Date night, the night you look forward to all week, possibly all month. A chance to go out on the town with your special someone, and enjoy your time with each other and fight for together. Where it used to be that date night was reserved for those new couples who were just starting out, today date night is being enjoyed by couples who have been together for years, and even married couples. It’s that chance to put the stress of the week aside and just relax with one another.
So, whether you’re getting ready for the first date with someone new, or you’ve been married 15 years and you’re looking forward to a night out without the kids, obviously you want to look your absolute best. Well, ladies, we’ve got you covered with all your date night essentials that will ensure you look stunning.
That Little Black Dress
If there is ever a time to break out that little black dress, date night is that time. Surveys have revealed that 49% of men prefer women to wear a dress on a date. Women’s dresses can be found in just about any length, style, and color, which mean there is something perfect out there waiting for you. If you’re looking to turn the head of your significant other, then go for something unique like an off-the-shoulder style or a cold shoulder. 51% of men are likely to remember the style of dress their date was wearing, so make sure the dress you pick is a memorable one!
Leather is Always a Great Option
One fabric you can’t go wrong with when it comes to date night is leather. The only tip is that you don’t want to go overboard and dress in head-to-toe leather. Pick one item such as a pair of slim leather pants, a pencil skirt, or leather jacket and then pair it with other fabrics. Leather oozes sex appeal and high-fashion, so it’s always a winner.
Go for Polished Looking Separates
Another look that tends to score big is polished separates. What this means is pairing something a bit more elegant and polished, with something on the more casual side. A perfect example would be to pair a fitted elegant blazer with a casual t-shirt. You’ll have no problem finding casual women’s tops in various colors and prints, which mean you’ll probably want to opt for a solid color blazer.
Don’t Forget the Accessories
Of course, no look is complete without the accessories to tie it together and River Island has you covered with a huge selection of women’s bags – purses and women’s shoes. They even have statement-making women’s wear, so you could technically do all your shopping in one spot.
For an extra look of style and fashion, go ahead and mix textures. For example, a velvet clutch purse would pair beautifully with a pair of high-heeled leather boots, and a couple of chunky gold bangle bracelets. When you mix and match the accessories it gives the look of high-fashion.
By using these style tips you’re sure to hit the perfect note on your next date night looking both sexy and fashionable.
