There is probably nothing more exciting and nerve-wrecking than a first date with a guy that you really like. In these dire moments, the question on every woman’s lips is “What in the world am I going to wear?” Deciding on the perfect outfit for a first romantic encounter is extremely difficult because there are so many things you need to worry about: choosing something sexy without making it look like you tried too hard, showing some skin without coming across as vulgar and achieving sophistication without feeling uncomfortable.
Most guys don’t actually care that much about what you’re wearing as long as you look cute and confident, and ultimately, self-confidence is all that matters. As far as make-up goes, it’s better to stick with something subtle and natural. So here are a few outfit ideas for a date to remember:
1. Tall Boots over Skinny Jeans
Perfect for a casual night in the town
This is the type of laid-back outfit that guys love on a woman. It tells that she’s comfortable in her own skin and ready to party. During colder seasons you can go with classic brown or black leather boots, and for the summer you can opt for cut-out fabric boots. The classic choice for the top would be a simple white blouse, accessorize with a statement necklace or golden chains, and some red lipstick.
2. Simple, short sundress
Perfect for summer activities
Summer is the perfect season to show some skin without looking awkward. The simple, short sundress is casual and somehow inviting. The rule of thumb here would be to choose a dress shape that flatters your figure. Combine this with a pair of flats or sandals and you’re ready to go.
3. Fitted Skirt & Heels
Perfect for a formal occasion (theater, opera, elegant restaurant etc.)
If you want to go with something slightly more elegant we recommend a fitted pencil or skater skirt, a white blouse and stiletto heels. This type of outfit exudes sophistication and class. As far as accessories go, we recommend silver or pearl jewelry, as they are discreet and classy.
4. Backless Blouses with Skirts or Jeans
Perfect for dancing or long walks in the park
There is a rule that according to which you should never expose more than 40% of your skin on a first date. Backless blouses are arguably one of the best inventions ever, or at least that’s what men think. A bare back isn’t considered vulgar (as opposed to exposed breasts and extremely short skirts), but it is definitely feminine. Obviously, you can’t wear a normal bra with this type of blouse.
5. The Little Black Dress
Perfect for any occasion
Oh yes, the little black dress is an absolute classic. It tells guys that you’re the type of girl that they need to impress in order to receive a second date. Combine it with a pair of leather sandals and discreet accessories, or a pair of eye-catching heels and you’re all set.
In the end it’s about wearing something that makes you feel good about yourself. Men notice individual pieces of clothing less, and they usually judge the entire ensemble. As long as you feel confident in it, he will surely like it. And if he doesn’t, well, maybe he wasn’t worth your time to begin with.
