What to Wear on a First Date

Modern dating is hard work, but choosing an outfit doesn’t have to be with these fail-safe, first date outfits.

When it comes to modern dating it’s hard to know where to start. Long gone are the days where someone would try to buy you a drink or – shock horror – try to talk to you in person.

Traditional dating has been replaced with a variety of websites and apps where you swipe, scroll or super-like your way into a relationship. Meaning your first date is more of a blind date, putting even more pressure on the age-old question – what do I wear?!

We all know a first date sometimes seems like an uphill battle with all the classic questions running through your head;

Will they like me?
Will they notice how long it’s taken me to apply my make up?
Is my hair ok?
Is this too dressy?
Do I need to buy something new?
Is it obvious I’ve spent the last 4 hours stressing about what’s the ‘perfect’ date night outfit?

But, you can sit down and breathe as we are here to help and make things that easier for you, with 5 fail-safe outfits guaranteed to make you feel fabulous. All you need to do is turn up!
