The Perfect Outfit For A Casual Date

We know you may have hot Valentine's Day dresses on the brain, but why not flip the script and choose an outfit that would look adorable on your date and still stay dignified for a wee walk of shame? Seen at our Revolve Clothing bash, Jaycie rocked a casual-cool ensemble that would transition perfectly from the office to a romantic dinner, without skipping a beat. Just put on a sweet button-up shirt, lots of layered necklaces, trousers, and some decadent platform heels, and you'll be all set, for a first date, anniversary, or even a sexy V-Day surprise.
