K-Fashion Tips For The Perfect First Date Look
Picking out an outfit for a first date can be difficult, and you might find that suddenly all the clothes in your wardrobe don’t look as good as when you first bought them. If you’re the kind of person who spends hours putting together the perfect outfit, this article might help make the process easier!
Let’s take a look at how to pick the perfect outfit for a first date.
Grabbing brunch or coffee together is a great first date idea. Because the setting is less formal than having a meal, the relaxed atmosphere might make it easier to have a proper conversation with your date. Also, there are plenty of Instragam-worthy cafes out there, and it’s a great opportunity to take lots of pictures!
So what should you wear on a casual date?
Also known as a summer dress, a sundress is simply a casual dress that is usually worn in warm weather. Sundresses are often sleeveless and made of lightweight material such as cotton, making them perfect for the summer. But they can be worn in slightly colder weather too if you throw a cardigan over the dress, or wear a top under it.
T-shirts are most commonly worn under dresses in Korean fashion, but turtlenecks have been in trend recently, and wearing a turtleneck under your sundress is the perfect way to keep warm while staying trendy.
For a more conventional first date, dinner (and maybe drinks after, depending on how well you hit it off with your date) is the way to go, and what you wear will depend on the place that you choose to have dinner. While there are casual dinner joints, dinner is generally a more formal affair, and it’s always a good idea to get dressed up for a dinner date!
Of course, you might freak your date out if you show up in full formal attire, so you should aim for smart casual instead.
Maxi skirts have a feminine but slightly more mature vibe. While miniskirts are cute and great for the daytime, they may not be appropriate if you’re having dinner in a nice restaurant. Not only are there many different types of maxi skirts, they are also easy to style. You can dress it up with a nice blouse, or dress it down with a t-shirt.
For an extra cosy vibe, we recommend styling it with a knitted top, such as a cardigan or a pullover. Go for an oversized top to achieve the K-Fashion look!
Best of both worlds
Sometimes, a coffee date can turn into a dinner date, so the perfect first date look should ideally be suitable for both a casual day outing and night out. The simplest way to achieve this is by mixing items from the two different looks, to create an outfit that you can wear seamlessly from day to night.
You can replicate the summery vibes of a sundress by going for a cute sleeveless top, and styling it with a mid-length skirt that’s both suitable for the daytime and appropriate for a night out. Complete the outfit with a cardigan, a shoulder bag, and your favourite pair of all-white sneakers.
