Effortless & Elevated Date Night Outfit Ideas

Are you wondering what to wear for a date night? Whether you’re heading out to the movies or planning a romantic evening at a fancy restaurant, we have the pieces for you. Dress to impress and showcase your personality when you plan ahead with a few effortless and elevated date night outfit ideas.

1.Formal Date Night

If you’re heading out for a fancier dinner, you’ll want to make sure that your ensemble fits the vibe of the place with a sophisticated, slightly elevated feel.

Formal Dresses

A formal dress is always a safe choice when going out to a nice restaurant. All of our formal dresses offer a classic silhouette that’s enhanced with contemporary details. Whether you love the time-tested a-line dress or you want to stand out with a more form-fitting piece, you’ll always make a splash with a Crescent design, as our pieces blend materials like vegan leather and knit with details like cut-outs and asymmetry.

Jumpsuits have really come out strong from the gate since they transitioned from a man’s utilitarian wardrobe essential to the women’s style sphere. They are one of our favorite date night outfits as they’re simple to accessorize like dresses but offer a more unique silhouette that is a little unexpected.

Two-Piece Sets

Sets are another great date night outfit idea for formal occasions because they operate with the same simplicity as dresses and jumpsuits. These pre-made looks only require a pair of heels and your favorite jewelry to ensure that you’re date ready. Opt for sets made with velvet, cashmere, and satin to elevate your look through high-end fabrics and textiles. Save the corduroy and knits for more casual occasions.

2.Casual Date Night

Not every date night needs to be a big night on the town. Sometimes, it’s nice to grab a coffee or see a movie together. If you want to maintain an elevated ensemble without going overboard, try these more casual date night outfit ideas.

Relaxed Dresses

Warm-weather dresses in fun patterns and bright colors with a relaxed fit are usually the best choices for a casual date night. They’re easy to dress up with heels and jewelry or dress down with flats and a hat. A casual sweater dress for winter or a t-shirt dress for spring means you have a date night outfit for any season.

Shorts/Skirts & Blouses

If the weather is warming up, wearing a pair of shorts or a skirt is a perfect date night outfit idea. These bottoms are also easy to mix and match with urban or sophisticated tops and accessories that will completely change the way they look. Consider wearing a pair of shorts with a blazer and heels for something that blends formal and casual styles. Or, wear your bottoms with a simple tee to keep your look subdued and effortless.

3.Stay At Home Date Night

Even if you’re staying at home, you can still create a date night outfit idea that’s special and romantic while keeping everything ultra-comfortable. 

Elevated Athleisure Wear
