Dressing up for date night is a ritual I will always enjoy. Wearing something special and taking a little extra time with hair and makeup makes the evening even more fun. I appreciate items that are simple and elegant, as well as comfortable and flattering. If a piece offers the option of being dressed up or down, and the color makes me smile, it might earn a place of honor in my wardrobe.
On a recent date night, I wore this periwinkle Clara Sunwoo top, a gift from My Fair Lady, here with the basic navy pants. The color and style of this top make it a keeper. I can wear it with white pants and sandals or with black pants and heels, with a dramatic necklace or a colorful scarf. The uneven hemline and side slits provide movement and comfort without being overwhelming.
The bag is several years old from Express. The bracelet was a gift from Mr. Mickey. The shoes are by INC International Concepts, created for Macy’s last year. The Ultimate style Shapeez.com bras always provide a smooth foundation under soft knits. My lipstick color is this one by Beautycounter.
A few well-chosen basics will allow you to create appropriate, attractive looks for many events. I hope you have enjoyed this series.
