For weeks, fans of The Bachelor have convened on couches and by water coolers to recap a drama-packed season. But tonight, bachelor Chris Soules will pick between two stylish women – Becca Tilley and Whitney Bischoff. Of course it has us (and Rue buyer Ilana S.) thinking about what each woman will wear to the final rose ceremony. Here, Ilana shares her tips for wowing that special someone on your next date night.

Try separates: This season, we’ve seen new trending night-out wears. Give the usual dress a break and swap for a monochrome jumpsuit or matching crop top and skirt.

Less is more: A simple number can still make a statement. Pair a classic silhouette and color with bold accessories (much like Whitney), to keep the look fresh. A bright lip or lash extensions are a flirty final touch.

Experiment with embellishment: Don’t shy away from mixing metallics or adding an extra layer of sparkle with your clutch and heels.

Put together your ideal date night outfit in our Snag a Rose: Glam Style Inspired by The Bachelor Boutique, which opened Monday, March 9, at 11AM ET.

Now that we’ve safely put Juan “It’s okay” Pablo behind us, we can once again focus on someone who really deserves to find love and can look great doing it.

Jackie Nasser on Andi Dorfman's Bachelorette Style

Andi Dorfman has definitely mastered the casual look, from her chic black and white ensemble while on a miming group date in France to her skinny white jeans, sandals, and tunic for the lie-detector test in Italy.  But it’s her more glamorous looks that really shine. Whether in a long, shimmery gown or a sexy cocktail dress, she gets it right every single time.

To pull off an Andi-inspired look, I spoke with Rue La La Dress Buyer (and fellow Bachelor fan) Ilana S. Here, she gives us her tips for the summer wedding season, chic cocktail parties, and even black-tie events:
