4 Ways to Step Up Your
Date-Night Dressing Game
Getting dressed for a first date is as daunting as it is exciting, and even once you’ve been together forever, it doesn’t hurt to step it up every now and then. While an LBD perhaps a too-obvious choice, the slip dress, a sleek one-shoulder top, or leather leggings turn things up without seeming OTT. Here, our edit of feel-good looks no matter what stage of the relationship you’re in.
Keep it relatively casual, yet unforgettably chic: This Stella blouse has a modern—but wearable—shape, and the sheerness (with a delicate bra layered underneath) adds just a hint of the boudoir.
