WHAT TO WEAR: Fancy Date Night

What to Wear

This year’s Met Gala left many fashion followers speechless. Top celebrities dressed in original designs and haute couture gowns inspired by the work of Charles James and his theme: Beyond Fashion. Fashionistas and Fashionistos worldwide each year soak up inspiration, and gain motivation to pull off such runway attire in the near future. I know that from watching the Met Gala, and seeing endless pictures flood all forms of social media is what made this Fashionista anxious to throw on her favorite dress for a fancy date night.

Aside from my immediate obsession when I spotted her very stylish and bright outfit, I just had to stop this Fashionista to snap a few shots. She looks as though she just came off the runway, and so can you. This Fashionista owns it in a kaleidoscope print shift dress. It is white woven with cool cap sleeves and a rounded neckline for comfort, elegance and modesty. As prints take over the runway and flood the aisles of many middle and high-end stores, this eye-catching and abstract psychedelic print is super cool and original, just like the celebrity Met Gala attire.

In order to keep the attention on the dress, this Fashionista wears suede, leather and fabric platform pumps. The touch of silver gives it some extra flare and sophistication. These pumps by Jessica Simpson are must-haves, and match with any dress. They are super comfortable, easy to walk in and give you a few inches in height. With height and style comes confidence, and confidence is key when it comes to impressing your date.

Speaking of impressing, how about this Fashionista’s gold accessories? Gold is the way to go, especially with this unique and colorful dress. She accessorizes her outfit by pairing a cable chain bracelet and a gold bangle from Forever 21 for the perfect combo. To complete the outfit, this Fashionista also carries a small, leather crossbody purse. It has a gold chain-link shoulder strap, and it is the perfect size to hold lipstick and other little necessities for a successful date night. Bulk up on arm candy this spring, and you can also make your outfit this much more noticeable.

With an outfit like this Fashionista’s, you will undoubtedly exude confidence and look noteworthy. Experimenting this season is definitely something you won’t regret, especially for a fancy date night. Wear something memorable, loud and colorful, or just try something new! Who knows, maybe that is your pass to a second date night with that special someone.

One Simple Change: In order to make this outfit suitable for a casual date night, take off the heels, and wear a simple pair of flats or sandals to dress it down a little bit. You can also take off the bracelets in order to keep the attention on the dress, and make the outfit much more casual.
