We all have those moments where we claim to have nothing to wear. The first date is most definitely one of those situations. You want to present yourself as your best you. The following article lists some simple tips to think about when picking out your outfit.
Dress for the occasion
This is the first time you are meeting this person, you want to put your best self forward. Dress up for the occasion. It’s not very often in this day in age that the occasion arises. You don’t to be under or over dressed, consider what you would wear if were going with a couple of girlfriends. You want to feel comfortable in what you are wearing, so choose something that makes you exude confidence.
You don't always have to follow trends, crazy but true. I know you are dying to wear that new dress but most guys don’t appreciate or understand trends. Save it for a girl’s night out. Go for something simple, this is where the staples in your closet come in handy. Try a pair of women's jeans, a white t-shirt, black blazer and black patent heel. The cool chic is fantastic for every date situation. Add accessories that match your personality.
No low blows
Avoid strapless, low cut collars and spaghetti straps. Basically avoid clothing that you don’t feel comfortable in and will spend the night double checking. You may not agree with this tip but it will insure that you aren't fiddling with your clothes the whole evening, therefore focusing your attention on the conversation. You also don't want to distract him.
No face paint
Please do not go overboard with the makeup. More is not better, it simply is more. Too much makeup can make you look like you are wearing a mask; this can be scary for guys. They want to see your face not face paint. Your usual makeup routine is what you know best and you should stick to it. You are beautiful; all you need is some confidence to help that beauty shine.
Comfort is key
This is the most important tip. Comfort trumps trends every time. You should never wear clothing you don't feel comfortable in, specifically on a first date. You want to come across confident, uncomfortable clothes will not assist you in doing this. Confidence is sexy. You need to be realistic about your body shape. You want to accentuate your assets and fit in all the right places. Go comfort in the physical sense but also in a personality sense. You want your clothing to suit you.
It’s simple. Be true to who you are and you’ll come up with the perfect outfit for your first day. There is no purpose in dressing as someone else, be you loud and proud.
