Look 1 – Jeans
A one shoulder top flashes just the right amount of skin, and pairing it with denim will make it feel less dressy. Opt for looser fitting mom jeans over skinnies for a more relaxed feel.
Look 2 – Mini Skirt
If you’re going for a short hemline, cover up everywhere else to balance the look. A plain black roll neck looks effortlessly chic, while a heeled boot elongates the leg more casually than classic courts.
Look 3 – Slip Dress
A slip is one of the easiest ways to wear a dress on a date but still look understated – keep it pared back with a simple long coat and a low heel, before finishing with a red lip for subtle glamour.
Look 4 – Leather Trousers
If you’re not into skirts or dresses, opting for leather trousers ensures you look dressed up but still feel comfortable. Wear an oversized blazer buttoned up for a cool androgynous vibe, and don’t be afraid to display a flash of a lace bralet to keep the look feminine.

Look 5 - Mini Dress
When opting for a mini dress, avoid anything too skin tight for a more grown up feel. Give this floral number a tough edge with a classic biker and heeled boots.
