What Your Dating Wardrobe Says About You

Adrienne Longhurst Adrienne Longhurst • 6/12/15

Who doesn’t like to look their best on a date? I mean, if the point of dating is to spend time with someone you’re attracted to in hopes of forming some kind of lasting connection, of course you’re going to put your best self forward. But are you sure that’s what you’re doing? What does your dating wardrobe say about you?

Wanting to find someone who loves your for all of your amazing qualities is a given, but before they actually get to know you, they’ll base a lot of what they think and feel about you on what they see. That includes your clothes.

What kind of message are you trying to send to the men you date? How do you want to be perceived? You know that old saying, “If it walks like a duck….” Well, that will almost always ring true in dating, and how you look will often label who you are, whether it’s true or not.

Show off your best assets.

A lot of women make the mistake of going a little overboard on the look they’re trying to achieve when out on a date. Of course we want the guy we’re dating to find us sexy, but wearing your most revealing outfit isn’t the way to go. As a matter of fact, men have reported revealing outfits to be a bit of a turn-off.

Looking sexy doesn’t require a lot of skin, big hair or more makeup than you would normally feel comfortable wearing but, rather, the confidence to show off your best assets without feeling like you have to try too hard. If you want to show some leg, then keep the girls a little more concealed. If you love your decolletage, then show it off without clingy fabrics and a miniskirt that would make Snooki proud.

Make it seem effortless.

Aim for effortless beauty when you go out on a date. Just remember there’s a fine line between effortless and schleppy. You want to look like it doesn’t take much to make you look your best, not like you don’t care how you look! A guy definitely wants to know a woman takes pride in herself and she is interested enough to want to look nice for their date.

Remember that confidence is sexy, and feeling good about yourself means not having to rely on too much or too little of anything to impress someone.
