DATE NIGHT LOOKS FOR EVERY STAGE

DATE NIGHT LOOKS FOR EVERY STAGE

in Partnership With my Friends at Winners & Marshalls

Ah Valentine's Day, an occasion that elicits happiness, dread and even fear. Regardless of relationship status, most of us fall into one of two camps: go all out festivities or Netflix and Chill. Now that the day has come & gone, aside from a little added pressure, not too much changes – dates still happen every night, from first meetings to old ball & chains. Here are the pieces that work for all relationships:

Two of the sweetest accessories

Two of the sweetest accessories

These whimsical embellished shoes are perfect for a casual date where you want to show off your style cred without teetering in heels. Pair with an flirty dress as an unexpected accessory or with jeans to soften the look. The to-go cup may be the cutest way to enjoy a warm drink on a romantic walk.

This dress is all va va voom – perfect for a first date or to remind your partner that you still got it. If it feels a bit much, wear under a leather jacket or over a fitted turtleneck.

This designer column dress, found at Winners, is perfect for an extra special night out – like an anniversary or milestone moment. Of course, it works beautifully with nothing but a pair of heels but becomes a more casual option worn over a pair of trousers or jeans.
