Whether it’s dinner at a five star restaurant or courtside seats to a basketball game, going on a date involves a range of decisions, not the least of which is deciding what to wear. An outfit informs your date’s impression of you and sets the tone for the date. Especially when you’re hoping to impress, deciding what to wear can be an exciting, but also intimidating, process. To minimize your stress and increase your confidence, we describe three surefire outfits that you and your date will love.
This is a classic look that never fails to impress. Skinny jeans draw attention to your shape and accent your shoes more than a boot cut or flare jean. You can try classic denim for a more casual look or black jeans for a dressier night out. Pairing this with a flowy top creates the right balance of fitted and loose. Swap the ankle boots for heels or a strappy sandal in the warmer weather and you have a classic look that works year-round. Try an animal print or studded shoe for an added pop.
This comfortable, casual look is both practical and stylish, making it ideal for fall or winter weather. This combination is a lifesaver if your body has changed and you want something that adjusts to your current shape and size. Try high-waisted or compression leggings for a smooth look that leaves you feeling fabulous. You can add a flirty flare by choosing an off the shoulder sweater or one with slits in the arms. Try flat boots for a casual, daytime date or heeled boots for a night out, and you’ll be sure to keep your date’s attention.
This stylish and creative look works for a variety of date scenarios. Whether it’s a Converse High Top or Adidas Gazelle, there is no shortage of sporty-chic sneakers that look great with a dress. As for dresses, try a cotton swing dress for a casual occasion or a lacy slip dress for something more formal. When paired with a sneaker, both broadcast cool and confidence. For an added pop, consider wearing your hair pulled back and showing off a unique pair of earrings or a necklace.
Just like the best dates are fun and comfortable, so too is the outfit you choose to wear. Deciding on an outfit that boosts your confidence and speaks to your personality should never be more difficult than the date itself. This list ensures that choosing an outfit adds joy to the dating process and not stress. Check this list, check your closet, and have fun!
