January is over now, and all some of us can think about is Valentines Day and may be a first date. First dates can be terrifying! And us girls, first thing we think about is our outfit. Planning your outfit should be fun and most exciting experience.
Follow these 5 simple rules on how to dress for your next date, and you never know you could be planning your wedding. At the very least you’ll figure out the formula on how to look amazing, maintain your personal style, and be comfortable. Just remember …Keep it Simple!
Well, trends are all good and fine, however Avoid Trends! Men usually do not dig some of our Trends anyway, and to be honest some of them could be too much for a first date, even for us women. Stick to your personal style and be comfortable. We are most beautiful when we are confident and comfortable ( I am not talking about onesie or track suit though). Wear something feminine and well fitting , you do not want to be readjusting your top the whole evening, for example.

2. Comfort is must.
My suggestion is ,if you are not good with your heels , do not wear them ! So many of different shoe styles are available, heals are not essentials. In fact, it is probably better stick to more casual style…sort of ” I didn`t try too hard” style.
3. Be sexy, but don’t give it all away.
You don’t want to walk in to the club or restaurateur like Jessica Rabbit on a first date. However, but you don’t have to dress like a nun either. Something between sexy and boring is a slip dress, but tone it down with casual accessories, or a LBD with no accessories, keep it simple.

4. Do not over-complicate it .
Much like life itself, you don’t want to overthink it and complicate your outfit. You can even go straight to your date from the office in this outfit—just leave your jacket at the office. The elevated details on the simplest of work wear—a tank and a black skirt—is just the ticket to go from the board room to happy hour.

5. If you are not sure, wear you favourite things.
If you can’t decide what to pick, just wear your absolute favourite items. You’ll feel more confident in something you already know and love. And at the moment , I just love wrap dresses, in fact, they should be must haves on everyone. Figure flattering, comfortable, feminine, sexy and not over-complicated.
Whatever you decide to wear, wear it with STYLE …. confidence is a KEY!
