A first date with that boy you’ve had your eye is sure to set your heart a flutter. What will you do? How will things go? Hopefully you won’t embarrass yourself. What will you wear? Well, you may still stress about how things go, but at least you can know one thing – you will look good.
The first thing to avoid is clothing that could possibly create an embarrassing moment. To avoid this it’s important to steer clear of super short skirts or extremely low cut shirts. Sticking to comfortable, flattering, clothing will help to keep your anxiety down a little more as well, because you won’t need to be adjusting your clothes constantly.
Keep in mind that if you were asked on a date it is because the person doing the asking already is interested in you, so don’t feel as though you have to flaunt your body in extreme proportions. To really get to know a person you don’t want them to be staring at your body the whole night, so try not to distract them too much from the goal of getting to know each other.
Consider the weather when getting ready, especially if you don’t know what you are doing during your date. This will definitely be a huge help in ensuring that you are more comfortable. Layering during the winter is great, because then you can keep layers on if necessary and shed layers if you need to get cooler.
One outfit to consider during the winter is some nice pants, maybe some skinnies (not jeans), boots, a nice blouse and maybe a jacket. This is a great option because the pants will look classy and can appear casual and dressy at the same time. You can pick a blouse that can flow freely and be seen as casual or dressy as well especially with a nice blazer that can easily be taken off if it is too warm where you are. Wearing a winter coat and scarf will be an added positive that you can remove during indoor activites.
If you are doing something during the summer you might consider a more casual skirt with some nice wedges and a nice blouse. There are so many fun, comfortable and simple summer skirts and dresses that can easily be construed as more semi-formal as well as casual. A cute summer dress with a cardigan or some nice wedges with a flowing Downeast skirt are great options.
During the spring and fall you can easily pick between these two styles and adjust it to fit your personality as well. These options are great for helping you to look great, feel comfortable, and avoid any awkward situation that may arise. Just remember to check the weather and plan accordingly, so that you can feel and look great during your first date with the possible Mr. Right.
