Practical Style Guide: Perfect Garden Party Attire for Warmer Seasons

Practical Style Guide: Perfect Garden Party Attire for Warmer Seasons

Garden party outfits are not as restrictive as some may think, follow a few simple guidelines and you will be a flawless party guest! Garden party attire should be dressy but typically not too formal, effortless but not too casual. Flowing pretty fabrics are a great way to stay cool on those warmer days and pastels, whites and primary colours are a key component. Leave your dark hues at home and choose pieces that put a spring in your step! From colour pop pumps to elegant mules – our style guide offers practical advice on what to invest in this party season.

What is appropriate to wear to a garden party?

Outdoor gatherings can range from casual to formal, so pay special attention to the dress code on the invite. Garden party attire can include everything from feminine and flirty dresses and skirts to polished jumpsuits and trouser suits. Whatever you decide to wear, our selection of classic pumps are the ultimate garden party attire. Ghazal’s heeled pumps for every occasion are versatile and elegant as recently illustrated by UK radio DJ, TV presenter and actress Lilah Parsons when she attended London Fashion Week. Lilah’s choice of spring outfits showed how Pumps can effortlessly accentuate any look on demand. The former model was spotted FROW wearing Ghazal’s Inès pumps in nude with a bright yellow trouser suit in a bold daisy pattern. Then later, wearing a soft pale blue mid-length dress – both outfits that transfer easily to a garden party setting.

What not to wear to a garden party?

Garden parties are usually relaxed affairs, so opt for something comfortable but with a hint of elegance. On hot days perhaps avoid anything too tight but if you do, embrace the sheer trend in the form of tulle, organza, and mesh – a key trend this year. Assuming the party is not black tie, jeans can be acceptable to wear to an informal garden party – if you’re going for an understated look, one wardrobe staple that will tick the garden party dress code is slim fit dark jeans, white shirt, and a gorgeous classic stiletto. Stitch Fix brand ambassador Laura-Ann illustrated this look perfectly when she teamed her outfit with white Ines Pumps. To add a little more detail to your garden party outfits this season, our timeless patent leather pump with slim T-bar and ankle strap makes for great garden party attire. The iconic Jackie Pump in white or nude provides that touch of sophistication. Model Xiayan Guo opted for Jackie Pumps in black and white with a vampy floor length black gown ticking all the right boxes of an evening garden party dress code. If you want to add a pop of bold colour to an otherwise muted look, Ghazal’s Colour Pop collection is the perfect accompaniment. Pair any of these bold brights with a straight-legged trouser and you’ll be set apart in any crowd.

What is garden chic dress code?

For a classy chic look, a floral tee dress or mid length pastel skirt is always a great choice. If a dress isn’t your thing opt for lighter trousers with a classic white or grey tank and oversized blazer for the evening. Garden party outfits in lighter colours are great for a casual garden party with good weather! Pair with Mules to look and feel graceful without sacrificing comfort. Our Colette Mule in white are effortlessly feminine and flirty and the perfect match to garden party chic attire. Actress Nell Hudson showed how to transition between the seasons with ease when she wore Ghazal’s Colette in pink with a floral frock by designer Olivia Rubin, while Italian fashion and beauty influencer Rita Capparelli paired her pink Colette mules with an oversized black blazer and pastel silk skirt. Both perfect garden party outfits for 2023.

What are some casual garden party outfit ideas?

While many garden parties require dressier garden party attire, not everyone loves getting dressed up – and, a casual BBQ garden party need not be such a stylish event. In this case, you can ditch the heels to opt for flat shoes! Both the white or tan shades in our Sophie loafers are ideal for garden party attire and warmer weather. But, if you do prefer a little height yet still want to be comfortable, Mid-heels are a great option. Our Lisa Mid-heel in nude will complement many casual outfits while still allowing you to remain comfortable all day long. Houda, founder of Ghazal Paris, illustrated this look perfectly when she wore her Ines white pumps with an electric blue lace mini-dress to a private event.

Capsule Wardrobe: Women’s Shoes that Go with Everything

How do I start a capsule wardrobe?

