Alright guys, we’re tackling date night garb today on Sensible Stylista – I’ve been getting several emails regarding the topic so I figured it’d be a good subject to blog about. Before we get into it though, I want to emphasize that these are not first date outfit ideas (that’s an entirely different subject, and I’ll be addressing that another day). For today’s post, we’re gonna talk about ways you can spice up your outfit game so I hope you enjoy these tips!
1. Make a statement with kickass accessories
Don’t be afraid to go all out! It is night time after all. I treated my LBD as a neutral canvas and dressed it up with edgy pieces for fun (to see more photos, click here). If you’re afraid you’re gonna overdo it, just keep a few things in mind. Sidebar: I’m all about wearing whatever the hell you want so if YOU love your look, don’t second guess shit. I’m simply sharing tips with those of you who want a little extra help.
- If you’re wearing a bunch of vibrant colors together at once, don’t mix metals.
- Bold jewelry + simple outfits = optimal combination
- Wear ONE statement piece at a time.
- Take your bag + shoes into consideration when thinking about your accessory game.
2. Grow an inch or 5 with sky high heels.
Confession: I totally have a thing with height – I’ve always wanted to be super tall, but that didn’t quite work out for me. Luckily, I can “grow” as much as I want with fashion – yay for visual illusions.
First, pick out a killer maxi dress that’s sexy as hell but drags like nobody’s business. Then, pair it with 5″ ankle-strap heels for max comfort and security. The straps are very important because they’ll keep your shoes ON your feet. You won’t have to worry about them slipping off and (inevitably) making a fool out of yourself by falling flat on your face. Lastly, make sure your dress still grazes the ground a slight bit so no one sees how high your heels actually are! To see more snaps from this look, click here.
3. Rock sexy cut-outs.
I don’t know what it is, but there’s just something very sexy about showing unexpected bits of skin. Pass on the “traditional” plunge neckline + backless cut and experiment with something different to mix things up! Try wearing pieces with cutout waists, arms, and necklines.
