Movie dates are one of the best go-to date ideas! I really like them because it could be your first date, or you could go with someone you've been married to for years. It's the perfect date for every stage in a relationship. Now, let's check out how the girls styled their outfits down below! Do you go all out, or like to keep it comfy and casual?

October is one of my favorite months in the entire year, not only because of Halloween but because I get nostalgic about the month my boyfriend and I met. Plus I don't think I'm alone when I say this time of year feels like "date night season." Whether you're headed to the pumpkin patch or going to the movies to watch a scary flick, there's so much to do with your boo or your girlfriends!
With the theme of this week being Movie Date, I chose an outfit that was both stylish but also comfortable. To be honest, my usual "movie theater attire" consists of sweats, a cozy top, and an extra large purse for snacks. ;) But if it's a special night like an anniversary, I would definitely dress it up like this! I paired our flowy teal culottes with a loose fitting tank and I'm especially fond of how well these pants fit! They hit at the perfect spot on my waist and don't squeeze to create any weird bulges the non-stretchy pants tend to make on me usually. I also tied a knot in the tank to accentuate my waist. This is my favorite trick with looser fitting tops to instantly take off a few pounds!
To pull this look together I put on a denim jacket. This is the perfect time of year for jean jackets because at 2 pm it might feel like summer still but by 7 pm, you're freezing. I put on a size large to have a more oversized fit; I like to be as comfy as possible at the movies because after all, I'm here to watch a movie and stuff my face with popcorn and milk duds
Fall and winter are perfect months to go to the movies to me. I feel like there's always great movies to choose from and you get to cuddle up next to your loved one and watch a great movie together. Also if you haven't seen 'A Star is Born' yet, go and watch it as soon as possible! Seriously, so good.
Usually when we do a movie date we either get dinner before and then hit up a dessert place afterwards so I always like to dress up for it. Any reason to get dressed up, I'll take it. I also still want to be comfortable though because you are sitting for quite a while usually. I chose this adorable long floral and stripe dress. It is so extremely comfortable and is very easy to move around in. Movie theaters are always freezing cold to me so I made sure to pair it with a leather jacket to keep me warm.
For accessories, I kept it very simple. I paired it with a cute pair of little gold hoops. For shoes I wanted something that was easily to slip on and off and keep my feet comfortable so a cute little flat was perfect for this! Happy date night!

I don't get many date nights anymore (Mom life), but when I do I try to dress up a little. I'm sure my poor guy is tired of seeing me in leggings and sweatpants! I know I'm tired of it, so this week's theme was fun for me!
I'm a sucker for ruffles and burgundy. I love this dress because it's flowy and comfortable, which is a plus if you eat too much on your night out because it will hide your food baby! The ruffle keeps it feminine and the keyhole detail on the back adds a little flirty-ness. The fabric is great because it's breathable and not too heavy, but is cozy like your favorite sweatshirt.
With the weather being slightly more chilly at night a denim jacket adds enough warmth without being too heavy. The distressed look of this one adds some edge to the outfit and balances with the ruffle on the dress nicely.
Since my outfit was sorta plain I really wanted to play up my accessories. I went for some big statement earrings and a pendant necklace. I normally wouldn't go for earrings as loud as these, but they're too fun to pass up! The marble detailing on both these pieces is very on trend right now. If I can't have marble counter tops, at least I can have it in my jewelry.
It's date night and I'm going to the movies! The first thing I thought of is how cold the theater always is! So I heated things up with my look.
I went with grey mid rise jeans, and a cranberry cropped sweater. A simple look that I decided to jazz up a little. With grey and cranberry in mind, I wanted to mix up my neutrals as well as add some rose gold to the equation.
I went with a toffee belt, sand open toed heels, and a rose gold pendant necklace and rose gold hoop earrings. I played around with yellow gold as well, adding gold aviator shades with rose gold mirror lenses, and 2 gold bangles. This look is ready for a movie, and dinner or drinks to follow after the show. Simple and subtly sassy was the theme, and the way to go on date night! Let the show begin!
Movie night is one of my favorite dates! Whenever my husband and I finally get a night together but don't know what to do, we always check what's playing in the theater nearby!
When we have been with someone for a while, we often start choosing comfort over style, especially when going to the movies. However, there is a way to still "wow" that special someone, while staying nice and comfy! These pants are a great example of just that! They are an eye-catching red color with a trendy striped design. But the best part... they have a thicker sheer material that is a little warmer and super easy to move around in! Yes, these are the perfect lounging pants, yet they're also somehow crazy cute?!
Since movie theaters are usually cold, a long sleeve is a must-have! But once again, we don't have to completely sacrifice style for comfort. The long sleeve I chose is also off-the-shoulder to add a flirty element into my look! This top comes in both mustard and black, but I used the black one to help pull that same color out in the striped pants.
Finally, to complete this look I decided to add large statement earrings. It gives you the illusion of wearing a lot of jewelry and dressing up, when in reality you are only wearing earrings! There you have it, a super easy three-piece outfit that will impress that special someone, while you also stay nice and comfy for your movie!
There's something so romantic about the Silver Screen, the enchanting stories, the beautiful actors and actresses with the wittiest dialogues, the flawless fashion, and the best part is that it will only cost you $11.50 to escape your own life for a couple hours! Movie theater date nights have been a popular destination for love birds since the dawn of Cinema. My Husband and I love, love movie date nights and enjoy visiting the older theaters likes the Tower and The State, there's nothing better than their vintage charm and the nostalgic feeling you get from visiting! I grew up watching all the old classics on Turner Classic Movies with my dad so I have a great appreciation for black & white and Tricolor films and for the greats like Humphrey Bogart, Carry Grant, Ingrid Bergman, and of course Betty Davis.
My Movie Date Night style is probably different than most, I like to dress the part just like any other date night. The outfit that I styled for this weeks theme has a vintage/masculine feel. I chose our emerald green chenille sweater and wore it with a pair of our gray plaid trouser pants. This chenille Sweater is probably the softest sweater that I have ever worn, It feels like melted butter against your skin and the color is a beautiful jewel toned emerald hue.
The menswear styled trousers are my favorite item from this styled look though! These pants feature a very flattering plaid print in an equally flattering wide leg silhouette. They are made of 100 percent itch-less polyester and have a nice thick and heavy weight to them which is great for the Holiday Season that's soon approaching.
For my accessories I chose to go minimal since the boldness of the colors and patterns were already pretty striking. I ended up picking a long gold chain necklace with a green and brown malachite pendant at the bottom. Some of our customers don't know this but a nice variety of our necklaces are sold as a set with matching earrings. The necklace that I chose was actually one of the ones that came with matching earrings and those are the gold circle ones that I wore with this outfit. $18 for both a necklace and a cute pair of matching earrings is quite a deal in my opinion. So here is my movie date night styled look with a nod to the classics with the vintage patterns and rich textures I hope that you enjoyed it!