A minimalist wardrobe, 10-item wardrobe or capsule wardrobe? There are a lot of different names and different approaches to building an excellent capsule wardrobe. But the concept is clear – select pieces that can be mixed and matched in a variety of ways and choose quality over quantity. From timeless staples like the iconic LBD or trench coat – here we explore the best shoes to pair with your wardrobe staples and what every woman needs in their wardrobe.

How do I start a capsule wardrobe?

Building an excellent capsule wardrobe takes time – a good starting point is to work out what you actually wear. What pieces you already have — and what you are missing. A thoughtfully pieced together minimalist wardrobe will last you many years so it’s worth building over time and investing in high-quality pieces that will stand the test of time. Black leggings, a leather jacket and boots are all essential for a capsule wardrobe and on-trend this season as grunge makes a return to the runways. Lou Lou ankle boots come in soft black leather, black patent, or white, with minimal details and will work perfectly with this look.


How many clothes should be in a capsule wardrobe?

Aim for between 10 and 15 pieces in your capsule wardrobe, with each item working hard by pairing with at least 2-3 other garments from your wardrobe staples. A pair of comfy smart loafers are a classic style that will last for years in your shoe closet. Sophie is perfectly sleek with everything from dresses to jeans. Pair flat shoes with tailored trousers, an oversized blazer, and a simple grey tank for an understated, undoubtedly chic look.

How many shoes should be in a capsule wardrobe?

When it comes to what shoes to invest in, a heeled sandal such as  Bella platform shoes will go with a multitude of outfits and stand the test of time. Pair with a maxi slip dress and minimalist earrings for the ultimate in sophistication. If you prefer a lower heel, try the Colette Mules in colour popping lime or orange. These classic pointed toe mules pair with an array of wardrobe essentials, effortlessly taking a white oversize shirt, blue jeans and a trench coat from low-key to well-groomed in a beat! Every capsule wardrobe should include some flat shoes – not just for days in the office, but for days out of office too! Pair flats with jeans or black tailored pants, a white tee and add an oversized tote bag for lunch with friends at the weekend.


How many outfits do you need in a capsule wardrobe?

Think about your capsule wardrobe as a story of your life – outfits for work and play! Match slim-leg pants, and tailored black blazer with a beautiful pair of mid-heels like the elegant Lisa slingbacks – and you have the perfect work-day outfit. Take the look from day to night by swapping for the Inès pumps in nude. Or, Ghazal’s most coveted Jackie pumps in black and white, which also pair with a variety of outfits including a classic LBD which should definitely feature as one of your wardrobe essentials – just add a slick of red lippy, and you’ll be ready to paint the town red.

What is a 10 piece capsule wardrobe?

A 10-piece capsule wardrobe is a ‘love-forever wardrobe’ consisting of items that will serve you all year round. The concept is quality over quantity, and purchasing items that can be mixed and matched in a variety of ways. This minimalist wardrobe should consist of investment pieces, or pieces that you might spend a little more money on, that you really love and can wear on repeat. A pair of barely-there mules will complete every evening-style, whether it’s cocktails with friends, a date night or a black-tie event. Pair the Vivienne transparent mules with a silk blouse, wide-leg pants, and a timeless watch. Every woman needs a pair of party shoes, and the Jackie 85 in silver are a brilliant staple to consider adding to your capsule wardrobe – metallics are so versatile, as they are essentially a neutral, meaning they go with absolutely everything. They’re eye-catching, and glamourous – making them an exceedingly good evening go-to. Wardrobe essentials we say!

When it comes to 2023 trends for spring clothes, there’s a lot to look forward to. Discover 10 spring outfits to look effortlessly stylish & fresh.

How do you look classy in spring?

A tailored suit in a bold colours or prints is an easy way to keep your spring outfit classy and chic, as recently illustrated by UK radio DJ, TV presenter and actress Lilah Parsons when she attended London Fashion Week.

