1) Flirty Knit Dress
There is something so alluring about simplicity – and that’s exactly what this look is. A full-length ribbed knit dress isn’t just minimal but it sets the mood for a quiet, candle lit dinner. You can always give it the cool girl treatment by introducing on-trend accessories, like a leather belt, calf-high boots, and a classic bag. When combined, they’ll take your knit maxi dress to the next level. Be sure to opt for dresses with a thigh slit for an extra seductive effect.

2) Blackout With Bright Pops
Although saturated hues are trending, nothing really beats the sophisticated energy an all black ensemble exudes – even during the springtime. That doesn’t mean you have to refrain from hints of color though. We love how Pipa styles a sultry open-front cardi with wide leg black trousers – and then makes sure to accent the look with a bright green handbag. This date night outfit lets you heat things up as you await the arrival of warmer temperatures.

3) Fringe Benefits
One way to spice up your date night outfit is to add an unexpected detail into the mix. For us, there’s nothing like a fringe accent piece – and we’ve been crushing on it all season long. Not only does it texturize your typical silhouettes but it also creates really beautiful movement, especially when you are casually walking around. As it’s statement-making on its own, there’s essentially no styling involved. Just add your favorite wrap-around heels and a shoulder bag.

4) Bombshell Bomber Jacket
For your next night out, you can opt to look like a bombshell in a bomber jacket. The more rugged outerwear style is making a significant comeback but it can appear to rundown on its own. Fortunately, all you need to make it date night appropriate is to layer it over a micro miniskirt or dress. This gives the look a downtown edge while keeping everything feminine. For extra style points, add pointed toe heels – it injects an air of sophistication.

5) Sheer Dress
Don’t be afraid to enlist the sheer trend to assist you in putting together the perfect date night outfit. By nature, any transparent fabrication is sensual and mysterious – just what you need to show off a little more skin. Naomi puts a brilliant spin on the trend, pairing her sheer babydoll dress with the knee-high boots. The two-piece combo is enough to make your date ogle at first glance.

6) Midriff Baring
Another tasteful way to bare some skin is by adhering to the popular bra top look. One outfit formula in particular takes the cake. A midriff baring bra top coupled with sleek, high-waisted trousers is a true match made in heaven. We cannot get over the end result and we have a feeling that your significant other won’t be able to either. It’s the perfect balance of sexy but chic.

7) Dressed Up Denim
For more casual spring outings, you can totally wear your favorite pair of jeans. However, you should be inclined to dress them up with more avant garde tops. Exhibit A, this stunning voluminous top with the textured tulle sleeves manages to take up the denim look tenfold. To complete the date night outfit, throw on a pair of heeled sandals and call it a day.

Take notes from Mrs. Bieber herself. For a night out with her husband, Hailey slayed the micro miniskirt trend. This look proves there is no need to overdo it either. A simple solid-colored crop top, miniskirt, and a pair of tall boots is so incredibly striking! It’s your fail-proof formula to nailing the leggy trend.

9) Forever Floral
Florals in the spring just make sense, especially when you’re out and about on an intimate date night. So why not consider dainty floral skirts or dresses that channel innocent romance? If you want to avoid your outfit from appearing too girly, you can always team them up with chunky combat boots. The delicate and edgy juxtaposition packs a punch.
