WHAT TO WEAR: Date Night

Scoring a date is one thing; choosing the perfect outfit is another. After spying this look on the streets of downtown, it struck me as an ensemble that would be perfect for a date. This outfit is on trend and has many elements that are fashion-forward. The floral bodysuit, skater skirt and brown booties are all trending items that are paired together here to make one completely fashionable outfit.

This look works wonderfully for a date night for many reasons, so let’s start with the bodysuit. The floral pattern is cute and girly, which will essentially do most of the flirting for you. Think of this bodysuit as your wingman. Besides the pattern, it also has an open-back feature that adds a little sass to your overall look which will be sure to catch the attention of your date. The Brandy Melville skirt paired with this outfit is feminine and soft, and is an appropriate length. Length is essential when on a date and especially a first date because if your date introduces you to anyone important in his life, it is necessary to look presentable and tastefully dressed. Lastly, the booties from Forever 21 are the ideal shoe to pair with this outfit. They are not extremely casual, but not too dressy either. If you are unsure of where your date is taking you, these are a great option.

One Simple Change: One change that would make this look appropriate for a back to school outfit would be trading the skirt for a pair of high-waisted jeans. Since back to school season is generally cooler than summer months, jeans are a flawless choice. The dark floral bodysuit will complement fall colors nicely, and the booties will be life-savers if you have a long walk to class.
