Dear Sugar
I’m 25 and going on my first date. I wanted some suggestions about what to wear. We are meeting at a nice, but casual restaurant for a late lunch at 2:30. Clueless Clara

Dear Clueless Clara
Wear something that you are comfortable in. If it’s a first date, it’s likely that you are going to be nervous enough so the last thing you should be worrying about are loose straps, an itchy pair of pants, or proper top coverage.

Since it’s summertime, I’d go with a casual sun dress. If you aren't comfortable in a dress, then go for a skirt with a t-shirt and a pair of low sandals or wedges. Even a pair of white jeans with a cute top can look adorable for summertime.

Wearing blue jeans is too informal, and wearing something satin, plunging or too dolled up is inappropriate for a lunch. It’s always easiest to stick with basics and from there pick your favorite accessory to personalize the look. To see some FABULOUS outfit suggestions check out FABSUGAR

You definitely don’t have to treat, but there’s nothing tackier than poor manners. Just have fun, relax and be yourself. There’s nothing more attractive than a sense of humor and a genuine smile. Let your inner beauty show through!
