No More Socks and Sandals: How to Knock Your First Date Outfit Out of the Park


There are very few things that can be as anxiety provoking as first dates, especially when you’re meeting someone with whom you have only had online interaction. You want to make a good first impression appearance wise, and with your personality – or, at least, that should be the goal.

It is common knowledge that when you look and feel your best, other people sense it, and are likely to respond to you in a good way. Want to make sure you knock your first-date outfit of the park? Here are a few simple pointers to help you slay.

1. Be yourself.

Just because your date has tattoos and piercings in their display picture doesn’t mean you should ditch your J. Crew wardrobe for some black lipstick, a chain mail t-shirt and a bunch of temporary tats. Your date agreed to go out with you based on what they already saw in your profile and conversations. So, just be yourself when it comes to your wardrobe choices. The last thing you want is to look like you purchased your first date outfit from Googie Rene’s Partially Damaged Halloween Costume Discount Basement.
