Whether it’s a Zoom date or you just want to get dressed when on a Facetime chat with that cute guy you’ve been talking to on Bumble, we’ve got a couple of outfit ideas to nail that no-fuss (yet divine) look that’ll surely get those hearts racing. But even if they can’t get a whiff of your signature scent through their screens, you can still charm them with these 5 go-to outfits. Hey, virtual first impressions count, too.

Ruffled Tops with Feminine Details

Short patchwork dress by STRADIVARIUS, Denim headband with faux pearl details and Set of chain earrings by BERSHKA, Chain Choker Multipack and Banana phone case by TOPSHOP

Romantic is an understatement when opting for feminine silhouettes. Details such as ruching, bows, frills and plumage are top-tiered choices that flutter the hearts of many.

Knitted Coordinates

Diamond pattern sweater, Knit crop top, Check mini skirt all by ZARA, Textured drop hoop earrings by TOPSHOP, Marble phone case by CHARLES & KEITH. Oversized check cardigan, Knit shorts with side ribbing by ZARA, Lock chain choker necklace, Pack of 2 hair clips both by TOPSHOP

Keep it cozy (and equally flirty) with open work knitted tops, dainty cut-out sweaters or even a mini dress. For a more calculated sensual approach, opt to wear it with one shoulder exposed for that sexy hint of skin on that virtual date of yours.

Statement Sleeves

Sparkly Organza Blouse, Faux leather bermuda shorts, Rhinestone teardrop earrings all by ZARA, Statement Snake Multipack Ring by TOPSHOP. Voluminous denim top by ZARA, Smudge Animal Print Plisse Flare Trousers by TOPSHOP, Rhinestone seashell earrings by ZARA, Black Stone Ring by TOPSHOP

An easy way to make an impression is by wearing your heart on your sleeve, pun intended. A huge trend that took over 2019 alone, poplin blouses, puffed sleeves and asymmetrical tops will leave bit of drama, perhaps the only kind we will endorse.

Button-Down Shirt 

Poplin shirt with pleats, Rhinestone seashell necklace, Seashell and pearl necklace, Seashell rings all by ZARA, White poplin corset top by TOPSHOP. Printed pyjama shirt and trousers and pearl hoops by ZARA, Rose gold specs by CHARLES & KEITH

Ah, the crisp white shirt. No matter what setting, this classic wardrobe staple never fails especially in renditions of silk, velvet, corduroy or even sheer. Nothing makes the men stutter than a woman taking charge in a staple that is typically masculine. Really, this look never fails.

Silk Tops And Dresses

Ruched satin cami, Ochre Plain Satin Sarong Skirt, Star Charm Gold Multirow Necklace, Panther Ring Drop Earrings, Red Cowl Back Satin Slip Dress, Chain Drop Earrings, Choker Necklace, Smooth Wrap Bracelet all by TOPSHOP
Who says you have to save that outfit only after the quarantine has been lifted? That silk dress ala Elvira Hancock from Scarface is not only restricted to the bedroom but for last-minute virtual dates, too. Bonus points if you feel like wearing something sparkly for a weekend shindig in.
