So whether you’re hitting a night on the town or just the 10:00 showing of Fifty Shades of Grey, wear something unexpected by emulating one of these celebrity ensembles.
Beyoncé and Jay Z
Despite more than a decade as “Bonnie & Clyde,” Beyoncé still takes the time to dress up for dates with Jay Z. She put together this artful ensemble for their day spent gallery-hopping in London. You can pull off pattern play like Beyoncé by contrasting light and dark elements, like the pop star did with her Tanya Taylor floral pencil skirt in light hues and that dark abstract print top. She kept the styling simple with minimalist footwear and a quilted bag, and a charming pink lip gave her look a flirty touch.
Your skirt and top will be expertly matched, even if you and your date aren’t:
