What To Wear

Make A Lasting Impression With These First Date Outfit Ideas


As if the first date wasn’t nerve-racking enough, planning the perfect outfit can be a stressful task, so when it comes to deciding what to wear, take a page out of Shay Mitchell’s style book. We are loving the edgy leather skirt paired with a white crop top and bold statement necklace. She continues the bold style with a gorgeous fuchsia coloured lipstick and classic black heels. It’s the perfect date night outfit.

If you feel like playing it safe, another option is going for your staple “Little Black Dress.” The versatility of the dress allows you to dress it up or dress it down depending on the location of the date. If you are going to a fancy restaurant, pair the dress with a metallic or sparkling skinny belt, matching clutch and matching heels. If it’s more casual, opt for a coral or red blazer for a pop of colour and ballet flats to complete the look.

Also, make sure you are comfortable in what you wear. There is nothing wrong with playing up a pair of dark black skinny jeans and a white tee. It’s easy to make that look more “date appropriate” by rocking a red lip, a fitted leather jacket or tailored blazer and adding killer stilettos in a hot colour. Tie the look together with chunky accessories and an edgy handbag.

Statement pieces are great conversation starters. For a more feminine and romantic look, pair a flowy, chiffon maxi skirt in coral with a soft white blouse or anything with lace. Make sure to accentuate your waistline by adding a thin belt and complete the look with strappy sandals.

You can never go wrong with dresses. They are the perfect go-to pieces that are sure to add class, femininity and romance. For an even more romantic feel, opt for a pretty lace dress in black or cream and dress it down with a structured black blazer. Accessorize the look with a simple clutch and nude pumps.
