Oh, Dinner With Me?: Outfit Idea
The weather has been surprisingly nice these past few days but I'm eagerly awaiting the brisk autumn nights when it's cool enough to wear a sweater but not exactly cold enough to bust out the leather pants and fur jacket.
IMAGINE THIS SCENARIO.
Some boy (or girl) asks you out on a nice fancy dinner date. It's about...upper 60's, low 70's, cloudy, and a little windy. No rain, thank goodness.
There might be AC at the restaurant. Who knows.
So what exactly should you wear that would keep you toasty and goosebump-free while still making sure that you look classy, put together, and tastefully sexy?
1. Nothing says warm and casual like a knit sweater.
Q: Why, in this particular outfit, does it look dressier than usual?
A: The color. Because of the cooler and lighter tone grayish blue, this sweater gives off a chic feel.
2. A tight skirt shows off curves! You won't lose your figure, even if the sweater is a little slouchy or oversized.
Q: Why is it so unbearably long?
A: Remember, it may be a little cold outside so a longer skirt will cover more surface area and keep you warmer. Plus, there's something very appealing about "less is more".
3. Minimalist heels in a nude shade will elongate your legs.
Q: Why does it have to be a nude shade?
A: Harsh colors like black or bold colors like royal blue can visually cut off the length of your legs, since the appearance of the color is quite abrupt. A shoe that has a similar color to your skin (and this can be nude, tan, or dark brown) will give the illusion of longer legs. Skinny straps or heels or just minimalist shoes in general tend to have the same visual effect. SO DO NOT FEAR IF YOU THINK THE LONG SKIRT IS GOING TO SWALLOW YOUR LEGS UP.
4. Opt for a gold tone piece of jewelry to warm up the look.
Q: Why is it just one ring?
A: Keeping it simple is a good thing, especially on a date! It shows that you can be a little laidback and also, you won't look like you spent hours and hours overdressing. One piece of jewelry is enough, as long as it packs a punch, in a good way. Plus, the attention of the ring can help move it to the clutch you're holding.
For those of you who were wondering, I was inspired to do this post because of Thepersianbabe on Youtube. I loved how her super long calf-grazing sequin skirt looked on her and used that to try and style it in my own way.
How would you style the skirt? Did you like this outfit? Let me know! I love hearing your thoughts and reading all of your comments :)
