The Best Date Night Tops. Ever.

It’s 5pm on a Friday night. Your hubby or boyfriend is on his way home to sweep you off of your feet for date night. You shut down the computer for the evening and stroll into your bedroom. You open your closet assuming that something new will magically appear. Something super sexy and cool. But the reality is that you are staring at the same jeans, cardigans and date night tops that have been on rotation for a while. Sound familiar? It is going to be OK and please know you are not alone.

These tops that we are about to show you are pretty hot, and will make your favorite pair of jeans look super exciting again. You can also wear them with your favorite pair of black pants and heels, and you’re good to go! It just goes to show that you don’t always have to buy a whole new outfit. Sometimes a brand new, sexy top is all you need to improve upon what you’ve already got. Here are some great date night tops to choose from:

pretty in pink

This little number by Willow & Clay strikes just the right balance of naughty and nice. With sheer lace and a shimmery floral motif, this shoulder-baring top will certainly add some excitement to your favorite pair of jeans.

off the shoulder

There is something very sexy about a shoulder baring silhouette in a casual fabrication. I love this one shoulder pullover from Revolve. Did someone say dinner and a movie?

it’s a wrap

This is such a pretty statement top in a comfy, effortless lightweight fabric. I’m infatuated with the open back and the modern look of the wide short sleeves. Thank you Free People for this one. If you are hitting a casual, local restaurant, just throw this top on with a pair of jeans. For a dressier look, wear it with a pair of black pants and your favorite heels.

velvet crush

This smocked velvet top from Urban Outfitters hugs your curves in all the right places. It’s topped with a straight neckline with off-the-shoulder short sleeves and finished with ruffle trim detailing throughout. You can definitely wear this one all year round. It’s perfect for Happy Hour with the girls too.

smooth as silk

Nothing says come hither like a silky blouse with an off the shoulder neckline and a sweet spaghetti strap closure. If you are feeling the red vibe, go for it and throw on your favorite red lipstick. And voila, you are ready for date night. Just like that.


The moral of this story is that you do not need to get rid of everything in your closet to spice things up for date night. All of these tops that I selected are under $200, so you can grab one or even two without breaking the bank.
