So the guy you’re feeling asks you out on a date. You’re really excited, a little nervous… and you have absolutely no idea of what to wear. For a first date there are some style rules that are worth mentioning: don’t go too sexy (men like a bit of a challenge, so save the bodycon for the second date); pick something comfortable; and lastly, don’t pile on the makeup — just a bit to enhance your natural beauty.
