Date night is different for everyone. The essentials for each couples date night will obviously vary slightly, but it all depends on what you will be doing and the person that you’re with.
My date night essentials are perfect for me, and I like to think that I’ve perfected what I need to be taking around and about when me and my man hit the town for some quality time.bonding together.
What to Wear
As I’m sure we’re all aware now as modern people of today’s world, everyone should wear whatever the hell they want and feel comfortable doing so. Whether you love to get dressed up or are all about the casual wear, you should never feel pressured to wear anything, especially by your partner or your date.
That being said, I’m a sucker for the traditional and I believe you make at least a little bit of effort when you’re trying to impress a potential partner. These will obviously depend on the activity that you’re partaking in for your date but I will mainly go for these three staple outfits when on date night:
- Slinky, sexy dress
The perfect LBD does exist, you just have to try on about a million different ones before you find it. Slinky dresses are great for meals out, smart parties, afternoon tea, fancy drinks and anything that require a bit of va va voom for a date.
- Trendy bar hopping chic
This is the middle ground between pure casual and totally dressed up. Think shorts and a sparkly top or a skater dress or leggings and a feature shirt.
- Pretty daytime casual
Chances are, you won’t need to pull out pretty daytime casual until around the fourth date in. Men usually like to spend the first few dates drunk or in a dark room so they can feel comfortable around an attractive women such as yourself. But, soon enough, you will find yourself going to the beach, the zoo or any other activity that requires daylight. This is when you pull out the jeans and slinky jumper combo, or a casual skirt and shirt mix up.
Things to Take
You never know what you’re going to need when you go on a date, your handbag essentials are always a must, but there are a few extra things you should pack when heading out on a date, whether it’s with a long term partner or someone completely new.
Always take your mobile phone and a spare charger. You never know when things are going to go south and you may need to make an important phone call to get yourself out of a situation.
I would also always take extra cash and a debit card, you never know what’s going to happen and you may need to suddenyl leave and get yourself home or somewhere else.
Next comes the awkward sex stuff. Always carry condoms. You never know what’s going to happen and if neither of you are prepared, who knows what could happen!
