There's a reason the little black dress is a such a classic. We went through our closets and pulled out our top three favorites for date night.

Express Banded Sleeveless Dress, $79.50
Don't think you can pull off banded spandex? Think again. The fabric on this frock (pictured) is just thick enough to hold everything in while still hugging every curve, and is a perfect fit whether you're a slim size two or voluptuous 12.
Wear On: The first date. This sexy number is one of our go-to first date staples and never fails to get a compliment and a jaw drop. First Date Dos and Don'ts

How to Wear It: Dress up this LBD with a pop of color. Go for bright, candy-colored heels, but keep your highest pumps at home—the dress is sexy enough on its own. And a tip for the busty ladies: if you're a D-cup or larger, try layering a black camisole underneath to keep the girls from falling out onto the dinner table.

Calvin Klein Quintessential Shirt Dress, $78
A crisp shirt dress is a wardrobe essential, and this one from Calvin Klein holds a special place in our hearts and closets. The tie belt cinches the waist and the puffed cap sleeves take the look from basic to super chic.

Wear On: A desk-to-drinks date—just pack a change of accessories! Date Night Dress Code

How to Wear It: Add jewelry and undo a top button to take this look from office-chic and meeting-appropriate to date night sexy without a complete change of clothes. Pair with big earrings and bigger pumps—we love flesh-toned heels for extra sex appeal—on your way out of the office to make happy hour extra happy when he lays eyes on you.

American Apparel Fine Jersey T Dress, $26
American Apparel can be hard to pull off if you're not a dancer or a hipster, but loose-fitting up top and snug on the hips and booty, this casual and comfortable jersey cotton dress is perfect for a just-something-I-threw-on, effortlessly gorgeous look.

Wear On: A casual night out. First Date Conversation Topics

How to Wear It: This dress is a chameleon—set the mood with jewelry and shoes. Pair it with basic flats, minimal jewelry, and a cardigan for a casual venue, or dress it up with high heels, a bright statement necklace, and a fitted jacket for a night out on the town.
