You’ve probably figured out what to wear on a date in general, but how to dress on a first date takes more thought and planning based on how you want to portray yourself to a romantic partner.

First Date Outfit Ideas

Show off your best asset

A best first date outfit will help you feel confident. So, pick your favorite body part that you want to show off, and build your dinner date outfit around showing it off tastefully. Do you have great legs? Shorts or a skirt are a great choice! Want to show off your shoulders? Go with a sleeveless top. If you choose one body part to show off, you will be good without showing too much skin. Keep in mind that at Crab House, your crab bib will be over your top to keep you clean while you dig in. Plan accordingly.

Comfort is key

When deciding what to wear on a first date, we highly recommend prioritizing comfort. For instance, jeans and a top, or a casual dress, whatever fits well and stay in place that you wont need to keep tugging on. A comfortable you will be a confident happy you so you can spend your time focused on your date.

Also, be careful when choosing high heels. If they give you confidence, great, but if they make it so you can’t walk comfortably or your heels will get stuck in the wood slats of the pier, that is an issue as well.

Keep it casual

For a casual dinner date outfit, add a fun accessory or statement jewelry that shows off your personality. Confidence is everything. If you feel best when you’re dressed up on a first date – then add some flare and be yourself. Your date will appreciate your true self coming through. You don’t have to show up in a tshirt and jeans if you’re always a dress girl.

We look forward to having you in rocking your first date outfit and devouring delicious Dungeness crab, cocktails and wine while overlooking the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz and Fisherman’s Wharf. Relax and have fun! That’s what it’s all about.
