Arty top and lace skirt combo

Date-night style inspiration: Carrie Wong

Most women gun for a dress when it comes to date-dressing, but there’s something about an unexpected skirt-and-blouse combination that is both flirty and edgy at the same time. We love Carrie’s pairing of a minimalist wide-sleeved white top contrasted with a lace miniskirt with a cute mermaid hem. The white sneakers just ups the cool factor.

The floral dress

Date-night style inspiration: Elizabeth Lee

Ahh, the breezy floral dress is still the epitome of romantic dressing for many, with its bohemian and girly prettiness. Pair it with casual yet elegant thong sandals for strolls along the beach or anywhere in nature, and opt for a flowy fabric to combat the heat. We also recommend going for slightly more daring details, like a halter neck or cold-shoulder cut to flash a naughty glimpse of bare skin.

Romantic in nature but packing serious street cred, the white Victorian-inspired ruffle blouse is a new wardrobe staple. Paired with boldly printed bottoms and chunky heels, it lends an intellectual and free-spirited air.

The quirky printed cropped trouser

The quirky printed cropped trouser

Date-night style inspiration: Jade Seah

The printed cropped trouser has been trending since 2015, and given how it makes the wearer look both cool and fun-loving at the same time, we don’t think this trend will be going anywhere anytime soon. It’s also very versatile – dress it down with a plain white tee and sneakers, or dress it up with a luxe satin top and jacket (like Jade here) and top it off with skinny heels.

The bustier dress

The bustier dress

Date-night style inspiration: Jean Danker

For all-out sexy, nothing beats a well-fitted bustier dress. Jean’s bodycon pencil version hugs her petite figure in all the right places, while the lines in the design visually enhances her curviness. Keep the hemline to below the knee to keep it looking classy, not skanky.

The flowing deep-plunge blouse

Date-night style inspiration: Jeanette Aw

Want to sizzle but without losing any of that sweet girlish charm? Then go for a deep-plunging V-neck top, but in a loose, fluid silhouette to soften the sensuality of the exposed skin. Pair with skinny denim, tailored tapered trousers or a pencil skirt to pare down all that voluminous fabric.

The all-black outfit

The all-black outfit

Date-night style inspiration: Rebecca Lim

An all-black outfit can seem a little boring, but we love the sleek minimalism of the look and how it visually slims the body. Plus, you can dress it up with chunky accessories or a bright red lipstick for a hit of punchy colour, and you will still look too-cool-for-school - but in an effortless way. Perfect if you want to let you date know that he needs to step up his game if he wants to impress you.
