Top Tips For Putting a Date-Night Outfit Together

Whether it’s your first date or 100th date, wearing an outfit you are comfortable in is essential to enjoying your time and your company. Wouldn’t you rather be thinking about how great your date is instead of whether you chose the right dress to wear? Along with fit, the right dress, or any outfit you choose for a date, should be one that you feel confident wearing. Try your style on ahead of time, complete with shoes and accessories, so you are well-prepared and leave nothing to possibly go wrong. Consider how you'll wear your hair and be sure your jewelry works with your hairstyle and outfit all together. Make sure everything is clean, pressed properly, unmarked and polished.

Where your date is taking you will, of course, influence what you wear. These days casual is acceptable, even in some more upscale places, however, you will want to dress fashionably and appropriately for the venue or activity. Here are our recommendations for looks you can never go wrong in.

WEEKDAY DINNER & MOVIE

A pair of dressy denim jeans and top paired with stylish accessories creates an effortless look. Go for denim (blue or color), printed or patterned jeans, and embellished jeans. Silky blouses, colorful, soft knit tops and fine-gauge sweaters are perfect to pair with jean bottoms. Shoe style may depend upon the season and the sort of heel height you like; however, it is likely that flats, boots or heels will work if they complement the silhouette of your outfit.

SATURDAY NIGHT COCKTAILS

If there is any time to dust off your LBD, it would be for a Saturday night date. The swankier the place, the more daring you can go with your look. A casual cocktail may call for an easy T-shirt style or simple sheath dress, whereas for the newest hotspot, a lace, off-the-shoulder or ruffly dress would be in order.

MUSEUM & GALLERIES

A smart trouser and blazer combination is quite chic for exploring exhibits and galleries with your date, however, if you feel like expressing an artistic flare yourself and love boho looks, outfit yourself in something more carefree. Either way, be sure you are comfortable, and your shoes are well-broken in, so you don’t have to put the brakes on your browsing.