For an evening spring outfit idea, there’s no higher sophistication than a classic black and white palate and Julia Sisto – co-founder of Sève, a digital workspace dedicated to fashion stylists and editors – owned this look when she was pictured wearing Ghazal’s Jackie 85 pumps with a beautifully embellished Gemy Maalouf frock to a private party in Paris.

What are the best spring outfits for women?

According to buyers, the fashion crowd will be split into two groups: those who embrace the sheer looks that swept the spring/summer 2023 runways, and those who take the understated route via maxi hemlines and sleek tailoring.  Regardless of which camp you’re in, a stylish mule can be a good option for those seeking a little more comfort than classic pumps provide, keeping a bit of height but with more stability mules look and feel graceful without sacrificing comfort! Actress Nell Hudson rocked this look when she wore Ghazal’s Colette mule in pink with a floral frock by designer Olivia Rubin and a red mini bag by Lulu Guinness at the Lanesborough Hotel in London.  If you buy one thing for your spring clothes wardrobe, make it a pair of multi-pocketed cargo pants and pair it with some women’s suede shoes for that “casual comfort” look, considered as one of the key spring outfit ideas for 2023.

What colours to wear in spring?

This year’s colour of the year, according to Pantone Color Institute’s Executive Director Leatrice Eiseman, is Viva Magenta. As Leatrice explained to Vogue magazine earlier in the year, “it’s brave, it’s fearless, it’s pulsating, and it promotes optimism and joy”. Artist Sophie Haber illustrated the spring clothes colour trend perfectly when she paired her Jackie 100 red suede pumps with a charcoal mini dress and red knitted cardi. From runway to retail, this season will also see a lot of classic green in many spring clothes, along with Lovebird which is a bright yellow-green – almost fluorescent – which you will see on many spring outfits this year. Exploring this season’s colour trends, French-Moroccan TV star Inès Tazi was spotted recently wearing Ghazal’s Lisa mid-heels in brown with a blush tone floral mini dress and cropped sage green blazer, matching the brown tones with her Louis Vuitton mini bag.

What spring outfit ideas can I wear on cooler days?

Despite warmer weather being on the horizon and spring outfits for women in stores now, there’s still a chill in the air so what better way to complement the look than with some flat shoes or boots that can effortlessly bridge the gap between winter and spring. Ghazal’s patent leather lace-up military style, Lou Lou, booties pair perfectly with a floral tea dress for a strong and assertive look, ensuring total comfort from dawn to dusk. Alternatively, if you’d prefer to keep a bit of height, a pointed toe mule with a kitten heel is effortlessly feminine and flirty – a look pulled off with aplomb by Influencer Giulia Romanelli who recently opted for the Colette mule in Light Blue to complete her spring outfit in Milan.

If you’re looking to enhance an understated look such as jeans with an oversized shirt – this year’s most-Googled pieces according to Google’s Year In Search Report – a pair of platforms will elevate even the simplest look. Ghazal’s Bella in green with open toe and classic stiletto heel are not only an iconic addition to your wardrobe but on colour trend for spring fashion in 2023. Sticking with the blue jeans trend as modelled by Kate Moss in the Bottega Veneta spring/summer 2023 show, lingerie and swimwear model Sarah Tarleton pairs her black Lee rhinestone embellished mules with cropped stonewash wide-leg jeans, a simple white blouse and a crystal embellished navy tank top.

9 Incredibly Chic & Simple Outfits You Can Wear on Rotation

What are some basic outfits?

One simple outfit idea that will be an object of desire this summer is the flannel shirt courtesy of Bottega Veneta – a must-have for one of your simple summer outfits to wear on those milder days. Pair with a sleek fitting maxi skirt or dress and add some flat shoes for that ultimate off-duty, relaxed easy outfit. Kate Ozerov, owner of fashion company Style & Snitch UK, illustrated the look effortlessly when she paired her white bohemian embroidered lace maxi skirt with a pair of Ghazal’s Chloe slider flat shoes in black faux fur whilst on vacay in Dubai recently. Or if you want that extra bit of height, mid-heels are a great alternative to flats. Insta-star and model Isabella Peschardt was photographed on a recent fashion shoot on the Amalfi Coast, Italy, wearing Ghazal’s gold Ramatuelle mid-heels. To add a little edge to your simple outfit, try toughening up this, try adding a pair of military-style boots – such as the Lou Lou in black leather – and throw a leather jacket over in the evening.

