The number one fashion faux pas for daters...

The biggest style “don’t” for a date has been revealed and it’s something that’s ultra easy to fix.

It’s wrinkles. And before you start worrying about your crows’ feet or laugher lines... we’re talking about wrinkles in the clothes department. In a survey of singles, wrinkled clothes are the biggest turn off.

So before you throw on that un-ironed shirt or dress, telling yourself that anyone who judges you on looks alone isn’t worth a second date... ask yourself if you’d prefer it if the date you’re meeting made an effort to look presentable. And if the answer’s yes, whip out the ironing board and get a-pressing. 

Incidentally, a spirituality and health magazine recently claimed that the rhythmic back and forth motion of ironing is a good way to de-stress, so you might inadvertently smooth out your nerves as well as your t-shirt.
