First Date Attire for Men

Dress for the Event

Ask your date about the concept of the date, where you’re spending it and the list of activities you’re going to do together. Center your style around the concept, such that if it’s a sports date, then don your most comfortable sports or outdoor attire.

Wear Your Most Comfortable

You are never going to enjoy the date when you’re feeling uncomfortable with what you wear. Often, a clean shirt and a fresh pair of jeans are enough to make a manly statement. Plus, they’re ultra comfortable, too.

Show Your Personal Style, Only Smartly

Each person is unique, so you likewise are unique, including the way you style yourself. Of course, this is the first date so you dress smartly if you are to make a good impression. If you are a hip-hop kind of person, then tone down the bling-blings a bit. You really don’t need to become a totally different person, just the smart version of yourself.

Show Off Your Best Features

What do you think is the most noticeable part of your body (save the ones that really needs to be covered)? If your jaws speak of machismo, then flaunt them. If you have long hair, you can either get a haircut or simply gather your hair in a neat ponytail.

Observe Personal Hygiene

Actually this is common sense. You really should observe personal hygiene regardless if it’s for a date or an everyday thing. But perhaps you can be extra tidy and fresh-smelling this time by minimizing the use of soaps, shampoos and fragrances with strong scents.

First dates are not the time for extreme dressing, so tone down your style if you’re into outlandish fashion or beef up your attire if you’re usually the simple, casual guy. There really is no reason to dress up like someone else. Be yourself – the smart version of yourself and you’re ready to meet that lady on your first date and for future dates to come.
