What to Wear for a Casual Night

Whether it’s going to a modestly priced restaurant or a movie, casual nights out will be much more common than lavish outings to the opera or dinner theaters. Not that those are not without merit, it’s just that most of us don’t have the time or budget for such things on a regular basis.

So if you do find yourself in a casual night out with friends or a loved one, then what’s the best way to dress? You don’t want to go too casual with sweatpants and a shirt, and you don’t want to spend too much time creating an outfit, so where is the happy medium? A simple way to make yourself look fashionable yet casual is to focus on three things: hair, accessories, and shoes. 


Although it’s so much easier and more preferable to tie your hair in a ponytail and call it a night, the fact is there are many different styles you can use that will make it seem like you put in way more effort than you did. A little spray, a little brush, and you can make a casual night seem effortless.


Even if you do decide to go with a sweatshirt and jeans, you can instantly upgrade your look with a designer handbag or jewelry. In fact, a high-quality handbag can turn almost any outfit into something fashionable, as long as you know what you’re doing. Alligator or ostrich skin bags are a fantastic investment because they are classically designed and made to last. In fact, as long as you pick out a neutral color scheme, you can use an alligator or ostrich skin purse in almost any situation.


When it comes to footwear, you can wear flats, heels, boots, or sandals. As long as the shoe makes sense with the outfit, then you can add some flair without making a huge statement.
