My husband and I have been married for almost 3 years, but we still take our date nights pretty seriously. You know that cheesy cliche “If you want to have a great marriage, never stop dating?” – well, it’s cheesy, but true. Whether you are going on a first date with a guy who makes your heart skip a beat, or out to dinner at your favorite restaurant with your husband of 20 years, it’s important to look your best. Because when you look great, you feel great, and you can focus on what really matters: that hottie sitting across the table from you!
I enlisted the help of celebrity stylist, Claudia Fowler, and her fabulous store Haven in Franklin, TN to put together some perfect date ensembles that any womanista can rock. The first frock is perfect for a night out for cocktails, an art opening, or a glammed-up event.
Start with a sexy, yet comfortable cocktail dress. You want the fit to be slimming, but not tight. This one from The Eternal hits all the right places for a figure-flattering, gorgeous fit and is available at Haven for $405.
Pair this printed dress with some layered necklaces for a glam element of texture. These necklaces are from French designer, Catherine Michiels. Her designs feature precious stones and lots of muted colors and texture. The blend of earthiness with fine jewelry is so gorgeous! Her jewelry is available at Haven and a few online retailers.
Add some “icing” to your garb with a bold cocktail ring and a pair of embellished, sexy heels. These heels are by House of Harlow 1960 and are available at Haven for $279.
Finish off the look by pulling your hair back in a sleek, low-slung bun and give your face a glow with bronzy, smoky eyes, peach cheek, and a neutral lip.
Whatever you choose to rock for your hot date, make sure you wear it with confidence! There is nothing sexier than a confident smile and a kind heart.
Happy dating, womanistas!
