Dressing for YOUR Body Type on Date Night

Submitted by


Scheduling a date is one thing, but finding an outfit for a date is the most stressful part. Never mind fearing his weird small hands or being nervous and talking too much. Let’s discuss what shoes to pair with your new dress!

Date-night dressing doesn’t have to be stressful. Finding a stylish outfit that makes you feel confident, while showing off your personality, is exactly what you need. Instead of trying trends, take a few tips from my stylebook and stick to dressing for your body type this fall — you’re sure to make your best first impression.

Pear Shaped

Take on date night with an illustrious boho-vibe by paring in-season, curve-hugging flare jeans with a boho blouse. The goal is to balance the volume of your pear-bottom denim with a glam blouse. Finish this look with brown wedges and a chic cross-body chained Chloe bag to reveal your boho glam perfection.


Apple Shaped

You want to show off your stems in semi-fitted shapes that have open necklines and a nipped-in waist. Opt for a python print Michael Kors Peasant Dress that is flirty and flouncy with Rag & Bone Newberry boots. Don’t forget your fringe-tastic bag from H&M!


Straight Shaped

Show off your slim silhouette with a sleek pair of skinny jeans and an elongated, blush-colored Helmut Lang tank. To create fullness for a narrow shoulder and smaller chest, add a vegan leather jacket from Free People. Finish with chic conversation pieces from the Hermes “H” bracelet in a fiery red and studded Valentino heels.


Curvy Shaped

Owning your curves and showing off your waistline is easy when you have a colorful skirt. This one from Target is the perfect addition for your fall wardrobe. Style it with a knotted-denim shirt and heels, and dance the night away!
