‘What if I’m overdressed?’ ‘What if I wear a dress instead of this pair of jeans?’ First dates always seem to bombard us with a lot of ‘What If’s’ and what to wear constitutes a large part of that question.


We’re mostly consumed with trying to impress our dates that we so easily forget to have fun dressing up.

With these five outfit ideas, you can harness your creativity into dressing up elegantly, smartly, and beautifully to leave a lasting good impression on your next date.

  • Idea 1: Mum Jeans + Classy Blouse + Mules

Roll out with this outfit if you’re unsure of the kind of date you’re having. This outfit is the perfect balance between cool cat and classy meaning that you’ll never be caught being overdressed or underdressed.


While the Mum-Jean gives a laid-back look, the classy blouse and fashionable mules give off an air of sophistication, that vibe of je ne sais quoi to your entire look.

  • Idea 2: Ankara Wrap Dress + Ankara Hand-crafted Sandals

Alte queens, get in here. Because wrap dresses can never fail. If you love wrap dresses, opt for one with a memorable print, colour, and cut. Pair this with stone-studded low sandals or hand-made sandals made from ankara.

If you live for your heels, pair your wrap dress with low-cut heels.

  • Idea 3: Print Skirt + White T-Shirt + Flats

Whether in midi or mini sizes, printed skirts are the absolute best solutions for a date outfit. Pairing them with white t-shirt and flat sandals or mules, gives your entire outfit just enough edge to leave a lingering memory on your date’s mind.

  • Idea 4: Statement Jumpsuit + Sneakers
