As we know from experience, picking a date outfit is one of those high-pressure situations that lends itself to misguided fashion choices. A sequin maxi skirt will draw him to me like a magpie right? Nope. The more red lipstick I slick on, the more he’ll notice my kissable lips right? Absolutely not. There’s so much emotion wrapped up in the occasion, that it helps to have some clear-headed ground rules for your outfit. Enter Juli Wilson, one of the top stylists of Keaton Row, an awesome (and free!) personalised online styling service.
