    4. Uncomfortable Heels

    “Don't wear heels you know you aren't going to be comfortable in, no matter how great they look. You don't want to end up hobbling around the whole time.” — Jenn Camp of Le Fashion

    5. Tight & Short

    "This may be my personal MO when it comes to style, but I tend to shy away from anything too short or constricting, especially on a first date. The last thing I want to feel is uncomfortable or like I have to constantly tug at a hemline. Don't get me wrong, I love a good mini, just as long as it's easy to sit and enjoy dinner in." —Krystal Bick of This Time Tomorrow

    6. Too Much Perfume
