The countdown begins for The Bachelorette season 11 premiere and in order to get us even more pumped up for the reality TV show ABC released some stunning photos from a shoot with the two Bachelorettes, Kaitlyn Bristowe and Britt Nilsson. People.com reports that Bristowe and Nilsson have ditched the usually colorful gowns we’re accustomed to seeing on Bachelorettes and opted for some silvery grey numbers which fit the season’s tagline, ‘50 Shades of Cray.’ The two girls, who battled for Chris Soules on season 19 of The Bachelor, will once again face off for relationships and love in a two part premiere on May 18th.

Britt Nilsson and Kaitlyn Bristowe let their personalities shine through their grey dresses for ‘The Bachelorette’ promo shoot. How can you make a good impression and pick the perfect first date outfit?

Cupid’s Advice:

Most people don’t like to admit it but we often judge others based on their appearance the first time we meet them. That’s why a first date outfit can have a big impact on whether or not someone asks you out again. Have no fear, here is some love advice on how to put together the right ensemble… 

1. Be appropriate: The first thing you should consider when picking your first date outfit is what you’re going to be doing on the date. Different outfits are more appropriate for dinner and a movie versus a hike and a picnic. You may have a great pair of sparkly stilettos but you probably shouldn’t wear them if you and your date are headed to a street fair. If you don’t know where you’re going then try to pick a neutral outfit such as a loose dress or jeans and a nice top. 

2. Be yourself: If you’re the type of girl who wears jeans and a t-shirt 99% of the time, you’ll give the wrong impression of yourself if you show up to your date wearing your roommate’s body-con dress. When you’re picking your outfit select something that represents the “real” you. If the date you’re going on doesn’t really allow you to dress like yourself, consider asking him nicely if you can do possibly do something else.

Be on time: Being fashionably late is acceptable for a large party but not for a one-on-one date. It’s easy to overthink a decision like this. Don’t get anxious and wrapped up in your head. If you can’t find the perfect first date outfit don’t worry, just be sure to wow him with your personality!
