Date-Night Looks

By Raehana Anwar

With the arrival of Valentine’s day comes the stress and chaos of prepping for the perfect date.  Whether you’re going to dinner with your S.O. or having a night out with the girls, it can be tricky to find the right look for the occasion.  With this in mind, I’ve put together four different outfits for four of the most common date locations I could think of, hopefully easing your worries and providing some inspiration for your perfect Valentine’s Day look.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Movies

The movies has always been the most cliche date spot, but also the most casual. With dark lighting and comfy seating, the movie theater has the most chill and laid back atmosphere, which isn’t a bad thing at all. You can easily pull off a comfortable yet cute look with a pair of sweatpants (or any other comfy pants), slip-ons, and a long-sleeved shirt.

Dinner

Dinner is a bit more formal than a movie, which means, sadly, sweatpants won’t make the cut. Depending on how fancy the restaurant is can determine how dressed up you want to get, but a typical dinner can go along the lines of jeans, boots, and a sweater or long-sleeved shirt.

Coffee/Park

A coffee date or an afternoon in the park are both casual and easy options that call for more laid back outfits. You can pair leggings with an oversized shirt and a denim jacket layered on top for an effortless put together look. Slip on some sneakers and you’re good to go.

Concert/Party

A concert or party would be the most dressed up look out of the four. My go-to party look is a black skirt paired with a long-sleeved shirt. You can dress it up with heels or keep it comfortable with sneakers. to make a simple outfit stand out more, add some accessories. Layer some necklaces or add on earrings and the look’s complete.
