It’s the same quality, and my sizing experience doesn’t tell you much anyway.
What you might not know, is how to make the long denim skirt feel modern. Pov, The fact that everyone is wearing long column skirts this season makes it outdated. All in all, tiktok and IG are oversaturated with column denim skirts already. So, how to style a long denim skirt for a date in summer/early fall? With a black tank top and metallic sandals.
You already know what metallic sandals I have in my mind/feet. But you might want a clue for the black tank top. Well, I’ll give you two. First, a quiet luxury tank top from the Row, and second a black ribbed tank top from &OtherStories.

In this picturesque setting, my attire reflects a blend of European chic and the defining fashion trends of AW23/24. Starting with the black ribbed tank top, that beautifully contrasts with my porcelain skin (pov splurging on SPF is the best investment yet).
To complement the tank top’s allure, a black headband with a rosette crowns my look, a tasteful addition that exudes a hint of sophistication. The pièce de résistance, however, rests upon my feet – the black Aquazzura slingbacks. These slingbacks are the perfect match for the modern skinny jeans, their seamless integration forming a fluid synergy that resonates with the current fashion zeitgeist.
Speaking of the Sézane Le Brut sexy denim jeans, their fit adds an unexpected charm to the outfit. Pov, in my case, the fit is oversized as Sézane’s smallest size – size 23 is too big for me; but your normal size will look skinny on you, which is just what you want. All in all, skinny jeans are coming back on trend for fall 2023.

The silk top’s lace details are a nod to femininity, while the A.P.C. jeans (btw I’m wearing size FR24 – they fit me ok, but they might be too tight for you, so make sure you check the size guide before you hit buy button) lend a touch of casual coolness to the outfit. It’s a combination that reflects your ability to seamlessly blend sophistication with comfort – a true embodiment of summer’s laid-back elegance.
To complete your look, slip into a pair of Diesel white sneakers (pov mine have a golden start, too, but they are sold out – so shop for similar). These sneakers infuse a dash of urban edge, creating a dynamic balance between refinement and a hint of street style. They’re a perfect choice for strolling through city streets, enjoying a leisurely outdoor meal, or exploring art galleries.
SUMMER DATE OUTFIT FOR GALLERY DATE
Mentioning the art galleries, a date at the gallery is one of the most popular date ideas this summer.
While you might not think of sneakers, mules and espadrille wedges as something to wear for an art gallery, but black Castañer wedge espadrilles are, no cap, the best summer shoes to wear when exploring galleries and museums in the summer.
Point of view, the temperature inside is always the same, but the dress code is not as strict as you might think it would be in a cultural centre. Obviously, you can’t just enter in a crop top and distressed denim jeans, but you can black wedge espadrilles. And here is how!

The table should be adorned with fine china (trust me, you will pay for bone china even if they serve your tea in a ceramic mug and treats on ceramic plates), exquisite teapots, and an assortment of dainty pastries and finger sandwiches – a feast for both the eyes and the palate.
But it’s for the ceramics that I suggest you pay them back with sandals and not the closed toe shoes, which are a part of the proper afternoon tea dress code.
Surely, you will not be Antonia (like someone who looks like she was up to cosplay even though she really isn’t) in Stuart Weitzman metallic sandals paired with a fabulous Self Portrait red dress.
