Let’s face it — going to dinner with couple friends is not just an excuse to catch up, but also an excuse to show other cute couples how cute (and stylish) you are. I mean I don’t know about you, but I’ve got two usual ways of dressing — for the office or for weekends at home. So the only time I get to wear something that’s at all sexy or fun is when we go out, usually with friends, and these days, our idea of a wild night out is dinner with friends (god, when did we get so old?).
But for some reason, picking out an outfit, even if we’re just going to dinner with good friends who couldn’t care less what I look like, stresses me out. It’s probably because I don’t have a lot of “going out” clothes now that hitting the bars and clubs isn’t in my regular weekend lineup. I find my work dresses are too “office” and my usual weekend wear is too schlumpy mom. That’s why I like to throw in a cute top and fun heel when going to dinner with couple friends. Sadly, I recently realized I don’t have many of those, so that’s something I’m going to add to my shopping list this month.
Here are my favorite outfit ideas to wear to dinner with couple friends.
