London [United Kingdom] Mar 18 (ANI):You've probably heard the warning that we don't get a second chance to make a first impression.

Although it is said, 'You're not supposed to judge a book by its cover' but in the world of online dating, ignoring first impressions is impossible.

For singles who consider themselves fashionable, it is a good idea to say so in your online profile. However, if you don't consider yourself particularly trendy, it may be time to invest in some new clothes.

Once you get past the profile and into real-life, the first date is crucial when it comes to fashion as effort is expected from both parties.

According to a survey conducted by online dating platform Zoosk and quoted by The Independent, 86 per cent of singles say it's important to dress nice, with 94 per cent of women believing dressing up for a first date is a must.

Even if fashion really isn't your thing, you can try avoiding some of the biggest fashion faux pas.

Firstly, wrinkled clothes are the biggest turn-off, according to 66 per cent of singles, with socks and sandals and Crocs following close behind at 55 per cent and 53 per cent respectively.

Super-tight shirts, pants that are too long or too short will earn you zero any points on a first date. Also, avoid dressing too young.

As for what you should wear on a first date, the survey found that you could go with the foolproof jeans and t-shirt combo, which 36 per cent of singles say is the best for feeling confident.

You can also never go wrong with all-black - a trend that 40 per cent of women revealed makes them feel the most confident and sexy.

However, if you are a millennial, it doesn't look like a lack of fashion-sense will hinder your chances of finding love. So never give up! (ANI)
