WHAT TO WEAR: Date Night

A new school year is upon us, and with that comes the hope of seeing fresh faces on campus and in class. While most are eager to meet new friends and bond over binge watching Grey’s Anatomy, many are equally as earnest to catch the eye of that cutie in chemistry class. If you’re anything like me (on the rare occasion that I get asked on a date), the thought of the first date outfit is almost as terrifying as the event itself. Stay calm, Fashionistas and Fashionistos because dressing for a night with a fly honey is nothing to sweat about.

Pick up this Fashionista’s flirty vibe with a simple tank top or crop top paired with a swingy skirt in a comfy fabric like cotton or chambray. Stay away from fabrics that are too stiff as it’s indeed possible to dress for comfort while still looking cute! Dress up your look with a pair of fun and flashy earrings, and if your date occasion allows, throw on a pair of casual wedges or booties.

Don’t shy away from playing up your eyes, but keep the rest of your makeup simple. You never want to add any more discomfort to a date than is necessary, so keep hair low-maintenance or natural (this means no Snooki poufs or over hair sprayed ringlets.)

One Simple Change: Easily take this date look from dinner with your S.O. to a girl’s night out with friends! Change out a flirty mini for your favorite pair of moto jeans, and throw on a classic leather jacket over your tank top. Swipe on a dark lipstick, grab your go-to bag and head out the door with your best gals!
