Outfits for When You Want to Kill It

Whether it’s nailing a first impression (professional, romantic, and everything in between) or knocking a reunion out of the park, the right outfit—the kind that keeps confidence levels soaring and any fidgeting or adjusting in check—can make all the difference. Here, three fail-proof outfits for some of life’s most decisive moments.

First Date

As far as first dates go, a casual setting—versus something over-the-top fancy—is somehow easier on the nerves. Similarly, a chill yet flattering t-shirt-and-jeans combo means you’ll feel 100% comfortable in your own skin.

High School Reunion

There’s more to this look-at-me dress than just a statement-making color. A strategically placed slit hits right below the shoulder blades to show off just a sliver of skin while the asymmetrical hemline is the ideal length for sky-high heels. Just add classic accessories.

Job Interview

Black pants, crisp white shirt, nude pumps—it seems like standard interview fare at first glance, but every individual piece is actually a cool riff on the classic that inspired it: A sporty stripe adorning the slacks, ruffled sleeves on the top, and a slick pop of black on the heels all stand out in the best possible way.
