Outfit Under $75: Darling Dinner Date

When the modern college girl goes on a date, it’s best for her not to assume that the other party will be paying for her in full. So with this in mind, what better way to have some extra cash for a delicious dinner than by saving on your brand new date outfit? Sure, you want to look cute for your new guy (or current one), but that doesn’t mean you have to break the bank on a head-turning look.

Depending on the type of date, you can go with a variety of looks. You can dress up jeans or dress down a sequined top, as long as you stay appropriate for the venue. For the purposes of this outfit, we’re going to go with a dinner date, which is a fairly common theme that most girls will run into at some point. The restaurant choice may be a small factor where your outfit is concerned, but for the most part, it’s best to stay flirty, fun and simple.

Dress: $17.80, Forever 21, Cardigan: $20, Kohl’s, Sandals: $19.80, Wet Seal, Clutch: $8.99, Payless, Headband: $6.50, Charlotte Russe

Total: $73.09

A ruffled dress in a bold hue is a great focal point for this look, and bejeweled sandals and a rhinestone headband add just the right amount of glam. A simple cover-up is useful to have if it gets colder, and to add some layers to your outfit. An understated clutch is the perfect place to store your essentials. You can swap the flats for heels or the sweater for a jacket, if that makes you feel more comfortable and confident, because, after all, feeling good in your outfit is always the best way to start a date!