How can I look classy but simple?

Easy outfits can still turn heads and be classy at the same time. One trend that isn’t going anywhere this year is ‘casual comfort’ and nothing says comfort more than multi-pocketed cargo pants which were all over the spring/summer 2023 runways. Another simple outfit idea: pair with some women’s black shoes like Ghazal’s Bella classic stiletto to elevate this season’s look. Pumps can make simple outfits super classy, confirmed by digital content creator Zariana Robbins when she wore Ghazal’s iconic Inés 100 black pumps with a classy Simkhai maxi dress. With the Wimbledon Tennis Championships not far in sight, the event is known for scoring high in the style stakes. French/Moroccan TV star Ines Tazi paired a classic polka dot printed midi-dress with Ghazal’s classic Jackie 85 in black and white, oozing style and elegance centre court.

What are some simple summer outfits?

If you’re looking for some easy outfits to pull together this summer, one trend that will be huge this season is blue jeans and a white tank. To take the look from day to night pair with some pumps. Simple summer outfits for days in the office need to be comfortable but chic, a look that Julia Sisto – co-founder of Sève, a digital workspace dedicated to fashion stylists and editors – pulled off effortlessly when she paired her white Inés pumps with a fitted mid-length black and white hooped skirt and puff sleeve top on a trip to Paris. Or if you would prefer to opt for a lower-heel, try the Colette mules in a colour popping lime or orange.

How can I dress up some simple aesthetic outfits?

One of the key aesthetic outfits this year is grunge 2.0 – a fashion trend that should be on your radar in 2023. The Simone Rocha layered sequin-embellished black tulle skirt works perfectly with platforms. Regardless of whether you’re at work, at a party or out in the city – if you want the illusion of more height, platforms are a great addition to simple outfits. Ghazal’s Bella Red platform provide that extra bit of vamp to a grunge-inspired outfit. For a softer aesthetic, opt for a pair of pumps – as illustrated by artist and model Thais Wiggers at Elan Café in London where she was seen in her Inès pink colour pop collection pumps – timeless sophistication.

The Ultimate Guide to Finding Your Personal Style Once & For All

My Personal Style: Why can’t I find a style?

Finding your personal style is much more than just figuring out which clothes you prefer over others, it’s a journey – a process that can take decades! Discovering your personal style isn’t making a list of personal wardrobe rules, rather having fun with style, and experimenting with different looks to get a feel for what suits you best. What you feel good in! This practice will help you understand the core of your style identity and decide which pieces to invest in. Finding your personal style can be tricky with so many ever-changing trends, but the key is not to follow fashion. Yes, you can play with fashion, but to begin with, creating a capsule signature wardrobe is a great foundation!

Personal Style: What are some examples of personal styles?

There are many celebs who have enviable personal style such as Alexa Chung, Olivia Palermo, Sarah Jessica Parker, Jenny Walton, Victoria Beckham, Meghan Markle, Margot Robbie, The Olsen twins, Blake Lively, to name a few. The easiest way to discover your own personal style is to study some celebs you believe have a good look and take inspiration from your style icons. Save images on Instagram or screenshots on your mobile of looks you’d like to recreate or pieces you’d like to try. Then you can go about seeking similar items to build up your signature look.

Finding your personal style: Personal styles

How to develop your personal style? Experiment, experiment, experiment! Play with colours, cuts, fabrics, patterns, and fits. Start with getting the basics in place first, every wardrobe needs: Jeans, leggings, tailored pants, wide-leg pants, a few good quality t-shirts, tanks, camisole tops, a couple of pretty blouses, a classic white shirt, a good quality cardi, a chunky knit, an oversized blazer, leather jacket, trench coat, a wool coat, an LBD, a versatile maxi slip dress and then some versatile shoes! Flat shoes, trendy trainers,  pumps and boots are a good starting point.

What is the rule of style?

