What to wear on a first date? 10 looks to try from Coffee date to Movie date! Plus read the juice on online dating.


Did you know that Australia is a nation of uniform lovers? Yup! In fact, 82 per cent of Aussies would consider entering into a relationship with a man or woman in uniform. If you just can’t help but love guys in uniforms yourself, why not check out newly launched dating site Uniformdating.com.


Once you have snagged yourself a uniformed hottie on Uniformdating.com, it’s time to work out the first date outfit. You want to make a good impression but not look like you’re trying too hard either.

Here are a few things to consider to minimise first date outfit jitters:

  • Is there a dress code? (If you’re going to a dinner or an event)
  • Will I be comfortable in those shoes?
  • Will I need better deodorant? (for nature dates or long periods in the sun)
  • Would a ponytail be a better hairstyle option? (for nature dates or if you’re out in a windy area)
  • Will my makeup last? (For dates that might include water)
  • Most importantly, remember to be yourself and to wear something that you will feel comfortable and confident in


What to wear on a first date? To give you some outfit inspiration check out these 10 looks you can try from a coffee to a movie date put together by fashion blogger Adriana Gastelum.

1. Coffee Date

It’s a casual thing so keep your ensemble chic but relaxed. You wouldn’t want to wear a cocktail dress to Starbucks. Arm candy is great for when you hold that cup.

Adriana Gastélum - Sheinside Denim Shorts, Ivanka Trump Heeled Strappy Sandals - Short shorts

Try wearing this on your first date at the coffee place.


2. Markets Date

Markets are awesome as you can get to know him while in a relaxed setting. Wear something comfy and keep your hair in a low ponytail for the breezy outdoors. Sunnies will keep you from squinting.

Adriana Gastélum - Oasap Sunnies, Zara Cropped Studio Top, Windsor Ethnic Print Wide Trousers, 3.1 Phillip Lim Neoprene Clutch - Bugambilias

Having your first date at the markets? Try this chic do.


3. Park Date

A billowing top is perfect for the park and jeans let you sit on the ground without having a wardrobe malfunction or an unintended peek-a-boo. Blue denim works well if you’re worried about getting stains.

Adriana Gastélum - Vateno Silky Oriental Blouse, Salsa Jeans White, Julia Pamplona Raspberry Bag, Oasap Heels - Oriental

Park dates call for a relaxed look.


4. Movie Date

Keep your arms covered as you wouldn’t want to be shivering in the cinema. Balance that off with a skirt and sexy pointy heels.

Adriana Gastélum - Savous Sunnies, Sheinside Pearl Embellished Knit, Sheinside Origami Skort, 3.1 Phillip Lim Medium Pashli Satchel, Steve Madden Nude Pumps - The origami skort

Black and gold is classy and chic for night time dates.


5. Shopping Date

Okay, we’re not sure which sane man will go shopping with you (jokes!) but if you indeed have found him, this outfit is perfect. A textured skirt makes a nice fashion statement and a crop top just balances the look off.

Adriana Gastélum - Zara Cropped Top, Asos Laser Cut Skirt, 3.1 Phillip Lim Pashli Satchel, Windsor Heels - NYFW: Day 1

Pencil skirts are fabulous as they make your legs look longer.


6. Breakfast Date

This is supposed to be your out-of-bed look so keep it simple and fresh. Pick a scent that is soft and fruity floral.

Adriana Gastélum - Guess? Sandals, Check Out The Blog To Know What I'm Wearing - The most flattering top

Breakfast for a first date? Keep it simple.



7. Nature Date

Planning to have long walks in the gardens for your first date? Or a stroll by the lake? Then flats or sandals will help you do that comfortably.

Adriana Gastélum - Vateno Oriental Blouse, Zara Floral Skirt, Julia Pamplona Raspberry Bag - NY: Day 2

Don’t forget sunscreen even if it’s a date.


8. Party Date

A two piece looks fabulous and perhaps less intense than a one piece bodycon that might send out the wrong message. This look is sexy but not in a sleazy way.

Adriana Gastélum - Topshop Crop Top, Chic Wish Faux Leather Skirt, Proenza Schouler Ps11 Classic, Windsor Lace Up Sandals - Once more in black

Here’s a great look for a party date.


9. Fancy Restaurant Date

Instead of the usual LBD, a girly dress and a sparkly clutch might keep his eyes on you all night. Remember to spritz on your favourite scent.

Adriana Gastélum - Windsor Chiffon Dress, Windsor Sequined Clutch, Windsor Caged Rhinestone Heels - Red

In this dress, you can really eat on your first date!


10.  After Work Drinks Date

Take that jacket off and it’s time to see your date. Remember to freshen up yourself if you didn’t get the chance to go home and change. Desperate measures: Wipe down your arms and neckline as well as legs with baby wipes before moisturising.

Adriana Gastélum - Target Wrap Skirt, Windsor Lace Up Sandals - Expected heat

Always keep a box of accessories at work in case of emergencies like a date!

Are you looking for love in uniform?

Well, you’re not alone. According to an independent national survey* conducted for Uniformdating.com, a bespoke online dating service freshly launched in Australia, Sydney locals love a man with a stethoscope, with more than a quarter favouring doctors. Melburnians love a lady in blue with one in six saying their favourite uniformed professional is a policewoman. And almost a quarter of Brisbanites have their heads in the clouds, with air stewardesses uniform ranking as their favourite women in uniform.

Is going online the right way to do it? Uniformdating.com’s survey also found that more than half of Brisbanites think online dating is a successful way to meet potential partners, with two thirds interested in a dating site that meets their individual needs.
