We all want to look good on date night, but sometimes it can be difficult to figure out what to wear- whether that’s a relaxed Netflix and chill night in to a drinks and dinner with a new flame. What the key to striking the balance between effortless but chic? We turned to none other than Mihlali Ndamase, one of our very favourite South African BellaStylistas, and one of the biggest influencers on the continent to get some much-needed inspiration.
We reckon these three date night outfits will tick all the boxes for almost any situation. Whether you’re headed out for coffee and a day at the museum or a night out for drinks, these Mihlali inspired date night outfits will make you feel confident, look great, and impress your date (not to mention yourself)!
Mesh Top + Midi Skirt
A sequin snake skin skirt is something we never knew we needed, but now we are completely obsessed! Paired with a mesh top like in Mihlali’s look, the ladylike midi skirt takes on a sultry edge. Perfect for a night of dinner and drinks.
Jumpsuit + Statement Jewelry
The utility jumpsuit is back and better than ever, and Mihlali’s bubblegum pink version is perfect for a daytime date. We particularly love her tonal makeup, paired with gold statement earrings.
Monochromatic Polkadots + Black Pants
Mihlali gives us a master class in playing with proportions in this look featuring a puff sleeve flocked tulle top with a Parisian chic monochrome collar and matching black pants. We love this look for a night out at the theatre.
