Monday Man-Day: First Date Dress Code
Another request for Monday Man-Day was what girls should wear on a first date. What do guys really like to see us in? Do you go understated or try to wear your most stylish get up? Seriously we have the hardest lives.
There are tons of factors that go into the first date outfit decision. Are you going to a casual or a nice restaurant? Are you seeing a movie? Will you be walking much? Are you really interested in this guy? What do you think he’d like to see? So here are some common options:
1. The Girl Next Door
Jeans and a cute top is hard to mess up. It’s generally what I would wear on a first date because I’ve never gone anywhere too fancy. I feel most comfortable in this type of outfit and it’s pretty reflective of my normal style.
2. The Sundress
Guys love Sundresses. At Notre Dame guys just begged for spring to come to girls would start wearing dresses again. If you’re going somewhere relaxed and fun (and warm!) this is a great option I think.
3. The Trendy
If you’re into fashion, wearing your favorite new outfit could make you feel confident and sexy. It’s a risk though because guys don’t always “get” the trends.
4. The Fancy Schmancy
Going out to a nice dinner or swanky club? You could show in dressed to the nines and ready for a night on the town. The risk here is going overboard and having the guy maybe think you’re high maintenance or showing too much for a first date. Alternatively, he could be a huge fan of the amount you’re showing:)
