to do is have to spend hours getting dolled up for a fancy rendezvous. But a casual date night look doesn’t mean sloppy.

Take a look at this Fashionista. Her look is spot-on for an evening of dining al fresco, catching a movie or perhaps even just a jaunt to your local ice cream shop. This Fashionista’s chambray shift dress is an ultimate summer staple. It is chic and classic. The shorter length is flirty and feminine—the perfect mood for a date night. I like how she kept the ensemble monochromatic by opting for a navy sweater. The fluffy knit is cozy and fun. The sweater also complements the clean lines of the dress.

The light-colored Chelsea boots are the perfect cherry on top of this simple but statement making look. People usually store their boots the second the weather gets a little warmer. But this Fashionista knows how to maximize her wardrobe. The light beige color of her boots almost blend into her pale skin tone. The result? Longer legs! And who doesn’t want longer legs (especially when dressing for a date night)?

So take the money you got from selling your books back and put it to a fun night with your someone special. Throw together a casual yet flirt look like this Fashionista and have the best night ever.
