I’m going on a first date with a cute-looking guy in a few days, and though I’m looking forward to it, picking out an outfit has never been this tough. The butterflies in my stomach are not helping either.
I want to look stylish without looking too dressy or that I’m trying too hard – and I want to make a good impression. But I don’t know how to go about it! Should I wear a casual dress or something fancier? Do you think a bodycon dress would be apt? I need style advice. Please help!
