It’s all about the first impression on a first date, right? Well, thanks to social media, that window of opportunity has been replaced by blurry pics of you and your dog and old profile pics that you should’ve buried with the 10 year challenge. Here to save the day - we’ve gathered our stylists’ top tips to help you nail your first date look.
Effortless Style (with a little bit of effort)
No matter where you meet your new match, try to be as thoughtful as possible when you’re choosing your outfit. You want to exude a type of effortlessness without making too much effort. A pair of tailored chinos paired with a basic tee is a great baseline to build on. You can mix this look with a blazer for a more dressed up occasion, or layer with a bomber jacket when the weather calls for it.
Post Work Meet-Up
A work suit or smart casual office outfit can give off a really impressive vibe. But, if you’re spending the whole day in your date night outfit, make sure you chose items that wear well – a good quality shirt that’s less likely to crease and a freshly cleaned suit are a must.
What you wear on your feet can be an outfit game-changer. We suggest wearing shoes that complement your look but don’t overpower your style. Casual sneakers are perfect for a meet-up on the weekend, and for a fancier affair we (strongly) suggest leather dress shoes. They also need to be clean, no one wants to hang out with your crossfit-favourites.
Add some pieces into your look that reflect your own personality. Printed T-Shirts are the perfect way to communicate your creativity – by adding colours and designs that you connect with, you’ll be able to gauge if they’re into similar things, or not – it’s like a real life personality quiz.
Yours in Style & Love,
