What To Wear on a Date Night

If you're uncertain about which work to date night outfits will work best, here are some sexy date night outfits to inspire your style transformation and boost your confidence in your first encounter with that special someone.

Dress like an onion.

Baleaf Evergreen Lightweight Drape Cardigan

Your go-to work companions—be it a blazer, tweed jacket, or cardigan—play a crucial role in projecting professionalism when dealing with your boss, clients, and co-workers. Nothing is more alluring than a woman radiating power and authority in the workplace. As you clock out, let what's concealed beneath your jacket take center stage, making it the main attraction of the night.

Alternatively, get that lady boss look for a boardroom presentation by choosing a sheath dress, paired effortlessly with a solid cardigan or blazer for workplace authority. Complete the professional ensemble with pointy-toe pumps and a work tote. As you head for your awaited date, shed the layer and switch to a lovely purse for a stylish transition.

Look professional while in the office in our Evergreen Lightweight Drape Cardigan then peel it off like an onion to reveal that sexy top you've been hiding underneath while at work to wow your date night partner on your first encounter with each other.

Put your best foot forward in a LBD.

Baleaf Flyleaf Ribbed 2-in-1 Tank Dress

You can't go amiss with this timeless favorite—a monochromatic black outfit is a foolproof choice. Elevate it by adding a colored tweed layer for a polished and chic office look.

Go for a black dress with a touch of lace or sheer mesh, like our Flyleaf Ribbed 2-in-1 Tank Dress to exude a demure yet alluring vibe that will captivate your date. Complete your ensemble with understated jewelry and confidently step into the restaurant in stylish high heels.

Crop it up on top.

Baleaf Laureate V Neck Cropped Tank Top

Certainly, a cropped top can make a work-appropriate ensemble when layered over a collared shirt. Leave the shirt untucked and pair it with a pencil-cut skirt for a preppy yet sexy office look that keeps you fully covered. When it's time for your special night out, simply remove the collared shirt to reveal some midriff, showcasing your alluring curves.

Look alluring in our Laureate V Neck Cropped Tank Top with a flattering V-neck with dropped armholes, ruched details around the stomach for tummy coverage, and a waist-up length that pairs perfectly with high-rise leggings or pencil-cut skirt.

Bring in sexy back.

Baleaf Flyleaf Open Back Crop Top

Flaunt some skin by wearing a backless or plunging neckline dress under a tight-knit sweater for the office, ensuring the dress has a tight-fit top and appropriate length. Complete the look with a narrow belt, and when heading out for your date, leave the sweater behind to showcase your sexy back.

Our Flyleaf Open Back Crop Top is not limited to workouts, yoga, or Pilates. Show off your sexy back on your date night by wearing one underneath your covered office attire.

Look slender in a pair of leggings.

Baleaf Flyleaf High Rise Leggings

Leggings, sweats, or any stretchy-waist options aren't just casual essentials; they serve as sources of comfort and emotional support. Leggings are evolving into more pant-like silhouettes with cropped, flared hems, transitioning from a casual vibe to a business-casual look when paired with flats and a button-down. The chic possibilities of elasticized pants are just starting to be explored.

Pair our Flyleaf High Rise Leggings with any business casual top to exude a professional vibe then ditch that layer as soon as you clock out.

Look preppy in a mini.

Baleaf Laureate UPF50+ Pleated Skorts

The mini skirt brings a playful vibe to date night, but it can also be office-appropriate when paired with a sleeveless top, blazer, and low-key flats. Add tights for extra warmth. Transition into the night by removing the tights to showcase your beautiful legs, complemented by high-heeled shoes.

Show off your well-toned legs in our Laureate UPF50+ Pleated Skorts you can easily pair with any cute top in your wardrobe. And don't worry about exposing anything because it comes with built-in shorts for added security.

Elongate your legs in a pair of flared yoga pants.

Baleaf Laureate Crossover Fleece Flared Pants

Pairing flared yoga pants with bodycon tops creates a striking contrast, embracing your curves and allowing you to tuck them seamlessly into the waistband for a flattering silhouette that highlights your figure.

Go for tops in either solid hues or patterns that harmonize with the color of your trousers. Elevate the ensemble by adding heels or platform shoes to elongate your legs. This versatile combination is an excellent choice for making a stylish statement both at work and in your daily activities.

Look confident and feel comfortable in our pair of Laureate Crossover Fleece Flared Pants on your special night with your SO.

What Shoes To Wear on a Date Night From Work

The selection of shoes for a first date should primarily consider the season, time of day, planned activity, and your outfit. Crucially, prioritize comfort to avoid struggling to walk or experiencing pain from ill-fitting shoes or overly high heels.

For casual date night outfits, consider the confidence boost that a pair of heels can provide. Ultimately, finding the right balance between style and comfort is key for a successful and enjoyable first date.
