The most important thing to remember when dressing for a date is to be comfortable. Don’t wear something too constricting so that you can’t breathe all night. Also, don’t change your style drastically so that your outfit doesn’t represent you. Here are ten cute outfits for any casual date night occasion.
The double layer dress with back buttons from Splendid is very flirty. This dress is one piece but looks like a solid t-shirt with a striped skirt. I tried this on and it is somewhat short but loose and flattering. It comes in coal and navy and sizes x-small to large. This would be good for a beach date or any summer date. It costs $121.00 on Splendid.com. Pair this with a pair of comfortable sandals like the Reef Classica 2 flip flop. The shoe costs $44.00 and comes in sizes 6-9. Buy them at swell.com.
It’s always good to bring a sweater on a date at night. The black wrap cardigan from Old Navy looks good with any bright colored tee or cami. It is thick and longer, almost like a sweater. Pair it with jean or slacks and you are good to go. The cozy cardigan costs $26.50. It comes in sizes X-small to XX-large. Finish this look off with the black ruffled peep-toe platform booties from Old Navy for the ultimate fashion statement. These boots have a four-inch heel so it would be best not to wear them if your date entails a lot of walking. Get them for $29.50 at Old Navy.
Jeans with Embroidered Blouse
Jeans pretty much look good with anything. Also, you can dress them up or down. Try a pair of jeans from American Eagle Outfitters. They are affordable and stylish. The artist jean in pure blue is a slightly worn jean with a flare leg and a low rise. They come in sizes 00-18 and cost $39.50. Pair your jeans with an embroidered top like the Angie flutter sleeve embroidered top from swell.com. This black shirt is dressy enough for a dinner date. It is on sale for $24.99. This look would look nice with wedge heels and simple jewelry.
Night on the town
Going out dancing or to a nicer diner, then try on this silk stunner. The cascading ruffle silk dress comes in a gorgeous blue color and a bright pink color. There is ruching at the waistband and a ruffled bib. It comes in sizes 00-18 in tall and petite too. Buy it for 89.50 at Ann Taylor Loft. Get a matching short sleeve cardigan sweater for $39.50. The short sleeve cardigan sweater is made from pima cotton and will keep you warm on a cool evening. Any black strappy low-heeled shoe would look nice with this outfit.
Leggings and boots
Leggings and boots are a great way to keep you warm at night. Try the Simply Vera Vera Wang Solid Leggings at Kohls. They are regularly $20.00 but often on sale. Right now they are $10.99. The leggings come in brown, gray or black and sizes small to x-large. Get a pair of Dirty Laundry Shoes, Roadhouse Rain Boots for inclement weather days. They cost $59.00 at Macys. I like this look with a tunic and dangling earrings.
Lace is always romantic for a date. Get the lovely lace top with lace inserts. It comes in teal, fuchsia, black or cream. It costs $68.00 and comes in sizes x-small to large. Purchase it at freepeople.com. Pair this with a pair of black capris, ballet flats and a delicate necklace.
Go for a picnic date; wear a pair of Women’s Button-Pocket Surplus Shorts. They come in neutral colors like black jack, dried grasses, rolled oats and hibernation. For 19.50, these come in sizes 00-20 at Old Navy. These shorts will look good with any neutral tee or tank. For shoes, try a t-strap sandal. The floral T-strap sandals come in a variety of florals and stripes. They are the perfect summer shoes. Get them in whole sizes 6-11 for $29.50 at Gap.
BananaRepublic.com puts together many looks so that the ensemble is right at your fingertips. I like the silk bowtie top and gathered skirt look. The top comes in papaya orange and soft purple. It has a cute bow at the collar. It comes in sizes x-small to x-large and costs $69.50. The straight skirt comes in black, coffee bean, indigo and tan. It costs $59.50. Pair this with a gold cuff and a high-heeled sandal and you are ready for any date.
Anthropologie is another store that puts looks together for you. I like the Blouse plus pant plus cardi outfit. It features the spilling ruffles cardigan for $98.00 along with the pallas athena tank for $68.00. The balsa carpenter pants reach below the knee but above the ankle and cost $88.00. All of these pieces are quite versatile so you could buy one or all. The whole look is very whimsical and romantic.
On hot summer days, make sure your clothing is light and comfortable. For a casual date, get the bright wipe out tank from Roxy. I like the Jade one with the black pocket. It costs $29.50 at Roxy.com. This shirt will look good with any loose boyfriend jean shorts and flip-flops.
Remember, your smile is your most important accessory.
