Wearing the right dress is one of the most important dating tips you can focus on. Going with a black mini dress or a casual t-shirt and jeans can be confusing for most girls. Now some women feel like they can pull off jeggings on a date, others somehow go into dress panic in trying to impress someone on a first date. Now just imagine if it was also a blind date.

Relax!

Here are tips on what to wear on your first date.

Scope the Venue – Blend or Contrast with your Dress

If you’re meeting a stranger, then it’s most likely you won’t be able to know if he or she has a specific color or theme preference. This is where you can use the venue for your date to your advantage. You can check the place online just to see the setup. Then you can decide whether if you’d like to contrast or blend with the surroundings so that your date will notice you better.

Informal settings, it’s advice to be a bit subtler and blend more with the surroundings. Five-star restaurants tend to have dark, muted colors and it goes well with formal dresses. You can then subtly grab the attention of your date to your face with either earrings, necklaces, make-up or your hair or a combination of one or two any of the mentioned. The formal setting is often silent which allows your date to focus more on you, so you don’t need a dress that is too contrasting.

On the other hand, dates in public places like fairs, theme parks, and zoos have a lot of distractions. If you wear something subtle, then your date might not notice you for long. Now you don’t have to go overboard. This just means you must choose a color scheme that will stand out from the venue. Example, in a zoo you will have a lot of plants, dark iron cages, and concrete. You can choose a color scheme with t-shirts to make yourself pop out during the casual date.

Dressing for Comfort

Comfort is also an important factor in choosing your dress. If you want to know how to impress on your first date, be comfortable. Choose clothes that you won’t be able to notice during the date. Now it’s for your benefit and not your date, because if you’re uncomfortable with what you’re wearing, then your face will show it. And trying to scratch an itch during a date could be a turn-off. While you’re trying to attract your date, you don’t want to spend it being conscious if your dress is about to fall off, or your heels are killing you. Dress to impress but be comfortable at the same time.

Don’t Over Accessorize

Avoid too many accessories when going out on dates. The urge to deck yourself out with jewelry can be strong. Your date wants to take you out, not a jewelry catalog. In fact, it’s not safe to be decked out with accessories on a first date especially with a stranger. You’ll be more comfortable with a couple of accessories just to accentuate your features and your dress.

Your date is the runway ramp or red carpet. So, dress because you want to be presentable and because you want to elicit a favorable response with your date. What to know more? Read up on fashion tips, make-up and more with theeverygirl.com!
