Last night we did a really fun styling session on date day/night outfit ideas!
We did a mix of casual and dressy outfits, mindful of the fact that some of us can't get out and about at the moment so we wanted to inspire you to have a date day/night in your own home if you're currently in a lockdown!
We are LOVING how versatile these pieces are! Most of these expertly selected pieces did casual and dressy date outfits EASILY, with just a switch of the shoes! Sneakers are the casual date outfit best friend, but you can easily switch them for heels and turn most of these outfits into spectacular, knock-his/her-socks off date outfits as well! And an ankle boot proves to be that perfect middle ground - not too dressy, not too casual!
Check out how we styled some of our favourite new items from PE Nation, Camilla, Ginger & Smart and The Upside in both casual and dressy outfits that'll bring the sparkle back to your eye!
We also have heaps of great lockdown date day/night ideas below too!
Courtney was the perfect case study for date day/night outfits last night because she has THREE dates coming up this weekend (with the same person haha!) and was in desperate need of outfit inspiration! Head on over toour instagramstories to vote on your fave casual and dressy options to help her out!
Enjoy these fab outfits and thegreat date day/night ideaswe have come up with for you and have a wonderful weekend you beautiful humans!
Lots of love

Fun date day/night ideas in lockdown
Lockdowns are not fun but you can do your best with the time you have up your sleeve and invest it in people who mean something to you (restrictions permitting). Here are some of our fave ways to spend time with your special someone in lockdown.
Picnics are one of the easiest things you can do at home - inside on the lounge room floor with a bottle of red wine and candles, or outside under the stars (probably also with a bottle of red haha!). And most of the things you need can be ordered from your local supermarket or grocer and delivered so super lockdown-friendly!
You can choose to go dressy or casual and comfy in for this one. Even a cute PE Nation tracksuit will do! But check out some of our great date night outfits below and get inspired!
In lockdown you miss out on live music and dancing - even those not in lockdown are missing out on live music and dancing in most states at the moment!
So take some time to learn your tech (a HDMI cable is your friend if your TV is not smart enabled!) and hook your laptop up to your tv, find a great live concernt on youtube or the like that you both love, get dressed up in your best party outfits, get some drinks and snacks, and dance the night away to one your favourite artists!
There are smemany online tutorials for dance lessons whether its the foxtrot or salsa you want to learn, get dressed up, grab a bottle of wine, hook your laptop up to the TV as per above and take some dance lessons together! What a beautiful way to laugh and connect!
Bring the restaurant to you!
So many GREAT restaurants are doing takeaway in lockdowns that never did before. Take the chance to order some amazing takeaway from one of your favourite restaurants (or try a new one!), get dressed up and make a night of it!
Cooking lessons or cook-your-own takeaway
Like the dance lessons, you can find online cooking lessons or youtube videos, purchase all your ingredients, get dressed up and prepare a beautiful meal together that you can sit and enjoy. Put some music on, light some candles and ENJOY each other!
Some great restaurants are also doing fun cook-your-own deliveries where you can learn some of their signature dishes! We are LOVING Chin Chin who are delivering to Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide regularly at the moment and offering a full smorgasboard of their incredible dishes that you'd normally have to head into the restaurant to get! Check out their offering here!
Have a cocktail party!
Chin Chin are also offering boxed cocktail kits or you can learn your own via the internet! Get mixing, get dressed up, turnup the music, dance and ENJOY!
Do a wine tasting!
Now's a great time to discover a new winery, order a bottle each of their offering and sit at home and taste each one. Ask for their tasting notes as well! Most wineries will be more than happy to oblige!
There are also plenty of great wine education/tutorial videos online if you really want to get into it!
Go old school and get the board games or cards out (or order some new ones!). We forget how fun these nights are! Treat yourself to some great wine and some delicious snacks and enjoy the simplicity of things we forget to do when life gets in the way.
Now that you have plenty of ideas, here's some hot new outfit inspo!
The brand new Camilla Belle of the Baroque Oversized Tee is the PERFECT date night outfit - it does casual (with a bit of spark) and dressy EASILY!
Such a fun tee for a date night!
So many great looks can be created with this gorgeous tee!
Including a very sexy little mini dress look!
The brand new Camilla Belle of the Baroque Double Frill Hem Skirt is a GLORIOUS choice for date night! Fun and feminine, and can be dressed down or up!
Here we paired it with the Camilla Belle of the Baroque Oversized Tee, ankle boots and the Ginger & Smart Horizon Trench Coat for a dressy casual day date outfit!
If you want super girly, fun and flirty, the brand new Camilla At First Sight (FITTING!) Drop Shoulder Top and matching Double Frill Maxi Skirt is THE ONE!
The brand new Camilla Belle of the Baroque Silk Scoop Neck Tee Dress is a brilliant date look! Dress it down with sneakers and the And the Queen Wore Red Cross Body Box Bag for a fun date look!
Or dress it up with the Dylan Kain Wax Bag and Camilla Block Heels!
But be quick - this tee dress is ALMOST SOLD OUT!
The Ginger & Smart Horizon Trench Coat (available in ecru or navy) proved a very handy addition to date day/night wardrobes doing casual and dressy with ease!
We LOVE the stylish edge it gives this simple tee and jeans combo! (this is the brand new PE Nation Game Day Tee and Nobody Denim Frankie Jean - currently on super sale!)
And the elevated looks it does too! Trench coats can be fun not just stylish and sophisticated! Look how fun this outfit is paired with the Camilla Call of the Cathedral One Shoulder Kaftan front-tucked into our favourite 2ndskin Hope Leather Leggings!
The Andean Collective Loretta Rainbow Skirt and Lara Tie Knit are a super cute date day/night outfit as well - very comfy and gorgeously casual with a special lift that makes you feel like a Queen!
And you can't really go passed a Camilla kaftan for an easy-breezy and super luxe date night outfit (that also gives you plenty of room to eat, drink and be merry! Our fave kind of date night outfits!). And isn’t this the most divine kaftan you’ve ever seen?! This is the Camilla Bell of the Baroque Round Neck Kaftan - a luxe floral print and HEAVILY embellished! We are obsessed! That Dylan Kain Wax Bag and Camilla Block Heel combo are killing it with this look as well!
