What to wear to... ...a first date

There’s no second chance to make a first impression, that’s why we always get so fussed about a first date. And it actually doesn’t have to be that hard.

Choose from your own wardrobe

We get that it might be tempting to buy some new clothes for this occasion, but it may be better to just choose something from your own wardrobe. It’s the same idea as with an interview for a new job: show him or her who you are. And what better way to do that, than to wear clothes that really suit you and make you feel comfortable.

Compliments

But of course you can still show them the best version of yourself! Think carefully and pick the outfit that people often compliment. This way, you are guaranteed to feel well and look well.

And pick a color that always looks good on you, for example the same blue as your eyes. Don’t underestimate the way this affects your appearance.

A little extra

Dress the way you feel, maybe with a little extra. If you’re in a feminine mood, you’ll undoubtedly feel good in a beautiful dress - or in flared high-waist jeans with a loose-fitting shirt; if you’re feeling a little more loose and festive you should go for a jumpsuit. Don’t want too much fuss and rather keep it casual? Then wear a shirt with nice details, like a print, some buttons in striking colors or a waist belt – combined with your favorite jeans.

Feel comfortable

Does it pinch anywhere, does it not match properly, is it too tight? Don’t wear it. The other person probably won’t even see it, but you will be fussing with that shirt during the entire date, or curse those shoes internally. While you should be using the time to look at and listen to the person you’re dating.
