There’s an old proverb that goes like ‘first impressions are the last impressions.’ And this hold true or a number of situations like job interviews and first dates. Moving away from jobs and sticking to first dates, here’s a list of mistakes to avoid with your choice of clothes for the first date. Don’t do these, and you’ll pretty much land a good starting impression for him to call you up the next morning and take you out on another night.
Too tight, too uncomfortable
You’re probably feeling nervous on the first date anyway, why would you want to make yourself feel even more uncomfortable in a dress that’s too tight for you to even breathe properly in? Try to be as relaxed as possible on a first date so that you don’t end up creating a bad impression on him. And that’s way dressing casual is probably the best way to dress on a first date. Throw on your favorite pants, with a nice cropped top that matches, your favorite heels, some light makeup, and you should be good to go. As long as the clothes are clean, it’s all good!
Sleeveless, strapless, backless all in one
NO… that’s a big fat no! Too much skin show on the first date is like dressing for disaster and should top the list of dating mistakes. It just sends out all the wrong signals in one sight. Too shameless, too horny, and too slutty, don’t think you’d want to be dubbed with all three of those in the same breath. It’s simple; there are dresses that are better suited for first dates, and the holy trinity of skin show doesn’t quite make the list by even a mile.
And even if you’re covered from head to toe in fabric but sport a neckline that falls way down there, you’re not any better off than the one who dares to bare a bit too much. Plunging necklines are attention-grabbing and that too for the wrong reasons. Most men think that women showing off too much cleavage on the first date are either too direct, or simply trying really hard! Besides, there are some things that you’re better of revealing when you hit 2nd or 3rd base. And no, full sleeved tops with a plunging V-neck aren’t really as chic as a boat neck or turtleneck.
Short shorts and skirts are like an open invitation for a guy to slide his hand and tickle your pickle. Yea… not on a first date maybe! Just like you shouldn’t show too much on the top, you should also avoid showing too much of your stems. Besides, you’ll probably also have to do too much prep work for making them legs look pretty – too much effort for a first date I mean. Denims, black skinning, and long skirts with a matching cropped top that doesn’t show too much are a far better option for length management down there.
So what are you wearing to your first date?
