Dating in New York sucks, in fact it doesn’t just suck. It’s the worst. We’ve all met guys in bars who turn out to be hideous and thus have had to resort to blind dates set up by friends or even making an OkCupid account. We’ve been there. And to add to the stress of the whole situation it’s always hard to know what to wear. Casual, dressy, girlie, edgy. We decided to pull together our favorite date looks for you! Samira from Finland was kind enough to model our looks for us! Happy Sunday and we hope one of them works out for you!

My number one rule for going out on dates is never to be too casual, you never know where the night is going to take you! My look for Samira is fun, girlie and a little bit edgy. An outfit than can progress from drinks at a wine bar to a dance party at the Blind Barbour. The over the knee boots and flirty dress are super sexy worn together and I edged it up with a soft and sleek fur gilet and the ultimate accessory any girl can own, a Balmain belt.
“Give a girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the world”
Now this one is taking the most of my time to put together but first/blind date always does that to me anyway. Lately, I’m kinda into a masculine style and I hardly wear dress or skirt. So I give Samira a disco pants and a white flow-ey top that would look both casual and semi-hot together. I don’t really want to go over the top for the first time. The plaid blazer will tone down the sleekness of the look and give a little bit of a cool retro vibe, which I love to put here and there. I add the Alexander Wang bucket bag to give her little edge. Then throw in black Hermes heels (which is surprisingly comfy, you can dance all night with that!) and let her long wavy hair goes naturally messy to keep it simple, like “oh! I didn’t even put any effort into this look at all” kinda simple.
“Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication”
For a first date always remember not to look overdressed. Your style has to be simple yet polished, without looking like you’ve tried so hard to be hot. Samira is wearing skinny leather pants, giving her a sexy and feminine silhouette. Including some wedge sneakers and an oversized glitter top to the outfit breaks the sexiness brought by the leather pants and gives Samira an edgy feel. The studded headband adds a girly touch to the look and accessorizes perfectly Samira’s long poney-tail. The Balenciaga bag constitutes the ultimate rock & roll piece of the outfit, achieving the exquisite combination of femininity, edginess and sophistication.
