Playing dress up can be anything from fun to nerve-wrecking. Deciding what to wear can be like a mind-bending riddle. It all depends on who you are and whether you speak the language of style and fashion. Even if you’re not the stylist of the year, you should have a grasp at what works for you. Casual, sassy, mischievous, funny, playful or even plain Jane, your style defines you. It also tells people a lot about you before you speak.
So, you don’t want to appear before your date looking like you just rolled out of bed because of the word ‘casual’. You also don’t want him to think you didn’t care enough to try to impress him. He’s going to try his best to impress you as well. If he doesn’t, and looks like he just took a bath in the trash, just pass by or have a friend call in with an “emergency”.
If you’re going on a casual first date, it’s one of the easiest things ever. This doesn’t mean you should just throw on a pair of jeans and a top, and push your feet through a pair of sneakers. This is casual, but you have to be careful not to be too casual. You have to do three things:
- Be comfortable.
- Make a statement.
- Define your style.
The major goal is to be comfortable, so here are five Plat4om choice items of what you should wear on a casual first date.
1. Make a statement with your shoes
You can dress simple, but ensure that your shoes say something about you. Leopard print says you’re a fun and wild girl.
2.Denim shorts that scream, “I’m fun!”
Go super casual and just maybe a bit extra in a simple pair of shorts that show off your legs.
3. Glam up with a bag and shoes
Go simple with a white lace top and nice trousers. Then pop it up with a sharp colour, like red.
4. Simple accessories
Casual is anything but boring with a playful accessory and top. Use simple accessories that complement your look to add that special, finishing touch to it.
5. Cheat style just for you
Now here’s someone to inspire you. She’s casual and chic at the same time. You can also dress like a model off duty. He’d be struck dumb at the sight of his casual first date.
