IT CAN be daunting deciding what to wear on a first date – but it turns out there are some items you should avoid, according to a celebrity fashion stylist. 

Speaking to Fabulous, Ellis Ranson said: “As a stylist, of course I believe that outfits play a big part in first impressions. 

“Plus, now that ‘in real life’ dating is back, gone are days we could get away with sweats and comfortable trainers! 

“It can be daunting, but it’s time to get dressed up and get back out there.”

Here are her top fashion tips when it comes to dating…

Show off your neck not your chest

Don’t give it all away and find the fine line between sexy and boring.

I was on First Dates – it took a year to find a match & I made a BIG mistake

I’m a fashion expert & here’s what your ‘first date’ outfit says about you

Show off your neck more than your chest and don’t forget, your date will only really see your top half for majority of the date anyway.

Jeans and a T-shirt is a yes

If you’re going on a more relaxed coffee date, your best fitting jeans and a simple T-shirt or blouse is the perfect combo, whilst keeping you feeling comfortable and confident. 

Remember, if you feel confident in your outfit, you will feel 100% ready to take on any date.

Don't go too complicated

The first rule is make sure you are comfortable. 

The clothes shouldn’t be wearing you, and nobody wants to be sat across someone fiddling with their outfit all night.

Keep it simple and wear something you know won’t irritate you the whole time. 

If you are going for basics look but want to switch it up, try different necklines or throw in some colour. 

A sweetheart shape is also a great first date style.

Leather trousers are a huge hit

If you’re going for dinner and drinks, get out those leather trousers and heeled boots out.

All of my clients LOVE their favourite black leathers.

Oversized blazers are a must

A big tip and something I do often is add an oversized blazer to polish any look, this works great for casual dates as well as evening dinners/drinks.

Don’t deviate from your style

Lastly and most importantly, be yourself.
