Getting your hair to play nice, making sure your makeup is on point, checking (and re-checking) that there’s nothing in your teeth—date night can be stressful enough without worrying about finding the perfect date night dress. That’s why we’re saving you from the dreaded closet deep-dive and swooping in with curated a collection that’s sure to make you swoon.
Whether you want maximum wow-factor for that upscale cocktail lounge you’ve been dying to try, or you’re keeping it cool for a laid-back dinner for two, these versatile date night women’s dresses are guaranteed to have all eyes on you.
#1 Classic Meets Crochet in an Updated LBD
Take your classic little black dress—but give it a boho makeover. Dress it up with a pair of dangly earrings, a suede bag with fringe, and strappy heels. Or keep the vibe casual with a cute crocheted wrap, sandals, and a bangle bracelet or two. Either way, the black crochet neckline adds a hint of lacy glam.
#2 Figure-Flattering Minimalism
Simple, refined, and timeless, a knit midi dress with tank-style straps and a sexy slit up the side works for everything from cocktails with the cutie you swiped right on to a gallery opening with the gals. A wide, square neckline creates an elegant decolletage, while figure-hugging black knit works overtime to highlight your curves. To add a subtle touch of sparkle while keeping your look minimal—and effortlessly classy—style it with:
- Your favorite layering necklaces
- Medium-sized hoops
- A small cross-body bag or clutch
#3 Fall Stripes for Flirty Fun
Looking for more of a summer fun date night outfit? We love a midi, fitted dress in a playful print like this sporty stripe. The V-neckline, side slit, and flirty shoulder ties add a sweet touch, while still keeping things low-key. Slip into a pair of open-toed chunky heels, grab a clutch in a matching hue, and don a delicate necklace to finish the look. You’ll be ready for any summery outing, whether it’s a jaunt to the lake or a stroll through the shops.
#4 Ruched and Ready For Anything
Ruching is a trendy way to wear form-fitting styles that play up your curves while disguising any little imperfections you’d rather not highlight.1 A ruched midi in a neutral taupe will flatter just about any skin tone and body type. This style is stretchy and comfortable, yet gives an upscale flair that’s ready to take you from dinner to dancing without missing a beat. Pair it with a clutch in a harmonious tone, airy jewelry, and a pair of suede heels to complete the ensemble.
#5 Think Pink
When you’re ready to channel your inner Barbie with a little more va-va-voom, a satiny mini dress in a bold statement color is a surefire show-stopper. Structured shoulders paired with a blousy bodice and a nipped-in waistline create a shapely yet tasteful silhouette. Pair it with:
- Oversized hoops
- A dainty gold necklace
- A sexy, strappy heel
You’ll be all set for salsa-dancing or a wedding in the tropics.
#6 Stars in Your Eyes
A floaty, ethereal mini dress in a star-studded print lets you keep it dreamy and dainty without losing your modern edge. Asymmetrical sleeves and an off-the-shoulder neckline make the look fresh, alluring, and up-to-date, while a full-flounced skirt and ruffled bodice create a feminine silhouette that plays up your curves. Style it with sparkly studs, an understated heel in a neutral tone, and a simple clutch, allowing the dress to be the star of the show. This look demands a romantic dinner—complete with candlelight and cabernet.
#7 Maximum Color
A belted, flowy maxi dress or high-low dress is a wardrobe go-to for good reason: It’s comfortable, fashionable, and flattering to every figure. Add a whimsical, color-drenched take on a classic leopard print, and you’ve got a standout look that’s ready for wherever date night takes you. Try pairing it with a statement necklace and a chain strap bag to keep the look on trend. A delicate heel in a neutral tone balances the length of the dress and keeps the look from feeling heavy. When the fall breeze starts blowing, swap out those heels for a booties with dress look.
#8 Vibrant and Versatile
The ultimate in versatility, a sleeveless midi in an eye-catching color can be styled for almost any occasion, from a swanky dinner to a festive summer fête. We like them in a textured, ribbed knit bodycon dress that clings to your curves, with a high neckline to bring attention up to your face. Style it with a funky, detailed clutch and simple jewelry to let the color tell the story. Add a simple heel to help the oh-so-flattering midi hemline accentuate and elongate your calves.
#9 Cut Out For Adventure
When the occasion calls for a look that makes waves, you can’t go wrong with a chic midi silhouette in a bold color pairing, punctuated by sassy side cutouts. From the front, a crew neck and stretchy ribbed knit gives a cool, polished vibe, while the wide open back creates the illusion of a two-piece set. Match it with an equally bold crossbody bag with a metallic strap, and a strappy kitten heel to tie it all together.
