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.
Winter date night outfits
How do you wear heels in winter? Okay, so black heels are practically a given. No winter wardrobe is complete without a pair of trustee black pumps. Inès is a timeless style from our Icon collection that adds a touch of glamour to any look available in a sumptuous soft black suede and an array of other shades, these versatile pumps are available with an 85mm or 100mm heel.
