You’ve got your shoes, dress, and makeup organised. Then, you reach for your date night handbag only to find that it doesn’t quite match your outfit. We’ve all been there. Rather than leaving your date night bag as an afterthought, why not plan ahead and feel confident any time a romantic occasion arises?

You don’t have to struggle to squeeze your lipstick and phone into your clutch for date night anymore. There are now countless date night bag options that you can explore for your next evening affair. Whether it’s a first date, dinner date, or movie date, you should be more focused on enjoying the experience than worrying about what you’re wearing. That’s why we’ve created a stunning selection of handbags that easily transition from your everyday wardrobe into date night.

The best date night handbags are big enough to carry your essentials (lipstick, wallet, phone, and keys), yet small enough to make your ensemble feel special. Most importantly, they will help you feel confident and keep any unnecessary butterflies at bay.

Date Night Bags

Mid-Week Date

Life gets busy and sometimes a mid-week date night is the best way to shake up the working week. Whether you’re trying to fit a Bumble date into your social schedule or it’s your one night off from the kids, if you’re heading out for a mid-week date night you’re probably going to be leaving in a rush.

You might not have time to go home after work for an outfit change or could be heading straight out to your date after dropping the kids home from school.

If so, then having a chic tote bag  in your wardrobe will always leave you feeling prepared. The larger size of a tote bag has the potential to overwhelm your date night outfit, so opt for one with structure and interesting details. 

The Manhattan Tote Bag is a beautiful neutral tote that you can easily pair with your favourite date night outfits. It has a classic structured shape which looks considered and feminine. You can also easily tuck away your laptop if you’ve met your date straight after work.

Formal Date

Maybe you’re celebrating a milestone and heading out for an extra special evening. Picture the ballet, theatre, or the best restaurant you can find. If that’s the case, you’ll want to have a formal date night handbag that meets the dress code. 

Mini handbags or clutch bags  tend to fit the bill. Evening bags  with metallic details that match your favourite jewellery will be easy to style no matter what you decide to wear.

The Pixie Crossbody Bag is perfect for formal affairs. It has a modern envelope silhouette, smooth vegan leather exterior, and a striking light gold buckle. This minimalist style can be worn as a clutch or crossbody bag depending on your style.

First Date

First dates are all about first impressions and are full of butterflies. Since the first date sets the scene and brings so many unknowns, you’ll likely find yourself heading out somewhere casual, yet romantic. If you’re navigating the dating scene, you could be going out for lots of dinners and coffee dates. That's why a handbag with understated elegance will become your new best friend. 

Look for something that you can dress up or down and mix and match to your heart’s desire. A classic shoulder bag is perfect for your first date and will make you look and feel effortless. You can easily pair it with whatever outfit makes you feel your best that night and look the part wherever the evening takes you.

The Diaz Shoulder Bag  comes in a variety of neutral tones that are easy to style. You can wear it as a shoulder bag or crossbody bag, depending on how you want to style your outfit. 

Dinner Date

A dinner date night is complete with good food, good wine, good company, and a great bag. New foods and mood lighting are all part of the experience and there is a strong chance you will have to touch up your lipstick after sipping the night away.

That means you want a petite, yet manageable bag that fits neatly beside you on your chair. Most of all, you want the evening to be memorable and a handbag with subtle details will make your dinner date night outfit feel special, let understated.

We love the Harlow Crossbody Bag for its delicate lacing feature and simple envelope style. If you're looking for a bag with a modern aesthetic, try the Marley Shoulder Bag, which features on-trend powder coated hardware and doubles as a slouchy clutch.

Enjoy the Moment

Life is there to be enjoyed and date nights are an exciting way to celebrate a special occasion. Whether you're sparking up your romance or simply getting to know someone new, the more confident you feel, the more you can relax and enjoy the moment.
