    Published on

    Did you know that 33% of people would say “no thanks” to a second date based on fashion alone?

    It’s Valentine’s Day, and that means a lot of people will be going out on dates.

    Hinge reports a 35% surge in dates arranged on Valentine’s Day, while Tinder sees a whopping 11.4 million more messages exchanged around the February 14th mark. From securing a date to planning the perfect evening, there’s plenty to think about—and one potential dealbreaker you might not consider is your outfit.

    To help you avoid fashion missteps and maximise your chances of a second date, a global survey by BestBettingSites.com polled 3,000 people to reveal the biggest fashion mistakes to steer clear of on Valentine’s Day.

    Here are some outfits that you should avoid on a date:

    1. Full tracksuit/athleisure

    3. Crocs

    Though Crocs are quite popular it turns out 24% of the people polled consider them a dating disaster.

    4. Very large sunglasses

    Except when it’s extremely sunny, there’s no reason to wear large sunglasses on a date, especially indoors.

    5. Large logos

    This type of outfit is hated by 33.7% of people polled because it’s juvenile and childish.

    6. Too tight shirts or tops

    Avoid tight clothing. There is nothing as annoying as people who look like they are being choked by their outfits.

    7. High socks with low trainers

    If you are wearing low trainers, wear low socks, except if you are going to the gym.

    8. Ripped skinny jeans

    This isn’t 2012, tight ripped jeans are a huge no; instead, wear plain trousers.

    9. Roll-neck tops

    If you want to make your date happy, make sure you avoid wearing any of these outfits.
