My last date was six years ago at an Italian restaurant with a funny guy who was hot hand tattoo and dimples. my favorite outfit? A chiffon swing dress and high heels made me cringe. Looking back on this outfit makes me laugh. Instead of leaning into my personal style – say, platform sneakers And maxi dresses – I was more interested in achieving the old school “first date look”, alluring and polished.

Short black dress
“I recently went on a first date after coming out of a five and a half year relationship with my ex-fiancé and I no idea what to wear. I was younger wearing something that made me feel sexy albeit uncomfortable. But older than me wants to feel attractive And comfortable. With the help of my best friend, I picked out a low-cut black dress and my signature shoes Onitsuka Tiger sneakers. I paired it with minimal makeup and it felt so effortlessly chic. It was the way I like to dress in everyday life, date or not date, that made it easier to be myself when I had a hard time remembering how to date in the first place.”

Nice jeans and blouse
“I wear a signature outfit to all my first dates: an emerald green long-sleeved shirt, straight-leg jeans, Supergas.

And a repeat outfit works because the people you meet don’t know you wore it on the other three dates before them! “

The collections are comfortable enough for lounging around the house, and you can always add accent pieces, like embroidered bag or bold collars.
