Dressing for the occasion is important in fashion. Trunk shows take place every summer for weddings and fashion events are always in season. What makes date wear any different? When it comes to meeting that special someone, style surely comes in handy.
First dates are nerve wracking. Jitters bubble uncontrollably and thoughts of 'do we kiss or not?' pervade the mind. But, what you wear should give you peace, especially at the first time meeting each other. Kimonos are great pieces. They come in long printed styles that make a statement on their own. A monochromatic look works best under these elegant and flowing overlays. Try black on black jeans and a camisole. Make sure that the jeans are not baggy or sagging. The same rule applies for skirts. Showing a silhouette compliments draping kimonos. Finalize this look with booties. Nothing keeps a woman more at ease than feeling secure in her outfit.
Date Two is a little less intense. First date jitters are somewhat gone and there is some familiarity between the two of you. Whew! This sense of ease takes the pressure off of trying to impress him with yet another phenomenal outfit. Do not let yourself go; just tone down the ensemble. This means showing no silhouettes, cleavage or thighs. Focus on covering up as much as possible. Keep him on his toes. He should not be able to figure you out so quickly.
With this said, pair a fitted turtleneck with a structured midi skirt. The librarian look leaves much to the imagination and it sparks intrigue. Choose shoes that elongate the legs like stilettos or pointy ballet slippers. Now, enjoy a perfect night out at a dim lit restaurant by the beach.
After a few weeks have passed, bring back the wow factor with casual wear for Date Three. Being less formal is an icebreaker and shows versatility, which can be very attractive. Let your prospect know you have the ability to adapt to different situations. Blue jeans work in any setting. They are classic, as well as white V-neck tee shirts. Combine the two with nude or brown colored oxford shoes and a long strapped mini purse. It is important to accessorize this outfit with a small bag to lighten the load. Carrying literal or metaphorical baggage is never good in dating.
Finally, have fun. Dating involves a lot of curiosity, intuition and vulnerability. Meeting someone new is an intense experience. Your style should not be an added stress. Allow fashion to exemplify that you are putting your best foot forward!
