Happy Monday, folks! This post is for all the tomboys out there who are not that crazy about playing dress up, or more rather dresses either. Not that I’m completely against dresses, but I’m just much more of a jeans/pants type of gal. I have been this way since I was a child. And I know a lot of other girls who’s style is similar - not prissy by any means. So how can you rock a casual date night look that doesn’t involve a dress? Continue reading to learn how leggings with a tweed coat can dazzle your date along with feeling completely like yourself and best of all, comfy!
I know, I know. Many of you are probably already doubting leggings with a simple fall/winter coat would be enough to sparkle up a look, especially one for date night. But I just don’t think when it comes to women’s style, that a dress should always be the answer. What if it’s your first date and you want a casual look that says you’re not trying too hard? As if you effortlessly put this outfit together and even though it’s not fancy it’s still chic af? We all want that wow factor for our dates, regardless if we’ve been married for years or are in a new relationship. Well, look no further with this flickering attraction double breasted tweed coat by Chicwish! Only $62 and a complete Chanel dupe (hey, I’m not mad about it), it’s my new favorite day-to-night outerwear.
This coat looks fantastic with just about anything. And it’s versatile enough to wear it at the office all day and then straight to your dinner date. I could wear this coat with jeans, a skirt of many different colors and perhaps other textures such as tweed or silk, it would also look amazing with wide legs, trousers and yes, even a dress. But given that your girl loves to mix certain styles together, I chose posh with rebel rocker chic, my go to for an overall confidence boost. Tell me you don’t feel more bad ass in leather, faux or pas.
I say a good way to add that extra sparkle to impressing your date is a great makeup look. Nothing to the extreme, (hey if that is your thing, no judgment) but a good eye-popping color effect to attract attention to certain features of your face, such as your lips, cheeks, eyes. The power of makeup is to accentuate/enhance your natural features. So in this look, since I loved the small tints of purple and pinks from the coat, I went for a fuchsia pinky makeup look. I think these kind of pinks are great for olive-tone skins and brown eyes. What do you guys think of the makeup here?
To balance the mixture of posh and rock, I went with over-the-knee black boots from one of my favorite UK shoe brands, EGO. And I love my new shoulder bag from Paul’s Boutique London. The different textures go well with the tweed and faux leather leggings, and what is also great is the handle of the bag, which has spiked detail studs along the shoulder area, which keeps with the edginess to this look. What do you guys think of this date night outfit? Too edgy for you? Would you wear it?
