So, you’ve managed to get yourself a date. You’re excited but then you begin to stress about what to wear. You don’t want to look like you’re trying too hard but you still want to look good. We’ve got the low down on what to wear for a first date.

Bardot top

You just can’t go wrong with a bardot top. They scream elegance and feminity without trying too hard. They are available in different styles and it’s difficult to find one that won’t suit your body shape. They’re easy to pair with jeans or a skirt and a statement necklace. Prettylittlething and Boohoo sell beautiful and affordable bardot tops.

Skinny jeans

Who doesn’t own a pair of skinny jeans? Keep them a neutral colour such as black or navy to prevent the risk of stains. Sticking with neutral colours also makes it easier to find a top to wear with them. You can easily dress skinny jeans up with a top of any colour and style. Try pairing them with a bright or striped bardot top.


For the more daring of you, a bodycon dress may be the ultimate dress of choice for a first date. However, if you’re looking to be more comfortable, especially if you’re going out to eat, try a skater dress. These are simple but elegant and comfortable and tend to compliment all body shapes.


Jumpsuits are great as you don’t have to worry about matching items of clothes together. It’s just one piece of clothing and you only have to think about accessories and shoes. They are comfortable and flattering and come in all kind of styles. The only downside of wearing a jumpsuit is that they are quite difficult to take off when you pop to the ladies!


An outfit often seems incomplete without a pair of heels. But you don’t want your feet to be hurting towards the end of your date. Instead, find yourself a pair of block heeled sandals or cute ankle boots. These shoes will automatically jazz up your outfit while keeping your feet comfortable. New look offers an amazing range of footwear for any occasion.

Whatever you decide to wear, make sure you are 100% comfortable. Find out what you’ll be doing. First dates can be nervous enough as it is without the added element of being uncomfortable in your outfit. There’s nothing worse than wearing a pair of heels only to find out you’ll be doing a lot of walking.
