Tonight I'm missing bunco (insert here a moment of silence for me please...this momma does NOT like missing her bunco night), for a double date with one of our great friends we've known forever, who just so happens to be recently engaged! This evening we'll head out to Fixe in Austin for dinner and in planning for it, I got to thinking of what the perfect date night entails....so here are my thoughts on the matter. No hard and fast rules, but some general guidelines to make your date night looks extra "smart"!
>>>Date Night Outfit VIBE >>> A little bit Flirty and a little bit Spicy
Ex: This lace top brings that flirty, girly vibe, while the metallic heels bring the bit of spice...as does the red lipstick.
>>>Date Night Outfit Essentials >>> Heels, a simple low-maintenance clutch, sophisticated jacket/sweater.
>>> The clutch is the ideal accessory as it's so multi-purpose. It can hold any necessities (who wants to bring along their big ol' mom tote for date night?), can add a pop of color (hello RED!), and gives your hands something to do!
>>> Heels and a sophisticated jacket round out any outfit...both upping the dressiness factor and makes an outfit look well thought-out and on-purpose. Style Tip: Contrast a frilly detail (like the lace top) with a structured jacket and masculine sunnies for the ideal balance.
