What to wear on a first date is a tricky question because there are so many factors. You want to like it and you want a guy you don’t really know that well to like it. You want to look pretty and stand out from the single-girl sea, but you’re playing it on the safe side. I’ve spent a lot of time being impressed by Marissa’s dating skills and formulas, especially how she views first-date dressing. It’s all logical: Pick something that’s simple, wears well, and will look totally perfect for a wide variety of situations. Since you’ll have only one first date with someone, her logic makes sense: Once you have the perfect piece, wear it on every first date.

“But what if the guys are different? What if one takes you to a really nice dinner and another wants to get drinks at a dive bar?” I asked, genuinely perplexed. “They’re all more similar than you’d think,” she told me, explaining that for her, dating in Manhattan, guys typically pick the same type of nice-but-not-too-nice spots. And a basic LBD is the perfect blank canvas for accessorizing per the occasion, meaning a killer pair of heels can make it ready for the fanciest hot spot in town, while a pair of casual flats and a leather jacket have it ready to go sip beer and listen to live music.

The flouncy style above ($90, is what I’m talking about: simple but not so buttoned-up that he’ll think you rushed straight over from a work meeting. There are tons of options too, so you can find one that suits your personality, whether it’s a little girly, fashion-forward, or sexy.
