First dates are classic make it or break it situations and it’s safe to say that we’ve all been there before. There is no denying that we all want to make an impression and that’s usually the reason why first dates are exciting and nerve-wracking at the same time. While you can spend time daydreaming about getting to know your new beau, there is one vital question you must ask yourself: what do I wear?
It’s a dilemma we’re all familiar with and luckily, we’ve got just the right thing to help you get started! KURVE shares fun and sustainable tips on putting together an outfit that will definitely linger on your date’s mind long after the day is over.
For Day Dates
If your beau prepared a date during the day, you might expect to spend a few hours outdoors just as much as you would indoors. It’s important to remember that day dates may entail activities that demand mobility.
If you’re wondering how to pull off a chic look without sacrificing comfort, here are some of our best tips to get you the best of both:
Basics are versatile pieces that work for any activity.

This tip may be plain as day but if you pay closer attention to details such as location, time, and weather, your outfit choices will differ accordingly. You must take into account certain factors such as comfort, style, and even functionality if needed.
Luckily, KURVE has a great selection of basic tops that are super easy to play around with. You can even sport your best pair of jeans with a bodysuit or tank top to outline your body’s best features.

Accessorise to maximise!

If you feel like levelling up your game, you don’t have to go too far to make it happen. In fact, the best way to maximise comfort is to add details in small amounts. Keep things light and natural, especially when it comes to accessories—and no, we don’t just mean fine pieces of jewellery.
Accessories can range from subtle hair clips to funky sunnies. A little goes a long way, even with the tiniest of details. If you want to keep things simple, play around with scarves or choose a cute purse to carry around your essentials. With just the right amount, you’re well on your way to impressing your new beau!

When in doubt, wear what you hear.

In simpler words, choose colours or outfits that reap the most compliments! What about that dress you wore to the office one day that your colleagues loved on you? Or perhaps, the colour that goes well with your skin tone?
It doesn’t hurt to redo an outfit you’ve worn before, especially when it caught the attention of those around you. There are many ways you can revamp a go-to ensemble but the bottom line is: if the outfit was a hit, it will still be a hit.
For Night Dates
The evening is young and ready to be seized! Night dates are often more intimate and formal than their day counterparts. This means that you might want to take things up a notch if your date has you booked for a romantic evening. Here are a few helpful outfit tips for a night to remember:
Dress to impress, not to overwhelm.

Every date is one for the books and even if you’ve gone through dozens of them, it’s hard to avoid wanting to stand out from the rest. Night dates often entail reservations in fancy restaurants or a little more privacy with your ‘one and only’ and that’s just a few among other reasons to show off a little more than you normally would.
Bring out your best form-fitting dress in your wardrobe and strap in your show-stopping heels! If you’re worried about going overboard with your outfit, tone down the look by opting for subtler jewellery or going monochrome. Balance it all out with light to medium makeup, just enough to enhance your natural beauty.
Look good and feel good.

While you may be tempted to throw on everything you feel like is an eye-opener, it’s always best to choose an outfit that allows you to eat and breathe. Remember, you’re there to get to know your date. Even if you’ve got an impressive outfit in tow, if you don’t feel comfortable or the slightest bit confident in what you are wearing, things can easily take a turn for the worst.
Confidence is an important factor to nailing any date, especially on your first one. It’s important to develop a unique style that exudes the real you and we all know better than to dress up to be someone else than yourself. Choose a style that you know exudes the best of yourself. Trust us, your date will appreciate it.
If you want to get a head start in the confidence game, KURVE has the perfect set of dresses that not only makes you look good, but feel good too!
