If you are going out for a drink, pair a silky blouse with a mini skirt, you can also personality with accessories, remember being natural and minimal is always best for the first date. If your first date is going to be a dinner date, it’s crucial not to wear anything that you can’t walk in, eat in or even breathe in.
