How and What To Wear On First Dates


Going out on a date is something that people are often both excited and nervous about at the same time. Every first date holds the promise of finding love but it also holds the potential for going on yet another date, only to learn that the other person is simply not the right one. People that go on a large number of dates in an attempt to find their significant other often become rather discouraged and start to wonder if they are doing something wrong. One of the things that people get stressed out over is what to wear.


After all, there are so many options. People wonder whether to wear a dress or some other type of clothing. People who are going on a first date want to look cute, but not too cute. This is not something that is only a concern for women. Men worry about the same things too. They may not be as open about it, but when it comes to fashion for her and fashion for him, there are almost an equal number of questions when it comes to going on a first date.

In addition to wondering what to wear, the question of how to wear it also comes to mind. After all, it is a fact that some people simply look better in a certain article of clothing than do others. It really comes down to learning how to wear certain articles of clothing based on body type and the type of activity that is being planned. Unfortunately, not every individual can pull off wearing a tiny dress and stiletto heels, nor can every individual pull off wearing short shorts and a halter top. Having said that, an elegant ball gown is not something that suits every situation by a long shot. When it comes to men’s clothing, the options may be fewer but the nerves are usually about the same. Men usually struggle with things such as trying to decide whether to wear jeans or dress pants or what type of shirt to wear.


When it really comes down to it, there are a few guidelines that need to be considered when deciding what to wear on the first date. Of course, the goal is to attract the attention of the other individual and as such, the individual in question wants to choose clothing that shows some skin and that shows off any curves the person may have. However, it is important to remember that a person should not go overboard. It is important, especially on a first date, to strike a balance between showing some skin and showing an ability to be reserved enough to resist the temptation to show too much skin. In addition, the person has to make a decision about what type of clothing to choose based on where the first date will take place and the type of activity that is involved. For instance, dinner out at a fine dining facility will require a different type of attire then will going to a movie and eating a pizza afterward. It is important to keep these things in mind so that the right clothing can be chosen.

Another important thing to consider is the level of comfort that a certain article of clothing provides. Some people are willing to sacrifice comfort for appearance’s sake but first dates are stressful enough without adding clothing that is uncomfortable or so tight that movement of the body is restricted. Wearing shoes that are almost impossible to walk in will not help anything either. Instead of adding to the level of stress that is already present when going on a first date it is important to wear something that is both comfortable and stylish so that the focus can be placed on the date itself instead of the discomfort that is caused by clothing.


Learning how to choose the right clothing for person’s body type is one of the most difficult things that virtually any individual has to do. People that are very thin can often wear a wider selection of clothing than people who are slightly overweight. However, there is no reason that any individual of any body type cannot look their best. Learning how to use colors and accessories such as belts or slightly elevated heels to create the right appearance is vitally important. Typically, it is important for people that are slightly overweight to choose clothing that is comfortable and provides enough movement for them to be comfortable yet does not make them appear to be bigger than they really are.


Clothing can effectively change an individual’s personality. Clothing has the ability to create confidence and it has the ability to destroy it. Choosing the right clothing can make a person more outgoing and willing to try new things. The key is to find something that allows an individual to both look good and feel good at the same time. In truth, only a person’s reflection in the mirror and what they feel inside can determine what is really the right combination of clothing in any situation, including on a first date.
