I Figured Out a Capsule Wardrobe for Dating

I don’t think there’s anything that sets me up for date-night success like the right outfit—in part because it’s a key to feeling confident. And when it comes to date outfits, I have a pretty simple school of thinking: It’s all about coming off as put together but effortless. In my opinion, there’s nothing cooler than a woman who looks at ease in what she’s wearing. I usually don’t experiment with pieces I haven’t worn before, but instead opt for tried-and-true outfit formulas I know I’ll feel great wearing. Over the years, I’ve come up with a capsule wardrobe for dating that I know I can return to time and time again. It’s built with fun sundresses and sandals for the day, while nighttime dates include interesting tops paired with high-waisted jeans and crystal-embellished heels. Here, shop a capsule wardrobe you can rely on for your next date night.

For the day, I usually wear a fun sundress like this one from Réalisation.

At night, I'll usually opt for a little black dress or pair of high-waisted pants and a silky satin blouse.
