Fab First Date Outfit Options
So, you’ve got yourself a date, eh? That’s great news! Taking the time to think about all the fun you’re going to have on your first rendezvous is definitely the right step to savour the new experience and come up with the right questions that will help you and your date deepen the acquaintance. And while you’re at it, bear in mind that there’s no reason to feel stressed and nervous about your first meet-up. Remember, a person who gives off a relaxed and natural attitude is always more attractive than someone who’s anxious and insecure. You can use this cue when choosing your first-date outfit: the right getup is a guarantee that your date and yourself will be seeing each other again.
If you and your date are going for a coffee or a quick snack, you don’t need to put on the most expensive getup in your wardrobe, or a gala dress. For a casual date, keep your styling in the same lane. Of course, this doesn’t mean that you should show up in the clothes you wear at home, such as sweatpants or baggy shirt. Pick an outfit you would wear when going out for a shopping spree or a coffee with your friends. Your casual date clothes should represent your personality while allowing you to feel comfortable and stylish at the same time.
Dose of Modesty
Regardless of whether you’re going to a coffee shop or fancy restaurant, be careful not to show too much skin right off. While being confident about your body is a very attractive quality, too much nude skin on the first date can actually put your date off. Looking gorgeous and sexy is in no way linked to exposing too much of your body to a stranger’s gaze. If you’re set on wearing a mini skirt, keep your upper body duly covered. On the other hand, if you’re going to wear pants, think about revealing a bit of your arms, or at least avoid a turtle neck.
Don’t Change Your Style
According to the latest dating tips, you should never try to be someone you’re not and wear clothing you don’t even like in order to impress your date. The first rule of dating is to present yourself as honestly as possible. Of course, no dating expert will tell you to reveal all about your life in the first couple of hours of a potential relationship, but it is essential to stay true to yourself. This doesn’t apply to your behaviour and attitude only: it also includes your choice of outfit. Is there any point in dressing for the date the way you never normally do? Do you even know what kind of fashion style will appeal most to your date? Contrary to popular fashion misconceptions, people generally don’t care about the style itself – they care about the way you rock and own it. If you’re uncomfortable and aching when wearing heels you’ve never worn before, your date will probably notice your discomfort, which will lessen the meeting’s success.
Play It Safe, Play It Cool
The best way to go about the outfit when you’re meeting your date for a casual coffee is to wear something that fits your everyday style, with perhaps a few twists and interesting details – nothing flashy, tough. Overdressing is no less of a fashion mistake even if your first date is going to be a dinner or lunch at a fancy restaurant. To play it safe in this case, look no further than your little black dress. Classy, timeless, and trendy, the little black dress is a girl’s perfect pick for a classy dinner date.
The way you dress for a date does make a difference, but don’t forget that it’s your personality and flow of conversation that should shine the most. No matter how well-dressed you are, if your outfit is more interesting than you are, there’s a good chance that the date won’t go as brilliantly as you planned.
