How should I dress for a date night in fall?

Light layers, sweaters, jeans, sweater dresses, and boots are all excellent fall date night outfit options. Choose mostly neutrals like ivory, cream, black, and grey paired with rich, fall colors like rust, forest green, camel, and brown.

When it comes to dressing for fall date nights, choose pieces that are versatile and that you feel your best in. Because, when you feel your best, you look your best!.

Additionally, play with fabrics and textures. Silk, satin, cashmere, and leather are subtly sexy options. Get dressy date night outfit inspiration below!

A silk or satin slip skirt with a basic tank and lug boots is a great look to rock at a concert or drinks on a rooftop. Throw a cozy sweater over your shoulders for a layer of warmth and to create an effortless look.

This outfit is cool, chic and absolutely timeless. You’ll be grabbing these pieces anytime you have a fun date night planned.

This more formal fall outfit is perfect for a fall wedding date. The pumpkin spice color of this midi dress is everything fall is made of.

Throw on some strappy black sandals, and you’ll be the best dressed wedding guest. If it gets a little chilly, a black leather jacket would be fabulously chic atop this show-stopping gown. 

If rust isn’t your color, opt for a black midi dress, or an earth tone floral pattern.

leopard dress + red pumps.

We love animal print for fall. A leopard or cheetah print midi dress is a neutral staple in our fall handbook.

For a pop of color, pair your animal print with a red heel. Not in to animal print? A floral midi dress would look just as chic.

No matter your preference, you’ll look sophisticated and fun for a dinner, wedding or cocktail lounge date night. 

olive slip dress + nude heels.

Another more formal fall dat night option, this olive green slip dress is super sexy and great for a warm evening in early fall. With this look, you’ll shine at any September or early October wedding or formal date.

Again, a black leather or suede jacket could be a great added touch, and add a layer of warmth if it cools down at night.

Wanting to wear a satin slip dress to a more casual event? Switch out the heels for some black leather boots and you’ll be ready for anything!

Casual Date Night Outfits 2022

Choosing an outfit for a casual date night can sometimes be a bit challenging. You want to look classy and chic, but not too dressed up.

If you are going to a movie, for a walk in the park, eating at a casual restaurant or simply spending time with your date at home, you’ll want to look cute but still feel comfortable. No matter what your casual date night plans are, we have outfit ideas below that are sure to please.

This outfit is casual, but still chic. You can dress it up or down depending on your date night activity. If you’re planning on walking a lot, you may want to switch out the booties for a lower heel or sneakers.

This truly is the the perfect early fall casual date night outfit. 

What do you wear on a cold date night?

On a cold date night the best options include warm wool coats, shearling jackets, knit sweaters, cozy cardigans and all the boots. Some people think that cold date nights are hard to dress for, but that couldn’t be further from the truth!

Chilly nights mean chic jackets and all the cuddling potential. Take a look at some of our favorite cold date night outfits below.

This look is great for a chilly night on the town or an outdoor concert. It’s also great for a casual dinner.

An outfit like this is also very versatile, effortless and timeless because of the use of neutrals and staple wardrobe essentials.

Want to stay warm on your fall date night but don’t want to wear a bulky jacket? Layer a turtleneck sweater under a comfy cardigan to stay warm and still look chic all evening.

To keep this look from getting too casual, put on a pair of stylish leather pants. Then, add heeled booties to elevate the outfit even more. Choose the height of the heels on your boots depending on the amount of walking you’ll be doing.

This outfit is perfect for anything the night may throw at you!

Hopping around town on your chilly date night? Nothing is better for cold weather than a shearling utility jacket and a chunky scarf.

You’ll be warm all night in this timeless look. To spice it up a little, wear a snakeskin print ankle boot. This is a perfect way to elevate neutral basics with an edgy print and pop of color. 

What should I wear on a 2022 first date?

On a first date in 2022, it’s best to aim for a simple, yet elegant outfit. 2022 is all about timeless neutrals so go with jeans, heeled ankle boots, neutral tops, and uncomplicated pieces.

You’re already nervous enough on a first date, you don’t want to be overthinking everything you’re wearing. Read on for our favorite first date outfit picks.

Two toned pumps add a bit of interest to outfit, while still looking chic and timeless.
