Your palms are sweaty, knees weak, arms are heavy. Sound familiar? Nope, I’m not talking about Eminem’s theme song from the movie 8 Mile. But rather, that dreaded feeling that most of us get when you’re about to go on a first date with someone new.
For a lot of women, planning what to wear can be almost as nerve-racking as the date itself. You’re trying to impress someone with your dazzling wit and personality and on top of that, hope that your outfit will be the physical manifestation of that.
And while some of us cope by trying on every single outfit in our wardrobes (only to change our minds at the last minute), the rest of us end up frantically texting our group chats and crowdsourcing ideas on what makes the best outfit.
But here’s the tea: there is no perfect outfit. At least according to these women.
We speak to them on the outfits they wear to feel sexiest in whenever they’re on a first date—and unsurprisingly, it’s not always just about bearing skin (but if that’s your thing, power to you as well). Consider us your crowdsourced resource. You’re welcome.
Scroll through to see what these women have to say, and hopefully, you’ll be able to get some ideas from them as well.
