Okay ladies, anyone who’s been on a first date will know just how stressful they can be. We want to look and feel good, but don’t want to look overdressed. We want to stand out from every other woman in the room, but don’t want to look like we tried too hard. Getting date night fashion right can be like navigating a minefield.
The most important thing to remember is that if you’re going to have a nice time, you need to be comfortable and confident. While it’s good to step outside your comfort zone when it comes to style, you shouldn’t be so far outside it that you’re self-conscious. It might seem almost impossible to get date night fashion spot on, but with this guide to the dos and don’ts, it doesn’t have to be.
Do choose an outfit that shows off your body shape
If you’ve got it, flaunt it. When it comes to date night fashion, you want to give him an idea of what’s going on underneath your outfit. Select a dress or top that fits your body shape nicely, giving him a sneak peek at your figure. Obviously, you don’t want to wear a skin tight dress, as you would most probably feel a little uncomfortable. However, a dress that hugs your body in all the right places is ideal for a first date.
Don’t select an outfit that shows too much skin
Whatever you do, don’t make the mistake of wearing an outfit that shows off too much skin. You want to give your date an idea of what he’s missing, but you want to be elegant about it. Turning up to a first date in a low cut or super short dress that leaves very little down to the imagination, is a recipe for disaster. If you take your time shopping around, you should be able to find some modest dresses that are perfect for a first date.
Do be brave with colour
If you want to stand out, wearing a dress that’s a bright, bold colour is perfect. If you’re going to use colour to make you stand out, make sure that it’s not black. A dress design in red or pink is perfect, as long as it’s a sleek, tailored cut, of course. Dressing in black from head to toe is more for a funeral than a date, and it’s important to remember that. If black is your go-to colour, opt for a dress design that’s black and white, and mix things up a little.
Don’t forget to accessorise
No matter what outfit you’ve opted to wear, accessories are your secret weapon. To jazz your look up, personalise it, and make it that little bit more fun, accessories are a must. From your shoes to your jewellery, make sure to take your time and not rush, when selecting your date night accessories.
So there you have it, all the dos and don’ts of date night fashion. It can be hard dressing for a date, especially when you’re desperate to make a good first impression. Take note of the tips above, and you can make dressing for date night easier and less stressful.
