Keep Calm and Watch Disney Movies.
That was my motto as a little girl.
My favorite was actually Beauty & the Beast. According to my mom, I watched it repeatedly everyday from 2 to 3 years old in my jammies (aka pajamas) on those old things called VHS tapes. That must have been crazy lol, endlessly rewinding the video content at a super slow pace.
However, that wasn’t the only movie memory I treasured.
I remember when my family and I used to go to the drive-in on Friday nights. We were all decked out in our comfy casual clothes, ready to watch the latest movie releases that had made it to our tiny island.
In either situation, I was dressed for the occasion so I figured that the same thing applies to life today.
20 Movie Night Outfit Ideas
What sparked this trip down memory lane?
The Beauty & the Beast movie launch this past Friday.
Whether you’re going to have a movie night in with the girls or a casual date night, here are 20 surprisingly brilliant ways to dress for a movie.
(1) Overalls & Plaid
Resurrect your overalls and then tie a plaid button down shirt around your waist to create a fun outfit. It’s perfect for a casual night out in the Spring or Summer.
(2) Lightweight Pieces
These two sister bloggers from Puerto Rico offer a unique way to style lightweight pieces on their blog, Colorful Disaster. Take notes, especially if you live in warmer temperatures!
(3) Peak-A-Boo Blouse
Take a style cue from Dominique of The Style Domination. As she said in one of her latest fashion posts, “dominate your chic comfortable style” with a peek-a-boo shoulders top like this one from Sympli.
(4) Full On Denim
I can’t stress enough how much of a go-to a full denim look can be for any fashionista. Don’t believe me? Check out how Maya Kelley from The Kelley Doll styles the classic denim on denim ensemble.
(5) Kimono & White
It’s Spring right now! So why not bring out the florals and dare to wear shorts with stylish wedges? Look to Taste Treaty for a great example of this type of look.
(6) Pink Skirt & A Leather Jacket
Do you love mixing soft and hard pieces? Or, do you want to try it for the first time? You can literally copy the outfit below that was styled by Liz from Downtown Demure.
(7) Easy, Breezy Stripes
Create effortless street style with a striped dress like Leslie from Haute Mommie.
(8) Pretty In Pink
Yes, you read that right. It’s another pink outfit idea but this time with an off-the-shoulder top! Besides the fact that this beauty, Candace, is from my second home in Columbus, OH – her outfit is an affordable option for your casual night out.
(9) Harem Pants & A Crop Top
Looking for some curvy women fashion inspiration? Tap into your nautical instincts like Gabi Fresh.
(10) Luxe PJs
After reading Stylish Lee’s post about adoring herself on Valentine’s Day, I fell in love with the idea of dressing the part even when spending the night in. If you’re anything like me and like to spend some time by yourself every now and then for self-care, this luxe pajama outfit is for you.
(11) Onesie Chic
A onesie is perfect for the infamous ‘Netflix and Chill’ night. It’s comfortable and requires little to no makeup!
(12) Print Blues
Let’s not forget that there’s always room for a colorful print dress, especially when going to the movies. Amber from All The Cute opted to wear hers on a warm, sunny day in March! Doesn’t she look wonderful?
(13) Bold & Beautiful
That simply means that wearing a bold and colorful dress is another doable way to dress for a movie. And if you happen to see a bright wall around, snap an unforgettable photo like Ianthia Smith from Miniskirts & Microphones.
(14) Flirty & Sporty
Can you tell that pink is the color of the moment? It could be that I’m just obsessed with it. Nevertheless, with Carolyn Carter’s flirty and sporty dress below, could you blame me?
(15) Leather on Leather
Any leather addicts here? Then this is the outfit for you!
(16) Choker & An Oversized Shirt
You know those super long shirts in the stores these days? Those are perfect for a casual night out look! To accessorize, all you’d need is a choker. Patricia from Chic and Cherry pulls it off effortlessly.
(17) Floral Power
(18) 90’s Inspired
Are you recently pregnant? That doesn’t mean that you have to sacrifice your style. Take a cue from Dilieny Rodriguez of Love, Fashion & Friends, and channel your 90’s inspired style with a bodycon dress and platform sneakers.
(19) Fuzzy Sweater Style
If it’s still a little chilly where you are, pair a fuzzy sweater with skinny jeans like Alexa from Fashion Revolutionary.

Has the recent fishnets trend peaked your interest? Good! Take notes on how to rock this new accessory with blue jeans from Michelle of J’Adore Mi Amor.
