What To Wear To The Movies

Wondering what to wear to the movies? Here are a couple of cozy ideas.

When I go to the movie, I want to be casual, warm and comfy. This look is perfect for that. Start with a pair of black leggings, and add a t-shirt and scarf or a thin turtleneck, then top is off with a long boyfriend sweater. Cute booties always make you feel a little more dressed up, and, of course, a relaxed, slouchy bag is relaxed but classy on weekends.

Here’s a second look along the same lines.

If you are not a fan of leggings jeans always work, a but why not go for the newest look- 70’s inspired flares.  A long chunky sweater is casual and funky. Add some fab leather booties, a bucket bag, and a leather braided bracelet and you’re off the movies. Have fun!


If you are looking for a good movie to go to, holiday movie season is just around the corner, and it looks like Love the Coopers is going to be hilarious!


If you haven’t already seen the previews, Love The Coopers is about the four generations of the Cooper clan coming together for their annual Christmas Eve celebration. Unexpected visitors and crazy events turn the night totally upside down, but also lead to a surprising rediscovery of family bonds and the spirit of the holiday.  Diane Keaton, Alan Arkin, John Goodman, Amanda Seyfried, Marisa Tomei, and Olivia Wilde are just a few members of this fab all-star cast.

Love the Coopers starts November 13th, so don’t miss it!

    I had a great time participating in the What to Wear to the Movies pinterest contest and am excited to have won! I actually have an outfit very similar to the winning collage and wear it often. I am 45 and have been told I look younger. Maybe some days I do. :) I don’t want to dress too young and look ridiculous (nothing worse) but I do think this outfit is appropriate for someone in the 40’s. Perhaps not older than that though. I think a little tasteful distressing on these boyfriend jeans is fun, but not excessive. I love earth tones and love the trend of lace right now too. I own the same shoes shown, and they are comfortable and age appropriate. I do live in a small town so going to the movies here is a casual event! Thanks for the opportunity!

  4. Deborah, I agree with you, I thought the winning look was a bit young looking so I’m looking forward to hearing what others love about this look. As it it summer, I voted for the second runner up because maci’s tend to be my go-to date night outfit and I love the idea of the denim jacket to dress it down a bit. And, we all know, you just can’t go wrong with black and white.
