When prepping for a first date, it’s normal to want to reach for your tried-and-true little black dress—but according to new research shared by the Daily Mail, you might consider swapping that LBD for an LRD. Men are apparently most likely to form a lasting relationship with a woman who wears red on the first date. On the flip side, girls are most likely to go for guys who dress in grey for date number one—enter obligatory 50 Shades joke here.
The UK study polled 1,128 British females and 1,232 British males currently in relationships, 92 percent of whom remembered which hue their partner was wearing the first time they met. Surprisingly, 69 percent of men and 64 percent of women then admitted that the color their partner happened to wear during that fateful first date affected how attracted they were to them. Below, check out the stats:
