In everyday life you want to make an outstanding first impression, but in the dating world the pressure is really on to blow them away and secure that second date. In addition to saying all the right things and feeling genuine chemistry what you choose to wear will also impact the way you feel and how your date will remember you. In the winter you’re a little more limited in your wardrobe selections since you need to stay warm as well but there's no need for you to sacrifice style! Here are three common first dates and how you can rock them in the winter.
It is unlikely that you’ll have an outdoor date in the dead of winter but if you do there are beautiful options that will allow you to look great without taking off your coat. Since the focus will be on your outerwear you want to go with something chic like a double breasted peacoat or a sleek leather jacket. Top off either with your favorite scarf and a pair of warm gloves.
A pair of lace tights would contrast nicely with the peacoat and give a seductive flash of skin without leaving you to be too cold so you if can muster up the courage to wear a dress under your coat then definitely grab some lace tights as well. Wedge booties will make this book irresistible and classy.
Dark wash skinny jeans or jeggings were made for leather jackets so wear them together. In addition combat, military inspired boots are extremely popular this season and if you put them over a pair of thick leg warmers they will complete your edgy look.
Some of the best first dates are as simple as grabbing a cup of coffee or going to see a cheesy romantic comedy. For these locations you need to find the perfect balance between looking way too over dressed and looking like a bum. The key is to find something that is both flattering and warm with a feminine touch. An oversized cable knit sweater may not seem like the logical first choice but is actually a great top for this occasion. Most oversized sweaters will expose the shoulder and back which gives that perfect flash of flesh to keep your outfit interesting. Since the top will be baggy you want to compliment it with a pair of dark wash skinny jeans or tight brown or grey cords if you want to change it up a bit. Boating shoes like Sperry's will make the overlook preppy, tall boots will create a more refined look.
Dinner dates allow you to be dressier and the warmth of the restaurant won’t really restrict your outfit. Anything that you can layer is probably your best bet just in case the restaurant is a little chilly. Under a chiffon blouse wear a matching or nude colored camisole. Over the blouse slip on a long button down cardigan. For added flair pick out a thin belt and secure it over the cardigan. On the bottom you can go with your favorite pair of jeans or even a tight body con skirt and some cute tights. Boots are again the top choice for this season but if you’re daring a pair of pumps is a nice change.
