Underneath all that pre-date-night excitement is one anxiety-inducing thought: What am I going to wear?!
But worry not! Just borrow inspiration from these stylish celebrities—behold, 20 easy, charming, and sexy date-night outfit ideas that will totally knock his socks off.

Polished Separates

Sophia Bush shows that your favorite striped tee can be evening-friendly when paired with a mini and a blazer. Pushed-up sleeves and a half-tucked shirt keep the look from being too stuffy.

Sexy Summer Leather

For those of you who want their fellas panting at first sight, a leather (or faux-leather) pencil skirt is the way to go. Wear it with an airy tank and sandals (the strappier, the better!) like Malin Akerman, so you don’t melt in the heat.
















Rock ‘n’ Roll Staples

Rock ‘n’ Roll Staples

For a casual date like bowling or karaoke, skinny jeans and a vintage concert or sports tee are cute and comfy. Add tousled hair like Rachel Roy for a little extra sex appeal.

For those days when you hate everything in your closet, look to Lauren Conrad’s no-fail outfit: curve-hugging little black dress and fun clutch with heels. Boom.


















Romantic Top

A Romantic Top

A floral lingerie-inspired shirt is sultry but not vulgar. Pair the racy top with stovepipe pants to really have him eating out of the palm of your hand.


















Printed Pants

Printed Pants

Think printed pants are only a girl-approved trend? Joan Smalls proves otherwise—show us a guy who wouldn’t be into that!


















Glam Crop Top

A Glam Crop Top

Give your cropped tank a dressed-up feel with a floaty maxiskirt or high-waisted pants. Wear it exactly like Diane Kruger is here—trust us, that minimal sliver of skin delivers maximum hotness.

















A Sweet Dress

That colorful sundress you love can go from day to night in two seconds flat if you throw on a jean jacket and Western-inspired booties. Jessica Alba knows what’s up!

















Colored Denim

Colored Denim

Keep the focus on your legs with perfectly fitted colored jeans. By wearing a simple tank and streamlined accessories—and some sky-high heels!—your legs are all but guaranteed to be the center of attention. 
















Bright Dress

A Bright Dress

For a dressier date night, a cocktail dress in super-flattering shape and a color that complements your skin tone will ensure that both you and your guy know you’re a knockout—just look at Emma Stone!
















Classic Denim and Stripes

Classic Denim and Stripes

When you’re out with your guy, the last thing you want is to be fussing with your outfit the whole time. Stay comfortable with fitted (but not skintight) jeans, a striped tee, and shoes you can walk in.

















Easy Dress

An Easy Dress

On hot, hot, hot days, you want to keep the clothing to a minimum while still leaving something to the imagination! Zooey Deschanel demonstrates it in her fun, floaty dress. After the sun sets, simply wear your sunglasses like a headband to instantly up the cool factor.















Sheer Piece

Sheer Piece

A dress with strategic cutouts or illusion panels is the ideal way to show off some sex appeal. Stick with a simple silhouette and a solid color like Karlie Kloss’ little number. This risky look can be seriously rewarding.
















Miniskirt

Miniskirt

To show off your gorgeous legs, play with proportion and choose a cute miniskirt, tucked-in tank, and shrunken blazer. Selena Gomez added some sparkle and booties for a look that would fit right in anywhere, from a beer garden to a concert.
















Dressy Shorts

Dressy Shorts

A loose top and shorts are your daytime go-to, so why not remix them for evening? Upgrade to a tailored blazer, trouser shorts, and wedges like Christina Ricci for an ensemble that’s as sophisticated as it is fun.
















V-Neck Dress

V-Neck Dress

We hate to break it to you, but you’ve been ignoring one very sexy body part: your collarbone! Show your clavicle some love with a wide V-neckine—and skip the necklace this time. Jordin Sparks gets the idea totally right here: Between that and her flawlessly cinched waist, she’s va-va-voom perfection.














Little White Dress

A LWD

The best way to show off a killer (faux) tan? Bright white! A little white dress is unexpected for nighttime and makes a great canvas for pretty accessories. Follow Emma Watson's lead for an ultra-femme look.
















Monochrome Separates

Monochrome Separates

Don’t be afraid to wear all one color! As Jennifer Lopez proves here, wearing the same shade on top and bottom can be drop-dead gorgeous, especially if it’s a skin-matching neutral. Your shoes can go either way: Match them to the rest of the outfit or pick a completely different hue for a twist..














