Recently, I put a question box on my INSTAGRAM Stories for you to ask me anything - personal questions, links for outfits I have posted and any requests for specific content.  One of the requests I received was to do a blog post about DATE NIGHT OUTFIT IDEAS.  Ask, and you shall receive!  I have rounded up several looks that are perfect for a night out - either with your significant other or your girlfriends.  I have included links to each outfit under the photo as well as sizing information.  I hope you find some outfit inspiration in this post!

This BELL SLEEVE DRESS is easy to throw on and still look put together for a night out.  It is a light weight material, so not something you will want to wear when it is really cold, but it is perfect for this time of year.  The neckline laces at the base of the "v", so I recommend wearing a CAMI or bralette underneath unless you don't mind showing some cleavage!  The dress runs large (I am wearing a small), so I recommend sizing down.

I love bold colored dresses and think a RED DRESS is perfect for fun night out. I paired it with some SNAKESKIN BOOTIES (SIMILAR), and it would also look cute with LEOPARD BOOTIES.  I added my go-to MOTO JACKET & a fun BLACK BAG (SIMILAR) and think this look is perfect for a date night.  The jacket runs true to size.

A double breasted LEOPARD BLAZER?!?  Yes please!  I think this blazer is so fun for a night out.  It is super soft too!  I like rolling up the sleeves to see a bit of the black lining. I paired it with BLACK JEANS but it would also look great with a skirt.  The blazer runs true to size.  

This pretty FLORAL DRESS has already been in heavy rotation for me this fall.  It is nice and loose, so it doesn't show if I have one too many tacos.  Ha!  I have it paired with my TAUPE BOOTIES and will wear with over the knee BOOTS when it is cooler.  I find that the dress runs large, so I recommend sizing down. I am wearing a size small.  I recommend sizing up 1/2 size in the booties. 

This HALTER TOP is great for date night.  Pair it with black jeans for a more casual look or with a BLACK MIDI SKIRT for a dressier look.  If you prefer a shorter skirt, I love this BLACK PENCIL SKIRT.  I paired this outfit with some BLACK SANDALS (similar to mine) & it would also look cute with BLACK BOOTIES.  The top and skirt both run true to size.

I love a good PLAID BLAZER and jeans paired together.  This look can transition easily from the office to a night out.  You could also swap out of the booties for some HEELS for a dressier look.  I recommend sizing down in the jeans and size up 1/2 size in the booties.  


This BLACK HALTER TOP is similar to the animal print one I posted above.  This one ties at the back of the neck and is a thicker jersey material.  I am wearing it with JEANS but it would also look cute with a LEOPARD PRINT SKIRT.  The top runs true to size.  

Here is one last look for some date night outfit inspo.  The PINK HALTER TOP I am wearing here is the same top as the black one above.  I paired it with a FLORAL MIDI SKIRT.  I love that the skirt is a little higher in the front than the back. I added a DENIM JACKET and some over the knee BOOTS to finish off the look.  Each item in this outfit runs true to size.
