As the New Year comes into play many people are being faced with the reality of dating again. Getting back into the swing of things is a daunting, yet enjoyable experience that needs to be embraced no matter how old you are. Meeting the right person who can impact your life in a positive way is what most women are looking for. Going on a first date doesn’t have to be overwhelming; using style, flair, elegance and stunning accessories to look and feel amazing is one of the best tools anybody can use. Whether it’s matching the proposed date setting or using jewellery wisely, there are so many ways to wow the other person right from the start....
Accessorise Fabulously Even with the most simple and chic outfit, there will always be a jaw dropping piece of jewellery to compliment it perfectly. From dazzling statement earrings to a designer bracelet, choose a couple of jewellery items that bring out the features of the outfit. Don’t forget about fabulous footwear either to accentuate the entire ensemble; sassy stilettos, sophisticated sandals or fancy flats will all do the trick just perfectly.
Enhancing Natural Beauty The most important thing every first dater needs to remember is that natural beauty should never be ignored. Instead of masking every natural feature, they should simply be slightly enhanced using subtle, complimentary makeup techniques. A swish of nude lipstick, a dash of dewy highlighter and a hint of glowing concealer is all that any lady needs to make a dazzling first impression on a date.
Try to Match the Setting The setting and atmosphere of the date will be a big influence on the outfit that needs to be chosen. A slick, plain, black turtle neck teamed with skinny jeans, heels and a jewellery piece with a pop of colour would be the perfect ensemble for a smart casual dinner date. If it’s a more relaxed setting such as a walk outdoors or a brunch date, it is important to dress appropriately. A cute floral tea dress or a long skirt dressed down with flats might be the perfect solution for this kind of ambience.
Comfort is Key The most important element regarding style on a first date is to be comfortable. Wear clothes that are relaxing and that depict your individual personality. Even if it’s the most stunning ensemble to grace a room, it won’t be much fun if it’s uncomfortable, tight and restricting. Remember that comfort is always key when it comes to a first date no matter what the time, day or setting may be.
As long as comfort, accessories and the date setting are all considered you should feel confident and calm, which will always be huge contributing factor to the success of a first date. Feeling self-assured, independent and poised is the very best way to approach a first date...so here's hoping its a successful one ;-)
