WHAT TO WEAR: Date Night

As the weather slowly but surely creeps into the 50’s, winter jackets are being shed all over campus as everyone embraces the welcome change. As campus weather heats up, so does campus life: with pledge season drawing to a close, and spring socials right around the corner, there’s everything from networking events to date nights to dress for.

Early spring date nights are a complicated outfit affair. Looking cute without overdoing it, while still protecting yourself against the nighttime chill is no less than a fashion feat. Luckily, we have this Fashionista’s colorful outfit to show us how to do it.

This Fashionista plays with everything from colors to textures to lengths to pull off this classy and casual ensemble. White outfits can be a complicated trend to pull off, but her pieces’ off-white hue and playful textures keep this Fashionista’s outfit fresh instead of bridal. A pop of color here and there remind us of the flowers now starting to bloom out of the last snow.

While our Fashionista certainly dares to bare those legs, she knows how to keep sexy from going scandalous. Pairing a short skirt with a higher cut top and a sweater shows your date that you’re bold, without showing too much. Her thigh-high boots are the perfect accessory, at once drawing attention to her skirt without leaving too much leg.

One Simple Change: Swap out this Fashionista’s simple jersey top and sweater for something sparklier, and get ready to dish about your date at your next girl’s night out!
