You sent a wink, she winked back and woohoo you moved on to email. After a few emails the vibe is oh-so right & you’ve secured that all important date.
Awesome… Question is what are you going to wear?
Now the great thing about men’s fashion is that there is not a great amount of choice, so the odds of getting your outfit wrong is 50/50. But with that said why not tip the odds in your favour?
The first thing to remember is you only get one chance to make a first impression. So whilst you can be the cutest guy on earth but if you turn up looking like Worzel Gummidge then your date may think twice about continuing the date or seeing you again. So how do you decide what to wear?
First up keep it simple – decide where the date will take place and take it from there….
For the casual drink/impromptu meal your look should be casual but not so casual it might appear that you have made no effort. Clothing wise you cannot go wrong with the rock god look.
Yeah, Channel David Duchovny in Californication. Think dark jeans, Ramones T-shirt & a leather jacket. Band T-shirt not your style? Not to worry just switch the band t-shirt to a clean white one & save the ‘comic’ logo t-shirts ‘you know nothing Jon Snow’ to casual days at work. Not dates.
For the more formal date etiquette no longer means that you have to wear a suit to dinner but match your outfit to how formal the venue is. If you’re going to a 5* restaurant then try trousers, shirt and a suit jacket. This look can take you from hottest restaurant to the coolest cocktail bar and you’ll fit straight in.
Going on an outdoorsy date?
Wrap up warm and look delectable. Women love something or someone they can snuggle into and nothing says ‘get your snuggle on’ more than a nice fisherman’s man jumper, Docker boots and jeans.
Yes!! Jumpers can be cool.
But remember as much as Christmas jumpers have caught on over the years not even Colin Firth could make a Christmas jumper sexy! Save this little treat for when we’re past date 1…. Err maybe date 2?!….. Nah save it for when you’re our boyfriend!
