It’s cuffing season ladies and gentlemen, and you know what that means? Your date night plans are about to increase tenfold. The search for a winter significant other is ON, with hot girl summer behind us and the need for a Netflix and Christmas market partner growing in urgency by the day, it’s time to redownload the apps you love to hate and get your false lashes ready to flutter across the bar.
In all seriousness, we love a date night, whether it be with a long term partner or someone new and mysterious, the chance to have one on one chats, giggles and a cheeky kiss (or more, oi oi) at the end of the night is always a fun way to spice up the week. No matter your love language, a date night with the right person has the power to set the butterflies, fireworks and every other figurative exciting feeling off for days to come, and we couldn’t be more here for it.
So, put your best heeled-boot foot forward and let’s lockdown those lovers in time for a guaranteed New Year’s Eve smooch.
Hold the phone, I’m actually having a date night this week, my husband and I are going to see the new 007 movie and I cannot wait! Given it’s quite a low key date I’ll probably stick to the old faithful; jeans, boots, a nice top and jacket but the idea of not having to wear a breastfeeding-friendly bra and not having baby food all over me gives me the most joy of all.

The best date night outfits start with matching lingerie, something I usually don’t tend to bother with but it does make me feel that extra bit sexy. Then I’ve gone for this sleek black midi dress that for some reason is giving me major Elle Woods at a funeral vibe. The statement boots need no introduction, they’re Twiggy in boot form and I love them. Gold accessories to finish it off!

For my date night look, I’ve gone for cocktails at a fancy bar kinda vibe. You can never go wrong with a pair of leather-look trousers and that’s a FACT, paired with this really cute cross body top from Mango in lime green and some white accessories!
The chances of me going on a date would be a fine thing BUT we move, haha. I love getting dressed up for a little evening of drinks or a nice meal and this outfit is one I’d feel super comfortable in but still feels quite dressy and sexy! Warehouse has got some amazing pieces at the moment, including this mesh top which has inspired a blue look with some matching accessories- something a bit different than my normal colour palette but one I really want to rock IRL! Add a little heeled boot and boom, an autumn date night dream!
All black is always a vibe for date night. Sleek, classy and timeless! I know I’ll get the wear out of this Warehouse suit, both as a two-piece and as separates, which is always a bonus for cost per wear ya know. I’ll stick to the noir theme and finish off the lewk with strappy black heels and a slouchy bag.
What date night and outfit combo can beat Jeans and a nice top at a vibey but chilled pub. I will quite literally always opt for high waisted blue jeans with a black top and black boots. Gold accessories and bright red lipstick with a red bag. Comfy and casual but can tell I’ve put a bit of effort in. Not sure if this counts as a part of the ‘look’ but you’ll probably see me with a few tequila’s in hand too.
