WHAT TO WEAR: Date Night

July 22nd, 2015 at 2:00am

My constant dilemma with date nights consists of dressing to impress while still being as comfortable as possible in the threads I have chosen, because most dates consist of sitting at restaurants, movie theaters or being active while you play a round or two of putt-putt.

I have to be honest by saying I am in love with this Fashionista’s ensemble. All of her pieces are basic but essential pieces every Fashionista should have in their wardrobe. This is what I mean when I say I love mixing staple pieces. And let’s not forget that jeans and a blouse are a very comfy go-to. Here our Fashionista paired her ripped boyfriend jeans with a draped white blouse. One thing to remember is when pairing a top and bottom that are looser fitting, make sure to accentuate your waistline. Here our Fashionista did this by tucking in her blouse in the front. To dress this look up, she threw on some show-stopping leg wrap high heels. To finish off her look she went with simple stud earrings and a matching handbag.

Boyfriend jeans started off a few years ago as a way too trendy item in every girl’s closet. Their birth as baggy, relaxed jeans totally opposite to the skinny had probably something to do with the ’80s mom’s jeans. Before we knew it, they were the new everyday jean to wear and we embraced them. And we wore them to death, as if we’ve had enough of our skinnies and other denim. Ever since that day, our obsession has turned turned the trendy trait of the boyfriend jeans into a staple quality. And with that I dare say it has moulded the boyfriend jeans styles and ways of wearing them in a more chic manner.

One Simple Change: This look is very versatile and can be worn for so many different occasions. Say you wanted to use this look again for a girl’s night out, because I too am an outfit repeater, Lizzie McGuire. Leave the big handbag at home and grab your handy-dandy cross-body bag. When you are out and about, it is easy to put down your purse and lose track of it. And who wants to carry that heavy thing all night anyways?
