How to Create the Perfect Date Outfit
First dates are one of two things; a complete disaster or the start of something beautiful. Going on a first date is nerve racking – especially if it’s with a guy you have liked for a while.
Every woman wants to look and feel her best on a first date – after all, “how can you expect someone love you, if you don’t love yourself?” Looking and feeling good will not only impress your date, but will ensure you have the confidence to step in with your best foot forward.
Looking good, however, is not the only important factor when it comes to choosing date outfits; choosing something that is suitable for the occasion and location is also key. Whilst surprise dates are fun, not knowing where you’re going could have you in your Sunday best at the zoo.
Try to find out the vibe of a bar or restaurant by checking their social media pages and dress appropriately for the venue. If you’re headed out for something different, check the weather and dress to suit the activity.
Your mother was right when she said legs or chest – don’t reveal too much on a first date. Avoid tight fitting “sexy” clothing because after a few drinks or something to eat it will make you feel uncomfortable. Also avoid sky scraper heels, whilst they might look great in the mirror at home if you’re limping along behind him on what should be a romantic stroll home you’ll be kicking yourself.
For the perfect Sunday morning brunch date team a maxi skirt with a white tee and a cropped jacket, the smart take on a casual look will never make you look like you tried too hard for an early morning meet.
For a meal out team coloured leggings with a loose fitting shirt and kitten heeled boots, this outfit will keep you warm in the cooler evenings and flatter your figure. The loose fitting blouse will keep you comfortable if you over indulge on the meal or the wine, whilst the look is on trend and bound to impress any date.
If you’re off into the great outdoors for a trip to the zoo, a picnic in the park or just a walk in the woods then dressing for the occasion is key. The exposed areas may be cooler than in the cities, whilst the unpaved areas require correct footwear – and it’s probably best to avoid dresses and skirts. Team leggings or jeans with flat boots, trainers or wellies and choose a cotton tee with a cute scarf to finish the look.
If you’re off to the cinema what you wear is up to you – just keep it on the casual side. If you choose to wear a dress team it with converse style trainers or ankle boots for an alternative and modern take on a feminine classic.
Those of you lucky enough to live by the beach or happen to have a short holiday romance, what to wear to the beach can be puzzling. Not wanting to reveal too much and not wanting to roast on the beach can leave you in a predicament – choose a cute skirt or shorts and team it with a bikini top and a jacket or cardigan to cover up if you need to.
However you dress and wherever your date, dress how you feel comfortable and don’t try to be someone you’re not – feel and dress confidently and remember not to drink too much, no matter how nervous you get.
