Outfits for a Day or Evening Date

3 Dec

Any day I get to dress up is a good day, so the days Matt and I decide to go on a date are some of my favorites. We are spending time together doing something fun and I get to find something cute to wear. I have two categories for dates. They fall into either daytime or evening.

Day Time Date

Coffee and a Movie Date

TopShop metallic top, $68, H&M denim skinny jeans, £20, ALDO above the knee boots, $56, Oasis tote hand bag, $70, Gold tone jewelry, $23, Yellow gold jewelry, $20, Michael Kors studded jewelry, $45, Forever21 zebra scarve, $17

For the daytime, I love dressing up sweaters when it is colder out. A slouchy comfy sweater can look dressed up by simply adding skinny jeans and boots. Since this is a date, a heel on the boot dresses this outfit up. The scarf is feminine but subtle. The jewelry in this outfit will definitely make a statement. I love the chain bracelet, multi-colored ring and the gem stud earrings. The girly accessories can make any boyish or slouchy sweater sexy in an understated way.

I would absolutely wear something like this to a movie (the comfy sweater is a great way to stay warm), lunch or just out to get coffee.

Evening Date

Evening Date

Dorothy Perkins long dress, £18, Dorothy Perkins nylon pantyhose, £6, Vince camuto boots, $93, Clutch bag, $35, Kate Spade long earrings, $68

I don’t wear dresses that often so anytime I get to bring one out makes the day a little more special in my eyes. I love the sheer long sleeves on this dress and the accents at the wrists. This is also a great dress because it’s fitted and will show off some leg. This outfit only needs subtle accessories with black ankle boots, seamed back pantyhose, a bad ass little clutch and great drop gem earrings. This would be great for a fancy dinner out or even to go out dancing.

Now I’m kind of in the mood to get dressed up. I think I will hold off this weekend, but get prepared I will be doing a post on holiday party outfits since it’s about that time of year. I would love to know that type of holiday parties you are going to and I can add those looks to my next post.

What type of holiday parties are you going to?

As of right now I will be going to a holiday masquerade (fancy) and possibly getting all done up for New Years.

    Thanks everyone! @plee7 I also recently discovered Dorothy Perkins and they have some great clothes. It’s good to hear that the actual clothing is good quality, I think I might actually buy something now.

    […] As promised I thought it would be a good idea to put together some holiday party outfit ideas, and this will be a 2 part series. Part two will focus on more fun night out outfits.
