How to dress for a first date – Haute Rogue style
The clothes, the make-up, the hair – mastering how to dress for a first date can be tricky business. But don’t worry, we’ve got you covered – on the good date outfits front at least. Whether you’re looking for cute clothes to wear on a day date to the park or a dinner-date dress that ticks all the right boxes for how to look hot for a first date, we’ve taken it upon ourselves to make sure you’ll have head-turning style for all occasions. Ladies listen up, these three styling tips will ensure you’ll always know what to wear on a first date whether it’s low key, smart-causal or full-on sophisticated. After all, first impressions matter.
The Occasion: Daytime Date Look
Looking for cute clothes to wear on a daytime date? This season’s love affair with ruffles and contemporary shirting lends itself perfectly to casual summer dressing. Somewhere in-between chic and I-got-this-call-20-minutes-ago is just where you want to be for a hot day date outfit so looking to cool lightweight shirts and shirt dress that are elevated with modern, on-trend ruffles is a great call. When it comes to styling, blue-wash denim shorts are a match made in sartorial heaven.
If you’re looking for a hot first date outfit for cooler climates that’s still a little low-key, look to SS18’s mood for reimagined knitwear – yes, the season’s runways proved that sweaters needn’t ever be boring. Contemporary lace-up accents are big news in knitwear this season, so create a good date outfit with this as your starting point. Think soft-to-the-touch slouchy shapes with statement sleeves or a skin-baring lace-up back and team with your favorite skinny jeans for a brunch date outfit that delivers on all counts.
The Occasion: Smart-Casual Drinks Date
What to wear on a drinks date? A smart-casual look that’s chic and contemporary for sure. A cute date dress for after-hours at a cocktail bar will strike just the right balance. And there’s a couple of new-season styles we’ve scouted out that will fit the bill. Make sure a smart-casual date dress maintains an air of cool by ensuring it’s not too fitted – side note, styles rendered in fine knits with a touch of embroidery or a unique neck detail will up the style stakes too.
But if you’d rather smarten up your separates for a hot date look, then sultry satin tops are the way to go. They’re perfect for styling with tapered pants and can be toughened up with a pair of high-rise leather trousers if your style is more hard-edged. Invest in a sexy date night look that will take you from the bar to the club with ease with a plunging satin camisole – and add some chunky jewelry and statement red lips for good measure.
The Occasion: Sophisticated Dinner Date
It’s Friday night and you’re booked into that restaurant that you’ve been wanting to go to forever. For all-out glamor, a sexy date night dress is essential. And if we’re being more specific, a form-fitting midi dress is just the ticket. Whether you’re looking for a modern update on the little black dress or a hot date dress that’s shivering with sequin embellishment, the most imperative part is that it sculpts your body – (investing in a style that’s blend with a touch of stretch will instantly make the most out of your curves).
For the finer details, finish off a sexy date night outfit with sophisticated barely-there sandals, sultry tousled hair and polished jewelry that compliments the color of your dress.
