Dressing up for a date can be confusing, but knowing what to wear on a date can give you a lot more confidence and help you carry off the date in style.
We all know that playing the dressing up game for a date is easier for men than women. Men have it easier when it comes to dressing up, and we don’t need more than the Academy Awards to prove that fact.
But rather than be boring and simple, whether you’re a man or a woman, try to be interesting and attractive. If you want to dress to impress, and make your date sit up and take notice of you the very second you walk in, here’s all you need to do.
What to wear on a date – The do’s
There are a lot of things you can do to look your best on a date. You can add your own personal preferences when you’re deciding what to wear on a first date.
But as a general rule of thumb, use these guidelines while deciding what to wear on a date.
Dress for the occasion. Do you know where you’re going? Wear clothes that are appropriate for the occasion. You can look hot in high riding miniskirts or a tux, but really, your date will only feel uncomfortable and awkward to be around you.
Make an impression. You are dressing up and deciding what to wear on a date because you want to make an impression, right? So focus on making a good impression at first sight. Dressing in a regular tee shirt and jeans, or a blouse and skirt can be sweet and comfortable. But it doesn’t reveal much about you.
If you really want to make an impression, accessorize your dress with something more personal that reveals something about you. Wear comfy clothing, but add something that defines who you are. Hand crafted jewelry, a cute hair band or clip, great looking shoes, etc. It could be anything as long as it defines you.
What does your date like?
Do you know your date well enough to make a judgment call? Does your date like girls who wear pink, or men who wear turquoise? If you know your date’s preferences, see if you can wear something they may like. It shows that you’re taking an additional interest to be likeable. And everyone likes a date who takes an initiative.
Clothes that make you feel good
All of us have clothes that make us feel good and look good. You have your favorite blouse or jeans too, right? If you can’t make up your mind on what to wear, or if you find yourself feeling huffy while deciding what to wear, then your best bet is to wear something that you already love. And clothes that make you feel good make you look good too!
Show off your assets discreetly
We love ourselves, yeah! But there’s always something about ourselves and our physiques that we’re really proud of. Is it you shapely shoulders, never ending legs, or is it something else? Wear something that will accentuate your assets and you’ll only feel more confident and look a lot prettier! But of course, you should show off discreetly though.
