You’re single and dating…oh joy! First, congratulations on having the courage to try again. Second, you can do this. You only get one shot at making a first impression. You may be thinking, “If they get to know the real me, it shouldn’t matter what I wear.”

If you show up looking like you just raided the Walmart sales rack, wearing the same black dress or suit you wore when you rang in the new millennium, or dressed inappropriately for the date, you will most likely be dismissed as a potential mate faster than you can spell Mississippi. Yes, it’s sad but true!

Keeping in mind these simple three tips will make sure you are dressed for dating success!

Three Questions to Ask Before You Leave the House

  • 1. Is my wardrobe choice inviting? Flirty colors on our ladies is key! Shades of red are scientifically proven to attract a man’s attention more than any other color. If you’re not into red choose darker shades of pink like magenta. Guys, are you in a stuffy black business suit? Grab a soft cashmere sweater in a navy or dark gray instead. Giving a warm “come get to know me” vibe will help ease the both of you.
  • 2. What does my wardrobe say about me? When dressing for a date give off the same vibe as the amazing person you want to attract. Portraying yourself in a demure and trustworthy fashion, no matter what the occasion, will only increase your chances of having a great date. If you want to be treated like a lady or a real man, dress like one. Ladies, make sure you’re accentuating your best asset and only one. Don’t show too much skin. If you are showing your legs make sure you have a modest neckline. Men, please don’t pull anything from the hamper. Make sure your clothes are clean, ironed and polished. Trust me, she notices! When you place more value on yourself, others will notice and treat you with more respect. Try getting a few new pieces that you just wear for dates. Over time, colors and fabric lose their vibrancy. A short shopping trip to buy a few fresh dating essentials is recommended.
  • 3. Where are we going? Am I going to be comfortable? Gentlemen, did you tell your date where you are taking her? Nothing is worse than dressing for the wrong venue. You don’t want to find yourself or your date in heels and a dress hanging out in a dive bar, overdressed at a barbecue, under-dressed at a formal occasion or freezing cold in a romantic boat ride with no jacket. She will be so uncomfortable and in return you will be feel like you failed.

By answering these questions you can get your mind off your attire and focus on your date. When you make fashionably educated choices you will be stylin’ in chicness, comfort, and confidence!
