WHAT TO WEAR: Date Night

After almost two years of an amazing relationship, I will never forget how much time I spent getting ready for the first date. Easily, I tore through half of my closet rejecting every outfit I deemed acceptable before this date. After careful scrutiny of my entire wardrobe lying on my bed in shambles, I put on the outfit I had on first and rushed out the door because I was now late. If only I had this Fashionista’s go-to, effortless date night look two years ago.

This Fashionista is wearing an ideal day-to-night look that she cannot only sport to her lecture, but also to her date. The blue and white striped T-shirt pops under the denim jacket and complements her khaki pants. For some subtle sparkle, she adds a statement necklace that accents her watch. With a powerhouse half-bun and her favorite fall boots, this Fashionista is ready to wow her date with her casual, trendy and confident style.

The most important part of any date is being yourself and this easy, fall fashion-inspired style is chic without seeming effortful. These timeless pieces are worth the investment as your next impulse purchase because they will be in style for many fashion seasons to come. Feel free to mix and match these essentials with your own personal style. If you are feeling a little girly, try pairing the striped top and denim jacket with a playful skirt. But no matter what you wear Fashionista/o, the best part of your outfit will be your killer personality. So go knock em’ dead, you got this.

One Simple Change: Playing in the pumpkin patch this weekend with your friends? Try making this outfit even more casual for your weekend activities by replacing the denim jacket with your favorite utility jacket for a more comfortable and trendy look.
