Decipher the Date Night Dress Code

Decipher the Date Night Dress Code

We can’t ease those nerves, but we can help you with one key element: what to wear on a first date

By: Maddi John

So, you’re not sure what to wear on a first date? It’s tricky. Whether you're heading out on Valentine's Day or later in the month, you'll be wanting something you feel confident in, that lets them know a little more about you. But you don’t want to overdress nor do you want to underdress; you want to match their vibe as closely as possible. So, what to wear? Liberty knows. Sure, the ideal first date outfit is up to you, but we’d suggest that going smart casual is your safest bet. In other words, that old faithful jeans-and-a-nice-top combo. Here’s what to wear on a date…

An All-Purpose Jean

AGOLDE Criss-Cross Upsized Jeans, £260

Unless you’re doing something active or super elevated, a comfy, yet stylish pair of jeans is a wise choice, suitable for most set-ups, whether it's a romantic dinner for two or a trip to the cinema. For an elevated take on the classic jean, opt for Agolde’s Criss Cross Upsized jeans featuring an asymmetric waistline and cut from light wash denim.

A Tasteful Top

Saloni Clementine Top, £350

Onto the next step – the top. If you’re sitting across from your date for dinner, then this is the item that’ll get the most airtime, so it pays to give it some consideration. We suggest going for something playful but elegant, like this Clementine top from Saloni. With its sweetheart neckline, and off-the-shoulder silhouette, it has a certain level of glamour while still looking pretty effortless. A win-win.

A Sumptuous Spritz

Diptyque Do Son Eau de Parfum, £140

While your natural pheromones will be hard at work, it’s also a nice idea to layer on a perfume that reflects your personality, and we have a feeling that Diptyque’s Do Son could be right up your street. It’s light, but intoxicating with a floral base of spicy tuberose. It’s delicious.
