What to wear on every kind of date

Whether you’re going on a first date, a third or you’re just having a special night out with your partner, you’re going to want to dress fabulously and make an impression. There are so many different types of date, it can be hard knowing what to wear, however! Here are a few ideas to help get you on your way to date fashion perfection.

The dinner date

You remember that little black dress in your wardrobe? Well, now is the time to get that baby out and take it for a spin. The dinner date is the perfect excuse to look your absolute best, and don’t be afraid to go all outs. You don’t need to own hundreds of different dresses, either, you just need to grab your favorite basic dress, and you’re off. The best part about the color black is that it literally goes with anything, you can add any accessories you want, and you can even change things up with the color of your heels. If you know it’s going to be more of a casual dinner, then you can wear the same dress, but add a cute cardigan and use more understated accessories.

The picnic

You don’t need to panic, the whole raison d’etre of a picnic is to eat amongst the great outdoors, but you get to go it looking fabulous. If the weather is good enough that you get to eat outside, then there’s no reason you can’t break out a pretty day dress. There is a huge variety these days, and you could even opt for a stylish playsuit if you wanted. You won’t need to worry about loosening your jeans if you eat a bit too much too! Avoid heels and opt for the simpler flats; you don’t want to look silly if you’re walking on grass, or ruin your shoes for that matter!

The surprise

Sometimes they like to be awkward, and romantic, and attempt to surprise you. This can make it extremely tricky to know what to wear, but don’t worry, we have you covered. If it’s going to be particularly messy, then you would hope they would give you a warning. However, it’s always best to play it safe and wear something comfortable. Get a nice pair of jeans and pair them with a pretty top. You should bring a jacket and wear flats, that way you have all your bases covered. You never know, you might be able to ask if heels are okay if you’re desperate to wear them, but bring a spare pair of flats anyway.

The cozy night in

Sometimes it’s nice to keep it simple and stay in; sometimes these evenings are the most romantic! However, while this might seem like an excellent opportunity to get super comfy, you also want to take the opportunity to give them a surprise. You never know where things are going to go, and if you think there’s a chance for a little intimacy then why not wear some super-cute lingerie beneath that comfortable outfit you have on. As for the outerwear, you’re pretty much free to wear what you want, just make sure it’s not the painted sweats you wore to decorate last week.

One of the biggest pieces of advice you could follow is to not worry so much about picking the perfect outfit and choosing something that screams ‘you,’ that way it gets easier every time.
