We can always count on the ever-so-stylish Chung to turn out a flawless date night outfit. At a recent Alice + Olivia event, she tucked a white blouse into a feminine full skirt, and accessorized with the brand’s printed clutch and pointy-toed heels.

Sure, being a supermodel helps with the whole awesome date outfit thing, but Huntington-Whiteley’s ensemble at a Violet Grey event last month is achievable for anyone. She paired a printed Chloe dress with lace-up boots for a look that was some parts boho and all parts perfect.
