First impressions can be lasting… even when it comes to first dates. Meeting a person for the first time can be awkward and uncomfortable. The one thing we don’t want to worry about is our style. Style is the unique look that represents your personality.
Hopefully, your date will be so drawn in by your uniqueness that the nervousness is over looked. Here are 7 First Date Outfit Ideas to consider.
1. The Nude Shoe Ploy
The nude shoe instantly gives the appearance of a longer and leaner leg. It gives the illusion that you are taller… especially a nude that matches your skin tone. Lengthening your legs can be just that simple. So, it wouldn’t hurt to own a pair or two.
2. Mixing Things Up
The one thing you don’t want to do is come off as high maintenance. We want to look our best yet not so over the top for a first date. A good way to prevent this is by mixing boyish & sassy items. It shows that conservative side of you and it allows the person to see that you don’t have to be flamboyant all the time. You can mix it up both casual and dressy yet still be chic.
3. Showstopping Heels
If you can walk it…step out in the way-high heels. This is the perfect way to elongate your legs. A shoe says a lot about you.. trust me I know. A gorgeous shoe will bring out any outfit. A great way to pair heels is with skinny jeans and a cute blazer.
4. One Shoulder Dress
A sophisticated elegant look is always the way to go. It shows that extra time was taken to put the ensemble together. This is the perfect time to play with color in order to really show off your confidence. I must say that this will give more suspense than the traditional little black dress (LBD) look.
5. Flirty Skirt w/Simple Tee
This is the ultimate unexpected look. It’s a boyfriend tee with a cute skirt that makes a statement. This gives you the opportunity to be fun yet there is a touch of suspense. It will leave them with the thought, “can’t put my finger on it…but there’s something I like about her”.
6. Sheath Dress
This is a great option for blind dates. It’s conservative enough for the office yet easy to transition into night life. You can simply pair the look with statement pieces and a fun pump. …and, you are instantly gorgeous!
7. Statement Pieces
All you need is that one piece that will never be forgotten. It’s something about glitter, bling, and all things accessories that can take any look and, I do mean any look, over the top. Take a beautiful necklace and pair it with a plain ‘ole denim dress and you now have something special.
