WHAT TO WEAR: Casual Date Night

What to Wear

So, he has finally asked you out on a date! That boy in your Psych class that you have been silently staring at since freshman year…now the real predicament is what should you wear? After carefully picking every outfit you knew you would want him to see you in, this outfit should be no exception. Since it’s the first date, he is going to want to keep it pretty casual, as should you.

Since you can never really be one hundred percent sure of what is on your casual date’s itinerary, it’s always in your best interest to wear a comfortable pair of shoes! Let’s face it, your shoes don’t only make or break your outfit, they also make or break your mood! Cranky is never cute on a date, so do yourself a favor and suit up with an adorable pair of flats or booties, like either of these pairs from Tory Burch and ALDO.

She also chooses a sexy top that exudes class! It’s gorgeous because it is tasteful, but sultry at the same time. This Fashionista bares just enough skin for a casual date without looking like she is trying too hard. Try either one of these sheer top options from Free People or Topshop to rock your casual first date.

She tops off this casual outfit with a leather jacket, which matches perfectly and is a great piece to have on a date. The leather jacket creates an edgy look that contrasts the ultra feminine top to create a powerhouse combination. These leather jackets from Nordstrom and Forever 21 are great for dates during these fall months; you never know when a chill is going to breeze though.

She minimally accessorizes this understated sexy outfit with a midi ring and a Michael Kors watch.

One Simple Change: Switch the black pants for a black high-waisted skirt and tuck in the sheer top to transition this look from a casual date night to concert wear!
