Do you ever find yourself standing in front of the closet at a loss for what to wear? You’re not alone! Between PTA meetings and breakfast, lunch and dinner, sometimes it’s hard to concentrate on style. When it comes to date night, however, you want to both look and feel your best. Even if you don’t consider yourself a style savvy trendsetter, we can help you feel inspired and look your best! Below are three great outfit ideas and four must-have beauty looks to get inspired:
New Hair Color
Sometime you need a reason to break from your rut and indulge in a new hair color. Date night is the perfect occasion for debuting a new look. Whether you’ve been dying to go a shade lighter for summer or have been dreaming of ombre locks that you can wear in sexy beach waves, we’ve got an array of color ideas for all hair types here.
The Maxi Dress
A great maxi dress is an easy look for a casual night out; it can be dressed up with the right jewelry and hair. For a dinner under the stars at your favorite bistro, pair a pretty floral maxi dress with a soft, lace or crochet-style vest or cardigan, statement earrings and a great pair of sandals that are both pretty and comfortable.
Easy and Elegant: the Undone Updo
Date night is about having fun, so treat yourself to a hairstyle that’s easy to create and always looks great. Choose an “undone” updo to complement your favorite little black dress or as a way to elevate the look of your best denim paired with a silk blouse and fabulous pair of boots. Try a messy bun or even a simple braid off to the side. Don’t forget to set your hairstyle with Ion’s Mega Hold Freezing Spray. It’s quick-drying and will hold for hours.
The right jeans, the ones that fit your body and make you feel amazing, are one of the most versatile pieces in your closet. Pair those jeans with a flowy blouse for summer and sexy stilettos, or top the jeans with a sophisticated silk tank top in your signature color and a bold statement necklace.
Transition from your daytime look to a stunning date night look by amplifying your makeup look with a sultry lip color. If your daytime lip color leans more toward lighter pinks and natural tones, try a bolder lip color for a night out on the town. Go a few shades deeper; think merlot and deep wine. If you’re using a lip liner, don’t forget to blend it in thoroughly with the lip color for a kissable, unforgettable look.
Wear it White
The little black dress doesn’t always have to be your go-to when it’s date night. Ideal for spring and summer nights, white pants topped with a pretty floral or print top combines to form a look that’s feminine and fabulous. Linen, silk, cotton or even white denim are great options — just pick what looks and feels best for you.
A natural makeup look often works best for date night, especially when you’re rocking a great maxi dress or killer pair of jeans. Keep it simple and fresh with a palette of neutrals. Need some eye shadow tips? Check out our five top eye shadow blending tips here.
