After going out to dinner last night with the husband, I couldn’t help but overhear the oh-so-awkward and nerve wrecking convo going on at the table next to us. It was for sure to be a first date conversation, and it was simply confirmed after the waitress brought out a giant steak for the guy and of course a salad for the girl (that only happens on the first date…right?) So it got me thinking…

What DO YOU wear on a first date?

Being too trendy or coming across too sexy can give the wrong impression, as if you didn’t already know that. Needless to say choosing your outfit should be the only thing that’s easy! So here it goes..

4 tips on what to wear for a first date:

1. Keep it casual. If it’s dinner and a movie or some other casual event, don’t dress like you’re fine dining and heading to a Broadway show.¬† Being over dressed can be awkward, and do we really need more awkwardness on a first date? I think not.

2. Don’t be overly trendy. Unless your guy is into fashion, I wouldn’t suggest showing up in something ultra trendy. He probably won’t understand your fur coat or knee high boots. Tip: Wait a few more dates then pull out the big guns (a.k.a boots).

3. Don’t over do it. Over doing anything can be disastrous. Just because you can’t decide on what to wear, choosing to wear everything you own doesn’t make it right. Simple is better.

4. Just be yourself. Wearing something that screams you is a great way for him to get a sense of your unique personality! A scarf, necklace, or a hat are simple accessories that might just be an ice breaker.

There ya have it! Now that finding an outfit just became a little easier. You only have one more decision… ¬†Will it be a steak or salad?
