5. Boho/Rock Gothic
If mid-’90s Sienna Miller and Zooey Deschanel are your fashion icons, then you can safely place yourself in the boho chic/rock gothic category. Flow-y dresses, flats, earth tones and belts are all lovely. But the message they send can be roughly translated to “don’t fence me in.” Looking “romantic and wistful” on a first date can be interpreted as “homeless and poor.” So, don’t be afraid to go a little more conservative. If you must wear a flow-y dress, cinch in that waist or add a pair of seriously glam heels.
Do your date-night clothes say “Free to good home” or “dream girl?”
What message do your clothes send?
