what to wear - winter date

Hey boyfriend, I got a comment from Angie who has a date on Sunday. She needs advice on what to wear. Can you give some thoughts from a man's perspective?
BF says: You have to feel good in what you're wearing because confidence is key. Most guys don't really understand fashion, as long as it looks like you put some effort in to it and didn't just throw on a baggy shirt (like my first date with Trish) then it will send him the right message. You want to look sophisticated and sexy, but not slutty. Be weather appropriate. A mini-skirt in the winter is trying too hard. 

What do you think of layers?
BF says: Layers are good. Especially in the winter. But there should be a fitted layer in there somewhere that accentuates your figure. You don't want to wear six baggy layers.

I think a small bag would be better, it's flexible to all venues. 
BF says: Yes, go small. You don't want to look like you're living our of your bag. Unless you actually do. Then he has the right to know beforehand that you are in fact, homeless.

BF says: Wear them

And make up?
BF says: Make up is individual-specific, but it's better to err on the side of less. You don't want him to be shocked when he wakes up.
(Trish adds: in the future) (BF adds: or that night, if his game is tight)

We both agree on wearing jewelry. I suggest dangly earrings because they frame your face and it's flirty.

Here are some images we picked, we turned to our most datable girl, Jessica Alba et al. Mix and match according to time of date and degree of casualness.

have fun angie! at the end of the day,
it's about the chemistry and enjoying the company. ;)
I have to go to work today, fashion week is coming up~
but I will try to squeeze in hair and make up for you soon as I can.
thanks for asking!
