First date can be a stressful experience. Finding the perfect outfit, being on time and never running out of conversation topics are challenging hurdles. Don’t worry. Follow this advice on your first date essentials and you’ll at least know what to wear.
1. Clothes: Most Important to Choose for your First Date
Usually a first date takes place somewhere elegant and chic; a wine bar, expensive restaurant or lounge. Make sure your outfit matches the location with some classy choices. The usual option is an asymmetrical dress, little and black or light and flowy, dresses are timeless first date attire. If you’re a bold and adventurous kind of girl, you may opt for a long sleeve romper instead of a dress. Rompers are a little flirtier and balance casual and classic. For a laid back first date, you’ll be most comfortable in a blouse and jeans. But, don’t be afraid to break out some pumps to elevate your outfit.
2. Shoes: Yet Another Essential
Once you’ve chosen your dress or romper, it’s time to pick some shoes to match. Is your dress girly and whimsical? Choose some strappy, open toed sandals. Is your romper bad and bold? Perhaps some booties would complement it the best. Sometimes, you may want to build an outfit off your favorite pair of shoes. If you’re desperate to wear your favorite pair, but have nothing to match, stores like Style Lust Shop have the variety and selection to help you find the perfect outfit for any pair of shoes.
3. Jewelry to Accentuate the Appearance
No outfit is complete without some embellishment. This colorful statement necklace is the perfect accent for a look, that will make your date’s head turn. Jewelry can complement or counterpoint your ensemble. If you’re wearing something simple, a clunky piece becomes the centerpiece and draws attention. While, a delicate jewelry set accentuates your entire outfit. Be wary of pairing too many statement pieces together. If every part of your outfit is bold, you’ll end up with a confusing and contradictory look.

4. Accessories Dictating the Fashion Statement
Dress? Check. Shoes? Check. Jewelry? Check. Now it’s time for the best part: Accessories. Sometimes, it’s hard to a find a purse or clutch that meshes seamlessly with every other part of your outfit. For a quick fix, have a collection of neutral purses and bags. Black, navy, gray, brown, even rhinestones tend to go with everything. A simple black clutch can be your first choice for almost any outfit, unless, your look is missing a statement piece. If you opt for a simple first date ensemble, you may want to consider making your purse exciting. Pairing a simple dress and heels with a colorful, daring bag gives you an extra bit of flair. Two tones or geometric designs are good choices.
5. Makeup, Last but not the Least
Whether you prefer to go out with a fresh face or can’t leave the house without dark, black eyeliner, first date makeup can really showcase your personality. Are you a punk rock gal with dark shadow and bold eyebrows or a classic beauty with simple eyeliner and sexy, red lips? Whichever look you choose, make sure you test any new products a few days before your date to avoid allergic reactions or sensitivity.
Every part of your ensemble is important. But, to really pull everything together you need one last thing, confidence. No outfit, and indeed, no woman is complete without that most alluring quality. Don’t let just your outfit define your personality. Give your date something to admire, when you believe in yourself. Take risks and go the extra mile with your ensemble on your date and in life.
