Five Things To Consider For Date-night Dressing
Picking out the perfect outfit for a date can be an extremely daunting task, but choosing the right look can make a world of difference in how comfortable you feel throughout the night. Here are some fail-safe considerations that will not only charm your date, but will help you be a nonchalant dresser and get rid of those “you said 5 minutes half an hour ago…” situations.
At MFG we consider laser hair removal to be at par with a Birkin bag investment — the last thing you need is to have to worry about throwing on a jacket in this heat wave for a night out with your beau. But, then again, we’ve all faced those sticky situations where we’ve encountered dressing for a special occasion with the added stress of having missed that wax appointment. Thankfully we’ve grown wiser in our decisions over the years and a solution or two are in order. Full-sleeved cold shoulder tops are a great option at such testing times — they’re adequately breezy, cover what needs no showing and look super chic when teamed with your best denims along with a pretty pair of dangler earrings. If not cold shoulders, a full-sleeved crop top is a great option, bonus points if it has a low-cut back! Wear it with a pair of structured high-waisted trousers to show enough of your midriff and throw on some peep-toe platforms for good measure.
2.Dress to impress
When you’re working a room instead of your yoga class, it’s time to run the gamut of feminine sophistication. Sometimes that means going for a dressy look and no, we don’t mean decking yourself up in all that ruffles and frills have to offer off late. Take a softer yet fiercer approach instead — just look at dresses with delicate hints served up with a mix of power. These could easily translate into strappy detailing, high-slits, midi hemlines, one-shoulders and the works! Play it up with a red pout, slingback heels, a box clutch, some stud earrings and you’ll be well on your way to wow your date.
There are days when the idea of ‘dressing up’ just puts you in a fix — you’ve had a hard day and all you’d really like to do is wear a plain pair of jeans and a tee, because you’re just that lazy. Well, we can think of a better option that’s not only easy to get into, but doesn’t require colour coordination skill as it doesn’t need to be paired up with any other item of clothing — make way for the humble jumpsuit. Often overlooked as a casual outfit, the brilliant jumper delivers everything we want in one punch: bold colour or print, a relaxed fit and day-to-night versatility. Not to mention, it is the perfect playground to splash on a standout accessory or two. We suggest teaming it with a delicate cross-body bag, metallic wedges and some stacked bracelets.
4.Trot along freely
With IPL fever looming overhead, chances are your date-night might get sidelined landing you in a crowded bar with a never-ending waiting period for a table reservation. In situations like these don’t let lugging around heavy accessories and uncomfortable footwear put a damper on your date. Reach out for fuss-free bags and shoes that don’t leave your date nursing a heavy tote on his lap instead of a drink. Miniature sling bags are all the rage now; not only are they adorable little versions of their larger counterparts, they’re also roomy enough to fit all your essentials in. With long waiting lines for tables, the last thing you need is an arch-ache from standing in uncomfortable heels — this is where block-heeled mules come to the rescue. Luckily, they come in a range of colors and styles to shop from, so you needn’t worry about feeling mismatched and uncoordinated.
5.Don’t forget to bauble-up!
You’ve turned to the right source to help with your treasure quest, because if there is one thing we know at MFG, its jewellery. After browsing this season’s selection, we are swept off our feet by the layered necklaces, tassled details on earrings and stacked rings — not all of them at once though! Whether you want to add some pizzazz to a relaxed jumpsuit look or you need to up the ante on your delicate dress, we expect you’ll find that perfect jaw-dropping bauble below.
