'Date Night' style thanks to Amuse Society and Brixton
Traditional date night style leans towards outfits that have been polished and put together, but here at The Freedom State we love something a little edgier, something a little rock 'n' roll. Think a silky dress effortlessly slipped over musk-scented skin, The Rolling Stones vinyl spinning in the background.
Date night opens the opportunity to wear styles that feel a little too luxurious for daytime – like Amuse’s beautiful black Sweet Surrender Midi Dress with lace detailing that runs down and highlights the décolletage. This collection hints that she’s a flirt but an old romantic, with skirts that drift down past the knee. The brand has also brought us delicate mini dresses that are cool and comfortable. Play with your dress and tuck it into a skirt to create a cute camisole that won’t peep out.
The Caroline Cap - A Fiddler x beret lovechild
A beret at a night is a simple way to nail the art of French-girl style and adds an air of mystery. Experiment with this style if you’re new to incorporating hats with your evening wear.
Brixton has brought out a charming black cap that is the lovechild of a fiddler and a beret. They have also created the classic felt style in a lively leopard print, adding a pop of colour to your outfit and drawing heads from all around the room. Refer to Bianca Jagger in an embellished black beret to see how it’s done.
We’re crushing hard on berets right now, the perfect way to add a little spice to your attire. Hats are the perfect accessory to transform any look from flat to flirty, offering a thousand solutions in one. Bad hair day? Throw a hat on. Windy outside? A hat will keep that hour-long hairstyle in place. Don’t have an hour to play around? Fly out the door – carefree – hat in hand.
Sneaky peeky into Amuse Society Winter
Another way to play with your date night outfit is to draw inspiration from the wild parties of Studio 54 and throw a faux fur over the top. This style is a sneak peek of a new style that will be released this Winter '18 by Amuse Society. Adding outerwear is the easiest way to go from outdoors to in and allows you to showcase your legs. Bust out that mini dress you’ve been dying to wear. Play it down with a little clear gloss, or play it up with a deep red. It’s up to you babe.
We gots it all for you
Finish your look with some rocker boots like our Chicko Ankle Boots in python or suede; an easy way to walk through the day and ease into night. Add some subtle jewels from Temple of the Sun and you’re ready to roll out the door.
