Do you have curly red hair, wear baggy yellow clothes and wear lots of jewelry? No wonder you’re still single! So says Millionaire Matchmaker Patti Stanger, who is doling out dating advice, fashion style.

Stanger says your appearance on a first date — or second, or third — should be all about sexual cues. This means avoid man repellers like crunchy curls and Rachel Zoe bag lady outfits. Oh, and if you’re a redhead? Break out the Miss Clairol, because rich guys don’t go for gingers.

“I can’t get my millionaires to date a redhead — it has nothing to do with me,” Stanger told “I can’t make my millionaires pick what I want; It’s not me; it’s the men.”

“Men who are wealthy like straight hair, they like to run their hands through it, not get tangled in there like it does with curls. And honestly, very few women have perfect curls. Unless you’re Andie McDowell, the curls just look messy.”

Now about that outfit… Stanger says boho looks hobo and men want nothing to do with it.

“No woman should be walking around in boho,” Stanger says. “It might look great on Rachel Zoe, but we all don’t have her body. How are you going to wear a tent dress and expect to get laid?”

“The girl with the great legs should wear a mini skirt, the girl with the swan neck should not be hiding in a turtleneck.”

Stanger advises dating hopefuls to avoid yellows and pumpkins and instead go for jewel tones.

Also, stop loading yourself down with jewelry, hats and scarves. “People over-accessorize and it’s just overwhelming,” she says. “Men will look at you and think you’re just too high maintenance.”

What’s Stanger’s most important piece of dating fashion advice? “I always say, ‘Don’t wear your diamonds to a date, or he has nothing to buy you.'”

Wise words.
