This week’s guest blogger, Kalyca Romeo of Romeostyle.com, is one seriously talented lady. After graduating from the Fashion Institute for Technology eight years ago, New York-based fashion insider has worked as a buyer, a designer, and a particularly savvy personal stylist. We’re loving her tips on crafting the perfect date night outfit, rocking the latest white styles, and test-driving fall/winter makeup looks right now.
On a first date, you don’t want to look like you’ve spent the entire day getting ready, but you do want to look gorgeous andeffortless all at the same time. What has worked for me has always been the head-to-toe outfits that make me feel confident, comfortable, and sexy—but that have a twist. Here are two first date fashion ideas that work well during the summer months.
Idea #1: A floral dress or skirt has been an encouraged first-date outfit for as long as I can remember. Switch things up a bit by trying something a little different, like a pair of floral print jeans or pants. Beauty tip: don’t forget to bring a lip gloss like a stila Lip Glaze or Clark’s Botanicals’ Ultra Rich Lip Tint.
Idea #2: There’s an inclination to show some leg on the first date, which is fine, but nothing looks worse than a woman pulling and tugging at her mini all night. A more comfortable option that’s still very alluring is dressing up a pair of shorts. Combine a neutral pair with a flowy blouse and a standout accessory for an eye-catching yet sophisticated look. There’s also the jumpsuit route. Find one that flatters your body and not only is it easy, it will also help you keep your cool on a hot summer night. Take the style from casual to classy by pairing it with urbane platforms and some killer dangly earrings. Beauty tip: exposed skin always looks better when it’s a little glowy. Invest in products that will make you beam, in a good way, like Vapour Organic Beauty’s Aura Multi-Use Blush and Comodynes Self-Tanning Towelettes.
