What To Wear On A First Date
Before you think you've got nothing to wear, think again.

First dates can be stressful enough without the added pressure of finding the perfect outfit. To help you get there and to save you from falling into a crying heap in front of your wardrobe (may or may not be speaking from experience), let’s simplify.

First and foremost, consider the venue. Are you meeting at a bar, for coffee, going to a gig or are you one of those outdoorsy types heading rock-climbing? For all but one of those occasions (and can you guess which one?), here’s a rule to remember: Denim is your friend.

A snug-fit pair of jeans will see you through almost any date, especially during these cool-weather months. If you’re meeting during the day and want to make it casual, keep the jeans blue and choose a top that exemplifies your personal style. Bright and bubbly? Add a colourful knit or statement-print piece. More of a classic dresser? A crisp white shirt will do the trick. Or try a simple T-shirt and leather moto jacket combo with layered necklaces for an edgier off-duty-model look.

For a night time date, try wearing your denim up top. A chambray button-up with a pair of black leather pants screams cool and confident, or wear it with a white lace pencil skirt for an on-trend but more demure look.

If it’s an all-out date date, you know – fancy restaurant, cocktails, the lot – ditch the denim and scale things up a notch. Slip into a dress you love and feel comfortable in. You know you always look your best when you feel your best, and the last thing you want is to be sitting at a table pulling, adjusting and yanking on your ill-fitting frock.

Keep on you a compact mirror for a quick check of the dreaded pesto-in-the-teeth. And remember to have fun. The outfit will always play second fiddle to the conversation!
