Long before the pandemic took away my will to wear anything remotely uncomfortable, my foolproof first date outfit was sneakers with a dress. In the words of 2018 Allie, “I think making awkward small talk while being strapped into painful shoes is actually one of Dante’s circles of hell.” I stand by this statement even more now, given that most of our interactions with other people are going to be first-date-awkward for a while. (Anyone else completely forgotten how to socialize?) Really, there’s no better outfit to wear to re-enter society after a year of social distancing than the classic sneakers with a dress combo. It looks stylish, but allows one to both wear comfy shoes and not wear pants. *Chef’s kiss*
