Dressing for a first date can be tricky, especially if you're ready for that first impression rose. Even if your romantic date night doesn't involve being filmed for national television, it can still be nerve-wracking to pick out an outfit. Follow our dos and don'ts to ensure you look your absolute best for the big occasion - whether it involves a limousine, roses and Chris Harrison or not!
DO wear a pair of killer shoes.
You don't have to go all out with a pair of strappy stilettos, but footwear that you feel comfortable and confident in is a key base to any outfit.
DON'T show too much skin.
You've heard it before and we'll say it again - leave something to the imagination! Intrigue is the name of the game, and revealing too much is a sure way to lose.
DO wear your personality in your outfit.
A first date is the time to reveal your personality - not your skin! Let your personal style shine by choosing something from your closet that you're comfortable in and reflects the way you live your live. If you like to dress up, wear nice jeans and heels. If you prefer casual, try a maxi dress with flat sandals. Whatever you do, don't try to be someone will not. It will show through!
DON'T pile on the glitter.
While we're all about showing off your personal style, it's best to leave the heavy make-up at home. If a guy asks you out, he wants to see you - not a ton of makeup caked on. Play it safe with light with only your absolute go-to beauty essentials.
And remember the biggest DO of all - smile and be confident! You've got nothing to lose - after all, if your date is a dud, at least you got a free meal!
