Date night dressing. It’s never easy finding an outfit for a date. We all know the drill, you need to look nice but not OTT, you want to look like you’ve made an effort but not tried too hard, show a bit of skin but not too much… Let’s face it there’s already too many things to think about on a first date so I’ve saved you the time and put together my first date outfit guide.

This little Zara playsuit is perfect for those summer date nights. It’s a wrap around which makes it super flattering, the colour and long sleeves make it perfect for the evenings. The frills make it flirty and cute but the low neckline shows enough skin to avoid looking too ‘cutesy’! So you can imagine how annoyed I am that it appears to have sold out online! But keep your eyes peeled in stores!

Side Note: Does anyone else find that whenever someone tells you they like something you’re wearing and asks where it’s from, 9/10 times it’s from Zara?! It’s one of my favourite places to shop for trends. Trying to link anything for y’all to shop however = nightmare with their quick turn around!

The Day Date/Drinks outside on a warm evening…

The wrap dress. Such a fail safe when it comes to a summer date outfit. Ticks all the boxes for being pretty, feminine and flirty, dressy but not OTT, flattering but not too revealing. Plus it’s #trending so we’re not short of options! I’ve linked my favourites below.


Drinks on a cold evening (it’s the UK after all)

When it’s cold or raining you need something a little less floral. A skirt and top combo is fail-safe. You can add a coat for warmth if needed, or long sleeves and the over look is less summery but still fits the criteria. Ruffles, fraying and denim are everywhere at the moment so skirts got a whole lot more exciting this summer. Here’s my favourites…


Pair them with…

If you’re unsure what the weather will do, the perfect shoes are mules (find my top picks here), involving baring enough of your feet to look summery but still covered enough to avoid the type of looks you get if you’re caught wearing sandals in the rain. And if you’ve got to the end of this post and all you’re thinking is, ‘I’m just not a dress/skirt person’ try out some culottes like these or trousers such as these I wore to a date night earlier on in the Spring!
