A day date could be brunch, lunch, antiquing or a matinee movie. In any case, the date you’ve been waiting for pops up at a moment’s notice. Maybe it’s last-minute, maybe earlier plans now have you running late in preparations. The look for this occasion needs to make you feel special while portraying confidence and general attractiveness (it is a date!) The answer for fall is the statement coat, preferably one that nearly acts as an outfit on its own. The near ankle-length of this red stunner is over the top drama, but you can just as easily use a calf grazer or cocoon style. Boyfriend skinny jeans and slouchy white tee keep it casual (aka you didn’t try too hard, but just happen to look this good.) Of course you add python heels. There is a subtle sexiness to animal print that will off set your casual denim perfectly. Now run out the door and cross your fingers that your coat catches in the wind like this lady, but avoid any cobblestone tripping hazards.

– This Vince coat has the same shocking hue in a slightly shorter length. This one is a darker burgundy, but an equally cozy shape. Maybe hold it for the last-minute night date.
– Skinny boyfriend jeans in a slightly faded traditional blue. Check.
– Pointy pumps in subtly sexy snake print. Bonus points for these actually being comfortable – nobody likes the date that can’t walk.
– A substantial clutch in the season’s must-have print to hold only the essentials.
