Date Night? 4 Divine Looks For Dining In Style This Summer

STELLAR PROMOTION: Get ready for your next date with a little help from Next!

With staycation season in full swing, indoor dining now back on the cards for many and nights out starting to replace nights in, it’s safe to say we’re all buzzing to finally dress up and go to places that aren’t the local supermarket.

From romantic date night dinners to cocktails and a catch up with the girls, seeing a little life in our social calendars feels good, but knowing what to wear can sometimes be tricky.

After a very long stint in joggers and hoodies, it can often be hard to think of outfits that are not only cute and chic, but versatile so they can be worn again and again. Thankfully, thanks to Next, we don’t have to think because they’ve got plenty of glam pieces for making that return to normality a show stopping one.

From statement items like blazers and crisp shirts to summery dresses and interchangeable bags, Next has all the pieces and brands you need when it comes to finding an outfit for dining out in style.

Want to know what STELLAR loves? Here’s some looks we’ve put together from Next.

NEXT currently sells over 100 beauty brands on creating a premium retail experience for Beauty, to complement the offer NEXT already carries through its online business.

Date night dinner

The simple drop earrings add a little glam, but the statement dress does all the talking!
