What To Wear To A Date

 

 

 

 

It’s still Love Month and we sense a couple more dates coming. And so in honor of it, we have prepared a post on what you should probably wear to those dates. 

Dates are a celebration of the relationship you have with your date – a friend, colleague, your mom… In this case, the love of your life. They’re one of those moments that remind you of the magic of life. So we think it wouldn’t hurt if you put a little effort into making those dates a bit special. So here we go… 

 

 

 

HANNAH, BACHELOR OF SCIENCE IN BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION 


 

 

Currently addicted to: My cats, flowers, desserts, fashion

Binge-watches: Korean dramas, Friends, ‘90s chick flicks

I like being reminded of my high school years, so I watch a lot of films that bring me back to those days.

Comfort tracks: “Love” by Lana Del Rey, “How Would You Feel” by Ed Sheeran

Comfort activities: Making desserts, playing DOTA

Whenever I’m stuck, one of these will free me up.

Listens to a lot of: Pop, classical, trip-down-memory-lane music

Style principle: Blush and nude tones, elegance, neat, laces

From my hair to my toes, I like to exemplify what it means to be a lady. Fashion, for me, is an experience of art.

Style history: I honestly don't know why I love fashion. I have so much passion and respect for it from a young age. I remember being around 10 and watching shows and series about fashion. I had no idea what they were talking about, but I was mesmerized by what I saw.

Favorite style item: High-waist jeans

For a Night Out 

 

 

 

 

 

Date nights call for vampy colors and bolder spirits. 

As an alternative, you can squeeze into black skinnies and a black coat, but remember to combine different textures to avoid infusing some dullness into the whole look.

 

 

 

 For a Daytime Date

 

 

 

 For a daytime date look, opt for lighter tones – cross out pieces of dark shade.

Ballet flats are practically an alternative if you need to do a lot of walking.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Convey elegance with these three key essentials: a body-hugging dress, a coat, and a pair of lace-up heels (highly recommended tone: nude).

You can definitely experiment on color blocking, mixing two completely different colors together to create a striking contrast.

 

 

 

 

 

 

SAMEER, DOCTOR OF DENTAL MEDICINE

 

 

 

Country of origin: Jordan 

Listens to a lot of: The Weeknd, Bruno Mars

Comfort track: "The Lazy Song" by Bruno Mars

Binge-watches: The Vampire Diaries

Caught the fashion bug at age: 15

Favorite style item: Watch

Style principle: Find that style that defines you, that makes you different from others. Wear something you feel comfortable in and you must trust yourself to pull off an outfit. Also, confidence is extremely important in dressing up.

 

 

 For a Night Out

 

 

 

 

The leather jacket is an essential style piece.

It lends that edgy feel when incorporated into an outfit, and you can wear it with almost anything – from plain top to prints.

For a date night look, catch that edgy vibe with this key item.

 

 

 

  

 

 

 

For a Daytime Date

 

 

 

Look dapper in a pastel-colored coat or blazer over a plain white shirt or turtleneck.

Complete the number by going for light-toned jeans. You may also opt for chinos in darker shades. Don’t forget your slip-ons, brogues, or white sneakers.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

IMPORTANT NOTE: For an ultimate Valentine’s experience, don’t forget to listen to Ed Sheeran’s “How Would You Feel.”

We wish you the most amazing and most meaningful (post-) Valentine’s date ever.
