5 cute date-night outfits to make him melt

By: Andrea Karr
Have a closet full of clothes but nothing to wear? We know the feeling. It seems to become even more pronounced when date night looms, because we all want to make a good impression—whether it’s the second date or the thousandth.

What's a gal to do?

To ensure your outfit is in tip-top shape, let your activity be your guide—your attire for a fancy dinner out will be different than for a watch-Netflix-and-scarf-chocolate-while-the-kids-are-asleep night at home.

Try to incorporate items from your existing wardrobe, but treat yourself to a new blouse, sparkly necklace or brand new PJs for a touch of freshness. Your date will love it, and so will you.

5 cute date-night outfits to make him melt

The date: A romantic dinner

If your paramour is taking you out for a nice meal, reciprocate by dolling up a bit. A sheath dress layered with a moto jacket will keep you warm at the table, and is a nice mix of feminine and tough. Pair the look with heels and simple jewellery. A black, white and silver palette is flattering for everyone and right on trend for spring. Moto jacket, $59, joefresh.com. Dress, $98, canada.frenchconnection.com. Silver bar pendant, $24, oliveandpiper.com. Ring, $50, bananarepublic.ca. Heels, $90, aldoshoes.com.

The date: Live music at your favourite bar

The local bar may not be the place to break out your party dress, but you can still put some effort into your outfit. Try a sweater and skirt combo, but dress it down with nubbly tights and ankle boots. A statement coat and your favourite accessories (a treasured necklace, a shoulder bag to stash a few necessities) finish off the look. Spice up the outfit with a little patent. Jacquard patterned double-breasted coat, $199, zara.com/ca. J.Crew sweater, $80, net-a-porter.com. Necklace, $85, hillbergandberk.com. Leather saddle bag, $110, gapcanada.ca. Skirt, $60, zara.com/ca.
