5 First Date Outfits that Will Give You Butterflies

FabSugar: 5 First Date Outfits for Every Occasion

A first date is one of those typical occurrences that leave you standing in front of your closet, scratching your head. You’ve gotten asked out, and now it’s time to find the perfect outfit – no easy feat, considering you’ve only got one chance to make a first impression, right? We’ve put together five stylish ensembles for various first-date scenarios, so whether you end up at a five-star restaurant or playing a few rounds of pool at your neighborhood dive, you’re sure to look your absolute best. Click through to see (and shop!) each look.

First Date: Movie in the Park
Let’s face it – movies may not be the most original or advantageous of first dates, but they happen (all too often). A great alternative to the ordinary dinner-and-a-movie is seeing a flick being shown in a park. You get to experience the great outdoors, and there’s a much better chance of getting cold and snuggling up to your date. Keep in mind, you’ll be sitting on a blanket, so opt for skinny jeans in a dark wash, a pretty printed tank, and a lightweight sweater, just in case. Pack some snacks in a durable tote, and add a pair of comfy yet superstylish sneakers. Avoid: High heels, skirts, and bringing your nicest, most expensive handbag.

FabSugar: 5 First Date Outfits for Every Occasion
Chloe Striped Ribbed Cashmere Sweater ($1,625), Kain Classic Printed Washed-Silk Tank ($155), Vanessa Bruno Athe Dark Denim Slim Jeans ($175), Isabel Marant Boston Low-Top Sneaker ($685), Alexandra Satine Nimes Tote ($280), Kenneth Jay Lane Geometric Stud Earrings ($44)


First Date: Upscale Eatery
When the date calls for a fancy restaurant, turn things up a notch in a subtly sexy fitted dress and printed envelope clutch. Bold, statement-making earrings will keep his attention, ahem, upward, and a cute, lightweight trench will make for a great reveal. A pair of spiky peep-toe heels does wonders to elongate your legs, but don’t go any higher than you’re comfortable with – the last thing you need is a face-plant on arrival. Avoid: Tights, oversized handbags, and talking about your ex at the table.

FabSugar: 5 First Date Outfits for Every Occasion
Merona Belted Trench Coat ($50), Aldo Lederer Clutch ($42), Issa Flared Ribbed Tank Dress ($600), Zara Studded Ankle Strap ($90), Dannijo Oxidized Brass Plated Maryna Earrings ($320)


Check Out Look of the Day: Style for All Seasons

First Date: Miniature Golfing
Mini golf always makes for a great daytime date: you get to look cute and laid-back, which makes kicking his ass on the course even sweeter. Stay chic and comfortable in a tribal-cool romper, then throw on a neutral pair of flat sandals and a fun straw hat for sun protection. Opt for a leather crossbody bag so you can stay hands-free. Avoid: Too-high heels, tons of bangles, and fussy shoulder bags.

FabSugar: 5 First Date Outfits for Every Occasion
Rag & Bone Straw Fedora ($165), Marc by Marc Jacobs Joanna Crossbody Bag ($285), ASOS Frisk Leather Stud Sandals ($27, originally $33), Topshop Semi Precious Stone Ring Set ($28), Sandro Pantagonie Printed Crepe Playsuit ($320)


First Date: Art Show
Nothing says downtown polish like a slick leather skirt – and if you’re headed to an art show on your date, you’ll want to look put-together but with a bit of an edge. A wispy-thin top would look great tucked in or out, and the twist front on this tee lends a bit of sex appeal. Keep your accessories simple, with a pretty statement choker and shoulder bag. Art shows usually mean free booze, so choose a menswear-chic loafer instead of heels – it’ll look much more laid-back and confident. Avoid: Leather jackets, stilettos, and overdoing the bubbly.

FabSugar: 5 First Date Outfits for Every Occasion
Holst + Lee Short Colorblock Necklace ($220), Holy Tee Twist-Front T-Shirt ($125), Reiss Carrie Quilted Shoulder Bag ($340), Forever 21 Faux Suede Loafers ($23), Paul & Joe Sister Cartell Leather Mini Skirt ($485)


First Date: Dive Bar

So you’re heading to a dimly lit bar to shoot some pool, play some darts, and put another song on the jukebox (baby). You want to look low-maintenance and fun, not super girlie and overdone. Show your feminine side with a pair of fitted wide-leg jeans and a bright semisheer tank, then add a tougher edge with a black leather jacket and architectural wedge booties. Avoid: Miniskirts, cleavage, and not knowing the difference between Buffalo Springfield and Dusty Springfield.

FabSugar: 5 First Date Outfits for Every Occasion

AllSaints Rally Leather Biker Jacket ($650), 7 For All Mankind Dazzling Skinny Flared Jeans ($206, originally $295), Rag & Bone Audry Top ($255), Rebecca Minkoff Lunch Money Pouch ($55), Loeffler Randall Lily Wedge Bootie ($425), Shourouk Baraka Rococo Bracelet ($309)

    My favorites are a toss up between looks 1, 2 & 4. The one outfit that made me say “”oooh”” was the 4th outfit. I also like the 5th look, but I wouldn’t have done such severe looking wide-legged jeans. In fact, that look is screaming for some skinny jeans, in my opinion. The only outfit I didn’t particuarly care of was the Mini-golf dating outfit. I love the idea, but I hate that tribal romper. I can’t tell what material it’s made of, but it looks pretty heavy & itchy. It almost looks like a sheep herder outfit, or something. Maybe it’d look better in person, I don’t know. I like the concept- just not how it was executed here . Love the FabSugar blogs!

    Love the movie in the park look!

    Maybe it’s because I think the art show would be the best date, but I like look 4 the most! Although, all of these looks would be fun and flirty for a first date.

    Definitely love the movie in the park outfit! I really like how its cute and comfy and still has that femine edge to it. Also LOVE the idea of doing movie in the park for a first date!! 2nd fave outfit is the art show!

  • Beej Rockensockem

    Ha ha ha. You know, as much as I love the looks that are put together here, the first one alone is close to three thousand dollars alone.

    Sure, great inspiration. But thanks for the inferiority complex as well. If you can actually afford a pair of shoes for over fifteen hundred dollars, you live a life that is hurting other people, no argument. Look at how wasteful that is.

    You can act as demure, and polite as you want – putting those shoes on here is the snobbiest thing you could do.

  • Kelly Burt

    These are all so adorable! I love the upscale eatery and the art show outfits! The movie in the park is great too.
