Best date night dresses & outfit ideas
The dinner & drinks date
When in doubt, go for a little black dress every time. We love this sleek LBD from Club L London. With its plunge neck and belted waist it’s so flattering, and the long sleeves make it feel autumn/winter-appropriate. Add tights if it’s really cold, patterned if you want to stand out.
Hot Breeze mini dress, £55, Club L London via Klarna Pay in 3 or Pay in 30 Days
Falke Dot 15 denier point d'esprit tights, £21, Net-a-Porter
The casual drinks date
If you feel amazing in your favourite jeans, be that slouchy or skinny, pairing them with a top and blazer is a fail-safe for a first date or more casual meeting. Keep it effortless with a sleek and tactile top like this silk Reformation number, paired with a slightly oversized blazer.
Lucrezia top, £130, Reformation
Double-breasted blazer, £59.99, Mango

The daytime date
Valentine's Day might be a few months away yet but Nobody’s Child’s new heart print midi dress could not be more appropriate for a daytime date, don’t you think? Wear it with white trainers or toughened up with chunky boots.
Fearne Cotton Evie midi dress, £49, Nobody's Child
The really fancy date
Going somewhere super fancy like the opera? This breathtaking maxi dress from Needle & Thread features layers upon layers of ruffles in a rich red colourway. Swoon.
Willow red gown, £465, Needle & Thread
