Is there anything more exciting than a first (or third, tenth, or fiftieth) date?
Whether you’ve just met someone cool who’s taking you out for the first time, or you’ve been dating for years and you’re hitting the town with gusto, it’s a pretty safe bet that we all want to look awesome, while feeling totally comfortable. And while, sure, what we wear isn’t the most important of part of a date, let’s be honest: Most of our pre-date efforts invariably go toward choosing the perfect outfit.
While having options when it comes to date dressing is usually a plus, on big nights it can also be extremely confusing: Are you going to wear a dress, a skirt, or pants? How dressy to too dressy? Are ripped jeans ever okay?—you get the picture.
