First Dates - they can be amazing when you instantly click with your beau/x and the chemistry is electric but they can also be super stressful. Where are you going to go? Will you know what to talk about? And, more importantly, what are you going to wear? In this blog we’ve got some great suggestions for what to wear on a first date plus size edition for a variety of different date options from dinner, picnic, cinema or drinks. Whatever the occasion, we’ve got the look for you.
Our number one top tip for choosing what to wear on a first date when plus size is to go for comfort. Meeting a new match (even if you’ve been chatting online for a while) can be nerve wracking and the last thing you want to do is to be adjusting your outfit every few minutes.
The Shirt Dress With Boots Look
Elevate your shirt dress style with a cute pair of boots and matching accessories. We suggest swapping out the belt that the dress comes with and instead wearing a slim belt. This style is great for a casual date during the day like meeting for coffee and checking out the local art gallery.
The Skirt and Shirt Look
If dressing business casual is more your vibe then we love a skirt and button up shirt look. Choose a midi skirt in a skater style and add a belt to show off your waist and add a blazer for a touch of sophistication. We love this look for a theatre or cinema date.
The Jeans and a T-shirt Look
You can’t go wrong with a classic jeans and a t-shirt combo but for your first date take this outfit choice and turn it up to 11. Dark wash jeans in a slim or straight leg fit, give you a sleek clean look. Stick to plain tee and away from slogans for a sophisticated style.
If like us, you’re always looking for a cover up for your outfit we love a duster jacket. It's super easy to wear and is a great way to dress up your look. Then all you need is to add heels for your brunch date.
The Midi Dress and Denim Jacket Look
For a picnic date, we love a floral dress with wedges - floppy hat optional. The very cutesy feminine vibes of this style work really well with the classic wardrobe staple; a denim jacket. For an edgier style, swap your floral dress for a romper or playsuit or switch up the patterns with stripes.
The Jumpsuit Look
We mentioned earlier how choosing a comfortable outfit for your first date is key and what could be more comfortable than a jumpsuit? These very chic one-pieces can be dressed up with heels and a clutch for a dinner date, or for a more casual style pair with sandals.
No matter what you choose to wear, have fun on your first date and be your fabulous self!
