What to wear on a Date Night

A friend recently asked me what to wear for a date night with her hubby. It's one of those things where you want to dress up a little more than you would on a day to day basis, but sometimes a datte night with your man is just going out for some coffee or a casual dinner. So how do you make it a bit more special while still keeping it casual? One of my favorite outfit styles to wear is all black. I typically accent an all black outfit with gold accessories. I love it because it could literally be a black t-shirt and black jeans and with the right accessories, you will look dressed up.

Date Night Outfit

Here I paired a pair of black jeans with a lace cutout top. If you like to wear heels like me, you can put on a pair of black booties, otherwise if you're more of a flats girl, a pair of ballet flats are perfect for this outfit. Finish the look off with a gold belt, a simple long gold chain necklace, cold hoops and a gold cuff bracelet and you're good to go! The best part is that each of these items individually will work in your closets for years to come. I love buying clothes that I can pair with multiple items that will give me years of use. Hmm now that I look at this outfit, I'm going to see what I have in my closet and wear something like this over the weekend!

I would top this outfit off with a bright manicure to offset the darkness of the outfit. Cult Nails Awakening would be perfect for this outfit. It keeps the outfit edgy and provides a pop of color. Since we're having free shipping through Saturday, now's the time to stock up on some great polishes, so if this one isn't part of your arsenal yet, head on over and grab it!
