It’s a nerve racking experience, right?!
You MUST make that all important fantastic impression. The biggest factor (you feel), as a fashionable woman, is what to wear. Deciding what to wear is a difficult thing to do, and you’ll probably consult all of your friends before deciding… You may even take a trip shopping to pick yourself up something new. Although, you’re not really sure what you’re going to be looking for. You want to look your best, whilst keeping comfortable and of course looking as slimming as possible.
Avoid looking too “vampy” or “flirtatious” on a first date. Keep in mind the impression that you want to give off.
The first thing you need to bear in mind is to feel your best, confident, happy and comfortable! You don’t want to turn up feeling insecure and shy because of what you’re wearing. You need something that’s going to make you peak and feel brilliant.
I think the biggest fear that women have about going on a first date, is whether they’re going to over or under dress, so it’s about finding that perfect balance. Of course, you must find out what you’ll be doing on your date or where you’ll be going. Obviously, you wouldn’t wear the same thing to a restaurant as you would going to a theme park!
The dinner date: Keep elegant and classy. A nice pair of heels with a knee length dress is perfect. Don’t show too much boob, as you want to leave some things to the imagination, and of course, stay classy.
The day date: Keep casual! It’s the day and you’re on a casual date. You don’t want to look desperate. Ensure your hair and makeup is in full swing, but keep your casual attire on. Jeans and a t-shirt definitely work well.
Wear clothes that you would usually wear and give off your personality. Don’t pretend to be somebody you’re not by dressing up or down to impress somebody else. Keep to your usual style. Colours are important when it comes to clothing. Usually a dark colour is most flattering on our bodies, and most slimming, so would usually say to go for that. However, if you’re a more daring character, then of course it’s brilliant to dabble. But remember, you don’t want to scare them away with any outrageous outfits.
Top tip: Remember to be yourself. Dress how you usually would, and not somebody that you’re trying to be.
