WHAT TO WEAR: Fancy Date Night

What to Wear

Finals are in the rearview mirror, and it is time to celebrate a semesters worth of hard work. What better way to celebrate than with friends or a significant other that suffered right along with you through the grueling week of finals? Before you head home for the summer, take the opportunity to celebrate your successes, properly say goodbye to a pal and go on a formal date.

Formal dates often cause a series of unrest and nerves prior to being picked up by your date, but by keeping it simple like this Fashionista, your attire can be the least of your worries. I spotted this chic and elegant Fashionista keeping it cool before her date and donning a simple navy dress with an intricate back design.

When you are going on a formal date, there is no better time to show off your favorite dress you rarely have an occasion to wear. Personally, I jump at any opportunity to slip into my go-to dress. If you don’t have a go-to dress per say, then here are a few tips to choosing one before your next big event. First and foremost, keep it simple. You want to choose a timeless dress that will be appropriate for many occasions, like this one. But next, be sure it is comfortable. You don’t want an extremely short dress nor do you want an extremely tight one. This Fashionista’s dress is simple and skims her collarbone with a flattering fit.

One Simple Change: If your date calls and can’t get reservations at the fancy restaurant you planned on dining at, swap your pumps for a pair of sandals and grab a jean jacket and you are ready for a casual date night.
