Picture this: You’ve just been asked out by the cute guy you see at the gym, and in the midst of your excitement, you realize that you have nothing to wear. It’s an awful feeling that can send you into a tailspin. Talking to your friends doesn’t make you feel any better. After all, they say that you have plenty of outfits. But you know the truth. Wearing that last season’s Nanette Lepore fit and flare you have hanging in your closet doesn’t have that wow factor it once did.
Luckily, there’s a solution. You can look your best without breaking the bank. Here are some summer options that will make you feel like a million bucks without spending it:
1) Colorblock dress
Colorblock dresses are perfect for summer, as well as cute and flirty. Look for one that hits above the knee and has some added texture. Add some fun bangles and drop earrings, and you’ll be guaranteed a second date before your first one is even over.
2) White jeans
White jeans are perfect for an outing with that guy you’ve been eyeing. Pair with a nautical-inspired top and you’ve got a getup that is preppy and cute as can be. For that extra touch of classic glamor, add this gorgeous Franco Ferre Cream Leather Italian Handbag.
3) Lace shorts
Love wearing shorts, but haven’t found a pair that is date-appropriate? Search for ones that are made of lace or have lace detailing. They’re sweet without looking too fluffy. Wear them with a boho-inspired top. Of course, you’ll need a pair of designer shoes to complete this outfit. At Dellamoda.com, we love these Christian Louboutin Platform Wedge Organic Lace-Up Sandals.
