From a blind date setup by your girlfriends, to an invite to be someone’s plus one at a wedding, dressing for a date can be tricky! Whatever occasion you’re dressing for, I’ve created the ultimate guide to dressing up for date night. Keep scrolling!
DRESS IT UP
As you may know from my Instagram stories, I rarely wear dresses. My daily uniform is denim, sneakers + a sweater. So, when it comes to a date, I almost always opt for a dress! There’s something about throwing on a dress that makes me feel super feminine and confident.
BRING A JACKET
I’m always, always, always COLD! And I hear the same from tons of my girlfriends. The solution?! A jacket! The fun [ and also stressful ] part of a date is that you never know how or where it’s going to go! If you end up sitting outside at dinner or walking by a breezy beach, you’ll be happy you brought a jacket. Plus, you won’t have to end up borrowing his jacket. Can I get a heck yeah for strong, independent ladies?! 🙂
KEEP IT COMFORTABLE
While dressing up for a date is super fun, it’s important to be comfortable in what you’re wearing. My biggest focus when dressing for comfort? SHOES. I always opt for comfortable footwear. You definitely don’t want to be hobbling around a dance floor or suffering through blisters while hangin’ with your man.
I’ve created combos that follow my three fail-safe rules for dressing for date night! Whatever the occasion, you’ll look and feel great in these looks.
THE WEDDING DATE
The only heels I have in my closet are by Schutz. I’m such a baby when it comes to painful high heels, and Schutz is one of the only brands I’ve found to make supportive pumps + platforms that I can wear all night long. Pair these with a minidress + metallic clutch and you’re reading to catch the bouquet or kill it in the photo booth!
I love the contrast of a super girly floral dress with the tougher silhouette of a moto jacket! Pair with sunnies and slip ons to drink bottomless mimosas all day long!
MEETING FOR DRINKS
Is it just me, or are over the knee boots so sexy and powerful! Every time I wear them I feel ready to conquer the world. Or a blind date. Whichever 🙂
