Pretty, Dainty Date Looks for Less

Romantic details add sweetness to these sexy (under-$40!) tops

If you're in the mood for demure this weekend, nothing beats a simple, girly blouse or tank, paired with simple pants or even jeans. Add a soft cardigan or blazer and a cute clutch, and you've got an easy Friday- or Saturday-night look that's comfortable, feminine, and flirty. And with these sweet tops? It's an inexpensive ensemble, too — so you can save your money for drinks, dinner, or movie tickets.

Oh, and no one's saying this “date” can't be a night out with your friends, either. Just add a killer pair of heels, like these Hotty Peep Toe Pumps ($34.99 at Payless Shoe Source) and you'll be ready to hit the dance floor — daintily, of course.

My favorite frills? I love the delicate ruffles on this Crinkle Chiffon Flutter-Sleeve Top (pictured, $39.90 at Express), which looks classic and cute with black pants and simple jewelry. And I can't picture anything cuter than this LC Lauren Conrad Tiered Tank (only $27.99 at Kohl's) to pair with skinny jeans or jeggings. The grossgrain bow at your midsection slims and flatters — what's not to love?

If pink is not your thing, the ivory Dawn Ruffle Cami ($39.50 at Delia's) is a sweet steal, as is this versatile black Sheer Ruffle Tank ($14.40 at Kensie). These sultry tops will have you looking romantic and confident. If that's not the perfect look for a date, I don't know what is!

Does your idea of a “romantic” look involve lace or ruffles (or both, or neither?)? Chime in!
