This trend is all about mood-boosting colors and so if you want to really make a splash, think about working in some bright color clothing to your outfit, or at the very least add a pop of bold color to your outfit through an accessory to a muted or darker outfit. Wearing color suggests confidence and that’s key on a first date.
The rule for dressing for a first date is pretty simple. Wear your personality, be casual but not too informal, and stay comfortable. More so on coffee dates. Something breathable, airy, and effortless is an excellent place to start. Opt for joggers or side-striped pants that have taken over the fashion world, tuck in a plain T-shirt, and complete the look with white Converse shoes.
Jeans, a casual T-shirt, and a layer on top is fail-proof too. Put your hair up in a bun, half-bun, or a messy ponytail. Go for nude lipstick and neutral makeup. Throw on a pair of oversized glasses to complete the look.
