6 SUMMER DATE NIGHT DRESSES

There’s only a few measly weeks left of summer (you know I’m right, admit it), so I think we should all be making the most of our Fridays by heading out on the town as much as possible! Whether it’s a few drinks by the river, a romantic dinner for two, or a cosy cinema date, I’ve found six of the most perfect date night dresses that need to get in your wardrobe pronto.

1. THE TROPICAL PRINT

Madison Print Dress, Oliver Bonas £30

Bright, fun and flirty, I love this dress from OB. Ok, I love all dresses from OB but especially this one.

Wear it: with cute flats for a drink and walk along the river

2. THE CROCHET DRESS

Fashion Union Crochet Dress, ASOS £32

Picking up on the seventies and LWD trends that are super hot this summer, you’ve got to love this boho crochet dress.

Wear it: with gladiators to your local festival or outdoor gig

3. THE FLORAL MIDI

Summer Floral Midi, Warehouse £45

Who doesn’t love a midi? Perfect for day-time dates!

Wear it: with wedge espadrilles to Saturday brunch

4. THE BODYCON DRESS

Floral Print Scuba Bodycon Dress, ASOS £31.50

Bear with me on this one.. this is bodycon with style! Scuba fabric has plenty of stretch, making this a sexy but not slutty choice.

Wear it: with heels for a romantic dinner

5. THE MAXI DRESS

Tea Maxi Dress in Floral, ASOS £55

Every girl needs at least one maxi in her wardobe this summer (the more the better I say!) and I adore this cute floral tea style from ASOS. Perfect for showing off those pins

Wear it: drinks on the roof terrace

6. THE TWO-PART DRESS

Torchlit Floral Dress, Ted Baker £179

For those evenings when you need something a little bit special, this two-part dress from Ted Baker ticks all the boxes, smart, classy and fun!

After a decade-long career in corporate interior design, I took a giant leap of faith, left the security of an office job, and founded B.LOVED in 2011 as a platform for romantic and beautiful wedding inspiration. Thanks to a whole lot of creativity, hard work and passion, my gamble paid off and B.LOVED became one of the leading wedding blogs in the UK.

You’ll also find me working as an Editorial Stylist, where I design and curate beautiful photoshoots for wedding and lifestyle brands, as well as contributing as a founding member of bridal inspiration hub Aisle Society, and running wedding industry community the B.LOVED Hive from our super pretty base in London. Yep, I definitely have the best job in the world.
