WHAT TO WEAR: Date Night

With Valentine’s Day coming up in a few short weeks, people are starting to prepare for the big day: romantic gestures are being planned, chocolates are being bought and cards are being sent out. If you happen to be one of the people going to dinner with your boyfriend/girlfriend on Valentine’s Day, you’re going to have to find the perfect outfit to wear out on your date. You don’t want to be too dressy for a casual dinner, but you also don’t want to look sloppy and give off the vibe that you don’t care about the date. Striking the perfect balance between the two ends of the spectrum will guarantee a double take from your lucky Valentine.

This Fashionista is date night ready in her fit and flare floral dress. One doesn’t usually associate floral patterns with cold February weather, but the dress’ thick fabric and black and white color scheme make it winter appropriate. The skater style of the piece makes it flirty and fun. It shows off this Fashionista’s figure and is still going to be comfortable at the end of the night.

Tights with a short dress like this are a must. Not only do they keep her legs warm in the cold and rainy weather, they also keep the dress from looking too springy. Her black flats blend in nicely with the tights she is wearing, elongating her legs and keeping the outfit cohesive. She added an exciting pop of color to her outfit with a purple scarf that can double as a shawl if the night gets especially chilly. This Fashionista opted for a black cardigan and a small black cross-body bag to finish off her Date Night look.

One Simple Change: Take this date night look to the perfect Interview outfit by simply swapping out the cardigan and purple scarf for a black blazer. Throw your hair back in a sleek ponytail and you’ll be a boss’ dream candidate.
