Ladies, let’s get excited as today we are talking about something HUGE – the perfect first date outfits to wear in winter. It has been a while for me but I can still remember the magical love-is-in-the-air first date that I just want to look the best and feel nothing but put-together and attractive. While no one wants to admit it, but sometimes what we ladies think is gorgeous may not be the case in the men’s eyes. So ladies, if you wonder what to wear on the first date that guys love, ahead are the 10 outfit combos and tips enjoy!
1. PICK SOFT LIGHT HUES FOR YOUR OUTFIT
Do you know why I love dating in winter? With the crowds that wearing the boring black, brown, and all kinds of dark hues, they just make me easily stand out with the pastel shades like dusty pink, cream, lavender, and more. Basically, go for the shades that a typical straight man won’t wear and you are in the right direction.
But really, we all know colour can change our moods. Go for the lighter hues on the first date as these light hues are just delightful to look at. Not only it makes you look feminine and sweet, that just makes your looks more pop out. When I wear my pastel purple coat, I just feel way more refreshed than an ordinary black coat.
2. LOOK FEMININE AND DARLING IN LACE
As we all know men just love lace, they just do. To wear it strategically, we aren’t talking about the all-over lace dress that may end up looking too mature and dressy. Instead, you can just give a light touch with a lace trim silk camisole top for a subtle look. Wear it with shrugging off one side of your slouchy cardigan, oh my, that’s just irresistible to them. The charm about this look is you just don’t like trying things hard at all, instead, you look so effortless yet feminine as if allure is in your DNA.
Besides lace, don’t forget together feminine elements like ruffles, chiffon, silk is just equally darling. It’s time to level up our games ladies.
My Affordable Picks:
3. SHOW A STRIPE OF SKIN IN A CLASSY WAY
If you decide to show some skins on the first date, I would suggest you don’t go too over with the cleavages and legs. Indeed, men want to see that but does that mean we have to put everything on the table? We just don’t want to give the impression that we are easy. Instead, don’t underestimate showcasing your shoulder line and back as that can be truly feminine and sexy as well.
So yes, an off-shoulder knit dress and open-back sweater are such a winning option here. As a girl with a chubby face, I must say off-shoulder is my savior as it just makes my face appear to be way smaller! BIG LOVE.
- Open back sweater ( For the girls who aim lazy sexy vibes)
4. WEAR A BODYCON KNIT DRESS IN WINTER
Another way to look sexy in a poised way is, you guessed it, to show your silhouettes. Besides the little black dress, a knee-length high neck knit body dress is also worth investing in. If you are in a rush, just throw them on with a nice structured bag and now you look put-together with minimal effort.
If you opt for the bodycon dress in a relaxed cut, at least you should cinch your waist a little to sculpt the curves. But of course, if you want a killer look on the first date, go for the body-hugging one to maximize the effect. With a pair of nude heels, that’s a 10/10.
- Bodycon sweater dress with a relaxed cut
- Cowl Neck Knit bodycon dress ( You just can’t stop touching yourself with this dress lol)
5. EMBRACE THIGH HIGH BOOTS FOR A LEG-FLATTERING EFFECT
Thigh high boots are women’s best friend as it just elongates our legs wonderfully. Plus, it’s just super versatile to dress up and down. But here’s the reminder, to avoid looking tacky in over-the-knee boots, please don’t go too short for your dress. You can always add some layers to your OOTD with a plaid cape poncho or a nice long coat to balance things up.
And if you think black boots are too ordinary to wear, go for the beige one for a light hue monochrome look.
6. SCULPT YOUR SILHOUETTE WITH A BELT
If I can only invest one piece of outfit in winter, that must be the outerwear as it’s such a statement piece. Even if you are wearing off-duty ensemble like a plain tee and A-line skirt, you can instantly glam up your look with a well fitted trench coat. But again, reach for the one with belt to sculpt your curves.
7. DON’T BE TOO OVER THE TOP
Girls I know you are super chic but let’s NOT dress like a diva on the first date in winter – Men won’t get it! If you show up with a vegan fur coat and neon dress, let’s be honest that probably looks quite intimidating.
So ladies, always strike a balance between looking stylish and wearable. For example, if you want a biker girl look, instead off going all studded and punk, pair your biker jacket with a floral maxi dress and combat boots is full of personalities too.
8. OPT FOR COMFORTABLE FOOTWEAR
I know it’s so tempting to wear stilettos on the first date but trust me that would be a nightmare. You may be fine if that’s just a quick lunch date but for a longer date, I’ll urge you to go for the chunky heels for your comfort. We all know how grumpy and how terribly we walk when our feet are hurt, that just ruins everything. So ladies, always dress for both beauty and comfort.
9. STAY PUT-TOGETHER WITH MONOCHROME
As a petite girl, monochrome pairing is my perennial favorite. With similar shades being put together, it just makes my figure looks united and elongated. For a French girl style, pair a cream sweater with a white silk skirt and nude heels is how to look womanly and high class with minimal effort.
10. FINAL CHECK LIST FOR FIRST DATE IN WINTER
- Burt’s Bees 100% Natural Moisturising Lip Balm – keep your lips pleasant to look at
- Mint Dental Floss after lunch/ dinner (Trust me, you’ll need this)
- Pheromone perfume – for magnificent sexual scent (Don’t judge ladies, sometimes I just need some extra boost)
