Dressing for How to Ruin a First Date…

You met the cute guy.  Maybe the two of you first met at the fun and hip online dating website with the cool new app over at Facebook.  The two of you flirted online.  You exchanged messages and have now successfully navigated to where you two are meeting for your first date.  You might be feeling excited.  Maybe your breath is even catching a little bit in fun first date anticipation of the two of you meeting.


Now the all important question of “What shall I wear for the first date to make it great?”   Don’t fall victim of the Top 3 Most Common First Date Dreadful Dressing Disaster for Single Women.  Instead read this article to help you to dress for your first date success!


Number 1 Top Common First Date Dreadful Dressing Disasters of Women: Dressing Too Casually

First Date Dressing

From single guys to married men, when they see you arriving for the dinner date, nothing says “I don’t care” better than a single woman wearing just jeans and a t-shirt for a first date.

Your too casual first date clothes scream to others, “I don’t want to impress you or myself.  I couldn’t be bothered to make an effort.”

If you make this dire dressing disaster, then just don’t expect him to ask you out for a second date.  Miss 2Casual just gets asked for a First Date only.


Number 2 Top Common First Date Dreadful Dressing Disasters of Women: Dressing Like a Prude

If you are wearing a secular equivalent of a burkah, namely you are not a conservative Muslim and yet are dressing like one, then something is off.  Muslim single ladies who are dressing very modestly are typically chaperoned or the first meeting either is likely arranged by your families and the two of you are meeting under their watchful eyes as well.


Short of that, what are the rest of you single ladies doing wearing baggy loose, high necked clothes that completely cover up your having a female figure?  Your conservative Muslim lady example might be very covered up.  But her clothes and the patterns on the fabrics she is wearing are quite often very feminine.  Remember, guys are visually stimulated.  You want to blend looking visually appealing and alluring with your being classy.  That means eschew the tent dress of this Miss Prude and instead wear something feminine and visually attractive.


Number 3 Top Common First Date Dreadful Dressing Disasters of Women: Dressing Too Grunge

Grunge dressing went out of style more than a decade ago.  What I am talking about is not a fashion image style which is out-dated.  I’ve seen single women show up wearing their workout wear after their workout.  Their hair is somewhat disheveled and unkempt.  Their clothes are crumpled.  And this is what they think is acceptable to wear to a first date!  This look is different than that of her too-casual, “I don’t care” attitudinal dressing counterpart.  Miss Grunge really has no clue how to clean up and dress nicely.  Miss 2Casual dresses like she does because she has an attitude of not caring to make an effort to impress her date.


Remember, when you’re a single woman dressing to meet your date for your First Date, avoid looking like Miss 2Casual, Miss Prude, and Miss Grunge.


Instead, dress to look and feel your best, both for the sake of your date who has asked you out and is taking you out and for your own sake of feeling your very best.  When you dress to feel your best, you look great and increase your likelihood for the guy to ask you out for a second date.

    Most of the comments I hear are about the guys being too casual, or giving the impression that they could care less. Is it more or less a problem on both sides ?
    I haven’t dated in a long time but I am still stunned when I hear the guy expects her to pay. Sorry, I find that just inexcusable.
    Be Well.

    Hi JC, Thank you for stopping by and commenting at my blog and joining in on the conversation. Oh yes indeed, I will be addressing the whole “Dutch Treat” which is an oxymoron if I ever heard one about splitting the check for early dates. Forthcoming articles, for sure! – Happy Dating and Relationships, April Braswell

    in a perfect world maybe both parties should show up for their first 10 dates wearing a burkah so that character and personality are highlighted rather than the physical?

  • Sonya Lenzo May 16, 2012, 7:41 PM

    You can apparently dress up too much as well. I wore my typical first date outfit of a skirt and sweater and was criticized for being overdressed.

    I would make sure I wore my favorite color and dress appropriately for the type of place we were going to. There are ways to dress casually and feminine at the same time.

    What types of outfits would you suggest for a first date? I get what NOT to wear, but what would be examples of good things to wear?

    I was always under the impression that it was only guys who dressed badly for first dates. It seems I was wrong!

    I can’t believe anyone would make any of these first date wardrobe decisions! But, what may seem like common sense to some is completely foreign to others I guess. Number 3 gets me the most. I can’t imagine anyone going on a first date in their workout clothes. I’m glad you put this in writing just in case anyone would even consider it, hopefully now they know better!

    I would elect something I feel comfortable in and depending on the date, business casual to a dress. What do you think, April?

  • Michael D Walker May 17, 2012, 10:02 AM

    Sadly there are people who do need to know what NOT to wear on a first date. Years ago I had a first date who showed up wearing cut-off jeans and a tank top. I kid you not.

    any advise about what to wear on a first date? There are many unknowns and only one equation.

  • Kevin Hogan May 17, 2012, 1:16 PM

    I agree that these are three don’ts for women, and, as Scott said, will be waiting for the one concerning men.

  • Bryan May 17, 2012, 2:05 PM

    I agree with all the above…Grunge would turn me off quick, as would the too casual..the prude …prob but it depend on the personality more…great advice again April! You are the one to turn to for dating advice.

  • What about the other side … over dressing; the Coach purse, the Rolex, etc. .. (poor insecure little thing).
