So the guy you’re feeling asks you out on a date. You’re really excited, a little nervous… and you have absolutely no idea of what to wear. For a first date there are some style rules that are worth mentioning: don’t go too sexy (men like a bit of a challenge, so save the bodycon for the second date); pick something comfortable; and lastly, don’t pile on the makeup — just a bit to enhance your natural beauty.

To help you along I’ve curated three looks for one of that ubiquitous dinner date. This way, while you eat and chat, you can rest assured that he’s diggin’ your chic and sophisticated style.
Look #1: Alice + Olivia dress, Aquazzura boots
Shine bright in a Alice + Olivia red dress and add some edge with Aquazzura boots. Finish it off with a Topshop croc clutch and a matte red lip by NYX.
Look #2: Alice + Olivia top, MICHAEL Michael Kors leggings
Get flirty in an Alice + Olivia peplum top, MICHAEL Michael Kors leggings and Saint Laurent heels. Add a plum mani, nude lip and bronzer to the mix.
Look #3: Mango jumpsuit, Giuseppe Zanotti heels
Try a timeless Mango jumpsuit and leopard Giuseppe Zanotti heels (sale alert!); then pump it up with a cool gold clutch, hoops and a matching red lip and nail for beauty.
