Style Inspiration: What to Wear on a Blind Date
By Claire

Sam says, “Please help me! I am going on a blind date next week and I am clueless as to what I should wear. My blind date and I will be meeting up at a local bar with some friends. I want to stand out and look sexy without going over the top. Any wardrobe suggestions?”
Hey Sam! I’d say that for a blind date, you should wear a mixture of casual and dressy items, showing you’re cool and collected with fun jeans and a blazer, yet demonstrating your sexy side with heels and a well picked top. The rule of thumb with a blind date is to not go overboard with your outfit: never reveal too much (deep v’s and high hems are a no-no) and don’t go for wild or zany (stash your silver sequined jacket for date three). In case your first encounter is awkward, wear a few subtle conversation pieces like a statement necklace or a funky ring–they may encourage dialogue during a lull. 
Play the rest of your look down so your date can focus on you:

If it’s hot in your neck of the woods, leave the blazer at home.

    I think this outfit is too out there for a blind date.Its screams ATTENTION esp the shoes and the inscription on that tank top..I However , love the color combination, totally awesome

  3. Layla says:

    I think the shoe is fun. It seems bright, but worn with the outfit, it’d be a nice little accent. And the inscription on the tank is funny…

    I like it. I would rock it on the date. :)

  5. Kimmoy says:

    I like it too, think it’s memorable and the shoes/accessories would make great conversation pieces with her friends and perhaps the blind date.

    I like this outfit combination. No more blind dates for me, but I think the outfit speaks confidence and that’s important. Also love the addition of the highlighter shoe.

    Thank you soo much! Great Advise. I will definitely be following this tips!!

  9. Claire says:

    The top is a bit tongue in cheek (I was trying to be a bit humorous)…you can substitute with any other white tank or choose from one of the other options above.
