3 Date Night Outfits Your Guy Will Love
The first several dates are rather crucial for any new relationship. First impressions are important when meeting someone for the first time not to mention the thought process that goes into preparing a lasting impression for dates 2,3,4 etc.. Not sure what outfit will send the right the message on that first date or how to top your first impression on the second date? What about a causal daytime date or meeting his friends and family for the first time?  Underneath all the pre-date excitement is one anxiety-inducing thought: What am I going to wear?  But worry not! We asked our image consultants and New York personal shopping experts for advice on how to enhance your appearance so you have outfits suitable for every dating occasion sure to come your way! Just borrow inspiration from our New York image consultants and you will have several charming and sexy date-night outfits that are a sure fire way to knock his socks off!

First Date: The most common first date is agreeing to have drinks in the evening or an after work drink encounter. This helps to relax both parties enabling them to feel a level of comfort or ease.  Let’s face it, first dates can be rather nerve racking and anxiety induced… and sometimes a cocktail can ease your nerves and give you an extra boost of confidence.  For a first date, you really want to select an outfit that is feminine, flirty and fun.  You never want to overdo it but you certainly want to highlight your assets in a classy way.  A dress is a great garment for the first date because it is feminine and will highlight your legs. You can also pair a comfortable  heel to your attire which is a sure fire way to highlight your back side!  Our New York image consultants recommend a dress for the first date because it also helps to elongate your body by creating the illusion of longer legs especially when paired with a sexy pair of heels.

When selecting a dress for your first date, make sure it is appropriate for the occasion.  If you are going to a local casual venue, you are not going to wear a little black cocktail dress.  So make sure to look up the venue online to see what the ambiance is like!  Our New York personal shoppers recommend the following stores for great first date dress options: Intermix (flirty and stylish), White House Black Market (sexy and simply), and Bar 111 (affordable, flirty and stylish). Our New York Image consultants also suggest dressing too provocatively is something to avoid. Don't be afraid to show off your shape, just not in a very low-cut or bondage look.  Think "classy" not "assy"!  Be sure to read out guide on  how to find the perfect little black dress as well for additional tips.

If agreeing to meet your stud after work for a cocktail, then you will need to plan your outfit ahead of time.  A great outfit combination for the office and after office date is a pencil skirt paired with a feminine light weight blouse or a fitted blazer with a feminine colored cami underneath.  A pencil skirt will show off your lower assets in a tasteful way and when arriving to meet your date, you can lose the blazer for a more relaxed look. If you are meeting your guy after work, chances are he will also be in business attire so don’t worry about looking conservative.  Be sure to add in a signature necklace that frames your neckline and highlights your eye color.  This will help him focus on your face.

Second Date: So you’ve agreed to see each other again and this time you heading out for a dinner date, party of two. Second date attire should be fun, flirty and include a bit of your own individual personal style.  If you wore black the first date, avoid wearing black on the second date and opt for some seasonal color.  Our New York image consultants all agree that men respond better to color.  Try paring separates together for a confident look that is organized and classy!  Start with a pair of black shorts and black heels; this is your base to build around.  You can incorporate a striped tee or a feminine blouse in a color that compliments your skin tones.  Pair it off with a ¾ sleeve blazer in a neutral color or a pastel shade. A boyfriend blazer or cropped style is your best bet and choose depending on your body structure. Tuck your blouse into the shorts and compliment your waist line with a skinny belt.  Be sure to add in some light jewelry and avoid the chunky rings especially when they outweigh the size of your hands.  Our New York personal stylists recommend shopping for separates at: Zara, BCBG or Club Monaco.  Your local department store is also a great place to shop for seperates from different brands and will offer more of a variety.

Third Date:  Now is the time you can pull out you favorite LBD (little black dress). Make sure that your dress hugs you in all the right areas and works to downplay any problem areas. The third date can  land you at dinner and a show or something stimulating like live music or a play.  Our fashion consultants all agree that you need to dress for the occasion.  Add a personal touch to your LBD by incorporating a colorful pair of heels or pumps.  You can also choose a fashion necklace that is equally colorful and highlights your eyes. My Image Experts New York image consultants tend to believe that a hand clutch is a better alternative to an over-sized hand bag.  You can also go for a white or neutral leather cross body bag with silver chain.  This will help break up the black and add in some additional color.

If the third date is something casual then opt for a pair of skinny jeans and feminine sleeveless blouse or a cute skirt and sandals.  Just keep the theme feminine, flirty and fun.  New York personal shoppers believe that flat sandals or espadrilles are a great shoe choice for a casual date.  If you want some additional height or are going to be walking around a lot, sandals are the best way to go in the warmer months.  You can also choose to wear a casual cotton dress for a casual third date.  Our personal shoppers recommend checking out White house Black Market or Rachel Roy for the perfect LBD.  For a more casual approach check out BCBG for a t-shirt dress.

When dating or pursuing a relationship, our image consultants, personal shoppers and fashion consultants all recommend choosing a dress instead of pants or jeans.  A dress is much more feminine approach to creating a soft and appropriate appearance. It requires less consideration than mixing and matching tops and bottoms but implies more of an effort on behalf of your personal image.  In New York, our fashion consultants like to teach individuals how to find the perfect dress style for your individual body type.  Not everyone can wear the same dress and it’s important to know what styles flatter your figure and what colors look the best against your skin stones.  If you would like to find out what to wear, our fashion consultants can provide you with a body structure analysis and color analysis that allow you to recognize the best styles, brands and colors.  If you are interested in an image consultation or personal shopping session, please contact one of our New York fashion consultants or image consultants for more information.
