At the corner of the bar is your date, waiting to be approached. Your eyes catch your date’s eye with amazement as you step closer. The ambience of the room seems to slow down. Then date night nerves creep in, and what you have on at this moment could make or break you. It does not have to be hard. Take this advice on what to wear on these three locations at the beach, a movie night or a dinner date.
These three outfits and places in Long Beach are bound to impress your hunk of a date.
A beach date is the least expensive. Suggest a picnic on the sand, eat snacks and enjoy that conversation while you look at the sunset’s sherbet ice cream skies. Right on the other side of Second Street of Belmont Shore lies a beachfront waiting to be visited. Have fun in an off-the-shoulder Wet Seal dusty rose top, blue denim Marley pants, a pair of Pink Sheep Heiress sunglasses and sandals to be comfy next to your date.
Movie night dates at the Harwin’s Theater could be the most common and low-budget date you can have in Long Beach. Grab his hand in the theater looking fly with this ensemble. In this outfit, a graphic tee by the Animal Project Foundation, shows the Ruff Day of being a college student with a sense of humor. Pair it with a light-knit sweater by Dirtee Hollywood, grey denim Marley pants and fringe heels.
Have dinner at Saint and Second in Belmont Shore where the atmosphere is trimmed with the gold piping interior of the ceiling. Set the standard and live a little at the bar — order drinks and snacks — and look casual, but alluring in this outfit. The best dates start with an outgoing conversation and smile. Flaunt in this dress by Mink Pink, add rose gold jewelry, darling earrings to go with the dress and gold heels to finish your date’s first words: “ wow you look incredible.”
