Date Night Black Top & White Jeans

We mentioned having that date-ready black top in your closet…so let’s start there! If you don’t have one you love, this beauty is swoon-worthy! This sexy black corset top by Cult Gaia has dramatic puff sleeves and a slimming corset bodice. It’s a STUNNER. The sleeves offer coverage, which also balances out the exaggerated sweetheart neckline. In this look, Erin went classic black and white with a pair of white wide-leg Pistola jeans. White jeans are a great option for date night! The jeans have a relaxed fit, so you’ll be stylish and comfortable. They have a raw hem and 27″ inseam which is the perfect length for Erin at 5’4″ with heels or flats. And…they are very affordable!

On her feet, Erin is wearing the prettiest platforms with rickrack trim and a coordinating clutch by Cult Gaia. She finishes her look with gorgeous gold hoops and a Julie Vos bracelet stack.

White Date Night Top & Denim

White tops are less expected when it comes to date night. Which is just one of the reasons we love this asymmetrical, tie-waist top by Staud. It has an asymmetrical hem and shoulders, a draped cowl neck, a tie waist, and an open side. The one exposed shoulder adds a little sexiness, and the cotton poplin material is very lightweight and breathable. Erin styled it with a tank underneath, but to dial up the date night effect even more, you could also wear a pretty bralette underneath.  It runs true to size. Just the simple adjustment of wearing brown heels and a crisp white top vs. black changes things up in such a fun, unexpected way!

Erin styled the top with a pair of denim pants by Veronica Beard that she bought last fall but easily transitioned to spring and summer. She completed the look with a pair of See by Chloe platforms that are back in stock this season! These are a great pair of heels that’ll give you that extra height but are still comfy to walk in.

If you’re on the hunt for spring and summer white tops, we share 5 of Erin’s latest and greatest in this post.

Red Date Night Dress

Red is just one of those sexy colors… attention-grabbing and statement-making! A woman in a red dress naturally turns heads. This beautiful floral dress by Wayf is a great example of a date night dress that can be worn to a shower or a wedding as well. With a few accessory swaps, it’ll go the extra mile in your wardrobe…playing double or even triple duty. It has a fitted, corset-like top with hook and eye closures that you can leave completely closed or slightly undone. It’s a great midi length and it has adjustable straps.

We love it paired with sky-high platforms and a chic clutch for date night. But swap those out for sneakers, a denim jacket, and your favorite tote bag and you’re all set for lunch with the girls or a day of shopping. This dress keeps going in and out of stock. If you’ve been considering it and your size is available, don’t hesitate.

Farm Rio Matching Shorts & Top Set

Farm Rio Matching Shorts & Top Set

Sticking with the red theme, we wanted to share this beautiful red Farm Rio shorts and top set as another unexpected date night option. This is one of those “act now” outfits because the top in particular keeps selling out and getting restocked. It has pretty puff sleeves, and the print is actually red and pink. It has a not-too-cropped length that’s easy to front tuck and pretty beaded buttons down the back. It’s 100% cotton so you’ll stay nice and cool (even if date night gets steamy 😉). The matching shorts are a flattering cut AND length, have pockets (yay!), and come with a matching print belt with a beaded buckle. We love this outfit with Erin’s sky-high platforms for date night. Drape a blazer over your shoulders, grab a neutral clutch, and get ready for the compliments to roll in.

Style Tip: The great thing about a matching set like this is mixing the separates for ultimate versatility and outfit options. Wear the shorts with a white tee or tank, denim jacket and sneakers or couple the top with a pair of wide-leg flowy pants. The options are endless.

Shorts & a Blazer

If you thought your denim shorts were too casual for date night…it might be time to reconsider! It’s all about the styling. In this look, Erin is wearing a pair of distressed denim shorts by Pistola. They are a great length and have a flattering cut at the leg. Paired with an elevated white top, chic blazer, belt, and nude heels…well, it pretty much speaks for itself. If you love your legs, show them off! This outfit is sexy and cool all wrapped into one. But, you know you’ll wear the shorts with sneakers all summer. And the blazer can be dressed up for the office or worn over a dress for a special event.

Black Dress

Every woman needs an LBD for summer! This look is definitely more of a traditional date night outfit. This sexy black dress by Me +Em has a smocked fitted bodice and an elegant one-shoulder detail. It will be a heavy hitter in your closet because it’s not just for date night. It’s sophisticated, simple, elegant, and gets an 11 out of 10 for comfort. Did you notice the pockets? You can dress it up with pretty jewelry and heels for date night. But then also throw on some sandals for a versatile vacation dress. Wear it with sneakers too. If you are 5’4” or over this dress can easily be worn with flats or heels.
