Dating: Top Ten things Guys hate to see you wear

When it comes to the first date, no one puts in quite so much effort as the female of the party. The guys may just throw on a nice pair of jeans, their smartest shoes and a freshly ironed shirt, but the girls have a much tougher time of things.

Not only must you get the outfit right from a hundred and one that you may have already picked out of your closet, but you must also pair this outfit with shoes, accessories, and that is before you even begin to think about the sheer amount of date possibilities and the appropriate different kinds of outfits there are to choose from!

Thankfully, we have devised a cunning list of the top ten things that men would not like to see you wear on a first date:

1. Thigh high boots. Yes, all men love an “easy” looking girl; no they don’t want to look like Richard Gere out of “Pretty Woman”! You are not starring in a porn film; there is no need to wear thigh high boots.

2. Your work uniform. Nothing says “I’ve put absolutely no effort into this at all” than wearing your work uniform. If you don’t have time to go home and get changed after work, at least have the common sense to take something simple to slip into!

3. Track pants. In all fairness, unless you are going to the gym, you should never wear track pants in public and even more so when you are on a first date. This is unacceptable – you wouldn’t let the guys wear track pants, so don’t think you can get away with it, no matter how cute you think your butt looks.

4. Inappropriate clothing. You wouldn’t wear a little black dress and stilettos for a lunchtime picnic in the park. Also, you wouldn’t wear denim shorts and flip flops to a nice, five star restaurant. Ask where you are going and be honest – tell the guy you are trying to pick an outfit and knowing where the two of you are heading would come in useful. If he doesn’t want to tell you, he will simply guide you in the right direction of a suitable outfit, which more often than not gives the game away anyway.

5. For those short guys out there – don’t wear skyscraper heels. It is embarrassing for a guy to appear shorter than his date, and at the same time, you don’t want to feel like a towering monster. If in doubt, wear smaller heels.

6. Too much makeup. No one likes an orange girl that looks as if they have rolled around in a bag of Cheetos. If you appear orange, you can see foundation lines around your face, or you can actually see the pores clogged up with powder, there is a good chance that you are wearing too much makeup. You may think more is better but just imagine if you spent the night at his after an amazing first date – how are you going to get rid of all that makeup when it is smeared across your face in the morning?

7. Don’t take a large bag with you. He is just going to think that you have packed an overnight bag, and that will make you look too forward and too easy. Take a small bag out with you and have just the essentials. You will be amazing at how little you can pack and yet still be prepared for the awkward morning after at the same time!

8. Ripped clothes are a massive no-no. Would you want a guy to turn up in scruffy ripped jeans? No? We didn’t think so. Make sure that you do a complete up-and-down check before you leave the house to make sure that there are no tears, rips, threadbare bits or stains on your clothes. You are not a homeless person; there is no need to dress like one.

9. Clothing that is too tight – well this goes without saying really. If you are not the skinniest girl in the world, you will just look ridiculous, and even if you are skinny, you will just look cheap.

10. Too many designer clothes make you look high maintenance. Go with one or two designer pieces – you don’t want to intimidate the poor guy, especially if his bank balance cannot compare to your own.
