Tips for choosing your date outfit

  • The most important thing is to choose something you feel good in. Being uncomfortable for the entire night is a recipe for disaster.
  • Match your outfit to your date, so no ball gowns to a beach picnic or thongs to an upmarket restaurant. Just saying.
  • Don't stress! Chances are your date will love whatever you wear because the most important thing is that it's you wearing it.
