If you are like me, you are likely to feel a bit nervous on a first date. Frankly, I am so nervous that sometimes I feel somewhat scared. What is he going to be like? What if there is simply nothing to talk about? What should I wear to appear cool and yet not too revealing, perhaps? So many things can go wrong.
Your outfit for the first date is always very important. You will have to make a good impression, first up. But you can’t be too inviting. In fact, there are so many dressing rules for a first date that it can become a bit confusing.
I would suggest you go with something that makes you feel comfortable. But there are still some tried-and-tested rules that you must keep in mind when selecting your clothing and accessories for a first date.
I worked my brain to create a list of the style mistakes you must avoid. Take a look.
Wear Something Fresh
You need to appear cheerful, positive and fresh on the date. So don’t wear that denim you have been wearing throughout the week. It is likely to be stretched out. Plus, there is every possibility of a few stains on your jeans. Pick another outfit.
Don’t Get Stressed
Don’t worry too much about the first date outfit. What you wear on the next few times is more important, of course, if you guys are meeting again. If you begin to dress down, then it’s a sign that the two of you are becoming more comfortable with each other. Great going!
Don’t Be Too Ambitious
There is nothing wrong in wearing your top statement piece. However, if you are unsure, then go with something simpler. Less can actually be more. You can try a dress that is made with luxury silk fabric from Tissura. There are many color and design options to choose from. Silk is comfortable and will look good and classy on you always. You won’t look over or under-dressed.
Don’t Show Too Much Skin
Be careful about how much you reveal on a first date. A lot of skin can actually put him off. He may think you are desperate and could get the wrong message. Pick something trendy, but be conservative. Show off your elegance, but don’t overdo it. A strapless maxi dress could be just perfect if you have great arms.
Always dress to feel comfortable. If you are not feeling comfortable, then your date will sense it, and will also be uncomfortable around you. So your outfit should put you at ease.
A Lot of Makeup Is Bad
Your dress or appearance should never be a detraction. What you talk is always more important. Too much lipstick can get smeared on your teeth, making it messy. Your body glitter can spread all over the dinner table.
