Try This: The Perfect First-Date Look

With Valentine’s Day approaching, we started thinking about what to wear to impress, and emanate confidence, on a first date. Leading up to the date can be daunting enough, so take stressing over what to wear out of the equation. We asked stylist Carlos-Alonso Parada for his advice. For Carlos, the foundation of the perfect outfit lies with a nice top and jacket, paired with black or blue denim. Don’t be afraid to mix in prints, he advises. Accent the ensemble with a pair of high heels, and head out the door!

First Date-2

Liz is wearing Givenchy tank, a Chloé animal print coat, and Dior earrings (all Forty Five Ten), a Brandy Pham needle ring (brandypham.com), Marc Cross bag (Forty Five Ten), and Joe Fresh black jeans.