Bold Print Dress

(Photo: WWD, Steve Eichner)

Bold Print Dress

Dudes aren’t afraid of patterned clothes! A fun frock—like Rachel Bilson's—is attention-getting and shows that you like to have a good time. Still afraid it’s too much for him? Tame the print with a cropped black blazer and matching sandals.
















Your Favorite Piece

Your Favorite Piece

If you normally dress funky, don’t hide that from your guy! A cool, quirky dress like Solange Knowles’ shouldn’t be relegated to the closet just because you’re on a date—in fact, you can amp it up even further with statement accessories.

Daring to wear something unique lets your true style—and personality—shine through.

    • Brie Larson, like everyone else, didn't seem thrilled with Casey Affleck's Oscar win

      As 2016's Best Actress winner, Brie Larson was tasked with presenting the award for Best Actor at the 2017 Academy Awards. On Sunday night, that award went to Casey Affleck for his role in Manchester By the Sea , despite the allegations of sexual harassment against him.

    • PROOF that liberal protesters are paid

      Republican lawmakers across the country have grown wary of holding town hall meetings with constituents. What's scaring these brave public servants? Paid protesters. Specifically, paid liberal protesters. (It's a well-known fact that all conservative protesters are volunteer and have legitimate gripes that must be heard.) Most in the FAKE NEWS media will claim there's no such things as a paid liberal protester. They'll say people are simply turning out to express frustration over GOP policies and because they don't want to lose their health care and die. But I'm here to tell you otherwise: Paid liberal protesters totally exist; it's an excellent career choice with surprisingly good benefits;

Maria Kang, aka “Hot Mom,” who once enraged the Internet by posting a chiseled bikini shot and challenging moms to whip their bodies into prepregnancy shape, is back in the spotlight: She’s calling out a fellow mom for sending women a muddled message about body positivity. On Monday, Kang posted to Facebook a split-screened photo of herself and Taryn Brumfitt, an Australian mother of three whose 2013 before-and-after pregnancy photos went viral after she confessed to preferring her postbaby curves to her prebaby six-pack abs.

    • Report: N. Korea executes officials with anti-aircraft guns for 'enraging' Kim Jong Un

      North Korea executed five senior security officials for making false reports that “enraged” leader Kim Jong Un, South Korea’s Yonhap news agency reported Monday. The five were killed with anti-aircraft guns, the National Intelligence Service said in a private briefing to lawmakers, according to the news agency. It wasn’t immediately clear what the “false reports” were, but they appeared to be unrelated to the assassination of Kim Jong Nam, the estranged half-brother of Kim Jong Un, two weeks ago. Lawmaker Lee Cheol Woo said the officials worked in the department of the former state security chief Kim Won Hong, who was dismissed in January amid allegations of corruption and human rights abuses.

    • Moonlight/La La Land Oscars gaffe: People think Leonardo DiCaprio is to blame for the Best Picture chaos

      Leonardo DiCaprio may have been the star of last year’s Oscars, when he put an end to the #PoorLeo memes by finally winning Best Actor, but the Hollywood favourite has unexpectedly found himself in the spotlight this time around too for his role in the Moonlight/La La Land mixup chaos. In case you’ve missed it, Moonlight won Best Picture, but only after La La Land's name was read out first by presenters Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway. Beatty had somehow ended up with the Best Actress envelope announcing La La Land’s Emma Stone as the winner.

    • This one tweet explains that truly bizarre Oscars Best Picture mixup perfectly

      In what is certainly the weirdest moment in Oscars history, the incorrect Best Picture winner was announced on stage to finish off the 89th Academy Awards. Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway first announced La La Land as the big winner of the night. The cast and crew walked onstage and began to make their speeches, only to be stopped halfway through — the correct winner was actually Moonlight. Comedian Jackie Jennings quickly pointed out a perfect explanation for the bizarre mistake. WAIT BUT THIS IS ACTUALLY THE REAL END OF LA LA LAND AND ITS GREAT #Oscars — Jackie Jennings (@ohhijackie) February 27, 2017 La La Land' s depressing dream sequence finale was oddly similar to the ending of the Oscars.
