Need a new date outfit? As cities around the world participated in Fashion’s Night Out on Thursday, September 8, we are reminded about the importance of picking the right outfit to wear when you’re dating.  Finding something comfortable, yet sexy while allowing your personal style to show through can be a daunting task.  In Los Angeles, Cupid’s Pulse stopped by Nordstrom at The Grove for the launch of Lauren Conrad’s new clothing line, Paper Crown. Conrad was busy signing autographs for her fans, but we were able to walk through the collection with her best friend and co-founder of Paper Crown, Maura McManus, to show us a few great options for a first date.

Pictured here is the Katherine pant in eclipse blue coupled with the Camilla sweater in dark grey — a great outfit for something more casual like a wine tasting, brunch or a simple walk in the park.

If you want something a bit more dressed up and sexy, then McManus says to go with the Lola dress —  while flirty and very flattering, the material is quite stretchy allowing you to maintain comfort and is knee-length so you’re not exposing too much on that first date!

A fun option that would be great for dinner and drinks is the Piper top paired with the Sophie skirt. Still trendy, yet flowy and comfortable.

Speaking of comfortable, remember while looking fabulous is essential on a first date, what’s even more important is that you’re comfortable in whatever you wear and that it reflects your own style.
