Am I the only one who tries to straddle the line between staying true to my style & not scaring the guy when I’m getting dressed for a date? Sometimes guys just don’t get it & while I can’t always blame them I’m still going to use a night out as an opportunity for sartorial fun. Rock a bustier crop or a cropped sweater with a full midi to let your personal style shine through & keep Mr. Right from making sly comments about your outfit all night. We’ve all been there, right?
What’s your favorite fashion forward date night look?
This week on DS we’re taking a little break from work wear & sticking to all things date night. From super casual in jean shorts to mini dresses out on town, we’ll hit it all! Have burning questions about how to keep your eyeliner from smudging in this DC heat or how to wear your new heels with those shorts? Make sure to tag any date night questions with hashtag #DSdatenight on social media & I’ll answer a handful in the next day’s post!
This past weekend I opted to keep it casual with an oversized sweater from H&M’s new Fall collection & a new pair of sh*t kickers that are currently under $50 & all I’ve been wearing after hours. I had no plan to travel beyond a comfy couch in this look so it was perfect for a casual night in. It’s a super easy look with a little edge, finished with a few favorite layering necklaces.
I always find it a little tricky to dress for a day that hosts multiple events so my easiest solution? Prepare for amazement: Black. Since the only place it’s Fall is on a few new collection racks & in my mind, I threw in a pair of bright pumps to take on a co-hosting gig, a Fall collection preview party, & a pretty aggressive work meeting. As a DS reader, you know me well enough to know that all black anything is my fail safe so for a day of hustling it was an obvious choice.
What’s your outfit of choice for fast-paced days where you’re dashing all over the city?
