Dating is an adventure. You never know how it’s going to end. Sometimes a first date turns into a wonderful relationship full of love and laughter. Other times a first date has promise, but then it all fizzles out by the third date. At least if you have a second date fixed, there is chemistry and there is potential. So how should you dress for date number two? Read on to find some date fashion tips for your first and second date 😉
First Date Fashion Tips
Working out what to wear for a first date is relatively easy. At this point in the process, your expectations are low, so dressing up to the nines is fairly pointless. It is usually better to keep it casual for a first date, as you might dislike the other person on sight or decide their annoying mannerisms are too much to bear after five minutes. For this reason, stick to jeans or a low-key dress for a first date. That way you haven’t expended too much effort and if it all goes horribly wrong, you won’t feel as if you have wasted your time.
Don’t Jump the Gun
Dressing for a second date is a lot harder. Your expectations are higher. You have already met the person and there were sparks, so you want this date to go well. In today’s dating world, we tend to move fast when we meet someone we like, using texting, sexting and video chat to build a sense of intimacy, even if we know very little about that person.
If you are a romantic type, you may well have steered clear of any sexy flirting or shameless sexting. There is nothing wrong with any of that, but sexy chat has a time and a place and if you want the relationship to progress to something lasting, it is better to spend time getting to know the real person, as opposed to their vital statistics and sexual preferences. You can always practice sexting through platforms like Arousr and make use of it once you get to know each other better.
The Difference between Romantic and Sexy
When it comes to dressing for a second date, you should try to avoid wearing anything too overtly sexy. You don’t want to come across as a prude, but nor do you want to give the goods away for free. Romance is more Barbara Cartland and less Fifty Shades of Grey. Think tantalisingly chaste rather than S&M.
A nice restaurant is a popular second date venue, as it gives you both a chance to get to know each other better over good food, fine wine and candlelight. This is your chance to dress up and show off your legs. Wear a pretty dress and accessorise it with sexy heels, some statement jewellery and a cute bag. Show off your figure, but stay away from low cut dresses or skirts that are too short. The idea is to create a romantic vibe, not look as if you are setting your stall out for business.
With a bit of luck, the chemistry you found on the first date will heat up by the end of the second date. If so, steal a kiss and make plans for date three!
