I like mono-strap styles because they show off your biceps and teases your date. Its giving see me but don’t see me if you know what I mean. It’s a very sophisticated style and will work perfectly as a date night style. What do you think?
Strapless African Print High Low midi dress
The easiest way to stay sexy all night is wearing a strapless ankara dress, its girlie, fun and sassy. Pairing with high heel sandals, a lovely clutch bag and putting your hair up in a ponytail will give a fresh look to this style.
V neck Embellished African Print Maxi dress
Maxi dresses are my least favourite for a date night look because I would like to feel comfortable at dinner, but you might like it, so if you opt for a long gown, then get one with a slit so it shows off some legs.
