What to Wear: Food Truck Date

Keep it casually charming (and comfortable) when you're on a walk-and-talk date at your favourite travelling nosh stop

Food-Truck-Date

Whether on your first date or your 100th, the trendy food truck stop makes the perfect addition to a romantic night. It offers inexpensive, tasty (occasionally healthy) bites and the stand-and-order set up means you can pick your own eating situation—perched on a park bench, stretched out on a picnic blanket or enjoying a slow stroll by the lake. Dress casual with a denim vest and tasseled or fringed leather bucket bag, then add colour with a printed chiffon skirt or pair of flowy trousers. Wooden block heels are comfortable and accentuate your legs, but a leather sandal or flatform work equally well. Mix and match the metals in your jewellery for a look that’s thoughtful but not too perfect.
