With the month of love around the corner I’m sure dates and date nights have started creeping up on all of our minds. This post is all about showing off some pretty stunning formal date night dresses in case you want to show up and show out on your fancy date night!
(Personally, I’m the type of person that enjoys planning and executing a good date night but being surprised with a good date is pretty fun too!). I mean who doesn’t enjoy a good date night? It doesn’t matter if it is a first date or one of many, there is a thrill that comes with going out with someone that you really like.
Dates obviously come in so many different forms and most of the time it really shouldn’t matter what you’re doing as long as you’re having fun with your partner. But that said though there is something really special about a formal date night. They take a little bit more effort to plan out and the process of preparing for them is a little bit more involving. But weirdly that’s what makes them more enjoyable. From what makeup you put on, to what outfit you wear. Formal date nights definitely require that little bit of extra effort but they are so worth it.
You might be wondering what exactly constitutes a formal date night? I’m sure we all have an image in mind when we picture a fancy night out… Most of us obviously picture something that involves a date around activities that we would consider formal. Like going to a fancy restaurant, or a ball, a luxury boat ride or maybe even visiting an upscale art gallery, that sort of thing…
There are definitely plenty of opportunities to dress up and go out with your partner. And if you think about it a formal date night is the perfect excuse to get yourself a fancy new dress!
Formal Date Night Dresses That Will Have You Feeling Fancy and Sexy on Your Night Out
This long black dress is such a simple, classic and sexy number. You know how everyone says you need a little black dress in your closet? I feel like this is fancy, floor length version of that sentiment. You need a simple, yet gorgeous fancy black dress that you can break out on the days when you want to feel a little glamourous.
There is something so glamourous about long satin finish dresses, right? This black dress with a plunging neckline is honestly everything you could want in a dress, right? It’s obviously a little bold but that’s what makes it so fun right?
Will never get over velvet dresses for formal events. There is something so classy and elegant about the material. Especially in a beautiful and sexy long off the shoulder dress like this one.
There is something to be said about a good floral print dress. Floral print can be iffy and you can easily look frumpy. There is such a fine distinction between the florals that granny wore back in the day and gorgeous floral prints like the one on this dress!
Off the shoulder dresses are always interesting and they always draw the eye. This gorgeous dress is totally such a great way to show off your shoulders and a little bit more off. It’s simple and sexy and classy and would look so so good with a simple pair of strappy heels.
If you want to opt for something short instead of floor length with a little bit of a different style then you have to take a look at this little black cape-like dress. It’s the type of dress you wear on a night when you want to feel a little powerful, a little different and a little sexy.
Are you even doing things right if you don’t consider getting a sexy red floor length dress at least once in your life? Red is everyone’s color, so if you’re feeling a little hot and a little bold, then you gotta try out a dress like this at least once!
This long blue velvety dress with a sexy lace up back is so stunning. Honestly you can’t go wrong with a velvety dress, the material is so forgiving. That plus the cowl neckline and the corset waist just add to the whole effect, keeping and accentuating everything the way it needs to be.
It doesn’t have to always be floor-length dresses when you want to go out on a fancy date. In fact you can have more fun and feel more sexy with a short little dress. This short black dress gives everything it needs to give for a formal date night. It’s classy, fancy and flirty.
Sequins are always fun right? Try this fun strapless black sequined dress on your night out, it’s definitely an eye-catcher.
This one shoulder flowy blue dress is definitely something that you can picture yourself wearing on a fun night out. It is the type of dress that is sophisticated but that you can totally have fun in.
I don’t know if I have already mentioned this but there is just something so interesting about halter neck dresses. They give off this elegant vibe especially in dresses like this one. This iridescent green halter dress combines elegance with fun and color.
You know what? This dress just shows that there is nothing to be afraid of when it comes to color or sparkles. It’s so tempting to just stick to blacks when it comes to formal wear, but this gorgeous green sequined one shoulder dress shows that there is absolutely nothing to be afraid of!
Sometimes going simple is better. You cannot go wrong with a simple black ribbed maxi dress like this one. It’s like a beautiful blank canvas for styling simply because of how easy it is to pick accessories that will look good with it…
A show stopping dress that is sure to turn heads. This navy blue body-hugging dress with the ruffle hem is a little bit different from all the other dresses in this post. That’s just because blue is a little bit of a more serious, but it is still totally a gorgeous dress for when you want to try out something a little bit different.
I can’t lie sometimes rhinestones look tacky as hell but with a dress like this black turtleneck midi with transparent sleeves they look so good…
This is a simple, classic, floor length black dress with a thigh-high slit, a plunging neckline and a cinched waist. I mean what more could you want from a dress?
Who says that you have to be afraid of color? Dresses like this light blue shirt dress always look so pretty on the body. I mean it’s fun, it’s flirty and with some cute heels and some well chosen accessories, this would be such a beautiful dress to wear on a fancy night out.
There is something so effortless chic and stylish about a satin dress. Especially one like this lilac strapless dress. It’s like you just slip a dress like this on and you instantly feel slinky and beautiful.
This floor length black velvety cut out dress is everything you would want in a dress. It’s got a bit of coverage at the top with the turtleneck neckline, if you like a bit of coverage up-top and then a sexy little peak of skin with the waist with the cute out. And that’s not even getting started on the thigh high split.
