Whether it’s seeing a romantic-comedy with girlfriends or an action-adventure on date-night with the hubby, a night out at the movies is a treat. But what do you wear when you don’t want to keep it casual yet still look pulled together and polished? Here are three great outfit formulas for when you’re wondering what to wear to the movies.
Cardigan + Jeans + Booties
Long cardigans are big right now, and this elegant duster cardigan is a perfect example. I love the rich brown of this sweater. Not only is it an ‘in’ color this fall, it’s a refreshing change from black and is a particularly good color for gals with warm undertones in their skin. Let the subtle drama of this cardigan stand out by keeping the rest of the outfit simple – jeans and a t-shirt are all you need. Suede booties and a tote complete the outfit and look harmonious with the brown cardi.
Leggings + Sweater + Riding Boots
Regular readers know that I’m a big fan of leggings; they can’t be beat for comfort, ease, and versatility and when styled the right way they can be incredibly chic. There are so many ways to wear leggings! Here I’ve styled them with a soft and casual cable knit v-neck pullover. I love the burgundy color of this sweater. Low-heeled black riding boots complete the look. After seasons of booties, it’s so nice to see riding boots making a return.
Jeans + Sweater + Sneakers
Jeans and sneakers are the epitome of a casual look but instead of your ratty old sneakers, opt instead for a more modern pair like these perforated pink slip-ons. They’re cute, comfortable and youthful without looking too young. I chose this statement sleeve sweater to bring in a bit of color close to your face and to play up the tone of the shoes. Add a chic navy bag, and you’re ready to go.
What about you? Do you get dressed up or keep it casual when you go to the movies? What’s your favorite look for a night out at the show?
