Recently, The Style Common did a fun little date-night-themed styling session. One thing I love about our group is that we really represent a lot of diversity, whether it’s through our styles or our body types. I, for one, have a hybrid-type body: strong and athletic but also very distinctly hourglass. Read on to see my tips for dressing for a date night for an athletic figure, and be sure to check out Alicia, Jen T and Jen P‘s tips as well on their blogs!
Thanks to all the running, weight-training and swimming I do, I have muscles I don’t mind showing off. An asymmetrical hemline (also known as a mullet dress, but that’s such an unappealing way of describing such a beautiful silhouette) is the perfect way of showcasing my hard-earned muscular legs, while a delicate neckline shows off my shoulders and arms! A few added inches in height, a dash of animal print, some metallic intrigue via some rose gold accessories and I’m good to go! Whether it’s a date with my man or a girls night, I’m set!
