WHAT TO WEAR: Date Night

When I think of date night, I think of short skirts and bodycon dresses. But the stereotypical sexy outfit to impress the person you’re with is a thing of the past. I don’t know why anyone would want to force themselves to wear a typical date night outfit because it’s usually uncomfortable and overdone. The whole idea behind a date is to get some one-on-one time with the person you’re with, so it’s best to wear an ensemble that reflects your personality and unique personal expression.

This Fashionista exemplifies that idea. Her amazing outfit is perfect for a night on the town with a special someone, yet it isn’t your typical revealing dress or super short skirt. Instead of opting for an overdone date night outfit, she pairs a white bodysuit with black trousers featuring white detailing down the legs. This combination, although probably not your first choice for a date night outfit, is both pretty and alluring. Arguably better suited for dinner and coffee (no one likes their skirt to blow up in the wind), this combination also perfectly ties into the black and white trend of the spring/summer season.

A perfect outfit is nothing without perfect accessories, and this Fashionista does not disappoint. She wore her black and white ensemble with a pair of fabulous black platforms that are pretty, but still comfortable. She finished off her look with a gray envelope clutch and a matching gray watch, maintaining the muted color scheme of this overall look.

Date nights don’t have to be miserable because you’re (kind of) forced to wear something you don’t like. Instead of trying to wear something you’re not comfortable in, wear an outfit you feel confident and poised in. Tight dresses and short skirts are not your only option; this Fashionista proves that an unconventional date night outfit can actually be your best option. Plus, who doesn’t want to feel themselves for a fun date night on the town?

One Simple Change: If you have a date night with your girlfriends, add just a few more accessories to make this outfit perfect for a girl’s night out. Throw on a pair of statement earrings or even a fun jacket for a night guaranteed to make for more than a few #flawless Instagram photos with your gals.
