1. The Cute Jeans and Top Combo
If you want to look great while also playing it safe, you can’t go wrong with a well-fitting pair of jeans and a cute top such as a blouse.
The jeans and top combo works especially well if you’re meeting for a day date, as you won’t be expected to arrive dolled up. By nature, day days require more casual and comfy clothing, making it easier for you!
Pair your outfit with dainty jewelry, light makeup, and a pair of sunnies in case you luck out with the weather. If it’s brisk outside, a smart coat such as a chic trench will complete your casual yet cool day date outfit perfectly.
2. The Classic LBD
A classic LBD is truly hard to beat and is a versatile option to wear on any kind of date.
Whether you’re heading out for a posh dinner, pub drinks, or a daytime coffee, there’s an LBD to suit all date occasions.
For a dinner date, opt for a classy yet sexy form-fitting LBD that looks gorgeous dressed up with strappy sandals and a red lip. For this date, it’s all about striking a balance between sex appeal and cool. You want to look your best without coming across as too try-hard. So as tempting as it may be, try not to show off too much skin!
For pub drinks, a loose-fitting black sundress will suit the occasion.
And for a coffee date, a slouchy, black maxi dress will look stunning yet effortless at the same time.
3. The Cool Jumpsuit
Oh, we love a good jumpsuit. They’re versatile, comfy, and stylish all at once!
Dress down the jumpsuit for a daytime stroll with flat sandals, sunnies, and natural makeup for a more casual look. Or, for an evening date, a jumpsuit can be glammed up with strappy metallic heels, glitzy jewelry, and a clutch.
Not only does the jumpsuit look super-cool, but it’s also comfy to wear and is flattering on the figure.
Wherever he takes you in a jumpsuit, you won’t look underdressed or overdressed. So, if you’re starting off in the pub, then to a bar, then dinner, you’ll look fab every step of the date.
4. The Effortless Sundress
A relaxed sundress paired with a jacket is always a great outfit combination that you can wear to many date spots. Depending on your style, you can pop over a faux leather cropped bomber, a cozy cardigan, or a distressed denim jacket to add character to the dress (and to keep warm!).
Likewise, you can complete your outfit with a pair of shoes that suits the setting you’re heading to – such as flats, wedges, or a chunky heel. The ultimate goal of the outfit is to achieve the ‘I just threw this on’ vibe.
5. The Dainty Floral Dress
For a cute first date look, a floral dress is always a great shout. Plus, it’s another versatile choice that can be made casual for the daytime or dressed up for the evening.
There are plenty of choices of floral dresses too, so whatever your style you’ll be able to find an option to suit you whether you love a bold and bright pattern or a more delicate and intrinsic design.
Complete your charming first date look with curled hair and a pretty lip shade to compliment the dress.
