Ace Your Outfit For Your First Date

Tuesday, September 06, 2016

We all know that first impressions are a big deal. But there is one part of our lives where they are crucial. And that’s in dating. 

Getting your first date look right is super important. After all, this is the first time you and your crush will be going out and getting to know each other. So what you are wearing could leave a lasting impression on him. Want to get it right? Here are my top tips to nail your first date look!

Scope Out Your Venue

If you are going to dinner, you will have the tricky job of deciding how casual or sophisticated to go. To help you get the style of your outfit right, scope out the restaurant online. If you can see pictures of people at the restaurant, you should get an idea of what type of clothes to wear. If you are just grabbing a coffee during the day, you’ve got things slightly easier. In this instance, keep it casual, so you don’t look like you have overdressed!

Cover Up

Ever heard the phrase ‘less is more’? Well, when it comes to first dates, this isn’t true, so try and get this out of your head! Instead, cover up as much as possible. So rather than choosing a dress with a plunging neckline chose something more refined that doesn’t give too much away. Make sure you aren’t showing too much leg either! You might be surprised to hear that showing too much skin can make men feel threatened. So reign it in until at least the third date!

Give Yourself Plenty Of Time

No one wants to mess up their hair or makeup while they are getting ready for a first date. If you don’t give yourself much time to get ready, you may have to rush out the door with your makeup looking far from perfect! Giving yourself plenty of time can also help you get your hair just right

Don’t Risk High Heels

Wearing heels is fine is you can confidently wear them. But don’t go over the top and wear ones that will make you tower over your date. Some men are intimidated by very tall women! Try to play it safe and stick to kitten heels or flats.

Be Yourself!

Don’t forget that this is a date, and you should shine! So it is important to ensure your outfit is a true representation of you and your personality. Don’t wear anything too bold or trendy if you would never consider wearing it usually. Rather than buying a completely new outfit for your date, take a look through your wardrobe. You may be amazed to find something that is suitable for your date. And you can be sure that these clothes will help you feel yourself!

As long as you look confident and happy with your date, the evening, it's sure to be a success!
