But, before you stress over what to wear and consider canceling, we're gonna let you in on a little secret: A 60-second gander through your closet is all it takes to find an outfit that's understated and effortless, yet date-night-approved. And, our fearless fashion editors are here to prove just that in this episode of Maybelline's Style Throwdown. For this round, senior style editor Annie Georgia Greenberg puts fashion market writer Alyssa Coscarelli through the wringer to whip up two outfits worthy of an after-hours rendezvous. While the date might not set off sparks, there's no denying these looks are straight fire. Now, take a deep breath, and go get 'em.
