Date night dressing can be fraught with challenges. You want to look fabulous, but not like you tried too hard. Plus, you want to be prepared in case the mood strikes to head somewhere different.
This is where the timeless formula of jeans + cute blouse + leather jacket + heels comes in handy. It’s perfect for virtually all date night situations (that don’t call for a prescribed look, like, say, the opera). It’s the E = MC² of dressing for a night out.
Of course, the heels shouldn’t be too high (unless you’re brilliant at heels, which I am not), and the jeans should be flattering and somewhat dressy (no splotches from the time you painted your house, for instance), but these basically go without saying.
So we’re back to the formula (jeans + cute blouse + leather jacket + heels = great date night uniform). It’s a winner.
