20 of the best date-night dresses

Dressed to impress
Julia Roberts and Richard Gere in Pretty Woman, 1990

Whether your weekend plans involve a romantic meal with your significant other or a night dancing ’til dawn with your crew, the dress code calls for a chic yet knockout dress. To add a subtly sexy twist to your ‘out-out’ attire, try a little red dress – the LBD’s bolder, braver counterpart. The long sleeves and high neck of Monse’s midi style ensure the overall look is demure, while the cutout shoulders give it a power-piece feel.

For sophistication with a twist, look to Michelle Mason and Cushnie. Dialing up the drama, Cushnie’s silky, one-shouldered, asymmetric dress in jade green is a statement-maker for any events where you might bump into someone you’d like to impress (or an ex you’d like to depress). And when it comes to high-octane glamour, Oscar de la Renta doesn’t disappoint. Since being appointed co-creative directors of the label in 2016, Laura Kim and Fernando Garcia (the design duo also behind Monse) have been creating dresses that turn every head in the room. More of a minimalist? You’ll love the sleek designs from Haider Ackermann, Loewe, Mugler and Tom Ford.
