It’s date night—or maybe it’s a girl’s night out. Or maybe it’s even a solo girl’s night in, but you still want to look your best while you eat ice cream and watch a movie. No matter the reason, when you want to give yourself a look that’s polished (but still the right amount of casual), you might find yourself spending more time staring at the closet than actually enjoying yourself.

Fortunately, fashion pros know the secrets to crafting that just-right date night/girl’s night out/girl’s night in look—and few know them better than Heidi Klum. Real Simple checked in with the multihyphenate fashion figure for her tips on crafting an outfit to be proud of for almost any occasion.

Klum’s six stylish suggestions can go from brunch to a casual, getting-to-know-you dinner to movie night and back again without breaking a sweat, which means you can focus on enjoying yourself, not how your outfit looks.
