"I wanted to get dressed up for you"

I'm going on my first big date with this guy I REALLY like.

this is what I want to wear (dress on the left):


he hasn't specified where we're going, so GUYS would you rather your girl look like this even for the cafe or a movie, or is jeans good enough?


PS; does this outfit make me look like a slut, because I'm not

PS; I'm her build, and I have the same style/color hair
*we've gone on dates, but this is the first one where we're going to get more intimate*

  • It doesn't make you look like a slut at all. If anything, fashion conscious and most guys appreciate that in a girl.

    Now, wearing that on a first date may be a little tricky. I don't know about this guy that you like but most of my friends and I don't like something as laid back as a movie for example. We like something engaging that both the girl and I would have fun in. if you wanna be safe, think of yourself in the guy's point of view, how do you think he sees you? If he's creative enough, he'll probably think of a date that'll match what he thinks of you. Besides, I think the dress is too gorgeous for a movie or coffee, he might think you're trying too hard.

  • Jeans are better, more intimate, more approachable.

    With that dress, you're advertising. You're saying (to your date) that you're on the prowl.

    Dressing up means different things to women and men. There is a great opportunity for mis-communication in the messages that pass between you.

    I'd have to agree with your comment about slutty.


  • I'd recommend dressing a teensy bit nicer than you normally dress when you are around the guy. If you normally dress in a similar manner to the girl in the picture, then I think it'd be fine if you went ahead and dressed like that, because the guy would know that you are normally into fancy fashion stuff. If you normally wear a shirt and jeans, I'd stick with something like that, or maybe a simple dress.

  • nah. the boots on the model make it look slutty. just wear little less in the shoe area of the outfit and it shouldnt look too slutty

  • whats with that dress?

    i've seen that dress too many times on here


What Girls Said 2

  • Okay, just my opinion but the outfit might say "high maintenance" more than anything. It looks expensive, you'd probably be over-dressed for the date and that could make him uncomfortable (guys have fashion feelings, too!). Uncomforable feelings are what you want to avoid on a first date! After his initial "woah, she's gorgeous" reaction it could get him thinking that maybe you're not quite as down to earth or "right" for him as he originally thought.

    However, if he takes you to his corporate holiday party, it would most likely be appropriate attire for that type of venue. I'd wait and see where he wants to go before buying the dress.

    Let me say that if you want to appear classy, most men find a pair of nice slacks, kitten heels and a dressier shirt quite appealing. (Like The Editor pants at Express. They often have the Editor cut in a fancy denim fabric that you can dress up and down.) Often times this will send the impression that you can take care of yourself, you are independent and someone worth getting to know. You're on the right track but if you want to slightly over-dress I'd go in the 'professional' direction instead of the 'prom-ready' direction. Gorgeous threads, though!

  • It's not slutty but it's a bit much for the first date. Wear jeans and a cute top. Save that for another event.
