Regardless of age or experience, we’ve got to admit: There’s something about going on a date that still gets us giddy with excitement. Perhaps because we’re always finding an excuse to pretty up in cute dresses, high heels, and all those makeup tricks we don’t bother attempting otherwise.
With spring in our midst, we have a variety of chic, feminine styles to play with—all of which are ideal for a date night. The trick to the perfect rendez-vous look? Treading the line between sexy and sweet. For all your romantic outings this spring, we suggest keeping the silhouette girly with silky blouses or simple dresses. That said, don’t shy away from the on-trend edginess a pair of leather-piped skinny jeans or slouchy leather shorts might offer.
When it comes to the little touches, we’re all about the go big or go home mentality. Add bright pops of colors here and there (on your lips, with your bag) to spruce things up a bit, and we’re also endorsing the power of statement jewelry and notice-me heels to liven up a look instantaneously.
Read on to see three perfect outfits to copy for three types of date nights: dinner and a movie, drinks on the town, and an evening at the theater.

On the agenda: Dinner and a movie
A laid-back date calls for something that's comfortable yet chic. Keep your outfit relaxed but still put-together with a silky blouse.

With a pair of relaxed black skinnies, you can never go wrong. Keep in mind to balance the femininity of your top with some cool details, like the leather piping on this particular pair.

Topshop Clean Biker Jacket, $110; at Topshop
Brighten up the monotonous ensemble with a pair of shoes that really stand out on its own - we're loving these neon-pink smoking shoes that undoubtedly offer some comfortable practicality.
