'Nail' the look YOUR OUTFIT ESSENTIALS
The best way to avoid panic and save time when it comes to getting ready for date night is to cover all bases: are your heels too high? Have you taken time over which jacket, bag and earrings deserve an outing of their own that night? Remember, the aim of the game is to always bring the wow factor, whether you’re heading out on a blind date or taking to the town for the umpteenth time with the same person.
Stick to sequins
Sequins were not solely created for New Year’s Eve…just saying. Date night is the perfect excuse to really up the ante and make a statement with wonderful colours and textures, and this top couldn’t be more perfect.
Devil in the detail
It doesn’t get much more classic than black skinny jeans paired with a statement top, so why not opt for a pair with intricate and beautiful detailing such as these. Be sure to keep the rest of the outfit as muted as possible so as not to distract from the rest of your look.
Give it the boot
Mixing things up and testing the waters with new trends is a brilliant way to surprise your date, in the best possible way. Sock boots are one of the hottest trends right now, and pairing these with a darker dress or trousers is a brilliant way to ring the changes.
The edgier the better
Try the tassel
It’s also worth counting on beautifully bright jewellery to help raise the bar and a trend that doesn’t show any signs of slowing down anytime soon is the tassel earring. This brilliant shade of red is the ultimate piece to distract from an outfit that you might not have had time to spruce up.
Easy & breezy
If you know that your date is going to be more on the casual side, reach for a show-stopping top that can be paired easily with simple separates such as black jeans or tailored trousers. This champagne colour is unique - in the best possible way - and will go with pretty much everything in your wardrobe.
Bring the wow factor
If you’re celebrating a special occasion, you’re going to want to make your date’s jaw drop by opting for something that pulls out all the stops. And this, ladies, is the piece that’ll do that for you. Flattering for all body shapes and appropriate for all seasons, this truly is the perfect piece to wow your date.
