We’re in the middle of summer now, but some singles are just starting to date again. Finding the right outfit to make that terrific first impression in your online dating profile or on a first date is really important.
Our friends at Match.com polled some of their members to find out what they prefer seeing their date wearing and I’m tossing in some of my fashion favorites for both men and women for the season.
Do wear long hair in braids. It’s fun and flirty and not just for children anymore.
Don’t wear a low cut dress or top. There’s no need to show off your cleavage on a first date, unless you’re anxious to head to the bedroom.
Do wear white pants on a date. Take advantage of the clean feeling of bright white in the summer time.
Don’t wear flip flops. Men still like the look of a heel on a woman. Unless you’re taking a beach walk, wear a high-heeled open toe sandal.
Do wear a short skirt or dress. Short and sexy will never go out of style.
Do wear khaki’s. It’s simple and conservative. You can’t go wrong with this look combined with a polo shirt.
Don’t wear a Hawaiian shirt. Bright patterns are distracting and out-of-style.
Do wear aviator sunglasses. Women find this look sexy on an outdoor date. Remember when you go inside, take them off so she can glance at your eyes.
Don’t wear a Speedo. Never ever wear a Speedo or she’ll speed out of there faster than you can imagine. Try wearing conservative swimsuit or shorts if you’re headed to the beach.
Do wear a vee neck tee shirt or cardian sweater. This casual look for the summer may make her eyes melt.
Do you have a favorite summer fashion look? Your comments and suggestions are always welcome.
