FASHION TRENDS / Sep 16, 2021


First dates are special. For all you know, you could be meeting someone that you'll spend the rest of your life with!

So you probably want to make a good first impression. You want to make sure your hair is washed and clean. You want your breath to be minty-fresh. And you want to rock a sexy outfit.

If you're looking for some first date outfit ideas, you've come to the right place. We've got four first date dresses that show off just the right amount of sexy. Wearing one of these, you'll not just make a good first impression—you'll make a lasting one.

1. Sequin bodycon dress

On a first date, we want to make a statement.

If your first date is a night in town, a sequin bodycon dress would be perfect. Think concerts, shows, bars, lounges, and more.

Here's why we love this outfit: first, bodycon dresses are the go-to silhouette for a sexy date night outfit. It shows off all your beautiful curves.

A short length will also let you show a little leg. Add some pumps to your look, and you'll have legs for days!

But hey, being sexy isn't all about looks. Sequins suggest that you love to have a good time. A fun, vibrant personality will win anyone over.

Don't take your hair and makeup too seriously, either. Add some volume to your hair and a bright eye or lip to keep all eyes on you!

2. Two-piece dress

Perhaps your first date doesn't entail rockin' at a concert or sippin' cocktails at a lounge. Instead, maybe you're meeting up during the day to sit on a swanky patio and nibble on tapas. That's okay—we have the perfect first date outfit for you too.

A two-piece dress adds just the right amount of spice to a daytime first date.

Its peek-a-boo waistline is just the silhouette to catch your date's attention, yet it's still modest enough for a lunch date or an afternoon garden party.

Some embroidery outlining the dress' silhouette is another subtle way to draw the gaze to your hourglass figure.

3. Corset short dress

Dinner and drinks are classic first date ideas. If that's what you're doing, then opt for a bodycon dress with a corset bodice.

Corsets are classically sexy. When combined with lace, glitter, and mesh, it's even sexier!

Yes, corsets are tight—but not like in those Victorian movies. For these dresses, it's mostly for show. Make sure to adjust the back, so it's comfortable!

The back of the dress is stunning, so show it off! Throw your hair up in a high ponytail or bun. That'll also show off your beautiful facial features.

To balance out your date night outfit, choose a dress that has a modest neckline. (You know what they say: Business in the front, party in the back.)

4. Flowy dress with halter neckline

Not all first dates require a body-hugging bodycon dress—especially if your first date involves dancing! For dates like those, we recommend going for something that flows at the waistline—so you can really let loose.

Now, a loose silhouette doesn't mean that you can't show off your curves. Find a dress with a halter neckline to crank up the heat. A first date that's sexy and comfortable? Sign us up!

Want to add some personality to your outfit? Pick a dress that has an eye-catching design. Add some sparkly jewel embellishments.

Get your dancing shoes ready and you're all set!
