First dates are all about making lasting and meaningful impressions. Impress your date and look your best while still staying true to yourself.
First dates are fun but can also be nerve wracking. One of the most stressful parts is figuring out what in the world you might want to wear. First dates are a launching pad for first impressions. Even if you have known the person for a while, the setting and atmosphere of calling it a “date” make room for getting to know one another in a totally different light than before. And while you want to make a good lasting impression, it is also important to remember to stay comfortable!
Your initial date with a person should be stress-free. It should be about comfortably getting to know one another, opening up, and learning about one another. While what you wear on your first date will depend on where your first date happens to be, make sure to be yourself! You don’t want to give off the wrong impression. But at the same time, a first date allows you to reinvent yourself a bit so don’t be afraid to have fun!
If you’re going out for a casual coffee or lunch date, then a glammed up casual outfit will work best. Since the locale is more laid back, you can wear your favorite day-to-day outfit and add some bold accessories to dress it up a little for the occasion. Feel free to dress up a casual v-neck tee with a flowy skirt and a chiffon scarf. You can also wear it with a printed or colored skinny jean, an eye-catching statement necklace and flats. This way, you’ll look great wearing something comfortable that shows off your personal style, and you’ll still look glamorous.
But what if you’re going out to a fancy dinner, or perhaps to a club or some other event? A little black dress goes a long way for just these sorts of occasions. They can be paired with a unique studded clutch or beaded coinpurse along with a full set of cocktail jewelry. You can dress up this look with your accessories and shoes, though try to pick things a little more on the comfier side because you won’t want to divert your attention from your date to your aching feet!
While you may want to pull out all the stops for a first date and use every trick in the book, the most important thing you should remember is to make sure you’re comfortable. Sure, you want to look great, and you totally can! But first dates are about getting to know one another in a more personal setting and you want to be able to devote your attention to your date, not worried that your dress will ride up or that your heels are killing you.

Last night was the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s annual ball for the new costume exhibit Punk: Chaos to Couture. This star-studded event included the likes of Kim Kardashian, Kanye West, Nicole Richie, Jennifere Lawrence, Katy Perry, Beyonce and many more celebrities dressing up in punk inspired ensembles to go along with the focus of this years event. While some celebs didn’t quite make the mark, we thought it would be fun to pair our favorite looks of the night with one of our fabulous Chicastic accessories. Do you agree with some of our top picks? What accessories from our site would you have paired them with?
Miley nailed the punk look for the Met gala last night in this edgy chic Marc Jacobs dress. She exemplifies what the punk era is all about with her fearless spikey hair do and bold red lip. Although she has the look down perfectly, we though a little extra bling wouldn’t hurt the look at all!
Clothing designer and Fashion Star judge Nicole Richie is another celeb who had the right idea last night. She took her hairstyle to the next level by coloring it it grey while rocking an all white gown by Topshop. We thought our Silver Glitter Rhinestone Duster Knuckle Clutch would be a great addition to this dress.
Leave it to music icon and queen of reinvention Madonna to completely immerse her style in to the theme of this event. Her Givenchy ensemble screams punk from the top of her black blunt cut bangs to the bottom of her neon pink pumps. A faux snake skin knuckle duster clutch would be perfect for this look.
Jennifer Lawrence is breath taking in this beautiful Dior gown. She is definitely giving us a punk princess look and successfully executes the perfect mix of punk and couture with a short veil to make it complete. We thought it would be a good idea to add an extra bit of edge to her overall look by pairing it with this faux patent leather snakeskin envelope clutch available now at Chicastic.
Anne Hathaway is another celebrity that surprised us all with a drastic hair change. With her bleach blonde lock, she stuns us all with a beautiful vintage Valentino dress that dates back into the early 1990’s. Pictured with the designer himself, we think he serves as her best accessory and that a simple metallic mini clutch is all she needs while making her way into the ball.
