OUTFIT ESSENTIALS - WHAT YOU'LL NEED...
Whether you’re going on your first or thousandth date, it pays
to think about what you wear.
When it comes to the dating game, every man worth his salt will know that he’ll gain nothing from being lazy (in both what he wears and what he plans). And when it comes to your outfit, there are an inordinate amount of ways to mix things up without breaking the bank. The first thing to remember is the importance of always making an effort, because while no one expects you to be the most on-trend man in the room nor the most polished, it’s worth doing everything you can to be the most put-together.
Make The Change
The sooner mankind realises that life doesn’t have to be about outlandish and over-the-top gestures, the better. Trying something new – paired with a decent dose of confidence – is a great way to make an impact. The smallest change can make the biggest difference and what’s important is that you are actually taking the steps to mix things up, rather than remaining complacent. Grab a new jacket , mix up your footwear or raise your accessory game: You don’t need to go over-the-top, but you do at least need to have made a go of it.
Wear Something New
The old adage of “if you look good, you feel good” could not be more true in this case. Who doesn’t want to feel good on a date? The success of most dates can almost always be put down to the way each person feels and, subsequently, how they look. So, if you’ve had your eye on something for a while but have yet to click confirm, do it now. Stepping out in a brand new piece of clothing that you know raises the bar is a brilliant way to achieve date night success, no matter how long you’ve been in the game for.
There are few men out there who would shy away from a bit of extra help in the height department, so why not choose your footwear accordingly? If you’re looking to invest in new pieces that are date-night appropriate, then the turn of the new season is the perfect time to do so. Shoes on the smarter end of the scale tend to have a little bit of extra height, so favour styles such as the brogue or Chelsea boot in place of lower, less flattering shapes.