Looking for some inspiration for discovering your unique style? There’s an interesting fashion theory, known as the 2/3 rule of style – whereby one focuses on an outfit always being bottom-heavy; the top half of your look from the waist up is 1/3 of your look, whilst the waist down makes up the other 2/3. Therefore, you can let the top 1/3 do the talking, in the form of a patterned shirt or an eye-catching collar feature, whilst your shoes can act as the assertive factor of sophistication. In this vein, opt for classic, footwear that will stand the test of time, offering the versatility to pair with several your wardrobe pieces with little thought, allowing you to throw together outfits in a moment’s notice and pull off that well-put-together look.

How do I know which shoes will be a good investment?

You can’t go wrong with a pair of classic pumps and black are a must for every closet – see Ghazal’s women’s black shoes for some inspiration. If you prefer a little more height, then platforms are a great option, or if you’re not one for heels, mid-heels can be a happy medium, offering a little height but keeping your feet closer to the ground! Mules are also a wonderfully versatile shoe, easily elevating an outfit from casual, to elegant with very little effort. To add a pop of colour, but stay within the realm of timelessness, a colour that never goes out of fashion is red. A red shoe is sophisticated with a touch of sex appeal, and will pair simply with muted tones like cream, beige, grey, navy and black, as well as bold colours like orange, pink, blue tones and purple – see Ghazal’s women’s red shoes, perfect for creating a unique and sophisticated personal style.

If you’re making a statement, you’ll most likely have somewhere important to be, meaning comfort is key. Our signature Inès pumps are available across a broad colour palette – Olivia opted for our orange shade, embodying a fierce confidence alongside her lime Ellie Saab look during Paris Fashion Week. When taking the streets of New York, she opted for a muted option by pairing the Inès pumps in white to add a sleek edginess to her powder blue two piece.  Belonging to our Icon collection, the Inès pump offers a timeless gracefulness which will compliment any style.

Dress Shoes for Women: Elevate Your Look with These Stylish Formal Shoes

How to choose the most comfortable dress shoes for women? 

Effortlessly elevate your look with these classy formal shoes

Dress shoes for women are far more flexible than one might imagine, as a dress shoe can essentially be any style you would wear to the office, a wedding, even a dinner party – or indeed any occasion you want to look a little extra polished. Every woman’s closet needs at the very least one pair of dress shoes that are versatile enough to match with your wardrobe staples.

Which shoes are best for formal wear?

There are many occasions were looking elegant is key, maybe for an upcoming summer soiree, a special evening event or maybe even a job interview but choosing the right formal shoes for women can feel a little overwhelming. Timeless formal heels, such as our Inès pumps are a classic wardrobe must-have available in both muted and colour pop tones, but if you’re looking for comfortable dress shoes, mid-heels or mules can be a great alternative. Ghazal’s crystal-embellished Ramatuelle are a gorgeous option, as they perfectly balance glamour and comfort. Mid heels still have the power to create a beautiful silhouette providing a confidence boost, while staying comfortable too. If you want to make a statement, consider the bolder colours like fuchsia pink or gold.

What formal shoes can I wear instead of heels?

A day-to-night outfit can save you a lot of time when you need to work late but want to go out with friends in the evening. Formal flat shoes can effortlessly bridge work and play, which is why a trendy, preppy loafer is a good option if you don’t fancy wearing a heel. Regardless of whether you’re running errands, going out for dinner with friends or attending a work event, a pair of formal flat shoes can still feel very stylish. Elevate any outfit with our soft nappa-leather loafers, Sophie, or Ghazal’s iconic flat slides, Chloe, work perfectly for warmer occasions.

How do you dress professionally without heels?

Formal wear will continue to be redefined in the following years but finding the right balance between comfort and a formal look can be tricky. Does it mean that formal heels are still a must-have? Not necessarily. In women’s wardrobes, where dresses have long ruled both office and eveningwear, a new take on the trouser suit has emerged – especially the peg trouser. And what better way to complement the look than with a more formal flat shoe, like our patent leather ankle-boot, Lou Lou. This lace-up military style will make you feel strong and assertive in total comfort from dawn to dusk. Discover more elegant work shoes that every woman should own.

