A dinner date, a trip to the theatre, a party – whatever kind of special evening out you have planned, the question remains the same: what do I wear? Follow this guide to find your dream looks and avoid wardrobe disasters. Whether you have bagged a date with your dream guy on a website such as www.eharmony.co.uk or are going on a blind date arranged by friends, first impressions count. Here are our top three dream looks… Polka dot dress A good twist on the LBD, a black dress with white polka dots combines playfulness with sophistication. Team it with a faux-fur stole for a scent of Parisian allure and make sure it’s tight in all the right places or skims the body to add a touch of mystery.
Striped jeans Men love women who look good without trying too hard, so a tight pair of jeans to show off your figure is bound to be a hit. Wear this season’s skinny striped denim for a twist on traditional styles. The vertical lines will slim your figure, giving the illusion of long, lean legs. Perfect! Pencil skirt Forget the mini and wear something more demure. A tight pencil skirt with heels leaves something to the imagination, but reveals a silhouette sure to turn him on. Get creative with one of this season’s pussy-bow blouses to complete your look. Of course, dressing up to impress your man is also a test of your compatibility. Shared values and beliefs can often be identified through how we present ourselves, so if you met through online Christian dating or have cultural affinities, this may be reflected in what you both wear. And for the outfits sure to horrify your date before you’ve even said hello? Well, here are a few of the fashion disasters that will make men flinch… Harem pants Yes, we all know that these upmarket tracksuit pants are seriously comfy, but they do look kind of stupid. So ditch the slouch and step into a pair of trousers that flatter your figure rather than swamp it! Headbands The 70s are back, but wrapping your head in a garish headband either makes you look like a mushroom head or slightly obsessive as you fiddle with your hair all night. A clean and shiny barnet that he can run his hands through oozes attractiveness, so lay off uptight hairdos and relax.
Over-sized sunglasses Why hide yourself under a huge pair of dark glasses when going on a date? Yes, it might be sunny, but he wants to see your face and not freak out because a giant bug has taken the place of his new girlfriend!
