This guy that I've been talking to and flirting with for a couple weeks has finally asked me out. He's taking me to this carnival in our town, but I have no idea what to wear. I can go shopping before the date, and I don't really have a budget if that helps.
What would be the perfect first date at a carnival outfit? Ladies, what would you wear? Guys, what would you wanna see on a girl? Thanks so much!

Wear something that makes you stand out but also make sure you feel comfortable too.

The first date has to be one of the trickiest occasions to dress for. One fashion faux pas, no matter how small, could mean you won’t get a second chance but it’s not always easy to tell the difference between a wardrobe malfunction and a wardrobe winner, especially if there’s nobody around to run your ideas past. So before you step out in your six inch stilettos, head into town in leather trousers or rock a brave eye make-up craze, think carefully.
1. Glam’ doesn’t always equal ‘goddess’
When it comes to that first date outfit, make sure you feel comfortable, be yourself and choose an ensemble that reflects your personality. But remember, first impressions count, especially on a blind date, so it’s important that you don’t overdo it. And don’t always assume that spending an extortionate amount of money on an outfit will turn you into an instant goddess. That well known saying, ‘money can’t buy style’, is so true.
2. There’s a time and a place for everything
Opting for comfortable clothing is important but of course, it depends on where your date plans to take you. Throwing on a pair of jeans, a chunky knit and ballet pumps might be OK for a cinema date, pub lunch or ten pin bowling but they certainly won’t cut the mustard if you’re planning on going to the opera, a swish restaurant or as his plus one to the company Christmas party.
3. Don’t send out the wrong message
We’re not talking text messages here – we’re talking about flashing the flesh. Too much leg and cleavage on display and you’ll come across as a hussy (that’s not a good thing, by the way). But cover up too much (i.e. wear a suit) and you could turn the date into a business meeting or an interview. It’s all about finding the right balance. Wardrobe staple, the little black dress (LBD), is always a safe bet, provided its neckline doesn’t plunge too far and the hemline isn’t too high. Strapless dresses may send out the wrong signals too so cover up with a cute cardigan.
What would you think if your (female) date turned up wearing a cheek-skimming mini skirt? Here’s what the boys said:
Konnour via GirlsAskGuys.com: ”Nothing wrong with it. It’s hot! The behavior is what determines is the girl “easy” or not instead of the way she dresses. If she got a good body – why hide it?”
handsomejackk via GirlsAskGuys.com: “It would be fine.”
4. Figure out what’s hot and what’s not
We’re all different, so what floats one man’s boat may give another that sinking feeling. So how on earth are we supposed to know what’s considered ‘acceptable’ and what kind of attire is guaranteed to send out the wrong signals? Well, the trick is to dress to impress but don’t go OTT. Put yourself in a bloke’s shoes (but not literally). What would you want to see your female date in? Harem pants don’t tend to go do0
