Not sure what outfit to wear on that first date, as you’re meeting his parents, or when he wants to take you on a ‘surprise’ night out?
Fret not; you’re in the right hands. Here are some tips to dress right for those ‘first moments’ in your relationship.
First Date: You know the old adage, “you’ve only got one chance to make a first impression?” Well, that holds especially true on a first date with a new guy. Wear something sexy, flirty, and fun. Do not dress too provocatively, though. Don’t be afraid to show off your shape, just not in a very low-cut or bondage look. I suggest a button down silk shirt paired with a pencil skirt or a sexy pair of jeans.
Casual Get-Together: If he asks you to go watch a movie or watch a football game at the neighbourhood bar, you want to look the part while still maintaining your sense of style (no oversized team jersey. A NO-NO). A fabulous pair of jeans, great flat shoes and a tank top or fitted tee shirt always works.
Dinner or Night Out: Going on a dinner date? If he asks you to meet him at an undisclosed location for your next romantic encounter, he may not realize that he’s leaving you in a fashion lurch. Your best bet? That little black dress always works — you can dress it up or down.
Meeting His Parents: The stress of meeting your new man’s mom and dad is enough to handle, so there’s no need to waste time worrying about what you’ll wear. Just be yourself. You shouldn’t have to hide your personal style completely. It’s most important to wear what makes you feel most comfortable. Something simple and classic is best, but add sparkle or femininity with an interesting pattern. A bright knee length dress, minimal make up, jewellery and classic wedges never disappoints.
In the Bedroom: Fabulous lingerie for that first time is crucial. But what’s the right look? Black lace or trim worn under a flimsy camisole is always sexy and pretty. You don’t want something ripped out of the page of a sex catalog. And don’t make it complicated with too many clasps and hooks. The simpler the better.
