It’s easy to follow trends. The true fashionistas know that genuine style means breaking trends and creating something completely their own. For date nights this year, we’re aiming for stylish on-trend ensembles that still capture romantic effortlessness while escaping the usual LBD-resort.
Here are some sexy picks for what to wear on a first date –

1. Some blend of powerful and sexy

A jumpsuit, a pantsuit, or a wide-legged pants ensemble in a decided color — like a head-to-toe white, burgundy, or emerald green — and in softly flowing fabrics and cuts — think chiffon than fits and flows along your silhouette — will be just the right mix of power and flirt.


2. White, the Eternal Winner

Let’s move away from the little black dress. Take an unexpected style route this year and opt for a little white dress instead. We’d even go as far as to say it’ll become your new sexy staple item. A slinky little all-white number styled with nude stiletto pumps plus glittering gold jewelry – trust us, you’ll knock his socks off!


3. Florals for the Win

You’d have to be living under a rock not to notice the floral trend. It’s become so popular, floral motifs have moved beyond spring and we’re still seeing it everywhere from the runways to the department stores. Embrace the cheerful flowery aesthetic and give it some charm. How about a sweetly feminine ensemble of a floral maxi dress topped off with an edgy little denim jacket? So even if you don’t receive any actual flowers after your first date, at least you’ll still be wearing them ;)!


4. The Brighter, the Better

Do you have a certain color that always rakes in the compliments whenever you wear it? Whatever it may be, make it your secret weapon for your first date. Brights are always eye catching – think sunny yellows, girly pinks or earthy greens. But if more neutral shades make you feel most desirable, go right ahead. Navy blue makes a classier alternative to monochrome black, while nudes of your skin color have the alluring effect of acting as a second skin – oh so sexy! Of course, if you’re looking for that sultry finishing touch, a swipe of sexy red lipstick can do wonders.

Happy styling!
