WHAT TO WEAR: Casual Date Night

What to Wear

In the college dating world, an actual date is rare to come by. While we all want Ryan Gosling to hang off of a ferris wheel and beg for us to go out with him, this just doesn’t happen. However, whenever you do get that first or second date, it’s important to be dressed just right. This isn’t the right time for those daisy dukes or the six inch heels. How you dress for this occasion tells your special date a lot about you!

This Fashionista’s outfit tells her date that she knows how to have fun. While her blazer has a lot of structure, the bright mint color and rolled up sleeves with exposed print give it a more laid back but fun look. The graphic tiger T-shirt underneath humbly shows her wild side. A graphic T-shirt that shows an interest of yours (like a T-shirt of New York City or a quote) can spark a conversation! Her fitted black jeans are perfect for a casual date because they make her legs look long and slim while still being casual. This Fashionista’s two-toned neutral clutch is the perfect size to include everything you might need on a casual date such as mints, lipgloss and a small wallet. The neutral colors of the clutch help to keep the attention on to her outfit. Her fun accessories are the perfect touch to give her date a look into her personality. While her Fossil watch says “put together,” her Pandora bracelet says “classy.” Her handmade shell bracelet shows that she is crafty and her delicate bracelet from Barcelona tells her date that she is a world traveler. I love her detailed elephant earrings because it draws attention to her face—exactly where the attention should be! One thing that shouldn’t be forgotten in the nerves of a date is a fresh coat of paint on your nails—chipped nail polish is not a flattering look.

Follow in this Fashionista’s step and I promise you won’t look like a fool, but your date will be a fool for you!

One Simple Change: When talking about your date afterward on your girls’ night out, put on a pair of leather shorts and finally break out those six inch heels!
