Not sure what outfit to wear on that first date, as you're meeting his parents, or when he wants to take you on a "surprise" night out? We asked the experts for fashion and beauty suggestions for every occasion.
You know the old adage: You've only got one chance to make a first impression. Well, that holds especially true on a first date with a new guy. Mad Men costume designer Janie Bryant recommends wearing something "sexy, flirty, and fun." Designer Marc Bouwer — who's newest collection will debut at New York Fashion Week and air on QVC Feb. 11 at 10 p.m. EST — suggests not dressing too provocatively, though. "Don't be afraid to show off your shape, just not in a very low-cut or bondage look," he says. "I suggest a button down silk shirt paired with a pencil skirt or a sexy pair of jeans."

Your hair and makeup on a first date should be natural "with a touch of glamour," says celeb hairstylist Christo, who recommends the long, soft curls of Amanda Seyfried.
Get the Look
Part your dry hair, and section it into thick parts. Use a 2-inch curling iron on each section from the middle to the end. Use a spray gel for hold. Allow the curling iron to set for a few seconds before moving on to the next section. Once finished, softly run your fingers through the curls to achieve a soft, wavy look.
