'Love Story' Movie

This must surely be one of my most favourite, movie fashion inspirations. It certainly had tons of style in every shot of Ali MacGraw, without being unduly influenced by fashion. When the weather is cold outside and with a roaring fire indoors, I always think of this movie. The 1970 classic 'Love Story' movie, inspires the kind of perfect love one can only dream about. With the radiance of American Ivy League as a backdrop, the classic white, stone-washed buildings and bright sun against knee-deep snows, it all seems to reflect Ali's beauty.

Her enviable wardrobe provided inspiration for fashion designers in future years. Her clothing evokes the classic 'preppy' style and today is accessible to everyone. Playing a poor scholarship student, Jenny Cavaleri, Ali became a style icon that made that American style, famous and trendy. Classic designers like Michael Kors and Calvin Klein certainly took lots of inspiration from the movie for their subsequent collections.

Ali constantly wore amazing coats with classic masculine lines, like the fantastic camel coloured, cashmere coat, that wrapped around her sporty figure so well. There was also the deep blue, pea coat with the shiny buttons, teamed with lovely turtlenecks peeping from beneath. The masterful colour arrangements of her outfits contributed a lot to the success of this unforgettable style. The beige with black and red check skirt, worn as she moved in and out of the school building, flowed alongside her fast wit and humorous banter with Ryan O'Neal.

A first date  is one of the most crucial moments. This is the time where potential couples get to know each other and that's the reason why we should make a good impression. Looking good and feeling great are one of the most basic essentials especially when you are on a date.

1. Determine Your Partner's Style

It is a must that you should know your partner's style so that you can determine what kind of outfit you need to use. You should also take note of the venue where your date is going to be held. Is it in a bowling alley? Is it in a fancy restaurant? Is your date the rocker type or the athletic type? Is he the laid back kind or a stylish fashionista? Try to think of these things first.

2. Comfort Is Key

You've finally spotted that oh-so gorgeous dress and the killer heels that go perfectly well with it. However, these outfits become a pain in the butt because the dress is too tight and the heels are literally killing your feet. In order to prevent this unwanted discomfort from ruining your date, try to wear a dress that will make you feel gorgeous. Wear a pair of shoes that will give you the utmost comfort.

3. Wear Something That Is Flattering

Choosing the right outfit can be a bit tricky. You would want to wear something that is sexy but tasteful at the same time. A little black dress is always one of the most popular go-to outfits on a first date, because it's just oh-so simple yet elegant.
