10 Stunning Date Night Outfits For 2023
2023 is the year of passion, romance, and love – including self-love! Whether you’re going on a first date, a date with a partner of twenty years, or taking yourself out on a solo date, here are some of my favorite easyand go-to date-night outfits sure to turn heads in 2023.
1. Leather leggings & a sweater
This is the perfect edgy yet feminine date-night outfit. Leather is a sensual and chic texture, and the sweater adds a demure touch. Follow the law of balances by pairing slim-fit leggings with a chunky sweater. Add cute ankle boots for height and statement jewelry to tie it all together. Check out more leggings outfit ideas here.
Psst… Faux leather is just as beautiful as traditional leather, and it’s a more sustainable and eco-friendly option.
2. Little black dress
You can never go wrong with an LBD. The classic little black dress is a staple in every woman’s wardrobe. The right black dress can make you feel confident, sexy, and beautiful. Opt for a silhouette that highlights your best features. Pair it with minimalist jewelry and statement heels for a chic, sophisticated look.
Jumpsuits are super versatile. They can take you from work to happy hour and from date night at a fancy restaurant to dancing at a local jazz club. Jumpsuits have become a wardrobe staple because they’re an entire outfit built into one piece – you don’t have to worry about matching your top and bottom. Just add accessories and shoes, and you’ve got a stunning date-night outfit in a pinch.
Rompers have a similar vibe as jumpsuits, but they’re a better option for warmer weather. They are also a little more casual and fun because of their shorter length. You can go for a romper with an eye-catching pattern or something more neutral and understated. Dress up a romper for date night with heels and a clutch!
Psst… Shop around to find the perfect romper silhouette for your body type. Different styles will look best on different women, so don’t get discouraged if you don’t find the perfect romper right away.
5. Asymmetric blouse with jeans
If you want to wear jeans to your date night, consider adding visual intrigue with an asymmetrical or off-the-shoulder blouse. If you don’t feel your best in an asymmetrical top, try out a blouse with a bold color or print. A unique top can do the heavy lifting for your outfit, making the rest of your look simple and easy to throw together.
6. Slip dress
A classic slip dress is my favorite choice for date night. It’s sultry and feminine yet still sophisticated and stylish. It hugs your body in all the right places while leaving a lot to the imagination. Plus, the slip dress is super versatile: you can dress it up with heels and a string of pearls or dress it down with sneakers and a denim jacket. I always feel confident and sexy in a slip dress!
7. Pencil skirt & blouse
The pencil skirt is a workwear classic, but it’s equally as beautiful for date night. Pencil skirts are figure-flattering on most women, so you can go from owning the boardroom to giggling with your date with just a retouch of makeup. Pair your favorite pencil skirt with a silky blouse and heels for a more formal date or add a tucked-in sweater and ankle boots for a casual night on the town.
8. Pleated midi & blouse
Not a fan of the pencil skirt? Try a pleated midi skirt instead! Pleated midi skirts are timelessly elegant but still fresh and modern. Metallic pleated skirts have been trending recently, but I’m still a fan of the classic champagne, off-white, or black that go with everything in your closet. Wear kitten heels and pearls for a classic aesthetic or opt for Converse and a graphic tee for a casual lunch date.
9. Ruffle dress
I love ruffle detailing for date night – there’s something about ruffles that’s so playful, flirtatious, and sweet. Whether you opt for a mini dress with frilly sleeves or a maxi with cascading ruffles down the skirt, you’re sure to turn some heads.
10. Lace (a 2023 date-night must-have)
Lace is effortlessly romantic. Any touches of lace will do the trick, whether it’s a classic lace shirt with black jeans or a little black dress with lace detailing. Lace is formal yet casual and royal yet down-to-earth, and it has the unique ability to make you feel like the main character of your own life. Find your new favorite lace piece with our Lace Affair collection.
Kimonos have become a new must-have for many women. These stunning pieces work beautifully for date night. Try pairing a dramatic, floor-length kimono with a slip dress or over skinny jeans and a tank top. The kimono adds a touch of glamor and drama to an otherwise simple and grounded outfit.
