10 Easy Date Night Outfit Ideas

Hello Monday! It’s another new week, and this one is exciting because we’re moving on Friday! There is so much to get done before that — carpet to be installed, painting to finish, and lots of packing left to do.

It’s also an exciting week in the fashion world. Those of us who shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale are gearing up for yet another fall shopping extravaganza!

Yes, I know it’s July. But you will thank me in September when you’re already set with some fabulous new fall clothes and accessories that you scored at a great price. #trustme #Iwouldntsteeryouwrong

Meanwhile, I’ve rounded up some summer date night outfit ideas to help you shop your closet and get a little more bang for your buck out of your summer wardrobe.

Now that our kids are older, Paul and I go out to dinner a lot, and I like to dress up a little bit. Here are some of my summer date night outfits over the past couple of years that might help inspire you if you’re looking to jazz things up when you go out with your honey.

10 Easy Date Night Outfit Ideas

#1. Silk Tank, Black Jeans, Leopard Sandals // My top is old, but you can do this look with pretty much any silky tank or blouse. I like wearing black jeans in the summertime because it’s a little unexpected and gives the summery look a more edgy vibe, but it’s the leopard sandals that make the outfit.

#2. Fit-and-Flare Dress with Wedge Sandals // I usually wear jeans when I go out, but I really should wear my dresses more often. This embroidered fit and flare dress is amazing on, and if you want, you can dress it up even more with strappy stiletto sandals.

#3. Bright Top, White Jeans, Denim Jacket, Wedge Sandals // I’m always cold inside, so I like to bring a denim jacket along. Any bright top (or pastel, or even a neutral, for that matter) with white jeans and a denim jacket is a safe combination that always looks put together.

#4. Striped Shorts, Solid Tank, Wedge Sandals // Don’t rule out wearing shorts for date night — especially if you’ll be outside where it’s warm.

#5. Off-the-Shoulder Blouse, Black Jeans, Black Sandals // I wore this outfit in Florida, and I roasted in the black jeans, but I would be able to wear it here in Philly on a lot of summer nights. You could do this look with black shorts if you live in a hotter climate.

#6. Moto Jacket, Cami, Blue Jeans, Pumps // This is more of a springtime date night look, but I wanted to include it because some of us do get some cooler nights in the summertime. I like the combination of the classy pumps and edgy moto jacket, and I was happy to discover this jacket is still available!

#7. Bright Top, Cropped Jeans, Wedge Sandals // This is a more casual date night look, but it’s perfect for going to the movies or to a more casual restaurant. Swap out the wedge sandals for flat metallic strappy sandals if you want to dress it down even more.

#8. Patterned Shorts, White Tee, Wedge Sandals // Another dressy shorts outfit that is perfect for date night!

#9. Black Shorts, Striped Tee, Leopard Flats // I almost always wear heels with my date night outfits because I love high heels, and besides church, it’s the only chance I get to wear them. But I know some of my faithful readers don’t wear heels so I wanted to show a cute date night look with flats. A pair of leopard flats is a great way to level up a simple tee and shorts outfit.
