We all know dates are certainly not the easiest part of…well…dating. The desire to impress, the expectations, the fear… It’s all on the table and not happening like it was in ‘The Notebook’. #SorryNotSorry. Part of it is what to wear, agreed? Worry no more because the perfect date night outfits exist, and it’s all up to you to get the best out of them.
There’s a good reason ‘date night outfits 2023’ might seem like a scary thing to Google search for. First, the experience is not the same if happening over Zoom. Next, who knows if you’ll find a great way and sustainable choice or a piece that the trash would be delighted to take care of? Furthermore, only an irresponsible masochist would want to make their bank account cry because tears are all it has left.
Now let’s talk seriously. It doesn’t matter if you are looking for Valentine’s Day outfit ideas to impress your man, or you are having a special occasion, and he is taking you out for a fancy dinner. The main problem all women have is that we see nothing to wear when, in reality, we have a bevy of wonderful things to wear. Save the white dresses for your big day. We have something else in mind.
Whether you prefer the elegantly classic look or are more into something that you would put on every day, keep in mind that sometimes all you need is a timeless staple you most likely already own. Make a change from the go-to black dresses and plunging neckline. The important things to remember are that when it comes to love, you have to follow your heart, but when it comes to fashion, try following these gorgeous date night outfit ideas to show off the best version of you.
7 Gorgeous Date Night Outfits That Style Class With Sass:
1. Pair a turtleneck with high-rise leather shorts, thigh-high boots and a classy long black coat
A glance is enough to figure it out. This suggestion is not for you if you casually enjoy the pop of color and patterns of spring fashion. It’s for those who appreciate vegan fashion, are keen on a winter date night outfit and prefer basics over seasonal pieces. Turtlenecks are coming back hard and go well with a pair of high-rise leather shorts. As for the long black coat, it’s a must for every minimalist’s wardrobe, especially when the long coats are made from vegan cashmere wool.
The great finishing touch? Black thigh-high boots to add a sexy vibe to the whole picture. Oh, and this pre-owned Chanel shoulder bag. It’s probably the best way to go around having a high-class designer bag without contributing to animals being harmed for the purpose of fashion. Plus, the gold jewelry and clasp stand out and assure your loved one he didn’t go on a date with the queen of darkness. Simple accessories can work wonders.
2. Style a classy oversized shirt with a v-cut vest, white knee boots and a timeless iconic bag
If you tell me this is not a perfect look for the office, slightly transitioning into a perfect date night outfit, then we can’t be friends. It’s the perfect balance. The crisp linen shirt with a curved hemline is a classic that would never go out of style. Mix it with a V-cut vest, which is no longer reserved for Chandler Bing and Chandler Bing only.
As for the contrast between white and brown, it applies to fun accessories as well. White knee boots inevitably sync with snow and indeed are both a comfortable and stylish pick, showing just a little skin to tease your date. Acceptable, even if this is just being used for a casual date night outfit.
The pre-owned philosophy shall convince you to get this insanely gorgeous Louis Vuitton shoulder bag. By buying it, you can be confident that you’re making a better choice of cute shoulder bag, which is good for the Planet and for your personal style. Definitely add this one to your collection of spring date night outfits.
Note: It’s a good idea to size up for an oversized fit shirt, so you can wear it as a shirt dress.
3. Wear a turtleneck sweater with a black blazer, faux leather shorts and high black boots
Say ‘hi’ and welcome one more way to incorporate the vegan shorts from look 1. Moving slowly on the border between an elegant and a casual date outfit, here we have the strong silhouette for all body types with the oversized wool blazer with welt pockets (meeting the responsible wool standard!) and a super-soft turtleneck sweater.
Oversized blazers are a great option, even in warmer weather. If you are willing to step out of your comfort zone, wear them with edgy black boots with such a high rise you can put them on even in winter, without fear of getting chilly in the cold weather or not being noticed. They’re pretty much a statement piece in themselves. Add a third layer with a crop top underneath to keep warm in the cooler months.
In my personal opinion, the game-changer is the pair of square-frame sunglasses, which guarantee a classy yet discrete look. The kind you want for the onset of spring, but not a wedding date. Don’t let the cat out of the bag immediately. Make others wonder if they are walking past a movie star. Maybe they are. Bonus points if they ask for a selfie. Everyone enjoys a good time and a little mystery. Not during dinner or in a one-on-one conversation, that would be rude.
4. Pair a basic long sleeve tee with leather leggings, oversized wool blazer and chunky ankle boots
Date night outfits with leggings are not an option if the faux leather is missing, right? No, we’re not talking about a leather jacket. Here we have mind-blowing vegan leather leggings that naturally sculpt and flatter the figure. Keep in mind they are a tight fit, so choosing a size above your usual one is a good move. Makes a change from the skinny jeans you’re used to. Yes, I know they are your favorite pair of jeans, but we’re here to make some changes.
While long sleeve tees are something that many people ignore for the love of a cozy sweater, pairing them with an oversized wool blazer is enough to keep you warm whether you need a dinner date outfit or something for a late walk in the park. The chunky sweaters get the chef’s kiss, but maybe not in warmer temperatures.
In case there is too much snow and ice around (or worse, both), a pair of chunky black vegan boots is your go-to option. That way, you wouldn’t fall in your partner’s arms every 5 minutes. If that’s not exactly what you are looking for, try some white sneakers and black sunglasses in the sunny warmer months. Because the Summer date night look never looked so good.
5. Go for a classy white shirt with faux leather leggings, an oversized blazer and chunky ankle boots for a casual yet stylish date night outfit
A woman’s date night outfit is not a lesson in nuclear physics, but still, there’s a lot of thinking in the process. Trust me, I know. Classy white shirts seem like a safe and boring choice that could be absolutely transformed into a hot styling one when worn with black leather leggings. Rather than letting your guy freeze his ass off because he has to give you his denim jacket, stay warm and get this gorgeous wool blazer. That way, everyone is happy.
Available in three beautiful colors and at a fantastic price, these vegan leather boots are a total must-have! The same applies to the Chanel bag. But that goes without saying. They make chic date night outfits look easy.

6. Layer an oversized trench coat with a mini knit dress and finish the look with Chelsea boots and a small black tote bag
This is the picture-perfect example of date night ideas for outfits Pinterest could offer you. Made from 100% cotton and recycled polyester, the long trench is an oversized fit intended for layering. Try it with some cute outfits with date night dresses — for example a midi skirt or midi dress like this mock neck one. A sweater dress is great for the colder months.
These black and white Chelsea boots have a chunky platform and go well with basically everything. Yes, they do go with the black vegan tote bag as well. It’s an ethical and sophisticated accessory, just like a pair of delicate gold earrings. Same as the manners you are expecting to see on a first coffee date and the next date after that, and the next… and the next.
7. You can never go wrong with a pair of high-cut pants styled with a classy shirt, white trainers, and a luxury belted coat
Please, allow me to use the cliché and save the best thing for last. All casual first date night outfits ideas are sure to impress your potential perfect match, but it’s really great when you can impress yourself too. The favorite pieces of any minimalist in this look would help you because you can wear them in (literally) thousands of different ways to suit your individual style. Now every hour is happy hour.
The sandstone high-cut pants – wide leg if you prefer – go hand in hand with the neutral belted coat, standing out because of a large shawl collar. Underneath — a classy white shirt. In hand — a crossbody bag carrying everything you need. Finish with cute retro trainers, so you feel and look good in comfortable shoes. Swap for strappy heels if you’re feeling fancy. The ball is in your court, don’t throw it back and forth. Dress to impress with these date outfits. Or just got with that little black dress and black heels at a moments notice.
