Choosing first date outfits can be stressful AF. First impressions are hugely important, especially when it comes to romance, so we're super strategic about what to wear on a first date. When meeting potential love interests, do we go the sexy route or leave things to the imagination? Do we play it cool with ripped jeans or show our feminine side with a flirty dress? The best advice we can give is to wear what you're most comfortable in.

If you're feeling particularly stumped about what to wear on a first date, turn to the stars to guide you.
