As a shorter lady, you have a hard enough time finding trend pieces that fit for your day to day. You don’t need the added pressure of finding the perfect outfit in petite sizes for a special evening out. No matter what stage you’re at in the dating game, the clothes you wear out should have you feeling comfortable and confident in every scenario. To ensure your wowing your significant (or not-so-significant) other on dates 1, 2, 3 or even 400, we’ve curated a few of our favorite date night outfits for petites.

Read on for surefire looks that will keep you from worrying about what to wear when you’re getting ready to spend time with someone special.

The Coffee Date Outfit

Whether you’re keeping it casual for the first few dates or just trying to fit in some FaceTime during busier weeks, the coffee or cafe hang can be a tricky feat. Quit cuffing a pair of jeans that you know are too long (but, of course, hug your curves just right). Try this combo for the perfect balance of relaxed polish. The crop sweater, skinny jeans and ankle boot combo is a casual ensemble that still looks very pulled together. Oh, and the perfect accessory? Your latte of course.

Dinner & Drinks Date Outfit

Part of the fun of date night is getting a little dolled up. When you’ve spent a few too many nights on Netflix in PJs with each other, it’s time to a little glam for dinner and cocktails. Pull out a strappy little dress or sultry jumpsuit, then slide into some heels — you’ll be falling for each other all over again in this romantic single silhouette.

The Main Event

Once you’ve secured your status, you will become the designated +1. That means you’re on-call for office parties, family events, weddings and more. Petite girls are already known to have problems in the dress department, and when it’s an important occasion, the pressure mounts even more. Skip the added cost of a talented seamstress or repeated visits to the tailor with these petite-minded cocktail and formal numbers.
