With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, we thought it timely to deliver you some inspiration for what to wear on a first date. There are often a mind-boggling array of options that face a first date – ‘will I be too dressy’, ‘will I be underdressed?’, how can I strike that all important balance of looking effortless without an extreme amount of effort. I’ve sourced the best value, most gorgeous pieces from some key West End boutiques to help aid you in your plight this weekend…

The Perfect Picnic (pick me!) West End Magazine If you’re picnic-ing with your new beau, you likely don’t want to try and be casually sprawled on a blanket while worrying about keeping your legs crossed! Your options here are shorts/pants or a playsuit (like this stunning romper from Don’t Tell Boutique on Boundary Street). ‘White’ screams elegance and class and it look oh SO innocent – the perfect scene setter for your first date.

Price: $169

From: Don’t Tell Boutique, Boundary St.


Off to the movies West End Magazine Keep it casual if you’re off to a movie screening with your new pal – shorts and a cute top is always kosher. We’ve sourced a really cute little package from Verge Girl perfect for the occasion.

Price:  Top = $55, Shorts = $50

From: Verge Girl, Boundary St, West End


Dinner Date West End Magazine This Elliatt number is a total head turner. What’s great about this look is that it doesn’t look overdone and it can be dressed up with heels or toned down with sandals to suit your first date venue.

Price: $67.50

From: 360 Degrees, Boundary St, West End.

Happy Valentine’s Day, 4101’ers
