It can be difficult to decide what to wear for a date, especially if you’re doing something new. Whether you’re heading out for a romantic meal or spending more time together outdoors, we’ve come up with the ultimate style guide for 2019.
Watching a film
Heading to the cinema is one classic date that many of us enjoy. Of course, you still want to make an effort for the big day, but you need to be comfy when you’re snuggling during the film.
Jeans and heeled boots are a perfect option for this type of date. Pair your black skinny jeans with a bright Bardot top and cute tote bag (perfect for hiding snacks as well as looking stylish!). Bring some colour to your outfit with animal print ankle boots or chunky printed scarf.
Grabbing some food first? Choose something dressier like a loose-fitted T-shirt dress and over-the knee boots.
Romantic walk for two
Explore the outdoors with your other half. Of course, you can expect lower temperatures in the winter, so you need to wrap up well!
Prioritise practicality when it comes to exploring outdoors. Add layers to your outfit with a cosy fleece, padded puffer jacket and a cute bobble hat. If you’re planning on going out to lunch on your way home, consider wearing a dressy top under your layers, just in case your other half wants to snap a photo of you as a memory of your perfect day.
You deserve to go all out every so often with a fine dining meal! It might be a restaurant that you and your other half have been wanting to visit for a while, but you’ve been saving it for a special occasion. With some fine dining venues operating a strict dress code, what should you wear?
Dress formal in one of your floor length dresses. Many women go for a fancy look when they’re heading to a posh restaurant so it’s unlikely that you’ll look out-of-place. If you feel overdressed, pair yours with flat shoes and a short jacket. Alternatively, you could pair a midi dress with heeled boots and a stylish clutch. Go for a statement print and flirty frills to channel date night vibes — but remember to avoid overly bright tones.
A few drinks
There’s nothing better than letting your hair down with your other half over a few drinks — what should you wear?
Channel romance and love vibes with a pink mini dress, scarlet lacy bodysuit or a bold ruby-coloured jumpsuit. Or, stay classic in a LBD and accessorise by adding a pop of colour to your outfit with red accessories. Elevate your ensemble with statement stilettos or barely there block heels. Finish the look with dainty jewellery such as heart-shaped earrings and a pendant necklace.
Save your money and have a cost night in for two. Think a candlelit home-made meal for two followed by popcorn and your favourite film. You can still dress up though, even if you do want to get changed into your pyjamas straight after dinner!
Maximise comfort levels since you’re in the house! You could opt for an accordion midi skirt, paired with an off-the-shoulder crop top. Or, choose an unstructured jumpsuit that’ll look great if you decide to head out after eating!
There’s no need to stress about your footwear here so accessorise in other ways with hooped earrings and a matching bracelet.
