What to wear on the first date? It’s a dilemma that we single gals have been trying to solve for decades! (And one that our readers have asked us about on several occasions!) Sure, to some, it sounds like a no-brainer but when it gets down to the wire, we all experience some form of first date wardrobe panic when the “dress to impress” pressure is on!
To help us finally get clarity on the issue, Let location be your guide–your look should reflect your environment! Also, pick one best asset to show off and that’s it. For example: Do you have great arms? Wear a strapless maxi dress. Great legs? Wear shorts or a skirt. The bottom line—too much skin can actually be a turn off and look like you’re trying too hard. Also, this might sound obvious, but give yourself plenty of time to plan out what you’re wearing. (And enough time to steam or iron your outfit beforehand!) Being stressed out until the second your date picks you up is no way to start out! Make sure you wear something that fits you and choose a colour or outfit that you are often complimented on.In all, comfort should be your first priority! The last thing you want to do is be fidgeting with your outfit—there are more important things to be thinking about!
Style To Avoid
Don’t show too much skin! Avoid extremes like overly trendy outfits or heavy makeup. Natural and minimal is always best for the first date.There is a saying that, more is more–and by that, it means don’t give it all away on the first date! If you wear something short, balance that out with long sleeves and a low heel. If you decide to wear something backless or low cut in the front, wear it with a maxi skirt or jeans. wear something that fits you! It shouldn’t be too loose or oversized—something that shows off your figure but isn’t too tight.
