Getting your attire right for a date is imperative, not only to impress but also to feel comfortable with yourself. Read on for our top tips for men when it comes to dressing for a date.
Avoid a blazer
Don’t be overly formal, which can go against you as much as being scruffy or underdressed. A blazer is generally unnecessary unless your first date is to a charity ball or a wedding. If you are going somewhere nice, such as a good restaurant or the theatre, it is worth wearing a quality shirt paired with trousers or jeans, depending on the venue.
Don’t go too crazy with accessories, but by all means pick a stylish scarf and wear it well, a pair of designer sunglasses, and – of course – a great watch. This is one of the few pieces of jewelry all men can pull off.
Simple color schemes
Obviously don’t dress all in black, but equally, avoid anything too crazy when it comes to colour. Go for a simple palette of blues, greys, and whites, or even greens, but not anything too ‘statement’ unless you feel totally comfortable.
Make sure you are either cleanly shaven or have a neatly trimmed beard, wear a good aftershave, trim your nails, and clean your ears! This may seem elementary but forget at your peril.
These simple tips are all you need when it comes to looking great for your date.
