Whether you call it a hookup, a booty call, or a hookup, casual sex can be great. It’s a great way to blow off some steam and enjoy some physical pleasure without having to worry about committing to a relationship. It also gives you an opportunity to hone and perfect your “craft,” so to speak, for when you are ready for a more committed relationship.
Who knows, you could even end up going from having casual sex with the person you’re hooking up with to a serious relationship, and if that’s the case, you’ll already have broken the ice in the bedroom and will know what turns each other on.
While it’s totally true that hooking up can be an enjoyable experience, just like everything else in life, there are no guarantees. It could end up that you aren’t turned on and you could wind up having a really terrible time. Of course, no one wants that to happen, so preparing for a casual sex encounter is highly recommended.
You don’t have to go too nuts and cover the bed with rose petals, light a million candles, order room service, or chill champagne (though you can certainly do a few or all of these things); however, there are some things that you should definitely do in advance. Namely, making sure that you are well-groomed is highly recommended. Take the time to trim things up, if you know what we mean, and make sure that everything is neat, clean, and in order.
There’s something else that you can do to improve your chances of having a great hookup, too: dressing to impress. But what should you wear for a hookup? Surely, you don’t have to go all out and put on your best gown or a tux or anything. But you should wear something flattering that you’ll feel comfortable and confident in. It will make you more enticing to the person you’re hooking up with. What does that entail?
Whether it’s with someone you know personally, a friend of a friend, or someone you met via a dating app, if you’re looking for some hookup attire ideas, keep on reading.
Below, you’ll find some great tips and suggestions.
Tips For Dressing To Impress For Your Hookup
Wear Something That Looks Neat And Clean
While it should go without saying because it’s so important, we’re going to say it anyway: make sure that you wear something that looks neat, clean, and tidy. No matter how the hookup was planned, if you show up in something that is tattered, stained, and/or fits poorly (it’s too big and makes you look frumpy or is skin-tight and looks like you’re bulging out of it), you’re going to start things off on the wrong foot. As the saying goes, you only get one chance to make a good first impression.
If you show up to a casual sex date looking unkempt, that’s a great way to turn the person that you’re meeting off – and you want to turn him or her on!
Whether it’s jeans and a T-shirt, a button-down and a pair of slacks, a skirt and blouse, leggings and a top, or a dress, make sure that whatever you wear is neat and clean. 86 anything that’s torn and can’t be fixed, or if there are tears and they can be mended, do so.
Also, nix anything that’s stained, discolored, or fits poorly. If it’s wrinkled, take the time to press it. You don’t have to go nuts, but you should definitely look presentable.
Casual attire would definitely be appropriate for casual sex. By casual, however, we don’t mean sweatpants and sweatshirts or pajamas. No, we mean jeans, leggings, a T-shirt, etc. You know, something that you would wear out to a bar if you were trying to pick up someone to hook up with. Again – and we can’t stress this enough – make sure that if you do decide to go with the casual attire route, make sure that whatever you pick is neat, clean, and tidy.
We know this was stated above, but it’s so important that we’re going to say it again: Make sure that your outfit fits properly (you aren’t popping buttons or it isn’t so baggy that it makes you look like a sack of potatoes and hides your shape), that it’s unstained, that it isn’t tattered, and that it doesn’t look like you just pulled it out of the hamper.
Also important to your outfit is what you wear underneath. Guys, underneath a pair of jeans or slacks, you could wear a pair of well-fitted boxers, boxer briefs, or briefs. Ladies, you could opt for casual undergarments to wear underneath your casual ensemble; boy shorts, a teeny-weeny cotton bikini and a matching bra, a lacy or see-through bra, etc.
Choose Something Revealing
Depending on the type of hookup you’re planning – how you arranged the hookup, for example, if it was on a dating site that’s known for one-night stands, like Adult Friend Finder or Ashley Madison, or if it’s with someone you know and it’s been clearly established that you’re going to be getting freaky, then wearing something kinky and revealing would totally be acceptable.
Ladies, you can wear some kinky lingerie, like a lacy teddy, a revealing body stocking, or a strappy bra, crotchless panties, garters, and a pair of thigh-highs, for instance. Guys, you could don form-fitting boxer briefs that perfectly hug your cheeks and accentuate your package, mesh bikini-style bottoms with a matching mesh, form-fitting tank top, or even a jockstrap that cups your bits and pieces and shows off your buns.
If you do decide to go for a kinky look, be sure that you choose something you’re comfortable with. Opt for something that accentuates your best assets and that will make you feel proud to show off your body. If you feel self-conscious, rather than being an asset, your outfit is going to end up being a liability.
Additionally, make sure that your outfit fits well. If it’s too tight and it keeps riding up into uncomfortable places, instead of focusing on your pleasure, you’re going to end up concentrating on your discomfort.
Choose Garments That Are Easy To Remove
It’s also a good idea to go with items that are easy to remove; after all, you’re going to be engaging in sexual acts, and you don’t want to end up struggling to get into your birthday suit when things are really hot and heavy. For the ladies, bras that have a front closure would be ideal, as they tend to be easier to remove.
You could opt for something that closes in the back, but make sure that it isn’t too complicated to take off. If you’re going to be wearing a negligee, opt for something that has a zipper rather than snaps or hook-and-eye closures, for obvious reasons.
Gentlemen, go with bottoms that provide easy access; for example, while they aren’t as popular as they used to be, avoid button-fly pants, for sure, as they can be super-annoying to take off. Something that features a standard zipper and a snap or button closure is highly recommended for the bottoms.
Accessories are important, too, as they do help to accentuate, which can make you more alluring. For the gals, you can totally wear a pair of earrings that will frame your face; however, avoid choosing anything too long, too big, too bulky, and/or too heavy, as there’s a good chance that they’ll end up getting in the way.
Necklaces are great, too, as they can totally draw attention to two of your best assets (you know, your girls); but, as with earrings, avoid wearing anything that’s too big, bulky, heavy, and cumbersome, as there’s a chance that it will not only end up getting in the way but that it could become a choking hazard.
As far as accessories for guys, a nice watch would be a great choice. It doesn’t have to be super-expensive, but something that’s aesthetically pleasing, as it will help to make you look “finished” and more put-together. If you have pierced ears, don’t go nuts with your earrings; rather, choose something simple and subtle, like a small pair of studs or tiny pair of hoops.
You could wear a necklace and/or a bracelet, too, but make sure that it is masculine; gold or silver chains or something made of natural fibers, such as hemp or leather. Just like the ladies, guys should avoid accessories that are too big, bulky, and heavy, as they can be a major distraction and get in the way.
Sport The Right Footwear
Finish off your outfit with the right pair of shoes. Avoid wearing grungy, tattered, dirty sneakers, sandals, boots, etc. That goes for both men and women. Ladies, a pair of heels, knee-high or thigh-high boots, or even a pair of sexy flats or sandals are just some ideas to consider. Guys, you can opt for a pair of kicks, as long as they’re neat and clean, boots, loafers, or even dress shoes. Whatever type of footwear you choose, make sure that it works with and adds to your outfit.
When it comes to hookups, you want to impress the person you’re going to be hooking up with. When you’re dressed to impress, you’ll be more alluring, which can definitely help to enhance the experience for both you and your partner.
