First dates can be nerve-racking. And you only make them worse by wearing the wrong outfit. A blogger for howaboutwe.com grilled her guy friends about "first date fashion no-nos," and came up with a handy list of "don'ts" for ladies looking to score a second date.

According to the site, women should NOT wear:

--Anything too revealing. As in, "Short skirts, cleavage-bearing anything."

--Too much makeup. "You might think it looks OK, but guys don’t like to see your face caked in makeup," the site says.

--Uncomfortable-looking shoes. "Do a test before your date -- if you can’t walk normally in them, leave them at home," the site advises.

--A hat. Especially a cowboy hat.

--Anything too dressy. Unless you want him to think you're ready to walk down the aisle.

--UGGs. "This came up a few times," howaboutwe says.

--A huge purse. "They make you look high-maintainence which makes guys think you’re an expensive date blahblahblah, not fair but true," the site reports. What do you think is the biggest first date fashion no-no?

    You only get one chance to make a first impression, and your appearance you should reflect you expectations. Know what you want, and dress accordingly.

    It would seem to me that if you bother dating, you are looking for something long term in the end. This sends the wrong message from the start and can put off someone who might otherwise be totally into you. Just an opinion.

    It's a no-no for me. It just looks so tacky and wrong. Whats wrong with just some mascara and a lip gloss? Too much makeup just grosses me out.

    Dressing too provocative/trampy can be either a turn on or a turn off, but you needn't wear a church lady outfit or a burqa style dress.

    ...Unless that in itself is a turn on ;)

    show off your hair girls. and it depends on how you usualy dress, you don't want to look like your trying to hard. don't go changing your style for a guy. too much makeup is bad but if makeup makes you feel more comfortable then maybe its acceptable if its easier to be yourself without worrying so much about how you look.

    If you wear too much makeup it makes you look like an easy slut. But I think the worst thing a girl can wear on a first date is sweat pants.

    VERY true.

    I actually like a casual guy who wears a baseball hat - I was thinking in terms of something I wouldn't wear on a first date. I never wear hats.

    Of course, you don't want the honeys to be out and about, but if you show up looking like Barbie's ugly stepsister got attacked with crayolas, he's not going to be impressed.

    C'mon ladies. Your giving the man a wrong idea if you wear revealing things. And depending on what your wearing you might look like a whore.

    If you can't walk in the shoes, they are not sexy! They just make you look stupid.

    Also, if she has a tattoo of an ex lover on her, it needs to be covered.
