Yes, we know, when it comes to dressing, guys have it easy. But if you’re going on a first date, you’ll think twice about what you’re going to wear, because you want to look good as well. First impressions matter, and a lot! Which is why it is important to find the perfect outfit to make you look good without seeming as if you put a lot of effort into it. Before cutting to the chase, there are other aspects you need to take into consideration before the big day.
First of all: hair. Perhaps, this is not the best time to try new hair products or a new hairstyle. You already are familiar with the look that best suits you. Play it safe and avoid experimenting.
The second aspect is the beard, either you shave it or let it fully grow, leaving it unkept is not the best idea. You might come across as untidy or it can be abrasive to the girl's skin if you kiss.
Third: cologne. We all love a man who smells good, but abusing the product doesn't make you more attractive. Apply just the necessary amount behind your ears, chest, and wrists. Last, but not least: dental hygiene. Make sure you brush and floss your teeth, using mouthwash is a good idea too.
Take advantage of this grooming rite to apply a little bit of lip balm, because we all hate kissing dry lips on the first date. Now, we can move to the outfit, but not before telling you that no matter what you wear, a confident attitude is the most important thing to bring with you to a date.
Jeans are your best allies because you can mix and match them with anything. If you wear them properly, you can achieve a casual or a semi-formal look.
You’re allowed to wear them as long as you match them properly. Pair them with a casual long or short-sleeved shirt, or a pattern sweater. If worn incorrectly they will make you look older and not mature.
Another closet basic. You can wear it buttoned up or open, over a t-shirt. Many of us can't resist the lumberjack look.
It should come in light tones, in order to match them with dark blue jeans, khakis, or black pants. Just like the plaid shirt, it can be used buttoned up or down. If you choose the latter option, you’ll have to wear a white or grey t-shirt under it.
Black Leather Jacket
It is essential that you have this staple piece. On the first date, we all fantasize turning the "Bad Boy", into the "Boy Next Door".
Complete your outfit with a pair of shades, and a scarf to look sexy and mysterious.
They are more important than you think. Choose a pair of dress boots, work boots, chukkas, casual street sneakers, or loafers. Don’t go for the “too formal” leather dress shoes or the “too casual” gym sneakers. Remember that choosing between the black or brown option depends on the colors of the rest of your outfit.
They are a risky choice, and yet, if you wear them properly you’ll look sexy. You can either choose a neutral color to match your outfit, or a bold one to contrast it. Just remember to never wear suspenders and belt at the same time.
They can give your outfit a more cheerful look, especially when they come in bright colors or prints. Don’t be shy, wear them and show your fun and confident side.
