Word to the wise for women if you plan to go on a date this Valentine’s Day—avoid the onesie and rock a basic black dress instead. 

A new study conducted by the British Heart Foundation finds that a onesie is one of the most unattractive items of clothing that a woman can wear on a date.

According to the Daily Mail, more than half of men say a woman wearing a onesie is a complete turn off. In addition, a woman wearing a jumpsuit was labeled the 'ultimate dating turn-off' by 39 percent of men. 

Instead, men prefer a little black dress or something basic—52 percent say a simply outfit (like a basic black dress) is most attractive.

Other turn-offs  or men when it comes to women’s fashion includes crocs, animal print, and fake fur.

“Our study shows that sometimes the simple things in life are also the best,” says British Heart Foundation’s Polly Shute. “A little black dress makes women feel sexy and men clearly agree women look great in them too.”

Instead of avoiding color and patterns entirely, Shute recommends incorporating them in small doses. “If women do want to brighten things up, putting on a dash of red lipstick, and some red lingerie can really set pulses racing.” But one thing is clear, there is simply no attractive way to pull off a onesie. “It is clear nobody should be seen wearing a onesie in public if they ever want a second date.”
