Wear a crisp shirt but keep it casual.
There are a lot of choices on how to choose a shirt for your date. We can get worked up over to find our perfect shirt. But keep it simple and choose a color which goes well with your skin tone.
Scientifically light colored tends to lighten the mood and make others happy. And dark colored gives an attractive signal.
If you have a problem choosing between shirts, just choose one for now. Go on with your pants and accessories and finally come back to compare. It will be easier to choose then.
Don’t forget your wristwatch, it’s a game-changer.
You may love your sports-watch but going for a classic metallic strap or just the usual (brown and black) one is way better. If you like, match the color of the watch with your shoes looking fashionable.
Prefer comfort over looks. The more comfortable you are, the more confident you look. Don’t let your watch be too tight or too loose.
Wear comfortable pants that fit well.
Choosing proper pants is as important as salt in food. We can’t see the salt in food but it is needed for the taste.

Analyze your date dress before wearing it.
Remember to scan your dress properly front and back for any unwanted stain or dirt. Don’t let the crease take over your shirt.
Iron it if necessary. Remember the key is to keep it clean and simple.

Don’t say it, show it.

Also trimming or shaving your hair on your hands will improve your skin tone. So go ahead and fold your sleeves. Check out this non-sponsored web page for having a better understanding of skin tone.
Smell nice and look nice.
Apply a spray of perfume over your neck too. It adds to the usual. Don’t overdo it, it may be too strong for her.
Drizzle a few drops of rose water rich in Vitamin E. You can have hair spray with you and apply it just before you meet her (totally optional).
Avoid using too much cosmetics. It won’t smell nice when all put together. Little facial cream and moisturizer is enough.
Understand your shape, wear accordingly.
You may say that you are too thin or your belly comes out. That should not be your obstacle. Just wear a jacket if you are thin and a loose shirt if you think your belly comes out.
Most girls say they attract for the six pack but in truth they just want someone to create super emotions for them. Dressing properly makes a great first impression.
