Here's how you get it right.
I should probably begin with a disclaimer: I've had the same boyfriend for several years, so "what to wear on a first date" isn't something I've given much thought to lately.
This post was actually inspired by an email I got from a reader, who asked what I would wear on a first date if I wanted to look "nice" without looking like I've tried at all.
Here's one I prepared earlier... plus some general do's and don'ts for date night dressing.
Wear bodycon. It leaves nothing to the imagination, and no room for dessert.
Wear all white. Too many things can go wrong. Just don't do it to yourself.
Wear ridiculous heels. The higher the heel, the harder you look like you're trying.
Wear red lipstick. It's intimidating, and high maintenance.
Wear the pants. You know how people instantly look 50% more intelligent when they put glasses on? Well I think it's the same for women in pants. It shows you mean business.
Apply the 50/50 rule. If you're going for bare shoulders, cover-up on the bottom, and vice versa.
Wear your hair up. It says "I woke up like this".
Show-off your décolletage. It looks good across the table.
