Thinking Process For Your First Date Attire
What should you do if you have a date coming up and you starting to think what you should wear to a specific date? You can always put something on and go on your date, however, if we think about it, what you wear is actually making a statement about you. Therefore, thinking process is extremely important part of your decision.
First step is to ask yourself: What time is my date?
- Is it weekend Brunch?
- Is it a Dinner?
- Maybe it’s a set up date by your mutual friend?
These three questions are really important to think about prior to your date, because it will set you up for a successful date. Whether, you will click with your date or not is not important at your thinking process and preparation stages.
Now, let’s break it down
Number one mistake almost every guy makes is overdressing or underdressing. Its weekend date and on top of that its Brunch, you want to think of it as more East Style. Something like, denim and button down shirt (tucked in or untucked). The main reason why you want to dress Easy Style, is because you don’t want to intimidate your date or create a tense environment by overdressing. By triggering these feelings, your date may feel uncomfortable, less important, underdressed, less confident. If on the other hand, you are underdressed, then all these feelings may apply to you. This is the reason why it is very important to have your thinking cap on before your date for your attire selection. My other advice for you to be on the safe side is to standout by wearing nice Accessories (Nice Watch, Bracelets, and Belt).
This all depends where you are having a dinner and I really hope that you pick a great place. Picking a right place for a dinner is a statement in itself and tells your date a lot about you and your character. When thinking, going out for a dinner on your first date, dressing formal to less formal would be ideal. One important fact once again, is that you are at the same level your date. You can definitely go for a suit and tie or you might skip tie and instead add pocket square. Keep in mind that color and pattern combination are as significant as you wearing a suit. Bottom line is that you want to look dapper for your dinner date.
Set up date by your mutual friend:
This type of date always sets you up for a mistake or failure, because you think you will be at the comfort level since your friend will be there. This is where things go wrong majority of the time and not taking this type of date seriously and thinking though everything, is a recipe for a disaster. Here, it is required from you to think outside of the box. First, I would say to reach out to your friend who is setting you up and ask what he or she is wearing so you have an idea. If whoever is setting you up is your girlfriend, then the chances are that your date reached out to her are very high. The reason behind my thought process is because you want to find out what they are wearing, so in an instance you thinking to wear something that will make you standout, also will make you blend in with the group. If you follow these suggestions, you will see a big difference and I guarantee you that you will be able to enjoy and have an awesome time with your friends and your date.
