Alicia Fox presents: The Do's and Don'ts of a first date
So you’ve got a first date with that cute lady you’ve been crushing on the last few weeks … but you can’t figure out what to wear for your big night out. What to do?
Have no fear, Alicia Fox is here. The same Diva who taught you the pratfalls of online dating is back with another classic how-to from WWE Magazine with all the first-date dressing tips you’ll need, with a little Long Island Iced-Z to boot. First, we’ll start with the don’ts. Take it away, Alicia and Zack!
JUST TAKE CARE … : “Scruffy hair is OK, but the fresh-out-of-bed look is just plain lazy. If you’re not going to put any effort into your hair, you might as well shave your head bald. At least it would look cleaner.”
LOOK THE PART, BE THE PART: “Dating attire is definitely ‘dress to impress,’ and hoodies are too casual. You don’t have to wear a blazer — though that look is totally hot — but aim higher.”
T-SHIRT TIME: “Loud, graphic T-shirts like this are supertrendy— and right now, the trend is out. I would never recommend wearing this, unless you’re going to the gym. This is not a date shirt.”
SHOW ME WHAT YOU GOT: “Wearing an oversized T-shirt with oversized pants throws your outfit’s proportions off. Rock what you got! If you have a great body, like Zack, show it off by wearing something a little tighter.”
IN THE “MONEY: “I won’t lie. The wallet chain isn’t terrible, but it brings me back to the ’90s — and I don’t want to go there ever again. The right accessory is key, and this isn’t it.”
SOMEBODY CALL MY MOMMA: “Baggy jeans make me want to whip out the Mom card and shout, ‘Pull your pants up, boy!’ Don’t make me act like your mother. Neither of us will enjoy it.”
SHOE-IN FOR DISASTER: “Running sneakers are never OK to wear on a first date — unless you’re taking me to a skate park or sporting event, which, for the record, is also unacceptable.”
So we’ve covered the basics of what not to do. Now, Miss Fox and a made-over Zack Ryder give you the skinny on how to look your best for your big night out.
ON THE BUTTON: “Button-downs are clean-cut, and because they’re classic, unlike a tee, you can rock as loud a color as you want and still look neat. I love crazy colored button-downs, like Zack’s purple one, combined with a gingham, plaid or striped pattern!”
… SPIKE YOUR HAIR: “What a difference a little styling gel makes! Zack’s new hairdo really opens up his face. It lets all the girls see his handsome features…and isn’t the fun of dating a good-looking man getting to stare at his face all night?”
ACCESSORIZE TO HARMONIZE: “A+ on the belt and watch combination. The big-faced leather watch is so 2011—compared to the chain. It’s a simple accessory that complements the outfi t without looking like he’s trying.”
WINDBREAKING=BREATHTAKING: “This is such a step up from his hoodie! Zack’s jacket is sleek but adventurous, and the perfect balance between formal and casual. It’s much more understandable for a first date, wherever he goes.”
SKY’S OUT, THIGHS OUT: “Zack’s narrower-fit jeans are so sexy. They make him look much more put together, and show off his toned legs. Never go too tight, though. Keep pants fitted comfortably and you’ll be fine.”
SHOES MAKE THE MAN: “You can always tell a good man by his shoes. Men may not always be able to match their clothes, but the shoes always have to be sharp. A good men’s boot rocks my world any day.”
