Some dressing tips to impress her on your first date

  • If you are going out with her for the first time, avoid wearing a tie unless it’s absolutely necessary. You can also opt for a jacket or sweater if required. Always wear a nice and clean shirt paired with a well fitted cargo, or a trouser, or even a pair of jeans depending upon the location of the date. Do not dress shabbily.

  • Avoid wearing khakis, bleached or faded jeans. A striped shirt can do wonders for you. The shirt should fit well and properly ironed. A wrinkled shirt gives an impression of a messy and careless personality. Shoes also make an impression on your first date. Wear those that are comfortable, not sweaty and they should be suitable for the place of date.


  • If you have a masculine personality, a tight sports jacket will enhance your masculinity. A glimpse of your broad shoulders and your muscular chest will surely attract women. A woman can easily judge a man by the way he moves his shoulders and arms. So by dressing properly, you can show your positive attributes.


  • Women like men who smell good. A good smell can make your date fall for you, therefore put on mild cologne or a perfume while going for the first date, but do not overdo it. Keep your hands and hair clear as women have the habit of analysing the details. Women get attracted to guys who are clean and show healthy habits.
