What to Wear to a Date

Let's talk about dating. What I struggle most with is what to wear to a date. Here are a few date options and clothes that go well with each date idea. 

Option 1: With summer around the corner there are plenty of festivals and outdoorsy things that you can do on a date.


Summer Festival


The idea here is to look very casual but girly. Wearing a band's T-shirt is always a good idea in my opinion. What I like about the skirt+cute shirt combo is that if you add white converse it does not look like you're trying to hard. You're just a cool girl with a super cool style. For these outfits I'd leave my hair down and most likely curled or in beachy waves with a braided headband for an added hipster-laid back look.

 
Option 2: Let's get coffee/ watch a movie or AKA daytime date.

Casual Date

Once again, we are going for casual chic. Sensing a theme here? It's all about looking like you just threw these 'random' clothes on and looking fabulous nonetheless. An easy outfit to go if you're in a rush is jeans and a white top plus a colorful statement scarf (or necklace). You could also wear a maxi, but I'd pair it with some nice leather sandals and I'd layer on some jewelry.


Option 3: Date Night
Dinner Date


Date nights are fun. I chose a cobalt blue dress and some wedges. I might opt for heels if I have a pair that I have worn before and know that a) i can walk in them b) they are comfortable.  If the place is really fancy I'd go with a little black dress. If the place you're going to isn't too fancy I would wear black jeans or dark wash denim and a flirty top. 




The looks I've put together are casual chic, because in real life I doubt the guy will show up wearing anything more dressy than jeans+shirt combo. (If he does- MARRY HIM!) Since the guy will be pretty casual, I do not want to over do it and wear heels+dress. 



BFF tips:
-wear something that you're comfortable with. This is a mistake I made. I bought a cute top especially for the occasion and spend most of the night thinking whether the color of it was making me look orangey/ alien like. (this kind of also tells you a little bit about how interesting our conversation was)

-if you are a 'flats person', do NOT wear heels. You will not look cute stumbling around with pain shooting up your spine. You will be miserable too.  Stick to flats or wedges if added height is a must


 Do you have any first date advice? Any embarrassing stories?

  14. My advice for a first date is to wear your favourite clothes!
    This is how you will be comfortable and confident.
    Never wear something for the first time on date!
    Thank you so much for stopping by my blog!
