What men should wear to impress on their first date?

Updated on April 16, 2016

The Scent

The scent you wear has an impression of its own. The smell should never be overwhelming. The smell should be as brisk as possible. Just a couple of sprays of any cologne cologne should do the trick. Never mix cologne with scented lotion because it causes a mixture of smells .Below are some of my favorites for all budgets.

Recommended Colognes for all budgets

Scent (Alternative)

Here is the alternative to cologne . Do not mix these with any type of cologne. Bath and Body Works has a small collection of fragrances and lotions for men. Here is a few that will do the same effect as cologne. I got these bottles for 12$ each.

My 3 favorites from Bath and Body Works. Dark amber ( far left) has a clean woody masculine smell. Whitewater Rush(middle) has a soapy clean summer smell. white citrus (far right) has a grapefruit and orange cologne smell.

Clothing

Clothes should be comfortable for you to wear on your first date.They should define your classy side. No I am not saying wear a suit or dress clothes. I am saying wear something that you would wear to impress the person of your dreams. No khakis should be worn on dates, because khakis are professional. Most of the time professional and classy gets mixed to together. Lets just think about a buttoned up shirt long or short sleeves. If that does not work for you, lets think about denim button up shirts. These shirts are comfortable for every date for every type of person. They are easy to match and blend with. For bottoms lets think of just regular pants, nothing loud in color either. Something that is easy to match with and very clean looking. If pants are not your style go with FIT jeans. Notice that capital FIT in the last sentence. What makes you classy is that your jeans fit you, by that I mean not baggy. I personally do not shop for name branded clothing. I like simple casual and classy things like the pictures below.

Always iron your clothes

Shoes

Shoes are not a huge deal. Shoes should only compliment the outfit . Tennis shoes are key for a casual date. You can be classy in tennis shoes such as these below.

You can easily match these shoes with the clothes I have above.

Accessories

My favorite thing to blend with my clothing is my accessories. A nice necklace or chain will make your outfit twice as nice. Along with a bracelet and a watch. These things are not needed , but they will help you impress your partner. I have had my accessories receive as many compliments as my clothing. Gold jewelry looks better with darker clothing such as brown,black and red. Silver looks good with colors such as Blue, Denim, and white. Below are some of my favorite accessories.

The Verdict Is.

This style got me more and more dates with all types of women. They always say that I can dress very well. I do not keep up with the latest fashion, or fads. I am just a regular guy on a budget. What I learned is that you can look great without breaking the bank. Keep yourself groomed and well kept and dress nice and classy for your date. I wish you all luck.
