We all know that dating can be daunting, but deciding what to wear doesn’t have to be.
Whether you’re keeping it casual or going for glamour, it’s time to retire those cable knits, lose the layering and flash just the right amount of flesh for warm weather dating.
If you’re stuck for inspiration and find your closet full of lacklustre options, look no further: ELVI has the answer…
The Casual Coffee Date
Coffee means casual so keeping it simple is always a safe option; think relaxed staples and classic hues for style that screams laid-back cool. Don’t confuse simple with boring though; this quirky Beige Tunic will add playfulness to your favourite pair of skinny jeans whilst tapping into this season’s asymmetric trend. Pair with slip-ons and keep hair and makeup low key.
The Summer Picnic
With warmer weather finally on the horizon, there’s no better time to take your date into the great outdoors. Keep it flirty by embracing feminine florals, romantic pleats, and an array of soft summery hues for sugary sweet style that’s good enough to eat. For lady-like sophistication worthy of the poshest of picnics, we love this nude floral midi skirt and high neck vest combo.
If you’re planning on spending the night cuddling up on the sofa watching Netflix, comfort is key, but that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice on the style stakes. Choose wide leg trousers for an on-trend silhouette that’s slouchy but chic, and pair with a similarly relaxed camisole. We love this two piece co-ord of our Boho Print Trousers and Cami for their laid back, youthful aesthetic.
The Cinema Date
It can be tempting to dress down when going to the cinema but avoid tracksuits and t-shirts at all costs; the lights may go down but a minimal effort isn’t going make your other half swoon with desire when they go up again. Instead, opt for a chic leather skirt and vest combo that’s dressy enough to wow without seeming overdone. We love our Cream Faux Leather Skirt that shows just the right amount of flesh. Pair with chunky ankle boots and a black high neck vest.
The Trendy Bar Date
Sizzle with sex appeal as you sip on cocktails in our Ice Blue Snake Print Overlay Dress, the perfect piece for the trendiest of late-night hangouts. The pale blue hue compliments a burgeoning Spring/Summer tan, whilst the sheer black panelling draws attention to your waist and away from your hips. The overlay detailing continues this illusion, whilst also playing into one of this season’s hottest trends to ensure that all eyes are firmly on you. Wear with a chic pair of heels and accessorise with silver jewellery.

Whilst elegant dresses have long ruled supreme, a modern alternative for a romantic dinner date is a sleek and structured jumpsuit. For ultimate sophistication, we love our Jumpsuit with its contrasting block colours and figure-flattering overlay – there’s no need to feel guilty about a second (or even third) course when careful layering will hide the damage – and the wide leg style is super on-trend; just make sure you pair it with leg-lengthening stilettos to avoid swamping your frame.
