Though seemingly exciting, for most women, first dates are usually very stressful seeing as they need to dress up in their best clothes in order to impress their dates. Hence, prior to the date, women would have to rummage their wardrobe for outfits that would make them look their best. In fact, there are women who even go to the extent of researching online or scour the pages of fashion magazines for ideas on what to wear. Out of lack of a better option, this often just end up either buying new special occasion dresses that the fashion industry offer or wearing something completely outrageous. And as such, the date doesn't go as fashionably as planned.
There are men and women who end up not hearing a word from their dates because they didn't look their best during the meet up. There are those who found their unmatched garments a sign that their characteristics are also equally unmatched and collectively decide to part ways. Some, unavoidably, find the ridiculous outfit their date a reflection of his/her personality and find it undesirable at first sight. Given this, it is clear that what one wears weighs heavily on the success of the engagement.
The idea behind preparing for a date is to wear an appealing outfit and send the right message. Women, in particular, need to carefully choose the special occasion dresses they put on them and are appropriate for the setting of the date.
Here are some of the best fashions wear women can use on their first dates:
If you are going out to a date right after your work, keep your image as professional as possible by wearing something that is not so tight, short or low cut. Do not risk appearing too drab to fit in at a happy hour event. Remember that your date is most likely to be in mens formal wear considering that both of you are expected to have just come out of work. So try your best to match his style. Also don't forget to match your outfit with high heels especially when you are wearing a dress or skirt to enhance your legs and make you appear slimmer.
Wear semi-casuals if you are invited to a dinner and movie date. Women can actually wear jeans and flat shoes for such kind of dates, but certainly not sneakers, otherwise they appear as though they were running errands. Leggings are also perfect alternative to jeans. Consider matching your semi-casual or casual attire with dressy accessories for a more fashionable look.
Be in your most comfortable clothes when you are asked to go on a casual date. Casual dates usually involve sightseeing, picnic and strolling at the park as well as watching outdoor concerts so you should really be in clothes that would allow you to enjoy and have fun in all these activities. This kind of meet up give women the opportunity to dress up anyway they want without being too dressy and making it obvious that they are actually on a date.
In any case, avoid appearing scantily clad in your first date; otherwise you'd be driving your man for a more physical rather than a genuine relationship.
