Date night Look Book

Hey everyone, happy belated Valentines day! Whether you spent the night in, went out with bae or had galentines, I hope you had a lovely time. In the spirit of Valentines day, I decided to put together a few date night looks, that will get you allllll the way together. Enjoy!

  1. Utility Vibes

I LOVE Utility pieces & I LOVE khaki, so I couldn’t help but bring this outfit together for this look book. This maxi skirt is a Missguided piece, from a couple of years ago that I will never give up! The skirt is so flattering. It cinches in your waist, accentuates your curves with its thick, figure hugging material. The split sits perfectly above your knee and I just can’t get enough of the universal shade of khaki. It works on EVERY skin tone. Unfortunately this exact skirt is discontinued, but I found a Khaki Faux Suede Split Front Midi Skirt, that I would also use for this outfit.

I paired this skirt with a Khaki One Shoulder Crop Top, from Femme Luxe, in khaki. I can’t get enough of one shoulder pieces lately, they bring instant glamour, while showing off your best feature: shoulders. I finished this look off, by adding someblack, lace up stiletto heels. I originally bought mine from Missguided, however they’re no longer in stock, so I have provided a link for a similar pair. I would also style this outfit with a pair of black barely there heelsor some Black Patent Perspex court shoes(which I’m loving right now).

2. Off the shoulder Staples:

Off the shoulder/bardot  pieces are ESSENTIAL for your wardrobe. Similarly, to the one shoulder pieces, they accnetuate a underrated feature: shoulders. Show that clavicale girl! witht this outfit, I went with a Cropped Folded Knitte Sweater in Beige, fro NA-KD. This cropped sweater, shows off your shoulders, is soft on the skin & brings a pair of simple black trousers to life. The material is quite thick, so its perfect for keeping you warm on an Autumn or Spring evening.  The neutral tone adds warmth to the outfit & will have heads turning! One thing I love about this outfit is the top is so versatile it can be paired with any style of trousers or skirt. I went with a pair of Black Wide Leg Trousers, from NA-KD. They’re perfect for elongating the silhouette & the high waist can be cinched in with a belt. I used a satin belt here, to cinch in my waist. I would also paired this cropped sweater with a pair of Black Leather Trousersor a Leather Skirt, if you wanted to go with a overall snatched look. Again, I finished this look with the adding someblack, lace up stiletto heelsto give me some extra height with these trousers. But this look pairs perfectly with some Black Patent Perspex court shoes.

Luxe Velvets:

Velvet is a fabric that can be used anywhere and will always be a popular trend. That’s why you can never go wrong with a velvet outfit for date night. This Black Velvet High Neck Bodycon Dressis everything. The high neckline elongates the neck and shoulders, the material at the waistline is elasticated so it cinches in the perfect places, accentuating your curves! With this dress, I would wearblack, lace up stiletto heels, like the ones in the picture. But depending on my mood, I might use a silver or gold laceup heel, to bring in some colour. In terms of accessorising, a Metallic Waist Belt, brings the whole look together.

Structured A-line’s :

My final look was this chequered, wool, A-line skirt, which I actually got from Primark for £8! These skirts are able to accentuate the waist line, whilst showing off the hips, giving an hourglass shape. They look so good on all body types, (I’m here for the inclusivity!). I paired it with a black roll neck (also from primark), black tights and some Chelsea Boots. To finish this look I would add a black biker jacket, to secure the casual yet cute vibe.
