WHAT TO WEAR: Date Night

Getting dressed up for date night is definitely not just for us girls! The fun and excitement in choosing your outfit is also shared by our fellow Fashionistos. What do you wear if your plans are to go ice skating? Dinner at a fancier place? Maybe you’re just going to that local burger joint you heard is supposed to be incredible! Whether you’re a guy who is looking to impress your girlfriend or boyfriend, deciding on what to wear for a night out can be a challenge. Let’s not forget the nerves you might also have!

Today’s Fashionisto shows us how he dresses for date night by taking advantage of the winter season and the colors that come along with it. He wears a pair of burgundy chino pants and keeps everything else all black. Burgundy is perfect for this season and still gives that holiday vibe without screaming Christmas like a bright red might (not to mention burgundy is a romantic shade). The slimmer fit creates a smart, trendy look to contrast the more classic leather jacket he wears. Black leather is a great way to play with textures when you’re wearing an outfit that consists of a lot of this same color. The black tinted zippers on this Fashionisto’s jacket actually help tone down the edginess of the piece and make it more appropriate for everyday wear; hard silver metal would make it more biker-esque. For shoes, he keeps it classy with a pair of oxfords in a slightly pointier toe. Pointed or almond toed shoes are a way to show off some personality and give a fresh take on a classic silhouette.

While you definitely want to dress to impress your date, don’t feel pressured to wear anything if you feel uncomfortable in it. At the end of the day, you really want to wear what is going to make you feel confident. When you look good, you feel good, and you’ll have an amazing night with your special someone.
