There's one big question that every woman struggles with at some point in her life: What is the best thing to wear on a first date? Should you go classic and just stick with a little black dress? Perhaps it's more of a bold frock here's who I really am type of situation. Maybe, just maybe, you don't want to wear a dress at all and would be much more comfortable wearing a pair of jeans.

Style Notes: Look, not everyone wants to go for the short skirt option, but there are ways of feeling date-ready without showing off your pins. Try an off-the-shoulder top and your favourite pair of jeans. This outfit is a guaranteed confidence-booster.
Style Notes: The wrap dress is a classic for a reason: It is universally flattering. Not only that, it comes in various different lengths and shapes, so it means that you don't have to show off skin if you don't want to. A simple cinching of the waist is all you need to look super feminine.
Style Notes: The miniskirt made a big comeback last year; you need only see the multitude of bold patent black skirts on the market right now to know that. Pair with pretty flats and a loose blouse to ensure you don't feel too self-conscious.
Style Notes: Sure, a slip dress is great for holiday but a first date? It might feel like you're trying too hard. However, there's a way to elevate the frock du jour so it's as chic as possible—just add high top Converse and a roll-neck.
