So you are getting dressed for your first date with a hot guy, how exciting! Since I love fashion, I am here to tell you what are some common fashion don’ts you want to avoid on your first date. Remember what you wear on a first date speaks volumes on the first impression you give the guy, so you shouldn’t go over board. Stick to outfits that will show off your curves and, at the same time, feel comfortable, so you can relax and have some fun.
Fashion Don’t #1 For Women on a First Date – Revealing Stripper-Type Outfits
Alright ladies, don’t shoot me for this, I do understand that you want to look sexy on your first date with a guy, but there is a fine line between looking sexy and slutty. Wearing stripper-type outfits that reveal too much cleavage might send out the wrong message to the guy. If it’s casual sex you are after, then go for it. But if you want the guy to look at your overall beauty, then do not wear over-the-top revealing outfits. (Do not go on a date looking like a hoochie-mama from a music video)
My advice: opt for dresses that are made out of Lycra or knit material that hug a woman’s curves and this looks sexy, but doesn’t reveal too much. I live by this basic fashion rule: if I wear a skirt, I do not wear a v-neck top. But if I wear a v-neck top, I wear pants or skinny jeans. Do not reveal all of your private parts to a man on your first date, leave some mystery for his imagination.
Fashion Don’t #2 For Women on a First Date – Too Much Make-up
Once you have your outfit together, do not apply too much make-up. You want the man to see the beautiful features of your face and not layers of thick foundation and over-powering eye shadow. Trust me, I have asked men before if they like a woman who wears a lot of make-up, and most of them said they prefer women who keep their make- up to a minimum.
My advice: apply a nice eye shadow that will compliment your eyes and match your outfit. Use a light blush or bronzer to highlight your cheek bones, and wear a sheer lip gloss or lipstick. Remember, the basic make-up rule: less is more.
Fashion Don’t #3 For Women on a First Date – Wearing Old Jeans
Depending where you are going on a date, wearing jeans can be appropriate if you dress them up a bit with a nice top and necklace. But do not wear mom’s jeans or the old pair of jeans you wear on a Sunday afternoon. Also, do not wear a jean jacket and jeans. That look is out. Jeans on a first date looks too casual and, again, you want to feel comfortable, but, since it is a first date, you want to dress to impress.
My advice: opt for a pair of skinny dark jeans. They look sexy when you wear a form-fitting shirt with a mini-blazer. Or try a lace-type frilly blouse with dark jeans, this look is fun and flirty, yet classy and sexy.
Fashion Don’t #4 For Women on a First Date – Clashing Colours
On the first date, you want your outfit to look good and colours are great, but you do not want your date to get blinded by such clashing colours. Do not wear too many bright colours like red, green, and orange, it is a bit distracting. Absolutely, do not wear neon coloured outfits. The stop light look is a big fashion no-no.
My advice: if you like red or green, pair it with black. So if you wear a red dress, wear black pantyhose. If you wear a green top, wear a black a-line skirt. Bright colours should always be neutralized with a darker colour.
Fashion Don’t #5 For Women on a First Date – Too Much Jewelery
It’s great to wear jewelery on a first date, but do not wear too much. Stay away from wearing too many bracelets that jingle when you move your arm. That is quite distracting on a date. Do not wear door-knocker earrings, you want the guy to focus on your face during the date, and not on your huge earrings. Also, stay away from too many necklaces, it looks sloppy.
My advice: I always follow a three piece jewelery rule that consists of hoop earrings, a necklace, and a simple bracelet or watch. Again, too much bling can be distracting, so keep the jewelery to a minimum on the first date. Your smile should be the only thing shining.
