Whether it’s your first date or 50th, we all want to dress to impress. However, when you don’t know what to expect out of a date, getting dressed can be the ultimate struggle. Of course you don’t want to show up in your jogging clothes, but getting dolled up in an evening gown might be taking it too far. What you need is something that says cool, calm and collected, much like this Fashionista I found strolling past St. Paul’s Cathedral headed out for an evening of laughter and drinks with that special someone.
Her outfit is the perfect mix for a causal date night, as it is girly and sophisticated, but laidback and relaxed. Tight skinny jeans look great when worn with soft leather booties. Lightweight and comfortable, they take her straight from a day out with friends right to her date. Her hot pink Topshop blouse definitely adds some sass and flirtiness to the outfit. It is simple and easy, and she looks easygoing and fun.
My eye was instantly drawn to her oversized gold necklace. I love the intricate lines and how it makes her shirt pop and takes the outfit up a notch. It dresses up any shirt, from sweaters to band T-shirts. She ties the look together with a sleek charcoal gray blazer. The great thing about this blazer is that it is perfect for all types of dates. She can wear it for drinks after works, a stroll in the park or a late night movie. The white bag she carries is crisp and clean, as it doesn’t distract from her outfit and keeps the theme of simplicity going.
One Simple Change: Swap the booties for heels, add a black pencil skirt and you’re internship ready for a day at the office.
