Omg! That’s the first thing that goes through your mind when it’s finally sunk in that you’ve been asked out. And after your mind has finished reeling, panic sinks in with what is the perfect date night outfit? Luckily, I’ve decided to step in and give you 3 different looks for inspiration. All you have to do is, either rummage through your wardrobe or hit the shopping racks.

I love maxi dresses! They are extremely comfortable and can easily be jazzed up with accessories from your wardrobe. Wear a bold blue maxi dress, we particularly love this cobalt one from The Closet Label that you can pair with a gold Accessorize cuff. For a fun twist, layer with a chevron jacket from Sapphire and glam it up with spiky flats from Steve Madden.

If you have a wild side, why not go edgy with these PU panelled leggings from e-tailer KOOVS? You can pair them with this t-shirt from Mango, with a tiger emblazoned on it. Punch it up with a bright coloured clutch, I love this sea green one from Forever New. You can dress it up with either wedge sneakers or a pair of pointy-toe heels.

Instead of skater dresses or a little black dress, opt for a t-shirt dress. It’s better than squeezing into a body-con dress (which is a strict no-no, since you don’t want to look like you’re trying too hard). Throw on a statement necklace – gold pairs work wonderfully with navy. We loved this one from Accessorize that had a bit of turquoise. Keep your footwear interesting – choose ballet flats or moccasins. I think a pair of leopard print shoes from Done by None ups the style stakes.
