So we might not be the next Vogue, but as dating experts, Fluttr are here to help! We know what it takes to make genuine, honest and real connections. Although your outfit shouldn’t be your first priority, self-confidence is an important part of creating a positive first impression. Here we have provided some tips for first date outfits sure to provide some courage and self-assurance.

Comfort first

Considering where you are going and what you are doing, your first date outfit should be chosen with comfort in mind. There’s nothing worse than a new dress hugging too tightly or a pair of shoes rubbing the wrong way. You don’t want to be tripping over in a pair of high heels or wishing you could unbutton those pesky jeans at the dinner table! The winning formula for a first date outfit is comfort and feeling like your best self.

Jeans and a nice top

Who hasn’t heard this one before? It’s a simple, go-to combination for those casual daytime dates. Whilst also being ideal for creating a day to night look. So, if your date suggests an evening cocktail after a day of getting to know each other, you won’t feel out of place. Throw over a classic trench coat for some warmth and a pair of your favourite shoes for additional comfort.

Sexy Evening Attire

If your date has planned a romantic evening meal over a daytime activity, something a little more dressy is required. This doesn’t have to be a pair of heels and a bodycon dress, leather trousers, blouses, and skirts are also a great go-to on this occasion. Some more extravagant venues may require a pair of heels. Our best advice is to stick with something you know. If you have a reliable pair of heels you know you can walk in and are comfortable on your feet, you’ve got your shoes sorted. Don’t sacrifice your night for a pair of brand new 6 inch stilettos!


Adding the finishing touches to your date outfit with some accessories is a good way to inject your personality into your look. Prefer a modern, simplistic style? Gold hoops and bracelets take a casual look from a 6 to a 10, giving your outfit an expensive feel. If you prefer a statement piece to match your outgoing personality, a colour pop in the form of a bold earring or daring shoe is the perfect choice for amplifying your jeans and tee fit or a classic LBD.
