Date night dressing: The slinkiest slip and luxury lace dresses to wear this weekend

Granted, we may have grown far too accustomed to spending obscene amounts of time curled up in our pajamas over the course of multiple lockdowns, but silky nightgowns and lace negligees don’t really count — do they?!

When it comes to date night apparel, boudoir dressing is never going to go out of style. The timeless allure of swishy silk-satin dresses and the playful appeal of intricate lace designs allow for nightwear to be easily translated into elegant evening wear.

An ideal option for Valentine’s day, these dresses can be styled to suit your personality to a tee. So, whether you’re opting for a slingback heel and fur coat or a chunky boot and oversized blazer, that flirty charm will be effortlessly evident.

A novel way to embrace that innermost feminine energy, you can lean into the loved up-ness (it’s a word) of this Hallmark holiday with or without a paramour, because at the end of the day, self-love is paramount.

Shop our edit of silk slips and lingerie-esque lace dresses below to look and feel incredible this weekend…
