What to wear on a first date - the universal question that stumps everyone. The first date is a phenomenon that seems to spin us into a frenzy. When we’re fussing over how to do our hair, what venue to choose, what time to turn up, and what to wear, we’re ultimately questioning how we want to present ourselves. How we want to come across to the person we’re dating.
The same mentality applies to our jewellery. I often try and strip my jewellery back when going on a first date, feigning nonchalance even if I’ve put a lot of time and thought into my accessories. Got a first date coming up? Well let me ease the nerves by helping you look on-point for that crucial first meeting.
Tateossian - £145
For men whose style is minimal and contemporary, Tateossian’s bracelet is an understated piece to elevate your outfit.
