Women notice the small things. Whilst you many think shoes aren’t that important it’s a different story for most women. Most women are obsessed with shoes. It’s unavoidable that they will be judging your shoes and anything else you are wearing. Therefore your trainers and thongs are out of the selection process. Choose something nice; lace-ups or loafers.
This is not a business meeting. Avoid wearing a suit unless you are coming straight from work. This point is more about dressing appropriately for the situation. You don’t want to be over or under dressed, unless you want to stand out like a sore thumb. It’s more than likely you will be going out for dinner, it’s the most popular choice for first dates, and a suit is just too much for this situation. That and you’ll be uncomfortable. Not wearing a suit does not mean you shouldn’t wear a jacket; there are plenty of men’s jackets to select from. You could wear a suit jacket with a pair of men’s jeans or chinos, smart casual at its finest.
This isn’t a clothing item but it’s a really important tip to follow. You should wear clothes that fit you. You don’t want to be lost in your jacket or look like you’re being suffocated by it. Wearing clothes that fit you well we not only insure that you look handsome but that you are comfortable. Comfortable clothes will insure that you are concentrating all your attention on the date and not fiddling.
If you want to wear a t-shirt try and avoid printed t-shirts. Go for simplicity with a pattern or colour. T-shirt sayings are not going to show your date how witty and humorous you are. They will most likely make you appear immature.
When you are putting together you outfit don’t forget to include items that suit your personality. You want to display your personality without punching your date in the face with it. This means just be subtle, you are kind of testing the waters to see if there is a connection after all. Happy dating.
