If you're after an amazing date night dress, you've come to the right place because we've searched for the most head turning dresses on the virtual high-street. Whether you're shopping for a special anniversary dinner or you're just looking for ideas for a first date, hopefully you'll find what you're looking for.
We've leaned into the idea of romance with red dresses, cute heart shape cutouts and sexy thigh-splits. You might want to dress your sexiest, but if you're about to go on a date with someone new, you might not be ready for cut-outs, bodycon and sheer fabric. Hopefully we've found a nice mix of styles that will inspire your date night outfit.
How we chose the best date night dresses
- Accommodating different ages: Trying to find date night dresses to cater for all age groups is no mean feat. Whether you're a 20-something, a 30-something, a 40-year-old, or in your fifties (or older!), hopefully you'll find a dress within the mix for your date.
- Price: Some of the date night dresses are on sale, some are quite the splurge, and some are your even stocked on Amazon. We can only give you ideas for your date night look, and you can figure out if it matches your budget. We've gone for affordable options from ASOS, Zara, New Look and Boohoo.
- Dressy vs Casual: Do we think all dates are at lavish restaurants or fancy five-star hotels? No. We're quite aware that you might want to wear a dress with tights and boots because you're going to Nando's, but we wanted this feature to look as classy and Pinterest-worthy as possible. A lot of these dresses can be styled up in a more casual way, but the majority are to be worn as evening wear attire.
