We all get nervous when we get asked out to a date and it’s an added bonus if we have been interested in the person for some time before that happens. As soon as we get asked out, our brain hits overdrive and we go through our entire closet in our heads, pairing things and working out an outfit depending on the time of the date.
Don’t get too nervous here are some safe bets that you can work with and look fabulous on that first date from your dress to designer jewelry and footwear. So let’s go:
1. Go Red
Red is the most opted for color when it comes to dates. Men respond well to red and are attracted to it (research proven!). So if you want to look drop dead gorgeous go for a little red dress along with your fine jewelry. It doesn’t always have to be a red dress, you can use a red skirt with a leather jacket or a red blouse but if you think red is not your color, add red to you look by using a simple red lipstick.
2. The Summer Look
You need to look relaxed and happy on your date even if there is a tornado of emotions inside you, so in order to do that go for the perfect summer look. Choose soft fabrics and prints with are feminine and give a happy feel. A summer dress or a plain silk dress with heels works absolutely fine. It needs to be subtle but quirky as well. You don’t the guy to think that you are too subtle as well.
3. Know Your Plus Points
Do not experiment on your first date and play your strength. If you have a great figure show it off, that does not mean you expose, it means that you wear something that makes your body look good and which you are comfortable in. if you have great legs, show them off by wearing dress or a skirt. You can wear designer jewelry along with any choice you make to add a bit of zest.
4. Be Confident Of You Style
Confidence is attractive. Don’t be uncomfortable or overly cautious of your clothes. If it makes you feel vulnerable or uncomfortable don’t wear it. Confidence is your best feature and it should come out from your outfit. So always choose something you like and feel at ease in.
5. Have a Pair Just For Date
Heels always look great for a date unless it is an outdoorsy or walk in the park sort of date. You need a comfortable pair that does not hurt your feet too much like wedges or pumps. Do not wear a new pair of anything be it heels or ballet flats or your date will end in shoe bites and sore feet which you don’t want.
6. An Outdoorsy Outfit
In case your date is outside, like in a park where you are going for a picnic or a walk. Try a pair of cute shorts and loose top; you can wear wedges or flats whichever you like. It needs a casual look. Don’t dress up too much for this as it will look out of place. A cute outdoorsy outfit is as important as anything. It can be a pair of ripped jeans a white t-shirt or blouse as well.
You can add designer jewelry like a pair of earrings or bracelets and anklets to your outfit.
7. Chill With The Make-up
Please do not go overboard with your make-up. Stick to a natural look which brings out your personality. A natural color foundation, eyeliner and nice shade of lipstick are more than enough. You don’t need bright eye shadows and loud lips or rosy/bronze cheeks. Be yourself on a date that is what makes the other person like you.
