12 August, 2015:Â Well how would you define your first date? For me I would say a date is not where you want to wear an outrageous, attention getting outfits. A first date is not an ideal way to show off your outlandish personality. You probably feel the anticipation of going out on a first date, you may feel overly excited, or may feel a high level of anxiety. There are some usual worries and fears that come with a first date. A first date creates butterflies that make it so exciting to actually go through it.
These usual â€œwhat if I speak gibberish?â€ or â€œwhat if I wear high heels and fall down?â€ or â€œwhat if I canâ€™t find something to talk about and he thinks Iâ€™m a total idiot?â€ or â€œ what if I am dressed totally contrary to the date?â€ feelings drive you jumpy. You may panic when you go to your wardrobe and look inside, but donâ€™t worry; you probably have something in there that works. Take a deep breath and start pulling out things that fit you comfortably, that you can dress up or down as needed. Who knows your first date may be the Mr. Right; you were looking for or just Mr. Right now. Here are a few things to consider for your first date before choosing your outfit. As this is a huge part in what to wear that describe you.
- Be neat
Always buying a new outfit isnâ€™t the go option for a first date, but make sure whatever you choose to wear is clean, and isnâ€™t wrinkled. Check for stains, tears, rips, or seams coming apart before you wear it in public. You may not care or notice; but it might make him think about your own personal hygiene.
- Know where you are going
This is important because if you donâ€™t know where you are going, you wonâ€™t know how to dress for the situation and over/under dressing can make the situation feel more awkward than it needs to be. This might ruin your date too. You might not want to wear those sexy dress and heels and walk hard for a walk or a drive. If you are on your dinner date, you would not probably get dressed into those casual stuffs. If itâ€™s cold and you donâ€™t want to bring a heavy jacket, you may change the type of dress you plan.
- Dress comfortably
First and foremost thing that you need to consider is, you need to feel as comfortable as you can on a first date. You rather focus on getting to know the person you are with, instead of trying to un-wedge a too tight skirt and pull it down the whole night. If you are feeling uneasy, heâ€™ll either think you are high maintenance, or bored. Well this isnâ€™t the impressions you want to give on a first date. Donâ€™t wear clothing that doesnâ€™t fit, or is too tight or in short in those you are not comfortable with. Struggling with your dress isnâ€™t just not the right message to send on a first date.
- Be yourself
Whatever you wear, be true to yourself. Donâ€™t try to imitate or cover yourself with a so called wow going image. No matter how clumsy you are, or how talkative you are or how funky you are; hiding yourself to portray your wow-going image doesnâ€™t always work on your first date, as your so made image doesnâ€™t go with the flow always.
- Stay classy
Classy dresses are always a good option. You can always dress up or down a little white/black dress, and it suits most venues, however, if you are going to the beach, or a coffee, or drive. You might just want to dress down teaming up on jeans, so pick up a cool white shirt or with flowers instead. Or instead of jeans, wear a jean skirt, with some cool sandals. Try put on something that catch his eye, be it your dress or some accessories.
- Make up
Makeup and hair is also an important part of a first date. You donâ€™t want to overdo it, or under do it, coz you donâ€™t want him to think you spent extreme time on your appearance. Donâ€™t make yourself look like a painted doll, especially if thatâ€™s not your normal makeup routine. Most men like subtle makeup that accentuates features. You want them to be thinking about kissing your soft, feminine mouth, not wondering if theyâ€™ll wear your lipstick on their teeth or wreck your makeup.
- Donâ€™t forget your nails
Your hand speaks a lot and so does the nails. Manicure right before a first date; neat, trim nails, with a pleasant nude or light color that enhance your hands. Your nails get noticed as they are a part that glam up your personality.
- No gifts
Taking a gift isnâ€™t always a good option if you think to get one. You are not always right and ideal on choosing a gift coz itâ€™s your first date and likewise you get to know the person rather taking a risk of unfavorable gifts. However, a flower can be expected to flavor your date.
- Wear on a good perfume
You would probably want him to feel the aroma while hugging or dancing. This is a very important aspect that you need to consider coz the perfume you choose might set that impression and surely make him remember you even when you are not along.
Lastly, thereâ€™s tons doâ€™s and donâ€™ts out there for first date. The key here is dress to be comfortable, classy, and let yourself be able to shine, so you can get to know each other instead of focusing on some other stuff.
