    I think people in here are being a bit harsh, haha. Wear something you like that you feel comfortable in! If in doubt go for a sort of smart casual look. If it was me I'd probably wear a skirt and t-shirt that I liked, but smart jeans and a nice t-shirt would honestly do just as well. And if you really like the dungarees they're probably fine too! It's all a matter of taste.

    Well as this thread has established, it appears the majority of men prefer dresses/skirts etc. to dungarees. To me dungarees just look like you couldn't be bothered to dress up for the date and aren't feminine enough. Particularly as this is a first date, it'd be a huge turn-off.

    You are right in that attractiveness is subjective, but you can aim for what the majority want. People don't wear dungarees to fancy parties, and since a first date is the only opportunity to make a good first impression it's vital that you come across as caring about the date and your appearance if you the date to succeed. If you find dungarees appropriate, then good for you, but most people don't.
    So when would it be appropriate for me to wear dungarees when it comes to going out with a guy? I really like wearing my dungarees...

    A classy dress with heels.
    What if she doesn't tend to wear dresses and all that, you can get decent long tops that go with leggings wouldn't this be appropriate as long as she was smart.

    No, I'm sorry - why should anybody aim for what "the majority want"? They should aim for what they want. They are buying the clothes. They are wearing them. It's their choice. And don't say the majority like a TSR thread gives you any kind of indicator what the majority of Britain views as attractive in female fashion.

    Who said the OP was goong to a "fancy" event? She clearly stated that a dress and heels are inappropriate. Stop acting like women were born to do what you want, look how you want, and please you. Get ****ed.
    Why are you always so touchy?

    i honestly love the way dungarees look and if you're gonna be doing a lot walking you need to been comfortable. if you feel good in them you should wear them. I'm sure you wont look like a mechanic or hillbilly as some of these people are saying.

    What happened to free speech? You can't report someone just because you don't agree with what they're saying. I made this thread to get oponions, good or bad, on me wearing dungarees to my first date

    Dude chill out, get off your high horse. The point I was making was she is going on a date, and presumably wants it to be a successful date. Looking attractive (and I already said both people, not just the woman obviously) increases the odds that the date will be successful. Therefore wearing clothing that the majority of people find attractive further increases the odds of a successful date. If you want to wear whatever you want - fine - but don't be surprised if the date isn't successful. All you are trying to do is maximise the probability of a successful date, so doing things that increase your chances of success are in your interest. I'm just looking at this scientifically, calm the f*ck down I'm not attacking anyone.

    I never said she was going to a 'fancy' event, I meant dungarees are not appropriate at such events which is an indicator of when and where they shouldn't be used. The fact that they aren't used at such events is indicative that they aren't viewed as good clothing to make a first impression with, as people principally dress up well to such events in order to look 'good' in front of other people. Science, not emotions.

    And given that TSR can provide a cross section of males in a similar age band to give their opinions on dungarees, it's a decent indicator of what the man she is going on a date will think. I've already said that not all will agree (as you clearly don't), but the majority seem to dislike them so listening is a good way of maximising your odds of a successful date.

    It's impossible to talk with you sometimes because you convince yourself that everyone is attacking your opinions, just calm down seriously.

    In French, dungaree is "salopette"
    I wonder if what she wears actually refers to her sexual exploits?

    Personally I don't like them full-stop, but I'd never wear them if you were going out for a meal or anything. What exactly is it you'll be doing? Perhaps if you were walking around a lot then they'd be appropriate, but I'd still leave it a bit of time before doing so when you're more comfortable with each other.

    Men and women should dress professionally on dates. Dungarees aren't professional. It's like a guy wearing a tracksuit to a date LOOOL

    Women should have 3 items to wear on her lower half..

    1) Dresses

    2) Skirts (not denim, the other type looks better)

    3) Tight black leggings/tights

    Nothing else is needed really.

    Shorts are like jeans, not unattractive but always inferior options to the above.
    Or:

    Women (and men!) should wear whatever they want, as long as it's 'appropriate'
