What to wear for a afternoon date?

(27 Posts)

I have been asked out on a date tomorrow dinner time. He is picking me up at 1ish and we are going for something to eat.

Now I have no idea what to wear! What would you wear?

I'm a jeans and high tops kind of girl and if you saw me christening outfit thread you know I need help grin

Leggings and a jumper dress? Jeans, smart jumper and jacket? He obviously likes you in what you wear already so if just dress how you feel comfortable and concentrate in having a nice time :-)

How I feel comfortable is jeans and high tops. Ok for hes taking me to McDonalds though grin

Where are you going to eat?

What shape are you?

Plus its freezing out so that gives an excuse for warmer clothes!

I rather liked your purple dress...

Don't know where I'm going and I'm a hourglass Id say

Fairy No need to take the piss grin

< innocent >

Moi?

Dominatrix outfit sp

Might as well start as you mean to go on grin

Well Fairy and Tantrums thank you for your very helpful comments. I will wear both grin

For an afternoon date, I'd go with skinnies, a printed Tshirt, cardigan and some kind of ballet pump. So casual, but not scruffy smile
Good luck! There'd best be a thread to dissect the date afterwards wink

It might end up on the worst dates thread yet grin

Is it wrong to ask for a background check before the date? grin

I would say skinnies, boots with smallish heels over the top, and maybe a long tight jumper rather than t shirt and cardigan, because a cardigan could hide your hourglass-ness.
But nobody has ever accused me of being fashionable. Maybe just go with the dominatrix idea.

SPsFanjoHasABlingingVajazzle Sat 09-Feb-13 17:52:19

I have skinnies, heeled boots and a jumper!

Thank you all apart from tantrums and fairy grin

I'm freaking the fuck out! Help needed! Shoes I wanted to wear tomorrow I have left at a mates and its not possible to get them. All i have left are high tops, pumps and going out heels sad

DancingInTheMoonlight Sat 09-Feb-13 22:13:06

Going out heels if you can walk in them sober, pumps if not :-)

DancingInTheMoonlight Sat 09-Feb-13 22:13:57

I thought the date was this afternoon?

DancingInTheMoonlight Sat 09-Feb-13 22:14:46

Sorry tomorrow afternoon showing i clearly have had enough wine

SPsFanjoHasABlingingVajazzle Sat 09-Feb-13 22:32:24

I've been in bath and come out all red and blotchy after using Nivea. I will have to put outfit on tonight and just put all my shoes on and stick to the best ones

So close to just cancelling

Don't cancel! I Hink you should wear high t

Argh, sausage fingers..

High tops - I believe in wearing the clothes that really represent you on a date. If he doesn't like it, he isn't worth it anyway!

FairyJen Sun 10-Feb-13 08:09:24

Just a thought sp but I you wear your bondage gear he won't notice your shoes....

Heels will be fine with jeans and nice top don't cancel babe!

SPsFanjoHasABlingingVajazzle Sun 10-Feb-13 09:26:28

Might get my leather cat suit on and go bare foot grin

I think I need to invest in some in-between shoes grin

Good luck SP!
And really, any shoes will be fine- pumps/hightops whatever, the rest of the outfit should dress up/down whichever pair you choose IYSWIM.
Have a great time smile
