The Women’s Guide to Date Night Outfits

There’s nothing like date night! Check out our guide to help you pull together an effortlessly coordinated date night outfit, down to the handbag.

There’s nothing like date night! Whether it’s a heart-pulsing first date or a weekly romantic appointment with that special someone, part of the ritual is getting date-night ready. 

When pulling together date night looks, you want it to be effortlessly coordinated: your outfit, your shoes, and your handbag all play their part. At Brahmin we have an extensive collection of purses and handbags to help you pull your date night outfits together so you feel sensational all date long.


Planning a day of fun outdoor activities, like a few rounds of mini-golf? Top your casual look with a crossbody bag. This handbag style keeps your hands free for all the fun activities you and your date have planned. Add a little spark to your casual look with a crossbody in a bold colorful print. Since you probably won’t need too many items on hand for a casual outing, you may want to opt for a mini crossbody. Clocking in at 7.5 x 6 in., Brahmin’s mini takes up little space so you can spend more time getting close to the person with you.

Laidback & Relaxed

For date nights where you’re keeping things cozy and casual – maybe a night at a drive-in movie and snuggling under the stars – a lightweight shoulder bag is ideal. One with a zip-top closure allows for easy access to your date-night essentials. A shoulder bag in fiery red energizes the laid-back uniform of dark denim and a white tee.


For those sophisticated date nights when you pull out your favorite little black dress or a tailored suit, you can elevate your handbag with any of these choices:

Structured Satchel.

Great for a night out on the town, try one cut from smooth leather in evening-ready black.  

Modern Bucket Bag.

Get a stylish bucket bag with a turn-lock closure. It will keep your necessities secure while you take a romantic evening stroll.

Cute Clutch Purse.

If you’re planning to dance the night away, a clutch purse will have you light on your toes. Small enough to clasp in your hand, just slip it onto your wrist and hit the dance floor in style.


You’re not only going out for date night, you’re stepping out for a special occasion. Since tonight is going to be an event, it calls for a glorious date night outfit that is picture-perfect ready, right down to your handbag. Bring on the bling with a sophisticated wristlet pouchette. With its buckle closure adorned with premium Swarovski crystals, it’s perfect for a special evening out. Or you can light up the night with an envelope clutch in starry silver or glorious gold shades.


What To Bring In Your Purse

What should you carry in your handbag on date night? Start with the essentials: keys, cell phone and breath mints. Here are some extras you can add in your purse:

  • Stain Remover
  • Pain Reliever
