Are you in a rut with your date night outfits? I’ve got a few easy formulas to help you put together something easy AND special for date night.
Date night outfits don’t have to be boring!
I love getting a little dressed up for date nights and putting a bit more effort into my date night outfits. Since the rest of my life is fairly casual, date night is a good chance to spice things up with my wardrobe.
I love putting on a pair of heels or wedges, or just some fun flats, and adding a jacket when it’s a little cooler in the evening.
I’ve got some major date night outfit inspiration for you
Check out these date night outfit formulas that you can put together as we head into fall.
Date night outfit formula #1: A dress and heels or boots
A dress is always a good option if you’re headed to a nice dinner or the theater for a production. A dress that’s made of soft, stretchy fabric will keep you comfortable AND chic. Toss on a fitted jacket (blazer, leather jacket, suede jacket, or denim jacket all work great) if you need a layer to keep you warm.
Date night outfit formula #2: Dressed up jeans
Dress up your jeans for date night! These are a few easy ways to dress up your jeans:
- Wear your jeans with a nice top (a button down, ruffle sleeve top, lace top, or nice sweater all work!)
- Choose nice shoes (heels, heeled sandals, nice ankle boots, embellished flats)
- Pair with a nice jacket (suede, leather, bomber, or blazer are all good choices)

Date night outfit formula #3: Try something unexpected
Ok, this is less of a formula, but I’ll give you some good ideas below. This is where it’s fun to add some personality to your look and have fun with pieces in your closet that you wouldn’t wear otherwise.
You can wear a t-shirt or a sweater ANY day of the week, so take the chance to rock your leather leggings or a jumpsuit for date night.
I hope that gives you some great ideas for date nights!
Remember, getting creative with your closet makes getting dressed more fun. And date night is a great place to play around with fun, new outfits.
