A first date always has a special meaning for girls and they go all out to look the best for the person of their dreams. When it comes to impressing that someone special in your life, you simply have to wear what suits you the most. And nothing compares to ethnic wear in terms of comfort, elegance, style, chic and adding that extra something to your personality. They are easily accessorized thereby helping you to accentuate your looks and personality as a whole.

But the most important thing to do is to pick out the right type of dress so that it flatters your figure. Both a salwar suit and a saree score in this aspect. While a salwar suit is comfortable and easy to carry off, a saree, even though it makes you look gorgeous, can become a hassle if you are not used to wearing one. Of course, there is one underlying aspect which remains constant in your choice of dress as your first date evening wear. It should minimise your faults while at the same time highlight your beauty making you look perfect.

The colour choice also has a role to play. Choosing the right colours enable you to bring about a harmony between your personality and your style of dressing. In fact, if you want to go all out and knock the breath out of your boyfriend, you will have to wear shades of red, maroon or purple to look alluring and enticing. Soft colours like the different shades of white, peach, lilac, lavender, green or even blue and pink help you to maximise the total effect of your persona by making you look charmingly demure and modest. These shades also enable your special someone to get a glimpse of the naughtiness lurking not far from the surface thereby enhancing the appeal of your looks.

Choosing ethnic wear as your first date evening wear has other benefits too. It helps you attain the girl next door look making your special guy feel confident enough to take you to meet his mother. Also, it conceals more than it reveals keeping the mystery of your persona intact. While a saree does give a hint of your beautiful curves, it also helps to keep your boyfriend guessing as to what lies within. The mystery remains intact making your special date go weak in his knees.

A salwar suit tends to give you more options to play with. You can look shy and timid to make him want to protect you with his life or you can subtly unleash your sensuality to ensure he keeps wanting for more.

These days, a lot of fusion wear is in trend. Kurtis have given ethnic fashion a whole new direction. Even designers have experimented a lot of kurti and its designs. From short ones to long kurtis, women have been spotted wearing them in unique styles altogether.

While it’s mostly leggings that women pair kurti with, palazzos are yet another additions that will make you look stylish and chic as ever. Since it’s the first date, you might not want to keep it heavy on accessories and makeup. When looking for accessories, make sure you don’t over-do any of it; you can easily complete the look with earrings or bangles.

Either way, ethnic wear lets you play with so many different options that you will be spoilt for choice. This reminds me, I recently watched a video that beautiful captures first date anxieties. Do watch. And yes, happy date night! 🙂
