Mixing casual with comfort really has become a normal way of dressing now. Gone are the days of painting the town red with just a cocktail dress and super high stilettos.

When it comes to deciding on how revealing your look will be, I recommend striking a balance instead of showing too much skin. Pick one area to reveal and keep everything else classy and covered. For example, if you wish to show off your abs then wear a dress with a nice surprise for your date. A very gorgeous V-Day outfit will be classically beautiful and tasteful. The perfect look will accentuate your natural curves.
Be Comfortable, In A Boho Jumpsuit
There’s no worse feeling in the world than being stuck out and about in an uncomfortable outfit. Opt for a 70s revival with a boho jumpsuit. What is great about a beautiful jumpsuit, is it can add a boost of confidence to your brunch date. A tight fitted and feminine outfit is designed to make a man flip out! Add some retro infused accessories, but remember less is always more.
Statement Blouse Is a Must

If you are not a fan of dresses, you can always pick a statement blouse from day to evening. Mixing casual wear with a dressy look is what makes fashion so much fun to experiment with. A super frilled blouse with vintage details can bring out your classy side. Try wearing the blouse with a pair of fitted jeans to give your style a more laid-back look.
