Here’s the situation. The guy you swoon over in your study group and crush on in the classroom finally asks you out! After the initial excitement wears off, a niggling thought crosses your mind and you begin to frantically wonder, what am I going to wear?
Don’t worry, though, I’ve done the hard work for you before you start to turn your wardrobe into a floor-drobe. I found this Fashionista, dressed in the perfect fancy date night outfit, for you to take inspiration from. She was dressed to impress on her way to dinner at a local restaurant.
In my opinion, wearing a dress or a nice top with a skirt will always look gorgeous and flirty on a fancy date. This Fashionista looked very classy in a knit and skater skirt combo. She highlighted her feminine figure by tucking her top into a super cute bouncy black high-waisted skirt. I loved that she chose a stunning bright red knit, which was the perfect colour for romance! The bright hue definitely gave her look a wow-effect.
Gold is always a winner when it is combined with black and red. I adored her chunky gold chain necklace, which made a statement but didn’t overpower her outfit. Her embroidered clutch added a gorgeous detail to her look and stood out. It was the only component of her outfit that wasn’t a block colour. When I asked her where she got it from, she said, with a smile, that she thrifted it from a market. I love a good vintage fashion find.
I say go for it, if you want to go all out for your fancy date night. Pop on your favourite pair of heels that you can walk in with confidence, of course! This Fashionista’s pair was a striking pair of black stilettos with sweet little ankle straps. A tip as you shop for heels: choose a pair with a peep-toe, like this Fashionista’s, which will make your legs look longer.
One Simple Change: This Fashionista could pair her skater skirt with a cropped patterned bustier, making this a fun look for a girl’s night out. She’d be ready to party until the morning with a swipe of bright lipstick!
