The trick for date night dressing is balance. You don’t want the look to feel too intense, just the perfect amount of feminine night-out flavor that gives you a must-have for any outfit: confidence. If the dress is super leggy, opt for a higher neckline. If, as in this look, you’ve got a lot of decolletage action happening, go for a longer hem. You really can’t go wrong with a black dress for date night, especially at this time of year. Add tights and your favorite leather moto as temps continue to drop.
This dress is actually a wonder. Not only is it versatile, playing host to one of my favorite vintage Chanel chain belts and some of the most knockout heels ever, but it’s also incredibly affordable (under $80!) while still managing to feel like a luxe item. I love these little impressive moments from Mango, and I’m telling you—they’re going to save your party circuit season.
You could also style this beauty with a great slouch boot if it’s extra chilly outside (or if you just want to wear your great slouch boots), and the gorgeous neckline created by the dress is the perfect canvas for lots of accessories—or none at all.
When you keep a versatile style like this one in rotation this season, date night is effortlessly your oyster. Mmm oysters.
