Closing in on the end of another workweek (you’re so close), you and your main squeeze may have something planned for the weekend in this glorious fall weather. If you don’t, get to planning. Don’t let this jacket weather go to waste!
Whether pumpkin picking, cider sipping, laid-back movie night-ing, seasonal tasting at your favorite restaurant, or anything in between, these foolproof outfits will see you through. Not only are they comfortable, but you might also find that you have these pieces in your closet already—score! See below for date-night outfit inspiration for . . .
A Pumpkin Patch //
. . . or any outdoor activity! The main key here is practicality. Keep warm with a classic cable-knit sweater and a pair of your favorite jeans. A great pair of rugged boots, such as duck boots or wellies (plenty of cute options here!), will save your nicer booties from the mud and save you from wearing old sneakers, which tend to put a damper on any outfit. Finally, wrap up in a warm plaid scarf, throw on a backpack, and stash a thermos with hot apple cider. You’re ready to take in the autumn air.
Dinner Out //
Got an A-line dress? Wear it! Even better if in a feminine, festive plaid, but any A-line dress or skirt will look amazing on you because it’s the most universally flattering silhouette for any woman. Pumps in a comfy heel height (around two inches) will keep your feet from aching during a leisurely after-dinner stroll. A casual modern leather jacket staves off worries about being overdressed, and a solid scarf adds another necessary layer of warmth.
Movie Night //
When it comes to a simple movie night, whether in or out, comfort wins the heart in an outfit decision. Pull out those leggings (let’s be honest, they’re the equivalent to sweats, just more socially acceptable). Pair them with a cute jersey T-shirt dress, layer with a scarf, and have fun with colorful accessories, such as these darling merlot booties. You can even pattern play with stripes and florals!
