Date-Night Essentials For Every Body Type

Dating is stressful. There's the pressure of meeting a person in real life for the first time — will they match up the the chat correspondence that led to this dinner? — and a whole host of other jitters-inducing steps. The last thing you need to deal with when putting yourself out there is an uncomfortable outfit that doesn't make you feel like you.
We're not suggesting you show up for drinks in your old, hole-y Champion sweatshirt (although, to each her own), but we would recommend an ensemble that makes you feel kick-ass with as little effort as possible. And, to make that as easy as can be, we've rounded up hero items for each body type.
While we can't guarantee a love match, we're pretty confident that these silhouettes were made to compliment yours. They cleverly highlight your assets, while letting your charming, funny, smart, awesome self shine, as well. Secure at least one in your closet and you're essentially prepared for any kind of date — whether it's with the Tinder hottie next door or your number one who's planning a special evening just 'cause. So, quit beating around the bush and just go for it already. The clothes, that is. Once you've got your sartorial secret weapons, well, who knows where the night may lead.
