Whether you’re planning to get all dolled up for Cupid’s big day or gearing up for future plans, we’ve pulled together three complete looks for wherever your sweetheart takes you. From the casual outing to the formal affair, consider this a foolproof guide to date night style for the lazy girl in all of us.
The Lazy Girl’s Guide to Casual Date Night
There’s nothing better than a fun, casual date spent mini-golfing, grabbing drinks or heading out to a game, but these types of dates can often be the most difficult to dress for. You want to look your best while exuding effortless fashion. Here, we’ve styled the ideal ensemble for a casual date.
These classic Levi’s distressed jeans ($98) are high-quality and comfortable, yet low-stress and perfect for welcoming spring. Pair them with this easy short-sleeved button-up ($39) and tan cardigan ($99.83) that offers both style and comfort. Finally, top it off with these Kendra Scott drop earrings ($70) and on-trend leopard print flats ($89.95) for an understated, yet fashion-forward look.
The Lazy Girl’s Guide to Semi-Dressy Date Night
If you’re planning for a dressier event, like a semi-formal dinner, first date, night on the town or concert, we’ve found some fantastic and flattering options. To us, the most important aspect of dressing for this type of date is comfort. Although we want to look polished and pulled-together, the very last thing we want to do is fiddle with our outfit throughout the evening. We’ve pulled together two versatile looks that will flatter any body type and remain comfortable regardless of your destination.
We’re loving this fun wrap dress ($179) for those with a more feminine taste, or this bright, vibrant jumpsuit ($69) for those who prefer funkier pieces. Pair either of them with these heeled mules ($148) that will last you through the entire year, and this crossbody bag ($148) that is both functional and on-trend. Add a touch of sparkle with this dainty initial necklace ($58) that is sure to become your go-to versatile and minimalist accessory.
The Lazy Girl’s Guide to Dressy Date Night
If your love is treating you to an upscale evening out, we’ve styled an outfit that is sure to impress. Wear this one to an elegant restaurant, the theater, a gala or your honey’s fancy work event. This best part about this look is that the dress can be interchanged with something you already have in your wardrobe. Accent your favorite little black dress with these fashionable pieces, and you’re good to go!
This red cocktail dress ($148) has the most flattering neckline, length and ruched detailing. Pair it with this sophisticated Tory Burch bangle ($128) and envelope clutch ($95) for just the right touch of glam. Finish off the look with these Sam Edelman heels, ($139.95), a great addition to any wardrobe, and this black coat ($220) that cuts at just the right length. There you have it — the perfect go-to look for any dressy affair!
