Date Night Inspiration

In honor of the sappiest holiday of the year, I thought I would share some outfit inspiration suitable for a casual night out–I’ve got you covered if  you and your Valentine plan to catch the latest blockbuster, grab a bite to eat or share drinks downtown.

For the ladies I suggest keeping it simple. This outfit is casual and comfortable, but has just enough detail to keep it fun. The bow and lace detail on the tank top are a great compliment to the Mary-Jane pumps.

Blazer: Kohls | LC Lauren Conrad
Tank Top: Forever 21
Jeans: Forever 21
Earrings: Target
Satchel: Target
Heels: Forever 21

The guys should keep things simple too. This outfit is super low-key, but the tailored denim keeps it from being too casual.

Cardigan: Target
V-Neck: Banana Republic
Jeans: Gap
Beanie: Target
Belt: Gap
Boots: Off Broadway Shoes

Both outfits were put together using inexpensive pieces from stores around town–there’s a good chance you may already have some of these articles of clothing in your closet. Even on a budget, its easy to look pulled together and stylish.

So, when you’re getting dressed for that hot date, keep a few things in mind. I recommend gravitating towards neutral colored items and adding in a pop of color to mix things up. If you’re going to wear jeans, make sure they are a good quality pair (trust me, it makes a difference.) When getting dressed for a date–whether its your first or you’ve been married for 20 years–you want to keep  things simple. I’m a firm believer in less is more. You don’t want to be uncomfortable or competing with your outfit for attention.

And if all else fails, you can always stick to black.

I’d love to know what you wore for your Valentine’s Day date night. Leave a comment and let me know!
