When I think of a casual date night, I think of something spontaneous. Something fun and crazy like a night at an arcade, going for a long drive in the country or out to see the latest summer flick! The spontaneity of summer can be so romantic. It’s a time when you feel comfortable and laid back, while still having a starry-eyed night.
When planning for a casual date night you know you don’t want to get too dressed up. Hold the the heels, dresses and skirts for your formal date night—something casual calls for a comfortable yet feminine ensemble.
This Fashionista wore a thrifted cropped sweater, a pair of high-waisted shorts and a floral kimono. She completed her look with simple jewelry and a pair of Birkenstocks sandals. Her shorts and crop top combo made for a relaxed and casual look, while her kimono added a feminine touch that made the outfit embrace the romance of the date.
This same concept can be mimicked in other ways too. Instead of a floral kimona for the flirty aspect of the ensemble, throw on a floral cropped tank with a solid sweater and a pair of high-waisted shorts. You can even try changing it up and doing a floral or patterned pair of high-waisted shorts with a solid cropped top and sweater combination.
To truly complete the look, add a pop of color with a bright lipstick. This Fashionista chose to do a red lip, which totally tied the whole look together making it fun and flirty!
One Simple Change: If your casual date night ends with last minute tickets to a concert, have no fear—this outfit can be concert-ready in no time. Throw on a felt hat, and switch out your shorts for a pair of wide leg pants. These simple steps will transform your look into the perfect outfit to enjoy good music in.
