What to wear on a first date

We have all been there , panicking hours before the date even sometimes day ahead  stressing about the perfect outfit to wear.

“I don’t want to look too dressed up” and “I don’t want to look too casual ” are just some of the dilemmas that go through are minds during the deciding stages.

You don’t want to look like you made too much effort but at the same time you want your date to think “damn he/she looks good”.

In my opinion the way one dresses says a lot about there personality/character and sense of style and it’s one of the first things your date will notice. so some sort of effort and planning needs to go into your oufit.

When choosing an oufit ensure you don’t forget your own personal style, you want your date to know and like you for you. By that I mean not wearing sky high heels if it’s  not your thing don’t break your ankles pretending to be someone your not.

I have been with my other half for a long time and regardless of the location we choose to go to wether it’s dressy or casual, I still make sure I remain myself and to be quite frank that’s a person that doesn’t really like to wear heels as I am quite tall already and I just can’t move freely in them.

Of course I still wear heels occasionally  but it’s not my most comfortable choice of outfit so I do avoid it when possible and I’ve never made a secret of it.


The location were your date is taking place, plays a huge role when choosing an oufit, if your date is outdoors it’s fair to say heels are not the best option and the same goes for a nice restaurant, trainers may not be an ideal choice.
Always do necessary research on the location you will be going to prior to the date so you know what outfit to go for. You don’t want to arrive somewhere and feel overdressed/underdressed.


Jeans are a win win as you can never go wrong with a nice pair. They can be teamed up with almost everything and can turn an outfit from casual to dressy and vice versa. They can be worn on almost every date or any weather conditions.


You do not need to break the bank for a date and splash out on all the latest designer brands in the hope of impressing your date because chances are they won’t be.

The way I see it is “it’s not about what you wear it’s about how you wear it”. You can wear the most pricey item on the shelves and I can pretty much guarantee you won’t look as good as in an oufit that’s in your budget and your that’s your original style.

To conclude the main thing that matters when choosing what to wear on a date is that your comfortable and feel good in what you are wearing. Confidence is key and it will make almost anything look good on you, so don’t overthink it too much just go for it.

Make sure your personality is reflected through your outfit as it says so much about a person and paints a picture even though you may not think so. Dont underestimate the power of first impressions.

One last tip is to never loose yourself trying to impress others.it will back fire in the long run.

Thanks so much for reading, I would love to know what oufit you go for depending on the date and also wether you think what one wears is a big deal. 🙂
