WHAT TO WEAR ON A FIRST DATE
First dates can be nerve wrecking. Having to meet a new person all over again, putting yourself out there, the awkward hellos and goodbyes.
With all those things in mind, having to add what to wear to the list seems almost too much to deal with. That’s why I’m here to help you find that perfect first date look.
Having been on plenty of first dates myself, I think I’ve mastered the ‘what to wear’ part. Here are a few ideas I’ve come up with to help you pick that perfect outfit:
1. NEUTRAL COLORS
It’s always good to keep a neutral look for first dates. Why? Because you have no idea where you’re going on this date! Even if you have some idea, by keeping neutral colors in your outfit you can still dress it up or dress it down. The choice is always yours.
2. COMFORTABLE SHOES
PLEASE REMEMBER THAT IT’S COMFORT OVER EVERYTHING! I REPEAT PLEASE REMEMBER THAT IT’S COMFORT OVER EVERYTHING!
The reason why I’m saying this is as women we tend to wear the most uncomfortable shoes in order to look cute. I’m all for looking cute but not at the expense of your comfort and especially not on a first date.
Imagine wearing shoes and mid way through your date you’re in so much pain you can’t even walk! How tragic would that be for your date and your poor feet.
So remember to wear cute/sexy shoes but always choose comfort when deciding what pair.
3. STATEMENT PURSE
Want a little pop of color to make a statement? A purse is the perfect way to do just that. Add this to your neutral look and you’ll be a walking piece of art for that first date.
Blazer’s are your best friends when it comes to dressing up or down. A blazer can help complete a first day look and take your outfit to the next level. You can even add a nice bold color to your blazer to make this an elegant look.
Having a pop in earrings or even a simple headband to help complete your look is essential for a first date look. It will also make you feel like the queen you are on this first date and who knows he might even throw you a few compliments because of your amazing pick in accessories.
