Closet Advice: What to Wear to Get Noticed on a Date
Nov 30, 2017
Going on a date can sometimes (most times?) be an extremely anxiety-ridden event. Choosing the perfect outfit to wear on said date can be just as troublesome. We've taken a look at studies and research and come up with the perfect choices for you. Here is a look at what to wear on that date (or in general to attract more dates) to get you noticed for all the right reasons.
Night Out Woes. We've all been there. The frantic search through the closet as you scour for something - anything - that fits "just right" for the impending night out. Whether it's for a date or just a night out with friends, figuring out what to wear can be daunting.
Those Shoes, This Coat? Does this shirt look best with this jacket? What about these shoes - do I look too tall in them or should I go for the flats? We understand. Trust us.
Relax. Get Noticed. The first step in making a good impression isn't what article of clothing you're wearing. It's how you project yourself. So relax. Breathe. We'll help you get there.
Confidence Is Sexy. No, this isn't going to be one of those "put on a smile!" kind of articles, though admittedly a smile does help. The truth is, the way to get noticed really doesn't have much to do with what you're wearing. Well, that's not entirely true - let's back up a bit.
Sincerity. The right outfit can certainly compliment anyone and help them get noticed, but the key is to understand it's only part of the equation. People are attracted to genuine, confident and happy individuals. That's not hard to achieve. Know how you do it? You relax. You just go out and have fun without worrying about what you are or aren't doing right.
Pick What Compliments You. If you feel the most confident in the suede stiletto pumps, WEAR them. Seriously. If you feel more confident when you're in comfortable flats, WEAR them. What makes you feel best? That's what you go with.
Love Your Look. If you feel your best all dolled up with makeup and bold lips, do it. If you feel good about your look when you leave the house, you will exude more confidence once you're out. And confidence attracts attention.
So What's The Secret Ingredient? Outside of what makes you feel your best, experts say there is one thing in your wardrobe that will help garner the most attention. So what is it?
The Lady In Red. Drumroll please... and the winner is, RED. Anything red. Shoes, dress, pantsuit, sweater, jacket - whatever piece(s) you choose to add, make it red for the greatest impact on a date or outing.
Why It Works. Red attracts attention. It's bold. It's fiery. It grabs a hold of other's gazes and demands their attention.
Hayley Quinn. Blogger Hayley Quinn recently put the theory to the test. She put on her favorite red jacket and went out on the town, documenting her interactions and experiences. What she saw only solidified her belief in the power of the red.
Time To Stand Out. In her experiments, Quinn posted two different sets of photos to social dating sites to test her theory online as well. The site she chose to post herself in red came up with twice as many potential "matches" than the others.
Complimentary. Quinn stated she received way more compliments on her journey with red than normal. "Wearing red actually, surprisingly enough, does seem to work," she states in her blog.
Get Noticed. Red is such a bold and daring color. It is sexy and fierce, fiery and dynamic. Wearing the color red is the ultimate compliment to a confident personality type.
Channel Your Inner Red. Pull out your favorite red piece from the closet and start standing out. It will get you noticed faster than you might think.
