3 Chic & Cutesy Outfits That You Can Wear On Your First Date
I’ve heard this time and again at the Hauterfly HQ: A successful first date is a difficult feat. Sure, it is, and nobody said it was easy (courtesy: Coldplay). Especially if you’re one among those who has entered the ‘Let’s Mingle’ arena after eons. Let’s be honest, even the most confident women do feel the jitters when meeting someone (prospective significant other or just a potential hook-up) for the first time. It’s a universal woman problem, girlies, so be rest assured you’re not the only one out there. And let me tell you, the one tried and tested formula of tackling this problem is by putting your best fashion foot forward on that first date. Trust me, dressing up for your first date (or any date no matter what that count be) is important. Firstly, I think dressing up (for yourself) only makes you feel stunning and confident. And secondly, there’s no doubt that it leaves a great impression on the guy.
Got introduced to your bestie’s cute guy friend or met a new fella on a dating app and can’t wait to see him for the first time? Well, worry not my friend! Here I am, to deck you up for the occasion. Read on as I decode for you three super chic outfits that you can wear to your first meeting with that hot mister. Happy dating!
1. AN OFF-THE-SHOULDER DRESS
Let’s be honest, an off-the-shoulder dress is perfect this season. While it isn’t too revealing, it sure shows off that collarbone just to keep the look chic yet minimalistic. Wear a ruffled off-the-shoulder dress to your first date to look on point. Work a block-heeled pair of sandals to this look and add that chic sling bag in black to carry your essentials for the night. Since this is quite a simple dress, go bold on the jewellery with a pair of tasseled earrings and a wrap gold bracelet. Don’t forget that smile girl, and watch him be intrigued by you.
2. AN ACCORDION PLEATED SKIRT
An accordion pleated skirt is not just on-trend but also highly flattering. Also, it’s one of those cutesy outfits that will score you all the brownie points in the style department. Choose a skirt in red, because hello there, red is the colour of love they say! You can add a lace bralet to this look, and just so it doesn’t seem too flirty an ensemble, layer it with a chic bomber jacket. Complete the look with some gold jewellery and a monochrome pair of pumps, and don’t forget to lug that messenger bag.
2. A LONG TEE WITH TREGGINGS
Not in a mood to flaunt those legs? Worry not! Wear a pair of denim treggings (leggings that are shaped like trousers) with a boxy long tee in a neutral colour (I’ve kept it grey here). Add that pop of hue with a pair of pumps in a bold colour (I’ve chosen a russet pair, but you could also opt for fuchsia or orange if you please). Hold a fun envelope clutch in a tribal print maybe, and keep the accessories simple yet chic.
