Styling Tips: Jolyn Pulls Together 4 Hot Date Looks
Dating is stressful enough without having to worry about the infamous question “What do I wear?” And if you’re anything like my friends, that notorious question is usually followed by “I have nothing to wear.” Fret not, however, my fellow fashionistas—this post will give you appropriate options for more than a few date occasions!
THE VA-VA-VOOM SEXY DATE>> This old school Hollywood glam look is perfect for any ultra-posh event, and jaws will be dropping as the look is seriously sexy but still very classy and sophisticated. A peplum top is perfect when paired with a fitted bottom. This super-stretchy pencil skirt paired with the cap sleeve sequin top makes the waist look super tiny (not to mention sparkly). Red shoes and lips give this look the sultry glamour factor it needs to be completed, and as always, don’t overdo it! The sequins and red accents teamed with a tote (that can also transform into a clutch) and some simple stud earrings are enough. Less is more in a look that’s this dazzling. After all, your date will already have something beautiful to look at.
THE WEDDING DATE>> What to wear to a wedding…besides not wearing white, this outfit decision doesn’t come with a guidebook. Ask your date a few questions about the type of wedding it is. Indoor? Outdoor? Type of venue? If you get an answer or two out of your lovely chap, then consider yourself lucky. And if not, this dress is the perfect universal wedding look. The slight hi-lo hem gets great movement, and you can pull off an innocent-yet-seductive vibe. Gold accessories look amazing with jewel tones, so add to the sophistication of this emerald dress with a few gilded touches. There’s a fine line, ladies, between not upstaging the bride and still looking oh-so-fabuloso. This look is sure to keep your date’s eyes only on you without getting any evil eyes from the females around you.

THE LUNCH DATE, COFFEE DATE, I-WOKE-UP-LOOKING-LIKE-THIS DATE>> I love the combination of purple and white, and this pleated purple top has a flattering fit on almost anyone. While you may be scratching your heads as to how white denim could be just as flattering, it’s a good idea to wear a skinny style with heels and a blousy top to create both height and the illusion of an hourglass figure, as the flare of the top creates curves that we’re all not so lucky to have. This outfit looks equally amazing with silver or gold accessories, and I’m a HUGE fan right now of duster earrings—that way, when you do a sexy hair flip (highly recommended in a subtle way on ANY date), your date will be mesmerized by your lustrous and glimmering locks.
GET THE LOOK>> Allover Pleated Cami, Signature Stretch Skinny Jean, Three Strand Crystal Duster Earring, Set of 2 Colorblock Stretch Bracelets (196860, $29, currently unavailable on bebe.com, but check your local bebe store), Elsa Metallic Peep Toe Sandal
THE SPORTY DATE>> Recently, a girlfriend of mine got asked on a first date. But here’s the twist: the date involved going on a hike with the prospective couple’s two pooches. While I give the guy credit for suggesting an activity involving fitness and their already-established love for their dogs, complications arise when you try to be sporty and sexy (and not sweaty). Thank goodness for BEBE SPORT! The pieces are not only functional but extremely flattering. Plus, they coordinate, which makes putting together the perfect sporty outfit a cinch. The newest collection features pops of neon pink that are sure to keep his attention primarily on you and not his four-legged best bud.
