Whether you’re preparing for a very special Valentine’s Day date or are just wanting to find a dress for that first date with the guy you’re seeing, the chances are that you’re stressing about it. If you’re finding it difficult to decide what to wear for date night, you’re not alone. It’s hard picking that outfit that’s the perfect combination of sophisticated, sexy, and stylish, isn’t it?
You want to ensure that you look incredible, but you also don’t want to look overdressed or like you’ve tried too hard. Navigating date night fashion is no easy task, that’s for sure. The ideal outfit for date night is a dress because dresses are so easily adaptable - the question is what type of dress is the right choice for you?
When it comes to selecting the colour of that perfect date night dress, it’s important to understand that there’s no right or wrong colour. The shade that you select should be a shade that you feel comfortable wearing, and also one that works well with your skin tone and hair colour. For instance, while a lemon dress may look incredible on your friend who has dark hair and olive skin, a red silk dress may look best with your pale skin and light hair. If you’re not sure about which colours suit you best, take the time to try some different dress designs on, to see which colours you prefer. It’s also a good idea to take into account the accessories that you hope to team it with, to ensure that you don’t buy an outfit that clashes.
When it comes to picking a dress, the important thing to remember is that everyone has different body shapes. This means that just because a certain style of dress looks good on your best friend, that doesn’t mean that it will look good on you, and that’s fine - we’re all different. Take the time to try on some different dress types to get a feel for the styles that tend to look best on you. A-line dresses are one dress style that tends to work well on every body shape and size, so if you’re stuck for a dress type to choose, you can’t go wrong with A-line.
Once you’ve selected the shape of the dress, the next step is to find the right style. When it comes to choosing the right style of dress, take into account the length and sleeve style. Ideally, you want to steer clear of mini dress styles, as these tend to be inappropriate for certain venues. The best styles to opt for are over the knee or under the knee - mid length designs. Floor length styles can also look great, but they can make you look a little overdressed. Of course, the important thing to remember is that you need to feel comfortable in the dress style you select, as otherwise, you won’t enjoy yourself, so wear what makes you feel good.
See, picking a date night dress doesn’t have to be a nightmare, after all, it’s just a case of taking your time to think the decision through.
