what to wear on a date
Getting ready for a date can already be stressful, and worrying about what you are going to wear just adds unnecessary pressure when you want to look flawless and confident. No matter is it’s a Tinder date, a blind date or someone that you already know, the search for the perfect outfit to bring out the best of yourself can be extremely daunting.
There are a few tips to boost your confidence before the first meeting, and one of them is to plan ahead so you don’t end up with nothing to wear two hours before going out. Think about mixing contemporary fashion trends with your own unique style to appear almost exactly as you are in real life. Of course, you can always hit the high street to find new items that will make you feel self-assured but you might already have a few outfits that people keep complimenting you on. A combination of old and new items is what makes a perfect look for a date where you will feel comfortable and confident while staying natural.
Now not all dates are the same and you need to take into account what type of activities you’ll be doing. Put together a look that will impress while being practical if you’re going for a fancy dinner, and choose a more casual and comfy outfit if it’s a day date where you’ll be asked to go for an impromptu stroll. Make sure your hair and makeup looks pretty and natural and your outfit will follow through. Here are a few ideas be it for a first date or if it’s already getting a bit more serious.
If you’re date is into outdoors activities, the best is to wear comfortable staples for an effortless look. Opt for slim fit trousers with a playful tee and add an oversize leather jacket to keep you warm if you’re spending the whole afternoon outside. Go for white sneakers and a colorful beanie to make you look like the cool girl who loves to skate when you’ve never been on a board before.
JUST A DRINK (OR MORE)
When it comes to evening date outfits, find the balance between sex appeal and practicality. A perfectly fitted blazer layered over a white shirt is a great combo to make you look effortlessly elegant. Match with wide-leg trousers that will elongate your silhouette when paired with heeled boots, and add refined gold jewelry for a touch of sparkle.
When your date treat you to a lovely dinner in a romantic place, it’s time to go all out with your outfit. A classic little black dress always does the trick but make sure it is sexy while not revealing too much skin. Pair with elegant heels and statement earrings but don’t overdo it, the dress will already do all the talking.
IN THE CITY
If you’re spending the day with your date going from a casual lunch to a stroll in the city, your outfit needs to be versatile and comfortable. Choose a feminine wrap dress that will take you from day to night if the date rolls over, and go for flat knee-high boots to wander the streets without pain. Make sure you don’t get cold when the sun goes down by layering a thick wool coat and take a large tote bag with you to carry all your essentials and be prepared for any situation.
If you’re staying in and he’s taken the lead to show you his talent as a chef, no need to overthink your outfit too much. Opt for a satin slip skirt and tone it down with a ribbed cardigan for a chic yet casual look. Add a pair of ballerinas for that feminine touch and a light trench coat to make an entrance.
