Outfit Post – Styling Animal Print

*Affiliate links.

I find animal print pieces very stylish. There are a few of them in my wardrobe and I enjoy styling them to create different looks. I wore this outfit the other day, and I decided to photograph the look for a fashion blog post. I have had the animal print blazer for years now and it still looks brand new. It is one of my spring/summer staples. This animal print blazer does not look as old as I have had it. That is what happens when you invest a bit more in quality. I love the loose relaxed fit, it is dead easy to style and very comfy to wear.

Trends come and go but the Animal print will always be in vogue in my eyes. It has been popular in the fashion industry for years and I don’t see that changing anytime soon. The animal print look is sassy and very stylish when paired up correctly. I see the trend being around forever.

I got the black trousers I have on in the sales and wore it for the first time on this day. It has a relaxed fit which I love; perfect for the spring/summer months. The black top is also a new wardrobe addition. I got it as a Christmas gift and wore it for the first time on this day too! I love both pieces, and I know I will be wearing them over and over again in different ways.

Outfit Post – Alala by Aken

*PR sample and Affiliate links.

Good thing I took these outfit photos last week for this fashion blog post. The weather has been miserable here this week, with non stop rain and strong winds. Always good to make hay when the sun shines for real.

I am wearing a lovely blouse by Alala by Aken. You may remember this clothing brand from my last outfit post, where I featured a bomber jacket from the designer. Here, I am wearing another stunning piece from the brand. I love everything about this blouse. It is a stunning fabric designed beautifully. I can see the attention to detail on it. The sleeves are giving me life. Love them!

How to dress for a date night

When it comes to going on a date, you have to get your outfit (and your date) right. You don’t want to com across too casual or too keen (if your date is new), so styling your pieces and accessories has to be spot on. Here are some tips that may come in handy for a date night look.

Go for comfort

You need to make sure your outfit is comfortable. The last thing you want is for you to be unable to eat because your waist trainer is too tight or for you to be cold because your outfit isn’t weather appropriate. Always endure you dress for comfort especially on date night with a new person. You want to focus on your date and not on your outfit.

 

Pay attention to your shoes

The shoes are very important when it comes to styling for a date night, especially when your date is a new flame. You don’t want shoes you can’t work easily in. The shoes need to be the right fit and be weather appropriate. Don’t wear stilettos if you can’t work in them. The last thing you want to deal with on a date night is sore feet.

 

Be yourself

Ensure you dress for yourself first. It is ok to go above and beyond when dressing for a date. But you need to remember to stick to you style and be yourself. Don’t opt for minis, if you are usually a maxi type of woman. Date night is not the type to experiment with garments and accessories.

Put in more effort

You should dress for yourself first, and be yourself when it comes to deciding on what to wear, but you should put in more effort. Don’t dress too casual. Make a bit more of an effort when going on a date.

 

Pay attention to your underwear

The last thing you would want is your bra strap or pant line showing, so ensure your underwear suits the outfit you have on. Wearing amazing lingerie also makes you feel even better about yourself, so if you are after some confidence boast, pay special attention to your underwear.

 

The little black dress always wins

When everything fails, the little black dress always wins, so make sure you have at least at the ready. You can look effortlessly stylish wearing a little black dress with stunning accessories.

 

Accentuate the back, neck or shoulders

The back, neck, legs and shoulders are some parts of the body that men find the most attractive. You can show off some of these parts in a mild way, and not show too much skin.  a strapless top, a dress with a low back or a mini skirt would work great.
