How to Dress On a First Date?

Updated: Oct 7, 2019


The question is simple, but somehow we make a lot of mistakes. Why? Because of the great desire to impress, we overdo it and lose rationality. After all, staying rational is so difficult when you like a guy..




Below I will simplify some important rules in hopes they will be helpful for you as you get ready to go on a date.


1. Choose clothes based on the theme of your date. For example, if you go to a restaurant for dinner, the outfit may be more formal, the makeup barely brighter. But if your date is themed - like going to nature, picnic, watching sports games, doing sports and so on - the outfit must of course be looser and more sporty. It happened to me once that I didn't know what I would do during a date. It may also happen to you that you do not know what the guy has prepared for you and what you will do. Here's what I do and it works great: Ask the guy openly to say at least tentatively the topic so you are properly dressed. You will show that you are a practical and sober girl. If he doesn't say it at all, then it's better to wear casual clothes and shoes, such an outfit is suitable for all occasions (heels can be in the car or purse). And if you find yourself going to a restaurant or party - you can pull out your high heels and highlight your lips.


2. Don't choose revealing clothes. Unless you just want to sleep with him (only once).

If you want him to look at you as the material of a long-term girlfriend and marriage, then the outfit must be solid. Rather closed but tight, or with a few accents that will evoke imagination. For example, you meet in the evening and go to a party or dinner, you want to look sexy, spectacular, maybe wear a dress. In that case, if your dress is longer, then you may open up a little back or chest. If the dress is shorter, I would recommend wearing the top as closed as possible. And if your date is during the day, then a stylish, comfortable casual outfit with no reveals is the best! (Well, jeans can tighten the butt - believe me, he will appreciate it. ;) )

3. Guys don't like makeup !! During the day, and especially when dating activities are as active as walks in the park, sports, put little to no makeup just to hide imperfections in the skin, very minimally, so that it doesn't seem to exist at all. Especially colored eyeshadows tell the guys right away - she "paints" a lot. Men do not like women who "paint" a lot because it means for them that she is naturally ugly or she feels insecure. Maybe we care about all the make-up trends and we find it silly that men think so, but believe me they do. The higher the quality, the more intelligent, educated, mature men are, the more they don't like tasteless make-up. If it is evening and you are going to a party, the theater, you want to make your make-up a little brighter, just please avoid too many colours on your eyes. Try to stay solid. Some more: colored lips look nice for men, but some take it as a sign that you don't want to kiss. Yeah yeah, funny! So if the relationship is just building and you're still waiting for his kiss, maybe keep your eyes sharp instead of your lips :)
