For starters, lets be clear, what you wear on a first date is completely dependent on what kind of date you are going on. This is simple, common sense. There are wide ranges of first date options and the best bet is to try and dress accordingly based on the activities that will be involved.
Basically, you wouldn’t wear a tuxedo to play miniature golf nor would you step out with a tank top, shorts and flip flops when going to an upscale French restaurant.
There are tons of different first date ideas so it is impossible to cover every specific situation, however here are some basic go-to guidance of what to wear on a first date for the ultimate success:
- What is generally the goal of a first date? To get to a second one! It is an interview process in sorts. Above all, when choosing the attire for your date, be as true to yourself and your own personal style as you can while still being appropriate for the setting.
- Add your personal touches to things. You are on a first date for a reason. The other person saw something in you that sparked their interest. Go with that, but keep it simple and don’t go over the top.
- Casual dates such as the movies or a casual lunch or even something as creative as bowling. The outfit choice is simple: T-shirt, jeans and any kind of shoe. Very simple. Very easy.
- If the date is a nice dinner or a social event then try to dress it up a bit. Again, use common sense. Gauge you attire on where you will be.
Above all, don’t fake it. Be yourself. The ultimate essence of style: being you and owning it!
