Have you got a first date coming up soon, and want to feel like you’re at your absolute best? That’s completely normal, and we all want to feel amazing when it comes to meeting new people and potentially finding a romantic partner!
If you’ve been out of the dating game a little while though, you might be feeling unsure about where to start. Don’t worry though, because I’ve got you covered. Use these tips to help you to look and feel amazing on that all-important first date…
MAKE SURE YOUR HAIR IS IN THE BEST POSSIBLE CONDITION
A good hair day is a sure fire way to ensure that you feel on top of your game. A new haircut can help, but in reality, it’s not about that. It’s about the little things that you do each and every day that keep it in the absolute best condition. When you do this, you can roll out of bed feeling great every single day, and you don’t have to rely on a salon!
Invest in products that suit your style and care regime, though don’t feel that you have to break the bank by spending a small fortune. My favourite shampoo is Alberto Balsam, and you can pick it up in the supermarket for 99p!
DEVELOP A SMALL BUT PERFECTLY FORMED WARDROBE
Fast fashion has had a lot of negative press in recent months, and many of us are becoming more conscious of the impact that out buying habits can have on our environment and the world around us. So instead of feeling like you have to rush out and buy a new outfit for your date, take some time to assess what you already own.
A good pair of jeans can be dressed up or down, and can make you feel amazing without being overdressed. Equally, a crisp white t-shirt can be worn to the office, out on a shopping trip, or to a date when teamed up with some funky jewellery. Finding your own personal style will help you to feel much more comfortable in your own skin. Check out this great guide to creating a capsule wardrobe.
MAKE SURE THAT YOU’LL FEEL COMFORTABLE
First dates can be really scary. The last thing that you want to do is choose a look or an outfit that makes you feel self conscious or uncomfortable. Now probably isn’t the best time to start experimenting with completely different looks. What’s most important is that you can feel relaxed and like yourself.
If you’ll feel happier in trainers, that’s fine. It’s all about embracing who you really are, and having the confidence to know that the right person will resonate with you, and will appreciate your own personal style and choices.
