Will we hit it off?
What do I do if there’s a lull in conversation?
What should I wear?!
While you can’t do much to answer the first two questions, figuring out what to wear doesn’t need to cause a panic, though it can be a little trickier in the sunny days.
Read on to learn how to do just that.
Stay true to you.
While you may be tempted to go out and buy a new outfit, a first 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.

Dress for your body type
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.
Switch up your office look.
If you do go straight from work, choose an outfit that can transition from the office to a casual look this way, even if you do talk about your jobs, you won’t have work stress on the brain the whole night.
Choose a color or outfit you’ve been complimented on before
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 date.
It’s all about balance. It’s that alluring mixture of conservativeness and sex appeal. 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.
