Going on a date and want to dress to impress? There’s no better feeling than that sense of excitement and butterflies in your stomach that fuels you to look on fleek! The key to perfecting a date outfit is to strike a balance between looking too casual and going overboard. Comfort is vital, because with comfort comes confidence.
Your look should also complement the environment. Whether you’re going for a daytime park stroll or some evening bubbly, there’s an outfit for every occasion!
Coffee or tea, anyone?
Cafes are a hit hub for meeting friends and potential lovers. They boast a humble and relaxed setting for quality time, which calls for a minimal yet cool casual look. Chic high-waist wide-leg jeans fit the scene and pair perfectly with a cute puff-sleeve crop top. Bring along an easy-going pullover that you can wear with the front slightly tucked in, just in case the AC is too cold! Complete the look with some fresh kicks for a versatile, stylish and comfortable look.
A stroll in the park
A great way to calm the butterflies is a stroll in the park. This is my personal favorite occasion for styling, as I can combine optimal comfort with fun and flirty.
Set the mood by going floral, like a flowy floral-print dress with white canvases. If you’re not a dress person or fear the worst could happen when wearing a dress on a windy day, go for a relaxed long-sleeve button-up worn unbuttoned over a camisole tucked into fitted pants. A date in the park is a good chance to get creative with fun prints and patterns, be it floral or picnic plaid! Finish off the look with flat shoes. The chances of walking on grass are high, and you wouldn’t want the heels of your shoes to sink into the grass.
Post-work happy hour
Move aside work, happy hour is calling my name! Here, dressy meets relaxed. After a long day at work, you want to look chic, and not like you’re about to make a business transaction.
Opt for a midi pencil skirt with a simple, slightly loose blouse tucked in. In case it’s cold, an oversized blazer provides warmth, comfort and chic appeal. You can also go for a shirtdress so you don’t have to worry about matching your top with your bottom. A versatile shirtdress suits both work and happy hour. Slide into sandal heels or pointy-toe pumps for the ultimate off-duty boss lady vibes.
A night out on the town
The most frisky occasion of all, a date night out on the town calls for a killer outfit that also feels comfortable, so you can let loose and have fun! Black faux leather pants give the night some edge and match well with either a silky tank top, sequined top or dressy blouse. Wrap up the look with attention-grabbing heeled sandals or booties!
