The Date Edit

Date night dressing – the biggest predicament of all. It’s a dressing dilemma: what to wear?

You want to look good – but you don’t want to look like you’ve made too much effort. Finding the balance is key to nailing that date outfit. Here are our top tips for effortless date night dressing…

The Casual Date

Whether your date plans consist of a day out shopping with your girlfriends or a laid-back brunch date with that special someone, dressing casual can still be chic. Pairing capsule pieces with more casual items will ensure your outfit looks thought-out but you don’t feel overdressed. Finish your look with a simple pair of white sneakers – or a nude pair of pointed courts for that extra touch of femininity. Stylist’s Top Tip: Adding a designer handbag or statement coat to your everyday essentials, such as your favourite denim or a simple sweater, will always elevate your look.

The Evening Date

It doesn’t matter if it’s a first date or a fiftieth, there’s nothing like dressing up for date night – or even an evening out with your friends. Cue the champagne and a little black dress for the ultimate evening go-to or mix it up with an elegant jumpsuit for something a little different. Team simple silhouettes and block colours with dazzling accessories and add killer heels for a touch of date-night glam. Finish your look with a sweep of red lipstick and you’re ready to go! Stylist’s Top Tip: Wearing a solid colour will elongate your silhouette. For more shape try adding a belt to add definition to your waistline, in a contrasting colour.

Staying In

Wine, pizza and Netflix? Sometimes there’s really nothing better than a cosy night in. Whether you’re snuggling up on the sofa, or it’s a chick-flick movie marathon with your best friend, designer loungewear means you can be comfy and still look great! Think cosy Ugg slippers and a fleecy dressing gown – or for something a little more flirtatious opt for some Calvin Klein undies.
