The LBD has been a closet staple for decades. Whether it’s lace, satin, velvet or covered in frills, you can never go wrong with a black dress. Choose one that accentuates your figure for the ‘WOW’ factor. Make sure it is a dress that you feel comfortable in, remember comfort adds to your confidence!

2. A Small Purse

A small purse is often a statement piece that picks up the whole outfit. You could opt for a bright neon bag, or a sparkly gold one, maybe even a classic monochrome bag.

These are perfect to hold your phone, keys, and lipgloss while you enjoy your date. Your choice of purse is a representation of your style and fashion preferences, so choose wisely!

3. Heels

I am a firm believer that a person’s choice of foot wear defines their character. Date night is the one night we can really dress to the nines so why not bust out your favorite pair of heels and turn heads?

Choose a pair that compliments your purse or go for a classic red or black pair. Whether you prefer stilettos, wedges, block heels or even kitten heels, always opt for comfort. The last thing you want is to have aching feet all night. 

4. Red Lipstick

Red lipstick is the greatest confidence booster. Candy Apple red, orange-red or even deep maroon red, never underestimate the power of this shade. It lifts up even the simplest of makeup looks. It also creates the illusion of brighter teeth so you can smile confidently all night long!

5: Statement Jewelry


When it comes to jewelry, always pick a statement piece. You could choose a handful of gold rings, a tennis bracelet, your favorite necklace you’ve had since you were 16 or even just a pair of stunning earrings.

Classic gold or diamond pieces are always a safe option but regardless of your choices, keep it simple. Let your outfit do the talking.

6. A Blazer


It often gets chilly at night so don’t forget to leave the house without some form of jacket. My personal favorite is a blazer. It is a timeless and fashionable option. You could wear a bright colour if you have a vibrant personality, or go for monochrome should you prefer the classic and formal look.

Whether you prefer the colourful accessories or the monochrome palette, keep these 6 items close and you will be more than ready for date night!