What are the most comfortable dress shoes for women?

Fancy restaurants, business meetings, and formal events, all tend to require more formal dress shoes for women.  A stylish mule can be a good option for those seeking a little more comfort than classic formal heels provide, keeping a bit of height but with more stability mules look and feel graceful without sacrificing comfort! A pointed toe mule with a kitten heel is effortlessly feminine and flirty, which is why Ghazal’s Colette silhouette, which comes in a handful of gorgeous hues including light blue, lime and pink, can elevate any outfit.

How to Clean Shoes

Polish, Clean & Protect Your Shoes In a Proper Way

How can I clean my shoes at home?

Ghazal products are handcrafted using the highest quality materials. Our intention is not only to create beautiful pieces that will transcend time through timeless style, but durability with the correct care. This guide is a reference for how to clean shoes at home.

White shoe box logo

Storage: We recommend storing your Ghazal shoes in their satin care bags placed inside a shoebox, away from direct sunlight and heat. Shoes with crystal rhinestones and/or metal hardware should be kept in such a way that the accessories are not leaning on any outer fabric of the shoes which could create indentation.


Shape: Over time, your shoes will naturally begin to mould to the shape of your foot however, to maintain the shape and longevity of your shoes we recommend stuffing your Ghazal shoes with either white tissue paper or using a shoe tree.

The shoe-making process

Heels: Through extensive wear the heel tips of your Ghazal pumps, mid-heels, mules and platforms shoes may begin to deteriorate. We recommend changing heel tips as they start to wear, ahead of when the inner heel begins to show. This not only protects the heel, but also ensures your stability when wearing your heels and will help retain the shape of the shoe. Heel tips can be changed quickly and with ease via a reputable cobbler.


Soles: The soles of your Ghazal shoes are made from a smooth, delicate leather that will be subject to marking from the first wear. This is not a manufacturing fault, it’s normal wear and tear of a leather sole shoe. We recommend avoiding walking on wet surfaces, as this could alter the structure of the soles and may even lead to staining of the upper.

For our chunky sole boots we advise to remove any surface dirt by simply wiping with a clean, damp cloth. We strongly do not recommend replacing the Ghazal original soles as this may alter the entire structure of the shoes.

The shoe-making process

Embellishments: Rhinestone crystals and metal detailing on Ghazal shoes are delicately placed by hand. Therefore, it’s important to ensure any hardware embellishments are kept out of contact of the upper fabrication as this may cause the material to indent, scratch, or tear.

Ensure the shoes are stored in their care bags in such a way that the crystals do not come into contact with any part of the fabric.

We recommend avoiding contact with any liquids such as water, alcohol, oils, and solvents. Should any hardware embellishments encounter any liquid, pat dry with a cloth immediately.

Lining:  To preserve the lining of your Ghazal shoes, gently remove any surface dirt with a clean damp cloth.

How do you deep clean dirty shoes? In the case your ghazal shoes become soiled, we recommend taking them to a reputable cobbler to have them professionally cleaned.

How to clean leather shoes

As with all animal skins, Nappa leather will naturally wrinkle and soften with age. You can gently remove surface dirt using a clean, dry, soft cloth.

How to polish shoes: We recommend using a neutral leather conditioner to maintain the softness of the leather however, we strongly encourage you to spot test the product before applying all over the leather. Ensure shoes are thoroughly dry before wear.

Metallic leather: This particularly delicate form of leather uses a laminated finish to provide a smooth and glossy surface which makes it particularly sensitive to marking, so we recommend avoiding contact with any abrasive objects and surfaces. To clean, gently remove surface dirt with a clean, dry, soft cloth. Do not apply any leather care products on metallic leather.

How to clean suede shoes

Gently remove surface dirt and unify the pile of the fabric with a soft suede brush. To maintain the richness of colour, always store Ghazal shoes in their care bags away from any direct light or heat.

As an extra measure, we encourage using a waterproofing spray to help protect the suede from any light water contact. Remember to always spot test products first to ensure colourfastness.

