Which one of these sentences is correct? And if both are, is there a difference in meaning?

It might have been better to use my sister's clothes.

It might have been better to have used my sister's clothes.

In this case, the simple infinitive is probably appropriate:

It might have been better to use my sister's clothes.

You would use the present perfect infinitive if you wanted to indicate that you should have done something before some reference event:

It might have been better to have asked him before you took his car.
