Ok so you have a date tonight. Obviously the first thing that comes to mind is…what do I wear? We struggle with this question quite often (well not that often by the amount of dates we go on). But seriously, whether you are going on a date, out to dinner with a friend, or have a special occasion, it can be hard to know what to wear and what is appropriate. Since there are so many unknowns, we say to always air on the conservative side. So if you are going out to dinner with your boyfriend’s parents, let’s not wear that dress you just got for Vegas.
What does conservative mean? Ankle length skirt? Turtle neck? No it just means to be mindful of your “assets” and your company. Pick something that shows off a part of you you love so you won’t regret wearing an outfit later. Also, pick something that won’t have and wardrobe malfunctions because this can get a little sticky if something does go wrong. Lauren’s look below is ideal for a family birthday dinner, drinks with friends, and a date. She picked a soft colored top which accentuated the parts of her body she wanted- her waist and bust. The glitzy necklace adds a nice touch and pulls together her diamond studs and silver rings, without overdoing it.
As for the pants, Lauren went with dark wash denim. If you aren’t sure how fancy the restaurant or event you are going to is, we usually like to wear a skirt or dark/black denim depending on the time of year. For slightly more casual occasions, dark wash denim is great because it can be dressed up or down.
Now comes the big question- what shoes do you wear? We live by the motto that if it isn’t comfortable, you aren’t going to be comfortable and it will show in your posture. So if you want to wear flats or a kitten heel, by all means go for it. Don’t ever think just because you are going on a date you need to wear 5 inch heels. For you tall girls out there, wearing heels sometimes makes you feel like the tallest person at the bar- more power to you! Rock those shoes if you want! The main point is, do what makes you feel the best about yourself.
