WHAT TO WEAR: Date Night

Whether you are setting out on a nerves filled first date, or celebrating a romantic occasion with a long-term significant other, put your stylish foot forward and dress to impress! As many of you may know, finding the perfect outfit for the occasion can be a challenging task, but by keeping it simple and wearing a little black dress, or LBD for short, like this Fashionista, your outfit can be the least of your worries.

It turns out the LBD, a no-brainer for many occasions, is a must for a fancy date as well. What is more romantic and feminine than a classic LBD? It is one of fashion’s most iconic styles and not to mention a budget-savvy choice.

When heading out to a fancy date, keep in mind that your body shape and what you choose to wear with your LBD are important considerations when it comes to assembling an outfit. By choosing to wear a dress that is fitted above and flares from the waist to a fuller skirt, this Fashionista shows off her hourglass figure while finding a balance between conservative and sexy. The best way to impress is wearing a dress that will allow you to feel comfortable in your own skin. The same goes for shoes too, just because it is considered a fancy date does not mean heels are required! Always choose to wear shoes that you feel the most confident in.

Once you’ve found the ideal LBD for your figure and comfortable shoes, the next step is choosing the right accessories. How you accessorize your LBD not only says a lot about your style, but also about who you are as a person. It is a good idea to consider the messages you are sending when choosing the right details for the occasion. Wearing all black can be a tad intimidating at times but by adding color you will appear more friendly and approachable. For example, the built-in silver jeweled neckline, gold accessories and neutral handbag keep this look fun and flirty. Although choosing the right accessories is important, always remember the most appealing accessory we can wear on a date is a genuine smile and a positive attitude.

One Simple Change: Although a great outfit might not ensure a great date, the little black dress can be very versatile and can be worn almost anywhere. Bad date? Ditch the heels for a printed flat, let your hair down and hit the town with your girls.
