Casual Date Night – how to look skinny and effortless without trying too hard!

Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset

Just admit it, sometimes we didn’t “wake up like this” even though we want our man to think we did. It isn’t always easy putting that “effortless” look together for a casual date night without your spanx or being too casual and ending up looking frumpy. So we put together some casual date night looks that look casual but effortless and it doesn’t hurt some of them actually make you look skinnier too!

To achieve the “effortless” status we need to avoid layering ourselves up in Spanx. Sometimes we need a little built in support and pants like these from Lysse do the job. You can grab these great jeggings from Oh la la Boutique in Grapevine.

I love to throw on a grey leather jacket paired back with a casual tee with a pop of color like on Leanna with these “instant skinny” pants and you are ready to go! Wedges are hot for spring and these nude wedges from Shoedazzle finish this look off perfectly.

This clean white-on-white look paired back with these denim lysee jeggings popped back with the quilted black and white pump from Shoedazzle is a modern casual date night look. The white-on-white is such a HUGE trend and it always looks clean and modern!

Is it movie date night with your main squeeze? You still want to look cute even if he has seen you at your very worst. So a cute and casual looks like this are the perfect way to achieve both.

AND BY THE WAY how adorable is her “boyfriend” necklace she wears with his initial on it to give this look a more “lived in feel”? This kind of personal touch finishes off her look nicely and no one is second guessing who’s girl she is! You can get one too here!

Maybe its a first date or something a little dressier? we need a great little dress that’s flirty but sweet. The long blazer adds a casual touch and is great to have in case we feel a draft and do NOT want to move to the other side of the table.

We still want to dress for our man, so this sexy cool look is just the way to make that happen. These shorts show enough skin to keep him happy. The sheer military blouse is cool chic all the way paired back with these nude strappy shoedazzle heels he wont be able to take his eyes off you! (which is what we want even after all this time together)
