With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, it’s time to start prepping for date night outfits and destinations. For both guys and girls, this season is all about layering to create sleek ensembles for the perfect date night. Models Kaylee Griffin and Kiersten Haylie showcased beautiful clothing from Krush boutique in Longview and models Tyinque Bratton and Neal Davis wore trendy men’s clothing from the Buckle, inside Longview Mall.

Charm magazine chose to take our date night photoshoot to downtown Kilgore, where there are numerous locations that will set the mood and provide tons of fun for you and your loved one. For a daytime date, visit Downtown D’Lites, an adorable café that will make you feel right at home. For an evening date, Jack Ryan’s Steak and Chophouse delivers an exquisite dining experience. Follow up your lunch or dinner date by visiting Kilgore Mercantile & Music, a cute music school and country store that offers hand-dipped ice cream. Then, browse some shops downtown and top your evening off by going to Loco Meaux, one of the newest breweries in East Texas, for a drink.

Thank you to Krush and Buckle for providing clothing, to our models for beautifully showcasing the outfits, and to downtown Kilgore businesses for opening their doors and providing the perfect locale for this fun photo shoot.
