First dates are stressful, especially if they’re on Valentine’s Day and you’re the kind of Singaporean fashionista who wants to find the perfect date outfit. To make getting ready that little bit easier, we’ve compiled a few fashion dress code regulations to note. Whether they’re from personal experiences (yes, I did wear rainboot’s to a date and no he didn’t think they were cool even if Kate Moss was wearing them on the reg) to suggestions which we think could trick the result of your date before it’s even started.
These are our three fashion dating rules.
Leave the heels at home.
There are so many options of shoe out there that a first date really isn’t the time to test out those new heels you bought. Opt for something a little comfier and safer, you want to be able to walk next to the guy and not be hobbling or walking super slowly because of your shoes. However, coming from experience, this is also not the time to wear a shoe which is too practical or ‘fashion-forward’ (Boys don’t always get fashion so let’s not confuse them straight away) leave the sneakers and platform sandals to one side and instead go for a wedge heel, kitten heel or even a chic mule.
Your sexiest underwear
Yes I know it’s going against traditional dating rules but by wearing your sexiest underwear you’ll not only be putting even more pressure on yourself for the date to go well, but let’s be honest our really sexy underwear isn’t the comfiest, especially in the Singaporean heat where a lot of lace in certain places can cause all sorts of trouble. Instead, keep it in your bag (in a side pocket, you don’t want it falling out on the street by accident) and then you can quickly change in the toilets if you think you’ll need it.
Uncomfortably sexy outfits
Let’s be frank, having to pull down your dress every few minutes or constantly engaging your abs because your outfit is super tight isn’t sexy. If you’re unsure about your outfit, then wear it for 10 minutes as you do something around the house, you’ll quickly know if its a winner or not.
