Dating Essentials – What To Wear


It’s time for another instalment of Just Singles – Dating Essentials! Today, fashionista’s Jade and Tara (otherwise known as The Style Rawr) talk about first date fashion…


What you wear for a date says a lot about you, so it’s important to get it right! Online dating site Just Singles recently challenged me to put together an outfit I’d feel comfortable and gorgeous in for a first date, so here it is!

My colour inspiration came from one of my fave movies Purple Rain, lots of black and purple! This outfit is a little bit edgy but still really girly and approachable, with an element of quirky fun, do you like?


The dress is from Ted Baker. It’s a perfect date dress because it’s just suggestively sexy, and everyone looks good in an LBD! The leather accent is a little bit of me thrown in there for good measure 😉

The cute clutch bag is from Chelsea Doll. Basically, if you wanna be my lover, you gotta get with my cat. Best to get that out of the way on any first date I think and this bag would definitely encourage that conversation!

The shoes are KG by Kurt Geiger at ASOS. The colour is just gorgeous and it’s important to make a shoe statement.

I’m accessorising lightly with some yummy statement earrings from A Midnight Wonderland and a rose gold cuff from River Island. Finally, the regal tones follow through to my frosting with a deep purple Urban Decay eyeliner, violet nail polish by Mavala and a chic matte Sleek lipgloss!

I think this outfit would make the right impression on any guy, paving the way for dazzling him with my sparkling wit and Cinderella charm OBVIO 😉

Anyone up for taking me out?
