So, you’ve landed yourself a first date. Congratulations! Now, the hard part is over, and it’s time to start thinking about what you’re going to wear.
While it may seem like an insignificant detail, what you wear on a first date can actually be quite important. Your clothes can be a subtle way of sending out signals about your personality and can also help make a good first impression.
First of all, it’s important to remember that you don’t need to spend a fortune on clothes to look good. A well-fitting pair of jeans and a nice shirt will do the trick. Just make sure that your clothes are clean and wrinkle-free.
It’s also important to be comfortable with what you’re wearing. If you’re not comfortable, it will show. And no matter how good you look, if you’re not comfortable, your date will be able to tell.
Now for the most important question: what should you wear on a first date? Well, the answer depends on how the date is going. First, if your date is older and you know they’re interested, you may want to make it a bit more formal (i.e. if they’re really fancy). If you’re dating a friend of a friend, then you should be very relaxed. You probably wouldn’t go with a suit or a business suit for a date with a friend of a friend, unless that person is well known in your community and they need to impress them.
If you’re going with a girlfriend, you’ll probably look for something more casual. If it’s a first date with someone who is much younger than you, then you might go for something that is a bit more formal. As a general rule, the younger the person you’re going with, the more casual the outfit should be.
A classic look on the first date would look good on a man, whether working in his office or spending time with his friends. You can wear a white collared shirt with a slim-fit blue blazer, and a black tie to go with it. The white shirt and blazer combo is a classic that can be pulled off by a man of any age, while the black tie adds the perfect amount of smartness to the ensemble. You may want to invest in some black shoes for a first date. Go for shoes that are stylish and formal but also casual.
Suits or dresses
There are those that prefer to go for a suit and those who prefer to go for a dress. What to wear on your first date depends on the event and how comfortable you are with what you are wearing. If you are not at all comfortable wearing a suit or dress, you can always opt for a tie and dress shirt or blazer and dress pants.
Whatever you choose, make sure it is comfortable enough for you to wear on your date and also make sure it fits you. If you are a bit more laid back, go for jeans and a t-shirt or a dress shirt and dress pants.
