Congratulations! You’ve bagged a first date with someone you think you might like, and you are really looking forward to it. The only question in your mind now is what to wear. Should you dress down in your jeans, or should you wear your favorite dress?
Dressing for a first date can be tricky, especially if you really want to make a good impression. Thankfully, we are here to help. Here are three tips to help you find the perfect outfit for your first date.
Stick to Your Own Fashion Rules
If you want to make sure that you feel good about yourself, you should always stick to your own fashion rules. After all, you will feel happier if you feel confident! For instance, some people love showing off their legs, while other people would much rather show off their arms.
If you have any personal fashion rules (maybe you dislike wearing skirts, or you prefer to wear bright colors), stick to those rules for the first date. It can be tempting to try out something new, but if you dress how you prefer to dress you will show off more of your personality (and you will also feel more comfortable and confident).
Keep It Simple
You should also try to keep it simple for the first date. Avoid extremes such as heavy make-up or flashing too much skin, and instead, try to choose an outfit that won’t distract too much. After all, you want to look nice, but you don’t want your outfit or your make-up to distract from your personality.
Of course, that doesn’t mean that you can’t dress up or make an effort; just make sure that your outfit compliments your personality rather than overshadowing it. For instance, if you are going to a nice restaurant, a red maxi dress is a great option – but you might want to keep your make-up and hair simple.
It’s not hard to find a beautiful red maxi dress that is perfect for date night.
Wear Something That You Feel Comfortable In
The most important thing is that you feel comfortable so that you can really focus on your date. So if it is going to be a cold night, bring a jacket, and if you will be walking, avoid wearing heels.
