First dates are hard. What to wear to for said date? Probably harder. We scooped the Marie Clarie staff to get the deets on what The Perfect First Date Outfit looks like to 7 different editors, plus the one must-have item they won't leave home without wearing.

I find that being more adventurous with my look is an excellent way to weed out basics. If you can't get down with a denim jumpsuit and fluffy curls, you're not my cup of tea.
I wrote about my love of jeans before, so it's no surprise they're my go-to for a first date. I like to know where they stand when it comes to sports teams or bands, so I tend to wear sports t-shirts or concert t-shirts—which is probably 50% of my wardrobe anyway. (Built in conversation starter, I might add.) My date-night must is anything that I think exemplifies "me"—AKA probably my LEGO earrings.
