What to Wear on Date Night
Rhiannon Ally: When it comes to date night, whether it is a casual dinner or a fancy night out on the town, are you rummaging through your closet to find just the right thing to wear? Do not panic. Jenn Falik is getting a little help from one celebrity designer on the perfect outfit for any dating dilemma in today’s Savvy Shopper.
Jenn Falik: Ladies, when it comes to getting dressed for date night, you got to ask your self, “Are you dressing for other women or are you dressing for the man that you maybe going out with?” A lot of times, women dress for women and those clothes aren’t always the ones that the guys love. So today, I am here with Jay Godfrey. He is a designer of an amazing line of contemporary clothes. I am wearing one of his dresses right now actually. He is going to give us a man’s perspective on what to wear for the ultimate date night.
Jay, thank you so much for joining me today and giving us lots of good outputs.
Jay Godfrey: My pleasure. I think when women go on date nights; you really got to be careful about what they pick. They do not want to show too much, they do not want to show too little.
So, one of the things that I would pick for going out on the town, is really something in this thing, something long and lean and sexy. But I really love the idea of taking a color black, keeping your whole silhouette very, very long and lean and narrow but showing a little bit of skin. It is important to show a little bit but not too much.
Jenn Falik: A little bit but not too much. And you are known for your color blacking and this dress is gorgeous. So, you’d say a silhouette like this where you show your shape but it is not like its skin tightened.
Jay Godfrey: You do not want to give it all the way right at the beginning to start with. Secondly, I think it is important to show where your best assets are but not too much.
Jenn Falik: Nice. And then what about for a night out that’s not like super dressing, not necessarily, maybe dinner and dancing but you are going to dinner and a movie and you still want to look feminine but you do not want to look too done?
Jay Godfrey: When you are going to a movie or going to dinner or you want to keep it casual, I really like easy dresses that have a lot of flow to them but they are not showing too much. And something like this is the perfect example.
It’s very, very easy. It’s got a little bit of edge with exposed zipper but its got a high neck line, very, very, easy but it is the type of thing you can wear with flats, you can wear with a heel.
Jenn Falik: You can be comfortable in it.
Jay Godfrey: Exactly.
Jenn Falik: Like the worst thing is to be on a date and not feeling comfortable.
Jay Godfrey: Well, that’s when you don’t act yourself.
Jenn Falik: Yeah. That is when everything just starts off on an awkward narrow. And what if you are going on a day time date, especially in the summer, a lot of people like to do picnics or day time activities. What is appropriate? What do you suggest?
Jay Godfrey: Well, I love the word appropriate because everybody’s definition is different. I always love something with a little bit of edge.
Now, here from the front, this looks like a Fuschia Camisole but you turn it around and you got this lace at the back.
Jenn Falik: Sexy in the back.
Jay Godfrey: It gives you a little bit of sex appeal. Again, not too much but it shows that you are willing to dare a little bit, not to excite any guy.
Jenn Falik: And what would you pair this with, would you do it with jeans? Shorts?
Jay Godfrey: I love it with kind of like a white jean short or a whitecap short or a denim mini, pair of jeans and flats is great. This is something that goes with almost anything and something that a woman should have in their wardrobe always like great kind of item, camisole.
Jenn Falik: I think is the color is so great. I feel like every woman loves to wear fuchsia, a little pink, a little purple will always make you feel feminine.
Jay Godfrey: Jewel tones are the best on everybody’s skin.
Jenn Falik: Well, thank you so much for all of these great tips and now, let me know what to wear. You just have to plan the perfect date and if you’d like more information on Jay Godfrey or to checkout some of his designs, you can go to his stores or checkout JayGodfrey.com.
