A Surprisingly Simple Date Night Outfit

The Perfect Outfit for a Casual Summer Date

The Perfect Outfit for a Casual Summer Date

Simplicity goes a long way, especially when it comes to a casual summer date ensemble.

It might be an unpopular opinion – and I know I’ve mentioned it before – but my husband just loves when I wear jeans. Specifically skinny jeans. He prefers them over dresses and skirts and jumpsuits. The coincidental thing is, while I adore a good sundress during the summer, I also love a great pair of skinny jeans – especially for date night. There’s something to be said about the combo of high heels and skinnies with a nice blouse. It’s just a winner whether it’s for date night, drinks with friends, and like 90% of events.

Granted, you might be a little toasty at some points, if you’re in direct sunlight, but I certainly feel more confident in jeans than in shorts, so I don’t usually mind. Investing in a killer pair of high-waisted skinny jeans without any distressing was something on my fashion “bucket list” (so-to-speak) at the beginning of 2019. I already owned this pair of pants from Topshop, so I went ahead and snagged two more pairs – one in medium blue wash and one in black – so I could have a plethora of outfit options. I primarily wear the medium wash during the summer, and wanted to share how I style them for a casual summer night outfit!

I’m all for simplicity. Especially when it comes to planning an outfit for date night.

The last thing I want to do is have my husband waiting for hours while I throw a million pieces from my closet in a frenzy. This happens more often than I’d like to admit. When all else fails, it’s usually the typical “jeans and a nice blouse” option. Let me tell you something: there’s nothing wrong with that! I believe this combo was created just for the indecisive, like myself! What’s even better is if you own a black blouse and a pair of black heels. Then you’re set for the classiest version of “jeans and a nice top” that exists.

My outfit was casual, summer date night-ready the moment I reached for this black sleeveless blouse from Chicwish. This top has become one of my go-to’s over the past several weeks. I find myself wearing it so often, I’m considering purchasing it in another color. They offer it in a stunning lilac-pink shade that I’m in love with, as well as cream and white! It’s lined, with a slightly ruffled collar and v-neck that doesn’t drop too low. It’s lightweight and breathable, perfect for summer – and great for layering! This is definitely the perfect blouse to wear with a pair of skinny jeans and some comfy heels!

    A pair of great jeans with a cami and heels is one of my favorite date night looks. I love to get dressed up in pretty sundresses and rompers but have found that a pair of jeans and cute tank sometimes look the chicest! Love your outfit here, you’re rocking those jeans <3

    LOVE LOVE LOVE! My husband is actually the exact same way! He 100% prefers skinny jeans over a skirt or dress, though he appreciates those as well. This is such a cute and functional look!

    I love summer date nights, but sometimes they can be so hard to dress for! For one, it’s so hot outside, but if you end up somewhere that has the A/C blasting, you get cold! I think this is the perfect compromise for whether you’re outside or in for your activities!

    I don’t wear a lot of jeans in the summertime because it’s way too hot in Charlotte, but jeans and a blouse is always a go-to in the fall!
