At Unforgettable Proposals when planning and arranging your special occasion we plan everything..even what we think you should wear. In today’s world, men can no longer get away with looking unkempt. In the 90′s men got away with baggy clothes, ripped jeans and flannel shirts and calling them “fashion statements.” But those days are long gone, and today we are faced with the ‘METRO SEXUAL’!
The women of today expect a man who knows how to dress. Women care for themselves, and expect the same for their other half. Women will also tend to judge a man on his appearance on a date from grooming to your smell and down to your shoes – everything is noticed and could potentially be a make or break interlude..
The first thing to think about when dressing for a first date is, of course, where you are going. If your going to Dinner your going to dress different than you would going to the movies. Wear clothes that fit you well and show off your best assets. Huge and oversized is not the way to go, nor is the too-tight and shiny approach.
Nice shoes are also a must. Whether you wear sneakers or wingtips, be sure they are clean and polished. Many women judge men by their shoes, which sounds silly, but is very true. A man, who takes care of his appearance, including a “small” detail such as footwear, is likely to take care of his apartment, his car, and in the future, her!
The key to dressing for a date is to let your personality shine through. If you have a funky style, an off-the-rack suit may not be right for you, but a vintage velvet jacket could be perfect. And if you are a buttoned up businessman, a playful look may not feel like you, and so you should wear something in which you feel confident and comfortable. Balance is the key to looking great. If you balance your personal style and the appropriate attire for your destination, you are sure to have many successful dates to come.
