Style Advisor: Date Night Dressing

It’s date night. But what to wear? A question that is beyond clichéd, but like many a hackneyed phrase, has a lot of truth in it. There is nothing worse than coming to your wardrobe the night of a date (be it your first, second, or fiftieth) and finding, to your stylish dismay, that you have nothing to wear. Whether you’re in it for the long haul or this is your first encounter, you met at school or it’s your fifteenth bumble date in two months, feeling good matters, and looking good is a big part of that. Get ready for romance with our guide to date night dressing.

PLAYFUL FLIRTATION

Call us superficial, but a great handbag is more than compensation for a disappointing date. Hopefully you won’t need any and romance will blossom in your playfully rebellious Valentino knit and statement Jimmy Choo’s.

EFFORTLESS CHIC

Confidence is everything on a date, and a directional silhouette in easy neutral shades will ensure you feel comfortable. February is the month of love, so fall head over heels in a killer pair of shoes, like these powder-blue sandals by Giuseppe Zanotti.

SOPHISTICATED GLAMOUR

A date calls for an outfit with sex appeal that doesn’t give too much away. Mysterious and sophisticated, opt for all-black Gucci trousers and a sheer top like DSquared2’s seductive tulle bodice. Wear with Giuseppe Zanotti’s high-octane metallic accessories – fun but refined.

THE ELEGANT LBD

If you want to pull out all the stops but are cautious of over-doing at, a failsafe LBD is the perfect date-night option. Court romance with modern glamour courtesy of MSGM’s sleek and chic one-shoulder dress and Valentino’s Rockstuds.
