Did you just score yourself a first date from a chance meeting, a mutual friend or perhaps even an app (no judgement you Tinder-ers)? In any case, you never know when a new cutie is going to pop up and ask you out – and when that happens, you need to be prepared…stylistically speaking.
Dressing yourself for any kind of event can be difficult, but trying to decide what to wear on a first date can be even trickier. For most, it’s a mad scramble of costume changes after costume changes looking for the right thing in your closet, only to end up feeling like you still have nothing to wear. Am I right? Well don’t you fret my dears, that’s why you have us!

Your first impression needs to be entirely you. A first date is usually nerve-wracking which is why it’s important to wear what makes you feel comfortable and confident. Don’t feel like you have to over do it to impress someone, just do you. Regardless what look you have on, when you feel good you’ll look good, guaranteed. Confidence is half the battle and that’s what makes it so vital that you feel like yourself and let cupid do all the dirty work.
