Ah, a first date. Full of awkward conversations, nervous laughter, and happy butterflies flying in our stomachs. Hours are spent digging through closets, watching YouTube tutorials on “How to Perfectly Wing Your Eyeliner,” and attempting at least five different hair styles, all in search for the “perfect” look.
But…what is the perfect look?
Layer, layer, layer – if you are unsure on where the night will take you, come prepared for any event in one outfit.
Add Some Color
Bright splashes of color are the way to go for starters. Trends are awesome, but you don’t want to overdo it and appear like you’re having an identity crisis.
Know Your Body Type
Make sure to wear something that compliments your body type. Women always appear their best wearing something that fits properly. If you aren’t positive what type of outfit this entails, hire an image consultant.
Know Your Colors
Learn the colors that bring out your eyes and other features – it truly creates a “wow” effect, gives you a healthy glow, and makes you look “perfect.” Trust me!
Watch Your Wallet
Don’t go broke! Designer outfits can be tempting, but it’s easy to create a quick outfit for the night for less. Try Forever 21 or H&M – you’ll definitely find a full outfit for under $70! That being said, Forever 21 can look a bit tacky at times, so I recommend it mostly for jewelry and other accessories.
Wear a Dress
Dresses are a great choice, as long as they’re comfortable! Dresses can be casual, festive, fancy or anywhere in between when paired with jackets, shoes, and accessories.
If you’re unsure of the night’s itinerary I would recommend flats – your feet may thank you later.
Most importantly, no matter how much of a fashionista you are, have fun with yourself and relax. The rest will follow.
