Ditch the Denim: Four First Date Alternatives to Jeans
Add some variety to your typical jeans look to help you make a great first date impression!

So it's your first date, but you don't know what to wear? You know you aren't going anywhere formal, but jeans seem way too informal. Chinos, jeans, shorts and sweats are not going to work, but seem to be all that's left in your closet. Here are some first date alternatives to jeans to wow him:

1. Maxi Skirts

Maxi skirts are a comfortable alternative to jeans that can be worn in both the cold and warm seasons. They can be paired with a leather jacket or a fitted blazer for a style that is semi-formal, or with an informal blouse during the day. They're plenty feminine and plenty comfortable. You'll feel great and look great in your maxi skirt!

2. Leggings

Leggings are enjoyed for the lightweight and stretchy material that they offer for a product that is easy to wear on the go. They can be worn under a loose blouse or button up for a slimming style. They show off your curves too, which is a definite plus.

3. Harem Pants

Harem pants are comfortable and fun. They are available in a number of styles, fabrics and prints. To dress them up a little bit, try cropped harem pants with comfortable booties or heels.

4. Trousers

Trousers are a little more formal, but can still be dressed down with an infromal blouse. Try printed trousers with a matching top for a fun look that's way more exciting than denim.

Instead of making jeans your first date staple, opt for refreshing styles that show off your personality. It will make your overall style look more versatile for a fun way of playing dress up and keeping up with the current trends.
