Date in denim: Define casual cool
So here’s the thing. If you’d call your relationship as ‘cool, easy, comfortable’, jeans are the way to go. Pair the skinny ankle length jeans from Ms Taken with a stylish off-shoulder fitted top in shimmer grey with interesting front detail. Or try the distressed denims from Ginger paired with a sleeveless striped girly top. Layer with a light throw if it gets a little chilly. Comfort with style is the way to go here.
What to wear on a first date? Do the trousers (or a jumpsuit?)
If you’re not sure what to wear on a first date, a semi-formal look never fails. We love the cheerful, striped midi pants paired with a chic round-neck top in sunflower yellow from Code. And the smart solid trousers with a belt, also from Code, paired with a monochrome tee with a neutral motif. Layer with a jacket if liked and you’re ready to slay him with your look – stylish yet subdued. For the subtle femme touch – the jumpsuit from Only with a cape in the mellow old rose, does the trick.
Choose to date in a dress, rekindle sparks
If you’ve known him for a while and it’s getting a bit been-there-done-that – dress it up. A charming frilly polka dotted midi from Code with fancy drop earrings will sure get his attention and keep it too. The lace detailed short dress from Ginger also strikes high on the trend chart. Matching shoes and over-sized hoop earrings complete the striking frame. Or try the red from Ginger, can’t go wrong in the colour of romance.
If your date’s also your buddy, shorts, skorts and skirts it is
Slay with the smart black elasticated skorts from Ginger worn with a white t-shirt, a faux leather jacket and short boots – both in black. Go bowling or dancing, it’s a fun Valentine date that you’re waiting for. The solid denim skirt from Fame Forever with a fitted tank top would be great for that fun double date with a friend couple – accessorize with a scarf and a jacket if you want.
Make the Valentine date-night extra special
- Gift him a hamper of things to remind him of your time together: chocolates he always gets for you, a booking at your favourite restaurant, his signature scent that you love…
2) Pick him up for your date instead of him picking you up.
3) Let him choose what you want to do, where you want to go, on Valentine’s evening. Or suggest what you know he would love.
