With Valentine’s Day around the corner, some of you will be going on an extra special date with your significant other on February 14. Hopefully your beloved will be making dinner plans, so that you can focus on your head turning-outfit for the evening. As much as your ensemble will be about the destination, it should also be about your own personality.
Does your off-duty uniform consist of black tees and destroyed skinnies or leather leggings? Or, perhaps, you’re all about the glamour and favor metallics in every iteration (you basically consider gold and silver neutrals). Ahead, we break down four distinct date night styles—downtown-cool girl, sexy siren, glamazon, bohemian babe—and provide you with winning looks to wow this V-Day.
1. DOWNTOWN-COOL GIRL
Your closet is full of black skinnies, so for date night, you don't steer too far from what you're comfortable in; thus, black leather leggings are an evening-appropriate option. Pair them with a black silk camisole, a white heeled sandal, and a bejeweled ear cuff for an effortless look that will get you noticed.
The party starts wherever you are, so metallics are your go-to. Select a flirty fit-and-flare silhouette with graphic stripes for a look that's equal parts sweet and sexy. Marry with an unexpected ring and a stunning black pump with a studded heel.
3. Bohemian Babe
You live in dresses with a bohemian bent, and this one allows you to have your cake and eat it too, thanks to its flowy silhouette. A blush crossbody will let you go hands-free just in case you hit a karaoke bar post-dinner.
4. Sexy Siren
You know what works for you, and that's a black bodycon dress. You're detail-oriented, so you selected this one because of its cut-outs at the waist. A gold cuff and fringe party heels shows that you're sophisticated, but not afraid to have fun.
