Choosing the perfect outfit for a special date is exciting no matter how often you've been through the process. You always want to make a good impression, while having something in your collection for both formal restaraunts and casual trips. If you're not sure what to pick, or have a special someone you really want to impress, here are 5 tips you can't go wrong with.
First date? Can't go wrong with the Little Black Dress
Everyone has one, and if you don't—you really should. The “LBT” is a classic that women have been keeping in their closets since the 1920s. These dresses are timeless and never go out of style, but there are a few things you want to avoid. Although the little black dress never goes out of fashion, dresses that are all one texture can still look dowdy and old.
Add a little spice to your LBT by picking out a dress with some added texture to it.
Going to a formal restaurant? You'll need a great cocktail dress
Most of us don't break out a fancy cocktail dress for the usual dates, but for a formal occasion they are a must. You'll want to pay attention to seasons when picking out a good dress. Think prints for summer and solid colors for winter. Neckline can also make or break a great dress. Women with smaller busts should go with a sweetheart neckline, while bustier girls might look better in a decolatage style neckline.
Casual date? A fantastic pair of jeans and a trendy top
Not everyone likes wearing dresses, and for a casual date just for coffee anything more than a sundress may look over-the-top. You can still make a great impression however, by scaling up the quality of your top and pairing it with a playful top such as a peblum style in stripes or a button up with a fun scarf can be great options.
Don't be afraid to play around with style, jeans can look great with almost anything.
Cool weather? Don't forget to plan your cover-up
The most adorable outfit in the world isn't going to make the impression you want if it's covered by a drab and ugly coat. Faux fur is appropriate for cocktail dresses, while a blazer could be a good option for the other styles. Make sure what ever you use to ward off the chill looks just as good as the outfit you're using.
Dating is always exciting, and choosing an outfit that matches your personality could be key to making a great impression. We all want to find true love, and sometimes that takes getting to know a person a little better than just the first few dates. A great outfit might not help you fall in love, but it will help smooth the first few dates over so you can find out if that special someone is the one you've been looking for.
