Whether you’re headed to a casual movie or a fancy dinner, you have to feel comfortable and look great. Deciding what to wear on a first date can be as exciting or nerve-racking. So, keep on reading for the 6 date outfit ideas for a great first impression.
- Add some edge with leather ensembles.
Though leather may sound too tough for a date night, you can still make it work. Instead of biker jackets and studded trousers, resort to crop tops, dresses, skirts and such that still look feminine yet edgy. Like fashion blogger Jennifer Selmanovic, you may team your classic turtleneck top with a patent leather skirt that will instantly revamp your classy piece. Or, simply wear it with a printed skirt that will add some life to your edgy leather piece.
- Add some polish to your outfits with chic vest or blazer.
If you don’t have formal or dressy ensembles in your closet, you may resort to a chic vest or blazer that you already have. Like fashion blogger Janni Deler, you may add some flair to your all-white outfit with a pastel blue vest, or a white blazer to your plain tee and nude shorts.
- Opt for body-hugging yet not tight clothes.
You might want to reserve your bodycon dresses on your girl’s night out, and instead go for figure flattering outfits on your date night. Body hugging doesn’t have to mean tight, as there are flattering styles of ensembles like a mermaid skirt teamed with a fitted top, or a red midi dress that look feminine yet not too sensual.
- Look effortlessly chic with jumpsuits.
If you’re a jean type of girl, wearing dresses and skirts on your date night might sound uncomfortable for you. To give you the comfort of pants yet the dressy vibe of skirts, look for chic jumpsuits that can do the tricks for you. Plain white jumpsuit will look sleek with heels, as well as with classic pumps and wedge sandals.
- Dress up your shirtdresses with accessories.
Shirtdresses are basic ensembles that you might already have in your closet. If you think a white shirtdress look too corporate for a date night, wear it with a trendy belt and sexy heels. Like fashion blogger Janni Deler, an architectural belt and a pair of winged sandals are enough to dress up your classic piece. Or like fashion blogger Aimee Song, play with your buttons to create some slits and flattering neckline, making it look more feminine and chic.
