Colour me beautiful
Deciding on what to wear for a first date is something into which most girls put a great deal of time and effort.
Because for your first face-to-face meeting with a person you met through chatting online, you want everything to be perfect, and of course to make an unforgettable impression.
However, the important choice of first-date outfit is made considerably easier by colour consultant Leatrice Eiseman in her book "Colors for your every mood".
According to her, girls should first decide what image they want to project to the person they met through online dating and then choose the colour that would convey the particular message.
She suggests wearing a shade of pink-peach to appear more approachable, as it is flattering to most skin tones and gives the wearer a healthy glow.
Apart from that, the colour projects a little vulnerability that brings out something protective in men, Ms Eiseman said.
The colour consultant says women who want a strong man should wear deep red, burgundy or plum so they want to separate the mice from the men. The men who don't like a challenge are expected to stay away from women wearing these bold colours.
This is because red, the most sensual colour, is also the colour of sex and power. Ms Eiseman warns that it should be worn with caution, as it would attract guys interested in sex as well as guys interested in power which might mean that you could have your hands full.
There is only one colour which nobody should wear if they want to attract people, Ms Eiseman warns.
"Squished caterpillar yellow-green" repels people of both sexes equally, and should be avoided at all costs, she warns.
