Whether you have first date jitters or first Valentine’s Day together nerves, we’re here to help you decide on your V-Day wardrobe to ensure you feel the lurve.

 

Our top tips for dressing for a date:

·         When in doubt, underdress rather than overdress. You’ll always be comfortable in jeans and a slinky camisole, but might not be relaxed in a form-fitting cocktail dress.

·         Black and white or all-black is easy and always looks polished. Pop your look with matching cuffs, a bright lip or statement handbag.

·         Comfortable shoes are a non-negotiable. Block heels or sneakers are always a win.

·         If you don’t have a go-to date night uniform then let the venue or date lead your outfit.

 

Here are our top dates (and outfits) per city.

 

Jozi

The date: Cocktails and tapas

The vibe: Sleek and sexy

The venue: Sin and Taxes for artisanal cocktails, followed by Urbanologi for bespoke tapas.

The look: Trade in your classic button down for a cold shoulder tunic – the perfect piece to update your work appropriate pencil skirt. The final touches: layered long-length necklaces or a choker and structured clutch.

 

Cape Town

The date: Wine bar and Italian

The vibe: Hip, but polished

The venue: Wine tasting at Open Wine, followed by a bistro dinner at Villa 47.

The look: A relaxed wine date translates to a slip dress with block heels. Date more casual? Opt for a chambray version. Finish the look with a draped necklace or tassel earrings and a metallic clutch.


Durban

The date: Dinner and jazz

The vibe: Well put together

The venue: A relaxed pasta for two at The Glenwood Restaurant followed by the Chairman for live jazz.

The look: Double denim is the perfect combination of dressed down and on trend without trying too hard. Ensure the denim of your shirt and jeans don’t match and step it up with a pair of dressy heels and sparkly clutch. If you’re a details person then add an understated necklace and watch.
