Ah, the first date debate. How do you choose the perfect outfit that says all the right things at the same time?
You want to go for a look that's understated, but not too plain. Something that's sexy, but still has class. There's a fine line to walk when choosing the best first date outfit, but just remember that a little restraint goes a long way.
One of the best places to start is with romantic jewelry - then build the rest of your outfit around that. Here are some of the perfect pieces for a first date:
It's no secret that dating in today's world can be a daunting prospect. Your first date is undoubtedly the most important as it's your chance to make and leave the best first impression you can.
What you choose to wear, in terms of clothes and jewelry says so much about you. More so than you may realize. Jewelry is an accessory that can convey a number of specific messages.
Garish, tacky, and in-your-face jewelry may convey the wrong message. Whereas too little jewelry or none at all could also portray the wrong thing. Your best bet is to meet somewhere in the middle, and if you're still in doubt, keep in mind that ''less is more'' always applies when it comes to first date jewelry.
Here are a few jewelry choosing tips to keep in mind:
Finally, remember that if you choose an outfit and jewelry pieces that don't suit your personality, your date will be able to pick up on this.
Ultimately, this could translate to you feeling uncomfortable, which will have a negative effect on your overall mood and energy.
Now that you are armed with a few pro tips on how to choose your first datejewelry, here is a little more inspiration on pieces to choose from:
You really can't go wrong when pairing a beautiful, elegant necklace with your first date outfit.
Go for something striking, yet understated. A simple pendant necklace in gold or silver is perfect. Otherwise, dainty, layered gold chains are also a sexy yet mature adornment.
If you prefer to keep your jewelry simple, a great way to up the ante with your first date outfit is with a chic designer-look watch. A high-quality watch oozes sophistication, and it's an accessory that your date is sure to notice.
Go for something striking, yet simple. Rose gold and leather is a beautiful combination, otherwise plain gold or silver is timelessly classic.
Stud earrings are another timeless jewelry addition to your first date attire. But if you're going for diamonds or pearls, try to keep it low-key. Anything that is oversized or a little too sparkly can translate to gaudy.
Simple diamond or pearl studs are a great way to draw attention to your face and eyes. They are also feminine and elegant - which says all the right things about you from the get-go.
The humble hoop earring should be a firm staple in your jewelry collection as they are super versatile and go with nearly any outfit.
Simple gold (or silver) hoop earrings are the perfect addition to a first outfit as they draw just enough attention to the face and shoulders.
If you want your date to notice slender, elegant wrists and hands, then a simple gold bracelet is the best addition to your first date attire.
Go for a single gold band if you aren't a fan of stacking bracelets and distracting the conversation with your jingles! Otherwise, chainlink, rope, and woven metal bracelets are also chic, yet eyecatching.
Ring stacking is all the rage at the moment- but remember the sentiment ''less is more''? If you're a fan of this trend, stick to small, dainty rings that are easily stackable and don't detract your date's attention.
As previously mentioned, there's a fine line between wearing statement jewelry that says that right thing and statement jewelry that's just distracting.
Some things to avoid when choosing your first date jewelry include:
By choosing the right type of jewelry that truly befits who you are will ultimately translate the right message. And your date will be able to pick up on this. Comfort is key, but don't forgo style either!
