How to dress for the first Tinder date
It's your first date with that guy on Tinder and you want to make a great impression. But how?
So he finally messaged you confirming your date. As much as I hate to say it, first impressions really do count. You are excited to look attractive and beautiful at the same time. Do you want to make a beautiful first impression? O My. What dress should I wear for my first Tinder date?
You definitely want to gauge your first date based on the vibe of the location you pick. Is it more casual? Will you be outside going for a walk? Or is it more dressy like a nice hotel lobby bar? There are so many different types of first dates to consider your outfit of choice. But above all it’s about self-confidence.
While you may be tempted to go out and buy a new outfit, a first Tinder date is not the time to test drive a new look. Your best bet is to stick with something you already own and feel great in.
The best styling advice for any date is to be yourself. Style is a representation of who you are and first dates – or any dates for that matter – are about owning what makes you unique.
Let the location and planned activity guide you in choosing what to wear. Going for a day date to a museum? Choose something easy, like a sundress and sneakers or jeans and a cute top. Dinner plans? This is the time to wear something on the sexier side, if you want. But whatever you choose, make sure it’s comfortable. (How can you concentrate on getting to know your Tinder date if you’re fidgeting with an ill-fitting skirt or too-tight jeans the whole time?)
Comfortable doesn’t mean boxy, though. Clothes that are tailored to your body type tend to look best. Women who feel self-conscious or find they don’t like the way clothes “cling” against their skin often wear bigger styles in an attempt to conceal the parts they don’t like. Instead, considering wearing something that flatters your body type and accentuates the parts of your body you feel confident in. You can still go for something loose and comfortable, of course, but baggy isn’t the same as shapeless.
If you do go straight from work, choose an outfit that can transition from the office to happy hour with just a few tweaks, this way, even if you do talk about your jobs, you won’t have work stress on the brain the whole night. A simple skirt, camisole, and blazer is a great choice – all you have to do is remove the blazer and you’re ready to go!
Is there an outfit you get praised for every time you wear it? Or a shade that makes you glow? That’s what you should choose for a first Tinder date. For example, if you wear a shorter skirt, consider pairing it with a more covered top. And if you go with something low cut, try it with a maxi skirt or jeans.” At the end of the day though, just feel good about yourself.
What’s more important than a sexy dress on Tinder date night? Sexy lingerie! Whether it’s a blind date or a romantic evening at home, the right intimates are essential! From showing off beautiful bra straps to tantalizing in a racy teddy – we tell you how to express your love (or tease your man) using sexy lingerie!
First dates are such special things: the uncertainty, the excitement, the day-dreaming. Is this person going to be ‘the one’, or ‘just one of those ones’? Is this going to be a funny joke later when hitting up the gals thread tomorrow, or – and you never quite know – the Tinder date you look back on as the evening your love journey began.
Your first date underwear whether it is revealed or not, it should be a statement of you!
So what should you wear underneath your outfit? A simple bra and pantie set will do you just fine. Don’t stress about whether or not they match — honestly, your partner will probably be focused on other things.
Admittedly, the exception to these guidelines is if you’re really trying to wow your partner and opt for a garter or other sexy lingerie. Do you, girl, but practice getting out of that contraption — having to solve a Mensa puzzle before you get get busy might put a damper on things.
As the previous points allude to, it’s best to wear clothing that comes off easily if you’re planning to shed it all with your lover. Skip the complicated outfits and getups with several layers — opt for clothing that’s relatively easy to get on and off.
What are you waiting for? Get out there and consummate your love! Have fun, and be safe!
