  1. Dress the Part.  When getting ready for date night, look for key pieces and accessories that can take your outfit from meh… to Wow! For guys, a buttoned-down shirt tucked in with a sleek belt can turn your look into a class act. For the ladies, a slick of lipstick and a printed blouse is just the lift you need at the end of the day to take your outfit to the next level.
