If you’ve managed to snag a date, finding an outfit may be the most stressful thing on your mind. Instead of worrying yourself over what you’ll wear, take a deep breath and read on for the best stress-free outfits to wear on your first date and make a big impression.

First Date

Feel Confident in Rouge

When you’re doubting yourself and you have no idea what to wear, the little red dress should be your answer. Red has been psychologically proven to amp up your courage, energy, and excitement. Even looking at the dress you plan to wear will put a positive spin on any turmoil of emotions. Furthermore, researchers at the University of Rochester have discovered that when men were shown pictures of women wearing red, they were far more interested in starting a romantic relationship with them

If a dress is the wrong outfit for your date, you can still wear red. Choose a bright crimson blouse, fancy ruby boutique shorts, or even lush coral lipstick.

Freely Flowing Fairy

Since it’s summer time, light and airy fabrics are an obvious choice. Soft fabric and a designer maxi dress will envelop you in comfort—not to mention they’re flirtatious and feminine! Choose colors that complement your skin tone and your date will be completely starstruck.

Knowledge is Power

Know your body type and stick to your style. Body types are pretty hard to figure out, but once you’ve figured out yours, stick to the styles you are flattering. If you’ve got great legs, show them off!

Sticking to your style can be difficult when it comes to date night. Often, your outfit is dictated by where you’re going, what you’re doing, and the impression you want to make. If you want to feel comfortable and still wear a date appropriate outfit, you can opt to elevate your go-to jeans and tee with heels and accessories, or dress down your stiletto style with harem pants and a leather jacket.

Less is More

When it’s time to add hair, makeup, and accessories to your outfit, try to keep it simple. Complex hair and makeup routines take up a lot of time, and during the summer, perspiration can ruin all of your hard work.

According to Daily Mail, understated makeup and a loose ponytail can give the impression that you’re approachable and friendly. Your date won’t be intimidated and conversation will flow smoothly.

Be Prepared

There’s nothing more frustrating than deciding on the right outfit the night before than encountering a multitude of problems five minutes before your date. Discovering the clothes you wanted to wear are dirty, being disappointed with the look once you’ve put it on, and not being able to find the clothes you want the day of your date will put you in a bad mood and derail your date. For these crucial reasons, it’s important that you stay prepared in advance and have a go-to selection of perfect outfits ready for any spontaneous date night.

Breathe In, Breathe Out

Following all these steps before you even plan a date is a great way to stay stress free as your date approaches. Set aside a few outfits, like an outdoor activities ensemble, a formal dress, and a relaxed, summer boutique maxi dress, and you’ll be calm and ready for a date any time.
