    So i've got a date , i'm just unsure what to wear! The guy i'm going on a date with lives in a really posh area (knightsbridge to be exact) and we're just going shopping and for a coffee and lunch in a cafe round the corner from him, so i don't want to to look cheap and obviously stand out from the resients but I really don't have a knightsbridge budget either!! What do you think to this outfit:

    http://www.asos.com/ASOS/ASOS-Wrap-D...px?iid=1743720 (this dress in the nude-pink colour)


    This bag: http://www.riverisland.com/Online/wo...ock-bag-612463


    And these shoes:
    http://www.debenhams.com/webapp/wcs/...ots~Flat+shoes

    (i'm 6ft so heels aren't really a first day time date option lol)

    i'm 6ft, size 10 and 34dd if that helps with outfit opinion, I have long dark brown hair. Do you like the outfit? I have a pretty good cleavage in the dress, do you think that's too much as it is a short dress? What would you think if a girl wore this on a date? I''m thinking of having my hair down and straight with winged eyeliner Many thanks *excited *

    From my POV, the colours seem a bit clashy. Like the nude on the dress compared to the colour of the shoes isn't the same, so could look odd.

    And wow, you're six foot :eek: Is the dress not too short?

    I'm 5'9 and a 10 and find the dresses on asos come WAYYYY too short 80% of the time! But that aside I like the dress and the bag but agree that the shoes might not look too good if they're a different shade of nude - bit nude overload maybe?

    It's a nice dress but it looks short on a 5'10'' model, so I think it will be a bit too short if you're 6 foot.
    Also £100 is a lot to spend on an outfit for an afternoon date, the guy obviously asked you on a date because he likes you, so I wouldn't worry too much about an outfit, (I know thats easier said than done).

    For an afternoon date I would go with some slim fit jeans, a nice top and some ballet pump, like the ones you linked. Finish it off with a smart jacket or blazer, it's casual and comfortable but looks smart at the same time.

    Hope this helps

    And good luck!

    Completely agree but I think you should definitely keep the bag - it's really nice

    i think the dress is a little short and dressy for lunch at a cafe, even if the area is posh! think you would look too overdressed for the date in that dress. and wayyyy too much nude! black accessories or a colour would look better with a nude dress.

    id go for a nice day dress with boots, or jeans and a nice top with boots or flats. you can easily look classy on a high-street budget, so dont feel intimidated by the area or locals.

    good luck, hope it goes well!


    edit: i agree with the guy above, the dress is really beautiful though!

    I agree with Ellie_M.

    The OP's suggestions are very sexy and exciting for a guy if a girl comes on a date dressed like that but it will pretty much hand the power to the guy as he will think "this girl fancies me big time". Dressing like Ellie_M makes him think he's got to put a bit more effort in to make sure he impresses.

    You can bring out a short dress if you have a second or third date in a night out environment, to raise the tension a bit. But first date....not sure.

    I really like the shoes, but for just shopping and coffee/lunch in cafe, I think the dress and bag are a little over the top.

    Experiences with ASOS, the dresses that are modeled by 5'10 models, are at a respectable length on me, and I'm 5'5! Pretty sure, the dress will be unflatteringly short :L

    Thanks for the opinions . Weirdly enough i've always found ASOS is far better than new look, dorothy perkins etc for length . Would you class the dress as formal then and not a day dress?

    Hmmm I don't think the different choices go together tbh

    I'd wear a simple dress like.... with a blazer and black pumps

    I don't want to discourage any of this dress discussion, but I'm not sure the guy's attention will be on the clothing per se.

    I would find it a bit odd if I met a girl for lunch and she was wearing evening wear.

    Remember the rule of 10% - to look well-dressed, you only have to dress 10% smarter than everyone else, not 300%.

    Will you not be a bit cold if you're going shopping?

    Also way too much of the same colour, accessories should be black. In my opinion (guy) knee high boots with skinny jeans and a top would be more suitable for daytime.
