MoneySupermarket Style Challenge #4 | First Date

Friday, 7 September 2012
Time for another category in the MoneySupermarket style challenge - today it's First Date. 

Now the last time I went on a first date was 4 years ago, so at first I was like "hmmm what WOULD I actually wear on a first date?!" - but after a bit of searching I think I've found my ideal date outfit.  As per the other categories in this competition I've decided to choose all my items from one retailer - so for First Date I've gone with H&M.  One thing I love about the H&M website is their virtual dressing room where you can "try on" your items before you - it's great for building outfit ideas (in fact, I used it last year before Christmas and basically designed my party outfit that I then went and bought in store!).

For this outfit I've chosen a statement skirt and accessorised with a teal/turquoise blazer, shoes and bracelet to draw out the turquoisy tones in the skirt.  As the skirt, jacket and shoes are pretty bright I've gone for a fairly plain top and bag, as I think it would look too busy if I went for anything with a pattern and look too matchy if I went for more turquoise.  The bracelet was a perfect find as it has just a touch of turquoise to tie in with the outfit, and the dark grey/metallic colour matches well with the necklace and contrasts nicely against the white top.

Tomorrow I'll post my final entry for the competition which has the theme "Office Wear".  If you're as big a fan of style challenges as me then be sure to check out my other entries for the MoneySupermarket comp - Party, Casual, and Outdoor - or to see them all in one read my intro post.
