There is nothing worse than the first-date jitters. You are meeting a person you hardly know for an occasion that has a completely uncertain outcome.
One thing you can control? Rocking the perfect outfit for the occasion.
These seven Jewish celebrities mastered a variety of looks that are appropriate for any type of date. Here’s how to copy them on a budget.
Sarah Jessica Parker
If any woman knows how to dress up, it’s SJP. Here, she shows us how a long, romantic maxi dress can work for a celeb-filled event. This look is particular on-trend with its cutout shoulders, and would be great for a more formal event, like a cocktail party. Try your own version of the boho-glam dress. Add some strappy heels and a swipe of lipstick and you will be golden.
Like his O.C. alter ego, Adam Brody dresses equal parts geek and chic. Brody’s cognac V-neck sweater and white oxford shirt are a classic, yet casual combination, and the relaxed khakis, coordinating leather belt, and worn-in converse add the perfect amount of nonchalant polish. Achieve Brody’s look with a J. Crew lambswool sweater, a pair of converse, and a white button-down and khaki pants.
Mila’s sophisticated pantsuit transitions easily from work to play. The sheer top and red heels add just the right amount of sex appeal to the otherwise all-black look. This outfit is perfect for a nice dinner or an art gallery exhibition. Steal Mila’s look with a satin-trimmed blazer, cropped trousers, red pointy-toed heels and a black mesh top.
He may be known for his funny-man roles, but Paul Rudd’s off-screen style is actually quite serious. Rudd’s brown pea coat, plaid button-down, jeans, and dress shoes are casual enough for a stroll in the park, but still sleek enough for a Broadway production. Mimic Rudd’s effortless vibe with a wool-blend pea coat, a plaid shirt and a pair of jeans.
If you’re meeting a prospective date for dinner and drinks, a flirty dress like Dianna’s is always a fail-safe option. Ruffled sleeves and a colorful, whimsical print could potentially be overpowering, but Agron’s black tights and black strappy heels ground the look without detracting from it. Achieve Agron’s look with a printed chiffon dress, a pair of black ankle-strap heels and a coordinating handbag.
Garfield’s clean-cut, minimal look would be perfect for any date-night occasion, from a rooftop bar to a movie. Also, monochromatic black is always an undeniably chic choice. Sport a black sweater, black chinos and a button-down underneath for a swoon-worthy look.
Whitney Port is the queen of downtown cool, so it is no surprise that the fashion designer knows how to dress up a pair of jeans. This crop turtleneck, jeans and heels pairing would be great for a more laid-back event like a concert or a film festival. All you need is a trendy cropped sweater, some distressed denim, and a pair of lux-looking heels to complete the look.
