Don't we all just love being taken out for dinner, or to the movies or just for a nice picnic in the park? Well the latter is a bit difficult now as the weather is getting colder (depends on where you live of course). Nonetheless, it's a perfect excuse to get glammed up depending on where you're dining out. However, things are not always as easy as they seem. How many times have we all stood in front of a wardrode full of clothes thinking; "I have nothing to wear" or "What should I wear?". You then call your girlfriends up to plan that outfit. If that's you, you're sain! We all do it. I decided to put together 2 different looks to give you some ideas for that date you may have coming up.
LOOK 1 ~ COCKTAILS & DINNER
being taken to an upscale restaurant where jeans are forbidden, now
would be the time to get out that dress you've been waiting to wear. But
remember, you don't want to look like you've tried too hard or feel
uncomfortable in what you're wearing. The aim is to look elegant. Owning
a black dress or rather "LDB" would definitely come in handy as you can
pair it up with some fabulous heels. As we all know, wearing black
gives a slimmer outline and you are able to hide any bits you don't want
on display. You don't have to stick to black, just whatever colour you
are comfortable with. It doesn't matter how much it costs, but rather
how you look and feel in it.
With this look, I would wear gold jewellery but would keep it minimal
as the clutch and shoes are already quite striking. Hair and makeup can
be glam but not over the top. Now all that's left is for you to enjoy
LOOK 2 ~ CASUAL
Just because you're going for a casual look doesn't mean you should lose your sense of style. This look is for a more relaxed chilled out evening. I would wear this if going to the cinema or going for a meal where I wouldn't have to make too much of an effort.
The red scarf adds a pop of colour to the outfit. This look combined with simple makeup looks stylish, as if you haven't made that much of an effort (which you actually haven't). If you are one of those ladies who prefers heels over flats, that would also work.
What do you think of both looks?
