Dating Outfit Tips: How to Slay an Outfit for your First Date!

You’ve done it! Landed a date with that special, gorgeous person. The excitement is mounting, you’ve booked that all-important hair appointment and have practised what you’re going to say in front of the mirror. But wait a minute, the most important thing is missing – that killer outfit to create a stunning impression on your first date.

No matter how many times you look through your wardrobe, you just can’t find the perfect outfit to give you the X-factor. This calls for something new to help you slay that first date.

The key is to feel comfortable in your outfit – this means you’ll exude confidence no matter how nervous you are on the big day! So think carefully about creating an outfit that matches your personality and the type of date you’re going on.

To make it super easy, eb&ive have pulled together four key first date outfit ideas to nail that flirty but confident first-date look!

An outdoorsy day date

Our Oprah maxi dress is the perfect choice for a casual first date outfit that will take place outdoors. Seen here in Moss, it’s also available in Marle and Onyx options.

Its soft cotton blend allows ease of movement and the confidence that comes from feeling comfortable. Whether you’re planning a day strolling round a coastal town or a picnic at a beautiful spot, this dress ticks all the boxes.

For a casual look, team it with our Maya sneakers or Anne mules for comfort from tip to toe.

This simple piece is ripe for accessorising, so add a pop of colour with our stunning Farida earrings in Plum, or channel your inner beast with our Maya loop earrings in Leopard. And a scarf in a contrasting colour, like the Vera snood in Terracotta, lets you layer your look and will keep you wrapped up against the elements too.

A day date in the city

For a city sightseeing date, you can’t go wrong with a denim-based look. Our Junko denim jeans are a bold take on an old favourite, providing plenty of stretch to flatter those curves and impress your date!

Mix up your look by pairing your denim with a smart blouse, like the understated Mahala blouse in White.

A pair of our classic Martha boots in Black will finish your outfit off, and if you’re exploring the city with your new special someone, you’ll appreciate their comfortable and practical fit.

Cocktails by night

If things are hotting up already and you’re meeting your date in a bar with the promise of some dancing later, you’ll find it’s the perfect excuse to go all-out in the glamour stakes.

The Florence mini skirt in Terracotta is an eye-catching piece that is sure to be a hit on a first date.

With a striking skirt you only need a simple top to complete your look. Keep it classy with this crisp Jacinda shirt in White. In fresh 100% linen and with v-neck and longer back, you will look cool and sophisticated.

A stylish bag is a must to finish off your look. With its round tortoise shell handle, our Coco pouch in Terracotta will keep your essentials safe while making a statement all on its own.

A dinner date for two

Go all-out romantic for our final look. It’s going to be everything you dreamed of: a romantic dinner à deux as night falls.

Slip on our Mahala shirt dress in Khaki, cinch in your waist with our Valentina belt in Tan and you’re good to go!

If you love accessories, grab a statement piece like our Rita necklace in Natural or a pair of our Ita earrings in Ivory to complete your winning first date look.