How to clean patent leather shoes

Patent leather is achieved through a varnish coating providing a durable outer layer for your shoes and the smooth, glossy appearance. To maintain the gloss of patent leather, use a soft cloth to gently remove any surface dirt. Due to the sensitivity to colour transfer, ensure you store Ghazal patent leather shoes in their care bags away from any other leather materials, direct light and heat.

Glitter leather: Glitter covered fabrics or leather may have a sparkly yet coarse surface, therefore we advise to avoid contact with abrasive objects or surfaces as abrasion may lead to a loss of glitter. Do not apply any leather care products to glitter covered shoes. You can gently remove surface dirt with a clean, dry, soft cloth. If the shoes become wet leave them to dry naturally away from heat and sunlight.

The process of cleaning shoes

How to clean satin fabric shoes

Our luxurious satin is sourced for the highest quality, and durability however, being a naturally delicate fabric, we highly recommend avoiding contact with sharp or abrasive objects and surfaces that may cause the satin to snag or tear.

Satin shoes with crystal embellishments should be stored in their care bags in such a way that the crystals do not come into contact with any part of the satin fabric. Contact with liquids are likely to cause the satin to stain, therefore it is important to keep your shoes away from rain, alcohol, oil and any other liquids.

How do you clean Ghazal flats shoes made of fabric? You can gently remove surface dirt by using a clean, dry, soft cloth although, a waterproofing spray may help protect the satin from light water contact. Reminder: Always spot test products before applying to your Ghazal shoes to ensure colourfastness.

4 Date Night Outfits Ideas

with Shoes You Will Fall in Love with

The art of the date night outfit

We all love to get dressed up every now and again, and date night is a golden opportunity to spruce yourself up for the night and feel amazing. Whether you’re planning to celebrate Valentine’s Day, or ‘Galentine’s’ for the single ladies, we all know a date starts way before the date actually starts! So, what should a woman wear on a date night?

Plan ahead: Date night outfit ideas

A date night outfit has no rules other than making you feel confident, sexy, and flirty… But, as shoe lovers over here, we believe that every outfit starts from the ground up! So, before we start with date night outfits, let’s talk date night shoes and the logistics of the date. Is this a dinner date? A causal date? A walking date? And most importantly, what’s the weather like?

If you’re planning a night out for dinner and drinks with moderate weather, your wardrobe is your oyster, but if you’re wondering, how can I look seductive without trying? Our signature style, the Jackie pump from our Icon collection is an elegant silhouette featuring a T-bar strap with discreet silver buckle, available in in a number of colourways with three heel heights, including a comfortable mid-heel, is quietly glamourous yet versatile enough to pair with almost anything.

If you’re someone who, while wearing high-heels is always thinking to yourself, I hope the next bar isn’t too far away, then a more walkable heel such as Platforms could be the answer. Our Bella platforms give the illusion of a heel, but feel far more comfortable than a stiletto.

Casual date outfit

What do you wear to a casual date night? For some this can seem tricker than a romantic dinner, as your trustee LBD is out of the window if you’re doing causal, but that doesn’t mean heels have to be! Instead of opting for a high heel, try going for some Mid-heels or Mules instead. You get the bonus of a little height, which can do wonders for making you feel a little sassy, but also appear more laid back for a casual date night outfit. Either style pairs easily with jeans, leaving you endless options for what to add on top to either dress your look up a little or tone it right down.


What to wear on a walking date

That being said, if you are going on a date where you’re likely to be doing a fair amount of walking, heels are generally not recommended for your date outfit.  Although if a little heel is a must, then the Colette mule could still be a great option. Otherwise, casual flat shoes such as the Sophie loafer, in any of the hues can easily compliment a pared back look. Think jeans, cigarette pants or an A-line skirt paired with a classic white tee, silk camisole, soft cashmere cardi, or for a little more pizzaz maybe an embellished blouse. As day turns to night, simply slip your feet into a pair of timeless pumps such as the Jackie T-bar or the Inès court style, and you’ll elevate your look ready to head to a bar.
