Its freezing here and going to snow tomorrow a little bit. We are going to an early dinner and then who knows? I would say not totally casual, but not formal either.

since it's cold, better dress for the weather! wouldn't want to be freezing, that would be no fun. also, is the restaurant you're going to fancy or casual?
i think a skirt and shirt would work perfectly.. add some opaque tights and a pair of heels and you're good! layering, i think, would be key, so under the shirt a camisole maybe, and under your coat maybe a cardigan/sweater? a pashmina can double as a scarf for when you're outdoors and something to wrap around your shoulders inside..
of course, you should be totally comfortable in what you're wearing! try different looks and see what works.

Great ideas! I'll wear my grey pashmina as a scarf/wrap. Now the outfit above is a bit hard to make out because of all the black, is that a tunic with leggings and boots?

Yes, I think this is the most important - when you feel comfortable and confident in what you are wearing you look the most beautiful. Wearing something that you need to adjust and that makes you fidget reflects on your overall "personality" as far as first dates go.

strategicly placed whipped cream and strawberries

seriously tho, i think guys should wear something that combines both comfort and good looks. a good pair of jeans, either sandals or drivers (or even slip ons) and an oxford shirt. if it's a tad bit more formal or upscale, throw a blazer on top. a well cut pullover is perfect for casual dates. a hoodie when it's a date by the water.

always make sure to smell good!

what do you guys think about a woman wearing a blazer on a date?...
it that too 'formal'?...too business-like...
does it say...'don't touch'...
maybe it's better for lunch than for drinks?...

i don't know...

I think if you look like her ^ you can wear whatever the hell you like . I wouldn't wear a blazer though, unless I was balancing it out with a mini.

I don't date, I hate the whole idea of 'dating' and tend to do the English thing where I manage to have relationships without ever going on dates before. However, a friend of mine is basically a professional dater and has very strict advice on first date (daytime or early afternoon) attire:

1. Wear a flattering minidress, but dress it down with a long cardigan and tights so you don't look like you're trying too hard, or are high maintenance, or care too much.
2. Never wear very high heels, ballet flats are better for first date.
3. Perfect hair.
4. Subtle make-up.

People here spend too much money on clothes to have anything left over for dates

Blazers are fine as long as they're not:
1. cut like a business blazer
2. combined with anything that would suggest more work than play. Business attire for women, doesn't evoke a very appealing image, aside from the secretary.
