Fashion, culture and dating
If you are travelling abroad and thinking of meeting international singles you might want to know what to wear on a first date. This article looks at how fashion trends alter in different countries and what different cultures find more attractive sartorially.
This article looks at some of the different fashions around the world and what outfits are culturally acceptable when you are dating.
With Spain’s bright sunny culture and relaxed, happy lifestyle Spanish singles like to wear eye-catching vibrant colours and a laid-back style. Mature Spaniards dress conservatively and with style – often wearing very high-quality clothing.
Although you will see plenty of scantily-clad holiday makers along the coast, if you are going on a date you should cover up. Swim wear and short skirts are frowned upon in the small villages. Women should wear a long floaty skirt with a simple top and men should go for a bright t-shirt and good-quality shorts.
Italians are famous for their inherent fashion sense. When you are in Italy it is important to make an effort and dress up well. If you are going on a date with an Italian women take time over your appearance. Italian women are not impressed with men who wear trainers and t-shirts.
You don’t have to go all out with a suit but a simple, clear shirt and nice pair of shoes will go a long way! Similarly if you are thinking of dating an Italian man, remember that they are used to dating women who put a lot of effort into their appearance. Wear a figure-hugging dress that shows off your curves without making you look cheap.
The French have mastered the I-look-fantastic-without-even-trying style. The most stylish French men dress in quite a grungy way as if they just picked up the first thing they found on the floor that morning. Coupled with tousled hair it gives them a care-free sexy look.
The women give off the same aura. They may make more effort with their wardrobe but it is their attitude which makes them attractive. French women are comfortable in their bodies and know how to wear their outfits. They wear natural-looking hair and make-up and ooze confidence.
If you are going on a date with a French man show off your svelte figure in a pair of tight jeans and heels and charm him with your charismatic personality.
Japanese singles are very careful of the way they dress to impress. Japanese girls are generally very shy and don’t like to wear anything that is too tight or revealing. If you are going on a date in Japan don’t wear anything that shows the outline of your figure.
Casual clothes are fine so long as you look tidy and presentable. Men should wear an eye-catching t-shirt with comfortable trousers and a smart jacket and women should go for either a simple tea-dress with opaque tights or a pair of jeans and a pretty, feminine top.
Here in the UK there are no set rules on what to wear on a date but there are plenty of no-nos! If you are going on a date with someone for the first time – perhaps someone you have met through an online dating site such as www.eharmony.co.uk – your first impression will be very important.
Women should look confident and sexy without wearing anything too revealing and men should looks smart and neat without appearing too formal. Women, dig out your favourite outfit or that signature little black dress and men, remember that shoes can be a deal-breaker! For more tips on fashion and dating check out eHarmony UK’s Twitter Page.
Fashion varies across the globe, but as long as you wear something you feel sexy in and you act happy and confident you should impress your partner no matter where in the world you are dating!
