We've all heard the complaints about the so-called death of dating, but from where we sit, the art of courtship in the nation's capital is alive and well. Now, what to wear? No matter if your date is super-serious or just a hangout sesh, you still need an amazing outfit that makes you look and feel your absolute best.
And that's where we come in: We've taken notes from one of our favorite local style bloggers, Nifesimi Oluwole of Skinny Hipster, to create the perfect day-to-date look just for you. It's guaranteed to flatter your figure (and impress your potential S.O.) — plus, it makes that frantic 5 p.m. changeover feel so much easier. Read on to get prepped and polished — and maybe even partnered up.
Here, Oluwole proves that a denim jacket and skinny pants aren't necessarily reserved for the weekend. She adds a tailored element for work with a crisp white button-up; a colorful clutch and pumps make it ready for drinks or dinner with a new flame.
