From first dates to well-earned date night out, here's our guide on what to wear to our favorite date nights now!
It used to be that hoodies, sweats and all things active were a thing you'd wear in the privacy of your home or at the gym in your hood. Not anymore. Fast forward to the ending of 2018 and we're all about this new breed of super cool and cozy sweats and all things athleisure to get us ready for 2019 and beyond!
HUE HAD ME AT HELLO
Celebrating an anniversary is kind of a big deal. Ok, a really big deal. When you first met, your first kiss, wedding day or even that time you saw the most amazing play ever (sure, we'll count that as well), these are the milestones that stick with you forever. Show you're still in sync with easy striped separates ( a super cute dress for her and a cool zip-up and pant combo for him) that are perfect for snuggling.
HERE'S TO THE 9-TO-9
Looking this good all day ain't easy. And just because you're no longer on the clock, doesn't mean your look should fall in to a snooze-fest. Keep your look wide awake with matching pieces that not only impress those at work but the special one you see after, as well. A knit sweater and skirt set is the perfect replacement for a dress (you'll mix it up with other looks later) and a cupcake-hued pastel suit is a perfect blend of strong and sweet.
ICING ON THE WEDDING CAKE
Luxe. Smooth. So handsome. Yes, we're talkin' about you but we're also speaking on that smooth, velvety fabric that always seems to steal the show at every wedding (and just about every other occasion it makes an appearance at). Velvet makes you feel special—just like your plus one—because it's such a rich texture and adds gorgeous depth to the color. Pair with sleek pants that are perfectly tailored (too short is high-water territory and too long is sloppy—right at the ankle is the sweet spot).
IN THE STYLE GAME
You're there to cheer on your team, eat popcorn and enjoy the crowd. Sure, all true but you're also there to steal quick glances, laugh it up and hopefully get a smooch on that kiss cam. Be camera ready in mixed textures that feel polished enough for a floor seat appearance but laid-back so it doesn't look like you tried too hard. Velvet and feathers (yes, you can wear it to a sporting event) feel like fresh players. Mixed with denim and sporty extras, you have a look that's a total win-win.
MUSIC TO MY GEAR
For a high-octane night filled with good tunes, great vibes and even better company think of a casual cool fit that shows you're a pulled together style-queen. Go for a rockin' leather jacket and graphic tee that perfectly fits the evening's mood (bonus points if it's a nod to the artist you've come to see). And how can you go wrong with dark denim? It's sleek, refined and polished. A cute carry-all and fresh kicks top off an easy look.
BABY, IT'S STILL COLD OUTSIDE
We know, we know...you're here to hit the slopes and take on big-bad trails but there's nothing wrong with looking good too. It. Is. Freezing. We know you want to show off your moves and best threads, that's why it's important to have an amazing coat because yeah, you're gonna be livin' in it. A cool (but we mean warm) puffer is the way to stay toasty throughout all events. Plus, you can add some of your personality: bold or laid-back. And do we need to say it? Pair it with denim!
Sometimes you feel like staying in, laying back and vegging out with your bae. Get ready to binge-watch all your faves but let's keep it 100, you're also going to steal a few kisses and cuddles. So, skimp on a few layers, not in the style department. Slip on a lacy robe, it keeps everything under wraps but still oh-so-romantic. And for a little surprise, try red-hot undies that's a complete showstopper.
