WHAT TO WEAR: Date Night

Oh, the first date. Is there anything more terrifying? Finding an outfit for dinner can be fairly simple. A little black dress or a tight skirt, perhaps? But, what happens when the cutie you’ve been crushing on asks you out to lunch or for coffee in-between classes? That can be a little more challenging. This Fashionista’s outfit is a slam dunk for a day date!

Her dress is loose, classy and flirty enough to wow her date. The length and fit of a dress can be very tricky when it comes to first impressions, so comfort is key. Sometimes, adding a simple bandeau, like the one in this look, can make you feel more secure. This dress could also be worn with wedges, but only make this crucial swap if you are very comfortable in them; there is nothing more embarrassing than tripping and stumbling around in front of your date. Keep in mind that flats and sandals can be just as fabulous as a pair of heels. If you’re comfortable in your outfit, you’ll be able to let your personality shine. Like they say- look good, feel good!

A daytime date is the perfect excuse to experiment with bright colors and pastels. Anyone can pull off black, but it takes a true Fashionista to be bold with color. This light blue dress is a perfect summer color and looks great against sun-kissed skin. Gold accessories complement any colorful outfit! To complete this look, she added a fabulous Michael Kors bag. With a simple outfit like this, the bigger the bag, the better!

One Simple Change: Take off your jewelry and throw your hair up to take this look from a coffee date to class. Casual dresses like this are great for a special event or simple enough to wear to class depending upon the addition or removal of certain accessories.
