Through the years, women's attire has become more and more casual and laid back. In the 1950s and 60s, women like Mary Tyler Moore and Jackie Kennedy made being a woman in pearls classy and classic. But now, some women have become too lazy to get dressed up for a man. But it really is important to take the time to make yourself presentable, especially if you're going on a date.
From the 1950s to now we've gone from dresses 95% of the time to dresses maybe 5% of the time. And those dresses were replaced with jeggings and yoga pants and sweat pants. Where women used to look feminine and show off their figure, they now look frumpy and figureless.
Going on a date is not the time to be casual or comfortable. Don't go completely over the top, but it is important to do an enhanced version of yourself. If you look too comfortable you could be in danger of being "friend-zoned". You want to be sure to look like you are interested in the person you're interested in. Even if you're just "hanging out" or if it's not officially a date, you want to look your best just in case. If you expect him to put forth some effort, then you should put forth some effort too. Show you care a little. A little goes a long way!
