Putting an outfit together is so complicated if you don’t have great bones to your wardrobe.  What do I mean by “great bones”, you may ask?  I mean solid staple pieces that can work with different clothing items to create countless looks.  I talked about closet staple pieces in this post and this post, both of which are about pieces that can transition from business casual to everyday casual.  But what about those pieces that can transition from any time to date night?

Date night looks call for a bit of a sexier approach.  Who wants to look like they’re attending a board room meeting when really they’re headed out on a smokin’ hot date?  Not me.  By purchasing a few classic staples, you can have a multitude of looks at your fingertips.  For this look, the hero piece is the off-the-shoulder black bodysuit.  I bought mine several months ago at a LA boutique, but I did find this one from ASOS which is almost identical.  I’ve said a million times before, there’s nothing sexier than a little clavicle.

Another staple is a maxi skirt.  Maxi skirts are great for this transitional time between summer and fall, especially if you’re in a climate that gets chilly a night.  I love the knot detail of this skirt and it’s currently on sale for only $26.  I like the idea of a maxi skirt for date night because it’s unexpected.  When you think date night, you typically think LBD or mini skirt.  A maxi skirt can be just as stylish with a fitted top.

You’d think there was something wrong if I forgot to mention the heels.  Strappy heels are something you’ll never regret having in your closet.  They go with everything from a mini dress to a pair of boyfriend jeans.

Oh, and I can’t forget the statement earrings.  I love the combo of messy curls with a pair of bring, bold earrings!  This pair is a little on the pricey side, but they are absolutely showstoppers.  You notice them from across the room.  They’re not as heavy to wear as they look, which is a must for me.  Anyone else suffer from super sensitive lobes?!

What are your classic staples for a date night?  Are you strictly a LBD girl or dress-up-a-pair-of-jeans kinda date night girl?  Leave a comment and let me know your must-have classic date night staple piece!

    Everything about this post is stunning! Your hair is impeccable. Your outfit is so chic. And the location you shot is gorgeous! You never fail to disappoint Angela! Since im in college and date night doesn’t consist of not going anywhere to fancy, my outfit normally consists of jeans and booties. Or in the summer, a dress and sandals
    XO, Kate

    Hi, i wonder if strappy heels are uncomfortable ? I haven’t one at home, because i’m afraid that i woludn’t get with them trought the night. I prefer flat shoes like ballerina or pumps… if i have to look sexier. I get once a maxi skirt and my brother ask me if i want to get a None. Well, i propably get the false upper part. I have never ever put the maxi skirt again on. Maybe it’s time to try it one more time… I like the way you write. Greetings from Munich.

      If you get the right pair, they can be comfortable! The pair I’m wearing in this post isn’t the most comfy, that’s for sure. I’ve heard great things about Sole Serum and that it helps to make any pair of shoes feel better on your feet. Maybe you should look into it!

    Your outfit is stunning and you look beautiful! I’ve always loved your style and this is no exception. Would have never thought of wearing a maxi skirt to a date, but that’s why I love your blog. Keeps giving me new ideas!
    What do you think of off shoulder tops with straps (I think they’re the new trend) as a date option?
