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.

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

(Photo: Fairchild Archive)

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.

    • Hmm, maybe this is why Trump doesn't want to attend the White House Correspondents' Dinner

      On Saturday, Donald Trump made history as only the third president to bow out of the White House Correspondents' Dinner. And while this has much to do with Trump's ever-worsening battle with the press and his constant struggle to book talent, it's also worth remembering that, to be frank, Trump probably has another reason for ditching: He usually gets clobbered at these things. So, in the interest of, uh, elucidation, please enjoy these videos of Trump getting roasted at the 2011 and 2016 White House Correspondents' Dinner. Better yet, enjoy Trump's mirthless reactions. They're uncomfortable to watch, but extremely worth it. SEE ALSO: An exclusive look at Donald Trump's Twitter drafts for Oscar night First, here's President Obama clapping back at Trump's relentless "birther" conspiracy-mongering. The Lion King is involved. Next, observe Seth Meyers insisting that Trump must be running for president as a "joke." Trump does not smile. And here's Obama ripping on The Apprentice.  Finally, here's a delightful compilation of all the best Trump burns from the 2016 dinner.  A Larry Wilmore highlight: "Yeah, Trump's campaign is inspiring ... mass violence." (Trump did not attend that one, BTW.) So, there you have it. While we're not sure about the future of this year's event, we'll always have those stunners to fall back on.  And you can always zoom in on this cursed image while listening to "Sound of Silence."

    • Jerk alligator steals a huge fish off a little boy's line

      Today, a little boy named Connor learned the brutal lesson that Mother Nature has no manners. In a clip posted to the Bass Masters And Fish Experts Facebook Page, a thieving alligator had an easy lunch thanks to some humans fishing off a pier. In the clip, a young boy hooks a pretty sizable fish, and as one man encourages the boy to reel in the fish all on his own, another spots an alligator lurking near the pier. The man tries to distract the gator by hitting the side of the pier with his arm, but the reptile was determined to get its eats. "You need to cut your line," one the of the men tells the little boy as the gator swims away with his catch.  Although it's unclear where the incident occurred, many commenters insisted it happened in Florida.  [h/t: UPI ] BONUS: Giant nets harvest fog to solve water crisis in Morocco

    • Transgender wrestler wins Texas championship for girls

      (Reuters) - Mack Beggs, a 17-year-old high school wrestler who is transitioning from female to male, took home gold in the 110-weight class of the Texas girls state championship after the state refused to allow the student to compete against boys. The University Interscholastic League, which governs school sports in Texas, said the state's education code allows the use of a banned drug such as steroids if it "is prescribed by a medical practitioner for a valid medical purpose." Beggs' win came days after the Trump administration revoked landmark guidance to public schools letting transgender students use the bathrooms of their choice, reversing a signature initiative of former Democratic President Barack Obama. Beggs, a junior at Trinity High School in the Dallas suburb of Euless, had a 52-0 record ahead of the weekend tournament and was favored to win the high school championship in his weight class.

The deputy ambassador also said Aishah was given 400 Malaysian ringgits (about $90) for her role.
