what to wear first date

Read on for a definitive list of items that you should never wear on a first date…unless you don’t want a second one.

1. Something brand new

Wearing a new outfit is always a risk. You never know the kinks of an outfit until you wear it – it could be impossible to sit in (like below), highlight your sweat stains, keep coming unbuttoned or just be plain uncomfortable. Stick to what you know works.

2. Too much perfume

Too much perfume can give people migraines or allergic reactions. We’d rather our date not have a headache, thank you.

3. Too much makeup

He is going to be looking at your face for a majority of the date (at least we hope) - make sure it's worth his while. When it comes to makeup, don't overdo it, don’t under-do it. Stick to nude tones, cover imperfections and do NOT use glitter. The trick with makeup is to look like you are not wearing any #IWokeUpLikeThis.

4. Something that’s not you

If you don’t listen to The Ramones, don’t wear a t-shirt with them on it; if you are a tomboy, don’t aim to dress like a sexy vixen and if you’re usually in flats, don’t wear 6-inch stilettos – lack of authenticity shows!

5. Uncomfortable shoes

Nothing says unattractive like hobbling in your gorgeous but uncomfortable shoes throughout your first date. Also, speaking of unattractive – steer clear of Birkenstocks and Crocs (this is more of a life rule, really).
