Do you want to make a lasting impression on your date? If so, then a silk blouse with delicate details like this ivory number from Reformation is your best bet. While it may sound simple, silk blouses subtly exude a casual elegance, thanks to the textile's lustrous shine. This is why it works fittingly with our Valentine's Day Date Night Look , as its glossy texture plays well with shimmery eyeshadow.
Wear this top with a pair of straight-leg jeans to bring balance and comfort to your outfit. And don't forget to slip on a pair of heeled mules for a cohesive and chic look — perfect for a casual dinner date or even late-night cocktails.
Short Dress + Knee-High Boots
Dresses are undoubtedly a staple for date night looks, but have you considered styling them with a pair of knee-high boots? Although these types of shoes have a strong feel to them, they help bring structure to a dress's soft silhouette. Case in point, Woman Within's range of breezy dresses contrasts strikingly with the fashion-forward footwear. Since there are so many styles to choose from, opt for a sweet short wrap dress to help balance out the chunky character of your knee-high boots.
If you want to add even more stylish flair, try putting on a classic red lip or a cozy cardigan. This lovely ensemble is an exquisite choice for laid back outings, such as a movie date or a picnic at the park.

If you're up for appearing extra flirty on your date, it's time to piece a sweater, mini skirt, and strappy heels together. Apart from the balanced set of lengths, a sweater and mini-skirt combination is effortlessly charming. The sweater brings a polished touch to your outfit, while the mini-skirt keeps things sweet and sassy. What's more, you can choose light or pastel shades for a more feminine flair.
To finish your irresistibly cute get-up, you should put on a pair of strappy sandals like these featured on Marie Claire. Not only will they give you some extra height, but their strappy design adds an alluring touch.
