The Savvy Stylist: Second "First" Date

Reader Request

About six months ago, I got in touch with my high school boyfriend on Facebook. He moved across the country almost ten years ago and we haven't seen each other since, although our breakup was amicable. We've been emailing for the past few months and we've really connected again. In a few weeks, he's coming to my city for a business trip, and we're going to meet for dinner and drinks. I'm really, really excited to see him in person again, and I want to look my best, but I am a jeans girl through and through. Can you help me figure out something to wear that's casual but that will still blow his mind?

I think this outfit will be perfect for your date with your ex. It's casual yet sexy - but not too sexy - and costs only $94.44. I hope you guys have a great time!

The Savvy Stylist: Day at the Theme Park

Reader Request

I am having a problem. A couple of my friends and I are going to a theme park at the end of the month and I have no idea what to wear. I know its going to be hot during the day and a bit chilly at night. I need an outfit that is comfy, edgy, and will dry easily after getting in a water ride. I am pretty open but my style is very edgy and rocker chic.

This look will be comfy enough to spend the day at the park, but stylish enough for your rocker chick sensibilities. You can keep the jacket in your bag and throw it on when it gets cool. I skipped the jewelry because you'd probably have to take it off for the rides. The whole look costs only $91.39.

The Savvy Stylist: Formal Events for a Young Teacher

Reader Request:

I'm a young high school teacher (just turned 24) and I have to go to TWO fancy events for my school: the military ball and prom. I need two formal outfits that will set me apart from the students (I am frequently mistaken for them) while still being youthful- I don't want to look matronly! I'm in Houston so it's likely to be hot when I leave for the event, but cold inside since they'll be blasting the A/C. Any help would be super appreciated!

The first outfit is for the military ball. There may not be much to it, but the items pack a punch. It's chic but so elegant that you will not be confused for a student, and the top of the dress will keep you covered in the A/C! This outfit only costs $100 (on the nose!)

Shop Now:

This outfit is for the prom. It's trendy, but its sophistication will set you apart once again. The dress is also very versatile for future use (and the long sleeves will keep you warm)! This look is only $93.65.

5 Under $50: Vintage Inspired Cuffs

Cuff bracelets are very trendy for spring. To really accessorize an outfit, we like a big, vintage style bracelet.
