Outfit Ideas: What to Wear on a First Date


First dates can be nerve wracking, but picking the right outfit can go a long way in quelling first date jitters. Of course picking the outfit has its own challenges, especially if you aren’t sure where you going, or what you will be doing. Here are a few rules for selecting just the right look:

  1. Dress up: Skip the jeans on a first date, there will be plenty of chances to dress down in the future, so bring your fashion A game. Wear something that makes you feel special and attractive, but don’t go overboard, you don’t want to come off as high maintenance. 
  2. Be comfortable: While a first date might feel like the right occasion to buy a new dress, avoid the urge! The last thing you need is an outfit that is untested, otherwise you might discover your dress sleeves keep falling or your new top pinches you. 
  3. Wear the right shoes: Part of the fun of a first date is not knowing what might happen! You could end up at a venue with no seating or change venues at some point, and you should select footwear that allows for that kind of flexibility. Now that doesn’t mean you have to abandon heels, but maybe scrap the really high stilletos that will make you teeter and totter or have aching feet. Instead opt for wedges or a ballet flats to stay comfortable and cute all night.
  4. Arrive prepared: Make sure to plan ahead for your date, get a pack of gum, a small container of perfume, a pack of tissues, anything to avoid that “whoops” moment when you realize you left unprepared.

Here are a few first date looks that are fun, fresh, and flirty:

Cocktails:

Happy Hour is always a winning date option, low lights, drink specials, and lovely little booths to site in and stare at your date over your favorite cocktail. Don’t be afraid to wear a nice dress and throw in a green purse, some gorgeous black wedges, and just the right shade of lipstick.

Cute Outfit Ideas on What to Wear with Sweatpants


It used to be that the only people caught outdoors in sweats were college students, but that is no longer the case, after all, who says that you have to sacrifice comfort to be fashionable? Sure, you probably won’t see anyone wearing them to a cocktail party, but that doesn’t mean you can’t look chic wearing sweats while running errands, getting brunch, or even hitting up a happy hour. However, there are some simple rules to follow in order to pull this look off:

  • Get updated: Ditch the baggy, stretched out, holey sweaters from 1995. Instead, invest in some more fitted, colorful, and modern sweats. You don’t want to look like Rocky Balboa after he leaves the gym.
  • Accessorize, accessorize, accessorize: Grab a hat, scarf, sun glasses, earrings, bracelets, etc., adding little details will show that you are wearing an outfit rather than last night’s pajamas.
  • Have confidence: The most important element to wearing sweats is believing that you can wear them anywhere and never apologizing that you are comfortable.

Stacking Bracelets – Four Suggestions on How to Wear Bracelets


Hi All – With all the different styles of bangles and bracelets out there, stacking bracelets can get overwhelming. Here are some quick suggestions on how to choose bracelets for stacking. We all have different styles and different tolerances/lifestyles for how many bangles we can wear at a time so if you have other tips on stacking, please comment below.

1) Color Consistency – For an understated look, choose one color palette and mix and match thickness and textures. For example, silver bangles in different thicknesses and textures or black bangles (leather, fabric, or even metal bangles with black accents).

2) Choose a Focal point – For a more balanced look, choose one chunky piece in a bold color (maybe a chunky enamel bangle bracelet) and stack with thinner simple bangles on one side. Wear the chunky piece as the first bracelet so it supports the other bracelets.

3) Keep it Simple – Stacking bracelets can be as simple as stacking just 2 or 3 bangles – Pick two contrasting colors of a similar style bracelet – for example, a turquoise resin bangle and a similar thickness metal bangle.

4) Touch of Bling or Color – To create focus and balance, break up your stack with a bangle with crystal or rhinestone or something in a contrasting color. This keeps balance the look and adds an interesting aspect to the stack.


Of course, some of these suggestions can be used together as well – such as adding a thin crystal bangle to the color consistent look. Clear crystal goes with anything and creates some focus to the stack.

If you have other suggestions, please comment and tell us. Do you have a system or method that you frequently use when deciding which bracelets to wear together?
