Ah, the first date. An occasion that provides the perfect opportunity to utter the words that have passed every girls lips a countless number of times – ‘I have nothing to wear!’ Follow this with the inevitable half hour in which you try everything in your wardrobe on before declaring that you do, in fact, hate it all and you have what we like to call a ‘dating ‘drobe dilemma’.
Now, if what ‘they’ say is true and a person really does make their mind up within the first 7 seconds, that gives you just a snippet of time to make a jaw-dropping, drool-worthy entrance. And, let’s face it girls, in order to do that you’re going to need some seriously hot clobber! Ever on hand to help, we’ve pulled together a perfectly paired first date look that’s a cert to knock off socks.
Confidence is key to first date success, so take a leaf out of SJP’s SATC style book and channel fash queen and sex columnist, Carrie Bradshaw’s oh-so relatable shoe obsession. A beaut pair of pin-perfecting heels will have you strutting in with glamourous effect, so try this notice-me pair of cut-out suede sandals for instant, attention-grabbing impact (they also make the perfect platform for you to be swept off!)
Next comes the hard part (yes, we did say make an entrance but just lingerie and heels may take the underwear-as-outwear look a touch too far!) Instead, what you’re aiming for is somewhat nonchalant-chic. Achieve this look with an on trend printed blouse playfully tucked into a cute and feminine boucle skirt. As with every look, style is all in the details, so add a chunky bracelet of vintage-look pearls and vamp up your look with this sexy studded clutch.
Ready? Set? Swoon!
