Dressing up for the first date with that special one can cause a lot of apprehension and anxiety for both men and women alike. Each of them tries their best to impress the other on their first date and want to appear as attractive as possible. Men are especially more jittery because it is difficult for them to comprehend what a woman likes or dislikes as they think women are a more complicated lot. Illustrated below are a few tips that can guide a man as to what points to keep in mind while dressing up for his first date with his special one.
Do not wear stripes even if you have to go directly from your office to meet your special one. The sight of stripes can put any girl off. The first thing that would come to her mind would be a “zebra” when she looks at you (certainly you don’t want to remind her of a zebra every time she sees you). You would want her to remember you for who you actually are, so dress up in casual clothes depending on the timing of your date (whether it is a daytime date or an evening time) and even if you are heading for a date from your office be sure to wear a light colored solid collared shirt and just chuck off the tie.
Avoid wearing Tees that have cheesy slogans emblazoned on them. T-shirts with decent messages are okay but not the cheesy ones. They can create a very bad impression on the girl’s mind especially on the first date. Give careful thought to what you wear as the first impression is the best impression and a lasting impression. Certainly you would love to meet your special one for a second, a third, ………time, so do not scare her way with your roguish appearance on the first time itself.
Never use flashy, ostentatious accessories such as a gaudy piece of jewelry, a golden tooth, a belt with a shiny stone buckle (commonly worn by rappers). A girl would expect to be dating a normal looking decent guy (not a hip-hop rapper) on her date. Basically it implies that not to overdo things, just be your usual self. Use accessories which are sporty and trendy like a good sports watch, a belt that is stylish but not anything flashy or shiny or too outlandish.
One of the most important things to remember when going for your first date is to never use any accessory made of animal skin, for example a crocodile skin leather belt, shoes made from cow’s hide, a wallet made cow’s hide, jackets of animal skin. Not many females like these expensive leather accessories and may find it cruel especially with organizations like PETA spreading widespread awareness among the public with regards to the cruelty meted out to the animals during the process of making leather with the use of animal skin. So beware of portraying yourself as being insensitive and an enemy of animals (remember the phrase love me, love my dog stands true even today).
Keep these important points in mind and brace yourself for your first encounter with your special one in a confident manner.
