Every first date comes with jitters and anticipation, but it's time to take one anxiety-provoking thought out of the equation: outfit stress. Use this guide to decide what to wear for every type of first date.
For him: jeans, button-down, blazer, leather shoes
It's clear he put forth effort, but he doesn't look overdone. Denim and a blazer is always a good look — the jeans are casual and comfortable, but the blazer adds a hint of sophistication.
For her: simple dress, piece of statement jewelry, booties
It's simple and easy to put together while still being dressy enough for a slew of different restaurants. A minimalistic dress with statement jewelry is not only versatile, it's fool-proof.
Movie theaters are casual by nature, but just because it's dark doesn't mean you shouldn't dress well. Choose something that will be comfortable to wear while you sit for a few hours — denim popovers and converse are perfect for guys and girls, and nothing says casual quite like denim and sneakers. Bonus tip: Opt for pieces that will keep you warm in the overly air conditioned theater.
For him: black jeans, converse, denim popover
For her: black t-shirt dress, converse, chambray popover
Day dates offer the most options — you can wear whatever you feel good in while you walk around and flaunt what you've got. These looks are functional for any activity that comes your way. Hint: Wear comfortable shoes in case you end up walking a lot.
For him: jeans, baseball tee, bomber jacket, chukkas
