Date-nights are all about making a great impression, whether it be with your long-time partner or with a first date. Since impressions are everything, what better way to make a solid impression throughout your date-night than with an outfit that complements both your mood and style. So we asked our Clozette Ambassadors to show us their best date-night looks. 

Read on for date-night style inspiration from our ever stylish Ambassadors: Cassandra, Shu Feng, and Juliana.

--------------------------

Look #1: Collected Cool


Think edgy but still laid-back. Match your chicest collared shirt and well-cut black slacks with snazzy accessories like bowler hats or suspenders. 

Complete the look by accessorizing with a dainty necklace with an unexpected but eye-catching details. JL Heart 14k Rose Gold Thin Necklace with Small Spikes shrinks the usual masculine spikes for a delicate touch that does not lose its edge. The rose gold tone helps to break the monotony in your look while sparkling semi-precious gemstones play peek-a-boo through your shirt collar. Complete the look with the Round Luxury Ear Studs in Rose Gold for a classic accent that peeks out each time you brush your hair behind your ears.


Look #3: Red Carpet Ready


If you are headed to a ball or a dressy formal event, maxi dresses are the way to go. It helps to lengthen your legs and gives you a stunning silhouette. And if you are opting for an understated black piece, take it from the red carpet pros – put on statement earrings and bracelets for a clean, sleek look.


JL Heart Dazzling Dangling Solitaire Earrings sway ever so gently with every step you take, capturing light for the alluring sparkle while the long shape of the earrings accentuate your neckline. The Sterling Silver Bead Bracelet with Heart Locket adds a sweet and dainty accent to your wrist.


Look #4: Casual Classy


Just because you're in the mood to dress down for your Friday date-night doesn't mean you have to lose comfort over fashion. Match your cosiest oversized sweater with a long pencil skirt or straight cut maxi skirt for a touch of dressed-up elegance with a casual mood.


Polish your look with pearl details. JL Heart Dazzling Double-ended studs have stunning front studs with crystal glass and an iridescent pearl backing. Pair the look with the Delicate Single Pearl Bracelet to accentuate the allure of freshwater pearls to instantly make you look well-put together.


Look #5: Love Story in Lace


When dressing up for a casual afternoon date, always dress comfortably with romantic details. Think loose braids, lace details, and flirty dresses. Wear sterling silver pieces to add chic details so the look will not look overly saccharine sweet.


JL Heart Sterling Silver Infinity Logo Necklace sits perfectly on your décolletage with its polished finish. For some sparkle, the Double Heart Curve Ear Studs is both on point with the current trends while adding a touch of romance to the occasion.


Look #6: Rock Royalty


For an evening night out, opt for a fun bustier cocktail dress in nude. This option is fuss-free and goes with just about anything.


Rock the sophisticated regal look with the JL Heart Classic Gold Hoops with CZ that amp up the classic hoops with cubic zirconia cut for the perfect sparkle from any angle. As the sweetheart bustier leaves your décolletage empty, draw attention to your collarbones with the glamorous Wheel of Fortune Necklace in Classic Gold. After all, any excuse to look glam is a good excuse!

Why do I love fashion you might ask? It's because it serves as my creative outlet where I can express a part of my identity. What I choose what to wear every day is how I let people see a part of me. Not only that, but I also continuously learn and discover more about myself and my sense of style through my love for fashion. So can you imagine how ecstatic I was when I knew that I would get to attend an event that celebrates my passion? Euphoria!



I’ve always wanted to attend Philippine Fashion Week but for some reason it always never seemed to work out in my favour. So I really didn't know what to expect! I felt so anxious and excited at the same time during the first day. However, as I got the feel of the event, my anxiousness calmed down.


Before Fashion Week started, I did some research and browsed the designers and brands participating just so I would have a bit of an idea on what I would see on the runway; and I definitely fell in love with Jeffrey Rogador’s JPNY collection so I was super excited for Day 2! There might seem a lot going on on these sweaters but it’s such a statement piece! Plus, a Filipino twist was injected to it through the street names found here in Manila! My heart skipped a beat when I saw these on the runway. Definitely buying one of these!




Another favourite of mine was Kashieca’s Little Black Dress collection! I really enjoyed how they showed the different ways on how you can style each LBD. And being the girly me, my personal ffavouritewas The Party Dress by Sassa Jimenez. The poofy skirt plus the gorgeous low back detail gave out a very classy look with a subtle sexiness! 




During the 3rd day of PhFW, we also received goodie bags from Dominique Tiu and JL Ladrido! We were supposed to have a meet and greet but since JL had an emergency, they sent this out instead to us to make up for it. Very thoughtful of them!! Thank you Dominique and JL!!




When it comes to the trends though there were a lot I was excited about! I’m starting to stock my closet up with burgundy and green colours, which are the colours of the season and  some grid and leopard patterned pieces. However, the trend I loved the most though is from Suiteblanco – denim! They paired it with a lot of purples, pinks and different textures. One thing’s for sure, denim on denim is back and I am so ready to splurge on this jumper!




Deciding on what to wear for three days of Fashion Week really got to me. I felt like I had nothing to wear! But of course I was able to pull myself together an outfit. I opted to stick with black and white colors to be on the safe side since this is my first time. This is what I wore to Day 1: Forever 21 skirt, H&M necklace & Penshoppe top.




For Day 2, I was feeling a bit edgy and wore this knitted Zara sweater dress. It felt so comfortable I could have stayed in it for weeks! Again, I stayed in my self-proclaimed theme for PhFW, which is black. Zara sweater dress, So Fab boots, and SM Accessories necklace.




For the last day of Fashion Week, I used the models I saw at SMX as my inspiration for this outfit. I wanted to go with the model off duty kind of look by wearing ripped shorts, a black F21 top, and paired it with my chunky heeled mandals from H&M and a black Prada bag.




Thank you so much Clozette for this wonderful opportunity!! I really enjoyed being a Clozette Correspondent! Philippine Fashion Week was such a dream!
