1. Little Black Dress

The ultimate classic, every woman looks great in a little black dress. You're sure to steal the spotlight when you show up wearing one you feel comfortable in.

2. Clashing Patterns

If you really want to get the attention of your date and everyone around you, wear some clashing patterns. You'll know what works best for you, so we'll leave that up to you to figure out.

3. Patterned Dress

Show off a bit of your personality with a fun patterned dress. Your date will get a feel for you right away.

5. Jeans and a T-Shirt

When in doubt, keep it simple with a jeans and tee combo. We all have a pairing that works for a first date and keeps us feeling comfortable.

6. Monochromatic Outfit
