What to Wear for Dinner With Friends

Although I like to keep things fairly beauty-related on my blog and YouTube channel, I can’t resist dipping into a bit of fashion at times! I’m not a huge buyer of clothes, but every now and again I go through phases of sprucing up my wardrobe, and love finding items that I know I’ll love for ages.

On YouTube I like to do occasional ‘Outfit of the Day’ videos. These videos aren’t necessarily what I’m wearing that particular day, but for ‘occasions’ – a job interview, a wedding or a social occasion. I recently posted an Outfit of the Day for dinner with friends, and I thought it would make an interesting blog post too!

When going for dinner with friends, I love to wear a casual dress with a cardigan; it provides just the right amount of glamour without looking over-done.

On this occasion, I wore:

  • A leopard print and mesh dress from New Look – £25
  • Primark black tights – £2.50
  • New Look black cardigan – £10
  • Primark black bow shoes – £4.00
  • New Look black quilted bag – £7.00

I love that the dress has a clinching gold belt around the waist – it is positioned just right so that it creates a subtle ‘A line’ and skims the waist. Never a bad thing if you’re about to chow down on some yummy food!

The cardigan helps to keep you warm as it gets chillier, but doesn’t make you too hot in the restaurant. The explanation for the shoes isn’t too classy – I basically broke a toe the other week and they are the only shoes wide enough to ensure that my toes aren’t squished!

What do you think of this outfit? What do you like to wear for dinner with friends?

Stay Creative,
