Don’t know what to wear for that first date coming up with your spring fling? Been there. No one wants to do too much or too little with their first date outfit. Men have the tendency to be a little afraid of daring fashion statements, but this doesn’t mean you should put your style on hold. The most effortless and generally “safe” way to express your personal style on a date is through those accessories!  Skip the over-sized floppy hat and pretentious sunshades and stick to the essentials, the things you actually need: you, your beautiful soul and your basic accessories.

Funky Handbag

How to Accessorize your Spring Date Outfit

It’s common nightlife-knowledge that the lighter you pack the better time you’ll have. Don’t weigh yourself down with that giant tote bag you could probably fit your house into if you tried. You are most free when you have no baggage, but a purse to hold onto is perfect for those awkward first date moments where we just need a crutch or in this case a ” clutch.” Grab the sassiest clutch from the back of your closet, because you finally have a reason to wear it sister!

Killer Shoes

Killer shoes

Killer shoes don’t have to kill you. You are only as strongest as your strongest pair of shoes. I know it’s tempting to put on your feistiest 5 inch heels, but resist the urge. Men appreciate heels, but they also appreciate not having to carry you to your car at the end at the night because you have a blister. Face it; everything is a little more annoying when your feet hurt, so don’t set yourself up. Go comfortable! Find a modest pair of heels that slightly elongates your legs and keeps you feminine but doesn’t throw you into bambi-survival mode.

P.S. If you aren’t a heel girl, don’t pretend to be.

Him: “Are those pink flip-flops on your ear?”

You: “Why yes, yes they are. I love flip flops because I used to wear them to Bright Beach as a kid .. blah blah blah.”

Look at that, you’re a natural. Understated jewelry that makes a big statement like these pink abalone earrings can open up a world of conversation. Get creative with your jewelry and make them match you as a person. The possibilities are endless.
