How to Dress Up for A Date-Night

 

Remember when dating used to be grabbing drinks at a bar or meeting up at restaurants? Needless to say, things have changed. Dating is a weird, complicated affair when you’re mainly at home all the time, but with some effort and a little imagination, it’s still possible to capture that romantic mood. At least there’s a silver lining to a cozy, stay at home date–choosing an ensemble is way less complicated. For one, the need for fancy heels are much less of a priority, and if that Bolognese sauce stains your top halfway through the meal, no pressure–your closet is just around the corner. 

So what are some easy date-night outfits for a rendezvous at home? Don’t fret–we’ve got some ideas (10 to be exact) about how to achieve that wow factor without the fuss. Whether you’ve been together for years or are at the start of a blossoming romance,

these 10 outfits will make you feel right on the money. 

KNIT WRAP TOP + KNIT PANTS

Knit sets were the unofficial uniform of last year; they strike that elusive mix of cozy, chic, and effortless. We say it’s more the reason to try one for date-night. A figure-hugging silhouette and deep v neckline elevate this to a dressier standard. 

 

PLUNGE BODYSUIT + ANIMAL PRINT PANTS

Chances are there’s a black bodysuit sitting in your wardrobe already. In this case, repurpose it with loose-fitting animal print pants (or stretchy for maximum comfort!) and sparkly earrings for extra pizazz. 

 
 

It doesn’t get much more seductive than a cut-out top. A maxi skirt provides a nice low-key contrast to the drama on top. 

MONOCHROME WHITE CARDIGAN + TROUSERS

Winter whites are just elegant, period. Wear the cardigan as a top and unbuttoned halfway for a flirty take. If wine is on the date-night agenda, just keep a stain remover pen at the ready. 

OFF THE SHOULDER DRESS + LACE UP SHOES

 

Sweet-heart necklines are the ultimate date-night look. To keep it more casual, add a pair of masculine lace-up shoes (only if you’re a shoe in the house kind of person!).

 

OVERSIZE PAJAMA SET

By now we know that pajamas are multi-purpose. The sleeper does an excellent job of elevating the nighttime basic, like this striped oversize set. Add some hoop earrings or cozy house shoes to make the look feel more intentional for an intimate dinner. 

 

STATEMENT BODYSUIT + BOYFRIEND JEANS + CHUNKY NECKLACE

Bodysuits to the rescue yet again! This time the look leans more casual with the introduction of loose-fitting boyfriend jeans. Accentuate a dramatic neckline with a chunky gold necklace. 

 

SLIP DRESS + DIAMANTE HOOP EARRINGS

Dresses are a powerful time-saving tool in your date-night outfit arsenal because you only need one piece. While structured dresses can feel too stuffy in a home setting, a slinky slip version feels more relaxed yet, sophisticated. Should you want to dress it up even further, might we suggest these blingy diamante hoops. 

 

MINI SKIRT + TURTLENECK + BLAZER

For an outfit that’s cute yet still easy-going, pair a mini skirt with a casual relaxed blazer. 

 
 

BACKLESS TOP + SWEATPANTS

At this point half of our lives are spent in sweatpants, so why should you stop now? For a sporty take that still reveals some skin, add a sexy backless top and polished gold earrings.
