Why is now the time to get your wardrobe on point? It’s Cuffing Season. What’s Cuffing Season, you might ask? Well, it’s the time when singles want to get cuddled up during the cold winter months. In fact, according to Match data there will be more than 100 million singles in the U.S. who’re feeling inspired to meet someone in 2018. Another fun fact? Match has determined that once you recover from the holiday gauntlet (office parties, holiday fetes and New Year’s Eve), singles are ready to hit the ground running. Match (a fellow data junkie!) was even able to determine that Sunday, Jan. 7 is online dating’s peak day of the year.
Feeling inspired to find someone new yet? Let the experts at Stitch Fix get you date night ready.

What to Wear When You’re Getting Serious
Things are heating up, or maybe you two decided that you only have googly eyes for each other. They already adore your shining personality, but it’s always fun to keep up the heat for a date night.
Getting serious outfit essentials:
● A little black dress (or two)

What to Wear When You’re in a Long-term Relationship
You’ve probably become pretty comfortable around each other, maybe been through some ups and downs, and you’ve proven the test of time! Whether it’s celebrating months or years, show them how special their company still means to you with a date night outfit that looks nothing like your favorite jammies they’ve seen so many times!
Long-term relationship outfits:
● Statement-making tops

● Simple sandals
What To Wear To Movie Night
When it comes to movie date outfits, it’s a good idea to keep it casual & cool. Brave those chilly movie theater temps with a breezy blouse and your favorite skinny jeans. And when they pull out the old “yawn” move, just let it slide.
What To Wear If You’re Outdoorsy
Ain’t no mountain high enough! For a hiking date outfit, layer up in lightweight outerwear. Opt for breathable knits and layer on a too-cool jacket, like a bomber. Then, keep your hands free with a utility-inspired backpack—it’s the perfect carryall for snacks, water bottles or whatever the great outdoors throws at you.
What To Wear To A Four-Star Event
If you’re going to the symphony, a broadway show or the nicest restaurant in town, slip into something feminine and timeless like a sheath dress or a classic moto jacket. Throw on your favorite pumps or sandals (weather-permitting) to make your RSVP.
What to Wear to A Happy Hour
The go-to get-to-know-you date! It could be a super swanky new bar that just opened, or maybe it’s a fun and kitschy local dive. No matter the venue, an easy pair of distressed jeans and a flirty top (or dress) to match is a great way to make an impression while still keeping it laid-back and casual.
What To Wear To A Sporting Event
If you and your date are well-versed in what a strike or a triple-double is, take your date to the next inning by heading to a game! First of all, bring out your team’s colors whether it’s a striped shirt in their hues or a cool pop of color on your jacket. Reach for your comfiest jeans so you can be ready to cheer on your team all the way into OT.
What To Wear To A Museum
Ready to soak up some art and culture? Traipsing through museums with your boo is a great way to show off your knowledge of finer things as well as broaden your intellectual horizons. So, why not try to build an outfit that reflects the pieces you’re looking at—like A-line skirts for your modernist minimalists, or feminine details for the romantics!
