18 Aug V-Day Guide: What to Wear On a Date
Reading time: 3 minutes
It’s soon to be Valentine’s Day! Are you stuck on how to dress for a date?
Worried you won’t impress your date if you’re not dressed perfectly for the occasion? No stress!
This post is the guidance you’ve been waiting for as an elegant young professional.
Here’s a guide to clear things up, and help you pick out the right outfit.
The perfect outfit all comes down to these simple factors.
The setting (the location of the date & the decor), the tone of the evening (I assume it will be romantic for most), the theme (how fancy or casual will things be?), and the overall set up or plan (will you pick up your date? do you meet somewhere?).
Based on the answers to these questions, there are four kinds of outfits one can pull off here.
Firstly, the casual look for a night in.
Jeans and a t-shirt is a prefect combo for a romantic night in. It shows you made some effort to get ready for your date, but you will still be comfortable enough to chill at home, make some food and lounge around all evening long.
Plus, you can wear your most comfortable pair of jeans. It’s not necessary to wear your trendiest, tights pair if you’re staying in.
Secondly, the casual look for going out.
Dress pants and a simple shirt for a casual date out is a great go-to in this case. Here, Ryoma (on the right) is sporting a simple black t-shirt with a nice pair of trousers.
This one is ideal for a casual dinner date or even to go grab some dessert. You can also tie up the whole look with an awesome pair of casual shoes.
Thirdly, the casual chic look for a nice dinner.
Dress pants and a dress shirt for a nice dinner at a slightly pricey restaurant is your uniform for the evening. In this case, Marc (on the right) is wearing a casual dress shirt, with a nice pair of pants.
Not to mention the addition of a chunky watch and a classic belt ties up the entire look.
Lastly, the dressy look for a fancy date.
Are you taking your date to the nicest restaurant in the city? Well, if you are, then a suit is your best option.
Not only will this classy look impress your date, but you will be appropriately dressed for the overall theme of the evening.
Make sure you also tell your date the tone you’ve set for the evening and to dress up, as most people like to dress appropriately for occasions they are invited to.
Impressions are everything on a date! Learn to dress for a date the right way!
Be sure to master the art of being dressed appropriately to impress your significant other and to set the tone for an awesome date.
