Besides what and how you say the right things, what you wear is also a key to making a great first impression and, ultimately, settling that second date.
But while it's important to feel comfortable with what you’re wearing in order to exude an air of confidence, this isn’t a hall pass for wearing joggers and a t-shirt. Kicking things off in a less formal setting means you’re in luck (no stiff suits for you!). It’s about looking pulled together in a head-to-toe ensemble that exhibits confidence and calm vibe.
Sounds like a lot? Don’t sweat it, here we have listed 6 essentials—to seriously impress your date.
The Coffee Date
The coffee date is like the casual date, for this date deploys your favourite outfit that flatters you, ahaaa! you got it right! Polo is the way out, without overbearing; pair it with matching trousers or jeans to meet-and-greet. Just make sure your ensemble works seamlessly together; it’s all in the details.
The Dinner Date
When going on a dinner date, you should always wear a jacket. However, a chic blazer for men or a repurposed jacket is more than sufficient when paired with dark denim or tan pants.
The Brunch Date
If you are going out to lunch, you can sometimes get away with a tailored shirt, choose your shades with trouser to finish the look and, head out to a lakeside brunch date. Remember, there is always scope for a loose tie.
To the movies
When going to the movies, a t-shirt is a solid choice. You can wear both dark and bright shades with jeans or capris for a timeless look, without feeling like an overdressed penguin. Remember that you’re on a date and she still is paying attention to you in the lobby and so on.
Nothing can beat a leather jacket when going out for drinks. Kick in with a black leather jacket paired with jeans that accent your style, or a brown-leather jacket with casual pants for a hip look. Your jacket is an excellent way to make a style statement, as you will likely be face-to-face or sitting side-by-side. Remember to avoid the temptation to wear a hat.
For Formal Dates
The formal date is all about the fit, you're going to want to pull out all the stops and create an outfit custom for you. The formal date is a time to shine and can start with the classic shirt and go through well with tan pants.
