Office To Date Night Outfit
As we get older, it can be hard to get in touch with our sexy side. Some of us are going through menopause, haven’t felt sexy in a while, or just don’t know how to dress sexy over 40. I know it’s hard, but you have to remember we are beautiful, empowering, sexy women! Whether you’re trying to get back in the dating game or just want something to wear on your next date night with your partner, both of these looks are sexy AND sophisticated. And, since as women we are ALWAYS mutli-tasking, these looks will take you from the office to date night without skipping a beat.
Speaking of sexy, you can find our roundup of sexy sweaters here.
SKIRT | FOR LESS | BLOUSE | FOR LESS | BOOTIES | BAG | TIGHTS
#1) High Neck Blouse + Leather Midi
This high neck, slightly sheer blouse by ba&sh is perfect for the office with a cami underneath but for date night, you could wear a black bra for a touch of sexy without being too much. It has some unique details like a small, v-shaped opening in the back (you can still wear a regular bra) and zippers on the sleeves. I paired it with this IRO leather midi skirt…leather is just sexy. Period. It’s luxe, soft and edgy but because of the midi-length, it’s still office appropriate. The high-waist, ruching, and gathers will help camouflage a tummy and hips if those are areas of concern. There is a slit up the front, but it’s modest and when you wear black tights, it’s still very acceptable for workwear especially if you work in a more modern atmosphere or office.
SIMILAR DRESS | SIMILAR BELT | BOOTIES | TIGHTS | BAG | EARRINGS
#2) Long Sleeve Mini Dress + Booties
I love a good, one-and-done dress for the office or date night. What makes this & Other Stories mini perfect for either occasion is that it follows my One Skin Rule! That is, since it’s on the shorter side, the legs are the ONE highlighted area. The rest of the dress is pretty modest with the long sleeves and high, tie-neck. For date night, you could untie the neck to show a bit more skin. This exact dress is no longer available in the black polka dot, but the exact style is available in a pretty, black and pink, small floral print which will be perfect now for winter and going into spring! I paired the dress with Schutz booties that are sleek and sexy (and pretty comfortable for heels!) and a gorgeous belt by Elizabetta Franchi. I purchased the belt in Spain and unfortunately, can’t find the exact one to link but I did link a similar belt above that will give you the same look and edgy feel.
Note: One of our team members, Susan, purchased the similar belt by B-Low the Belt and says it’s beautiful! It also runs large so you may want to consider sizing down one size.

I can’t begin to tell you how much you and your team have helped me. I have felt a bit lost when it comes to style these past few years, but since I came across one of your videos on YouTube, I feel as though I have found a positive role model, mentor, and even friend. I love your positivity, kindness, and acceptance of all women, and the way in which you inspire confidence in others indeed, one of my biggest hurdles was that I did not have the basics I have since purchased all the basics on your lists, and thanks to the Nordstrom anniversary sale I feel myself and confident and happy in my newly organized closet and in the outfits I put together
you had sent an email wondering whether to YouTube videos was important to your followers. Of course, I want you to do what works for you and what enhances your life, but I do want to let you know that the YouTube videos help me far more than the Instagram and the website and the blog posts. It helps to see you moving in the clothes, and to hear your commentary on everything from looking our best to living our best lives, and I very much look forward to the two videos per week.
Thank you so much for all that you are doing. I hope to follow you for many years to come as styles change, and as we mature together. With admiration and love,
Weet-Whew Awwwwooo 🙂
Love this outfit Erin! The top is so cute with the cutouts!
