Whether you’re stepping out for some fine dining or heading to the movies, deciding what to wear on a date is always tricky. You want to make an effort while not overdoing it.
While you may not be dressing to impress after 20 years of marriage, you would still want to make an effort. And for those in the beginning stages of a budding romance or going on a first date (eek!), you’ll want to make a good impression.
The key to looking and feeling fabulous on a date? Wear something comfortable! Restrictive clothing is never ideal. You want to be brimming with confidence, not tugging at your top. Scroll down for our ideas on what to wear…
DATE: GOING TO THE CINEMA
Pair your chic look with a statement lip. Red has the power of making us feel confident and in control!
We love: Smashbox Always on Liquid Lipstick in Bawse, R310; Hannon Eternal Red Lipstick, R150; and L’Oreal Color Riche Extraordinaire Liquid Lipstick Ruby opera, R189,95
DATE: HEADING OUT FOR DINNER
Take it to the next level with a really grown-up take on glitter. Just apply to the edge of the eyelid, next to your lashes, and layer up with darker greys and blacks for a subtle but stunning look.
We love: Maybelline Colorshow Eyeshadow in Copper Fizz, R74,95; Bobbi Brown Sparkle Eye Shadow in Mica, R460; and Inglot AMC Pure Pigment Eye Shadow in 24, R299.
DATE: FANCY A COCKTAIL EVENING
Falsies are a great way to exaggerate your lashes and add focus to your eyes.
We love: Clicks Face Eyelashes Dramatic, R44,95; Eylure Volume No 101 Light Weight Lashes, R54,95; and UBU True Or False False Eyelashes, R84,95.
DATE: DAY OUT AT THE MARKET
Nothing shows youth more than a glowing complexion. Make your skin looked nourished and healthy, with a simply sweep of highlighter.
We love: The Body Shop Honey Bronze Highlighting Dome 01 Golden, R195; Catrice High Glow Mineral Highlighting Powder, R104.95; and Benefit High Beam, R365.
