The first impression matters a whole lot. Especially when going on a date with someone you just met, you need to give a perfect look and make a lasting impression in the person's mind. Although first impressions are not only about looks, appearance does play a key role in how others perceive us. As many single people can attest, deciding what to wear on a first date can easily feel as daunting as the actual date itself. By understanding what to wear on a first date, you can increase your chances of hitting it off and, hopefully, scoring a second date.
Here is how to dress perfectly for a first date;
WEAR SOMETHING THAT MAKES YOU FEEL CONFIDENT
The best outfit to wear on a first date is one that makes you feel like your best self. When you look good, you feel good.
WEAR RED OR BLACK
According to color psychologists, the best colors to wear on a first date are red and black. Wearing the two romantic colors, especially if you’re a woman, can make you appear more attractive and more desirable to your date.
WEAR SOMETHING COMFORTABLE
Wearing an uncomfortable outfit is a sure way to send nonverbal signals that you aren’t having a good time even if you are. So, wear something you feel comfortable in. Wearing a first-date outfit that’s comfortable allows you to stay fully engaged in the conversation. Instead of thinking about how your shoes are rubbing or your shirt keeps riding up, you can focus on creating a deeper connection with the person across the table.
STICK TO SIMPLE OUTFITS
When it comes to first dates, it’s best to stick to simple outfits using classic styles. Clothing that’s super trendy or fashion-forward can make you appear materialistic and unapproachable. The goal is for your first date outfit to seem effortless. This applies to both men and women.
On a final note, Your outfit should reflect your style and provide your date with a snapshot of your personality. Wear something that makes you feel like you, whether that be your favorite color or your go-to cologne. Don't forget to be yourself!
