MUST READ: Great Tips On How To Dress For A Romantic Date

Most men are at sea on what to wear on dates; whether on a first date or otherwise. You do not have to be a style buff to look amazing when going on a date.

Below, are some well thought out tips, to help you look your best on whatever dates you maybe going on in the future.

Causal Dates: Casual dates allow for a relaxed outfit, but that should not be abused. Stay away from clothes that make it seem like you did not put in any effort into dressing – no plain blue jeans, sweat pants, running shoes ( except it is a jogging date). Dark wash jeans, paired with collared shirts, or a dress shirt and sports jacket, are really good combinations for a casual date. Make sure to wear a leather belt, with a pair of similarly coloured leather shoes.

Dinner Dates: This means you should wear a jacket. For events that do not require a suit, look to a blazer jacket. Refer to my older posts on this Style column, which states how to wear your suits.
No matter how informal the date is, pay attention to your shoes. Shoes say a lot about you, so ensure they clean, functional and stylish.
Grooming Tips
1. Make sure to get your hair trimmed, but never try something new with your hair before a date. It is definitely not the right time to experiment.
2. Make sure to wear a nice cologne. Certain colognes can make you more attractive, but make sure it is not overpowering.
3. Make sure to clean fingernails, and trim nose hair, so you come across as tidy.
4. Make sure to shower an hour before you leave.

General Tips
1. Ensure your clothing is interchangeable, so it is easy for you to switch if necessary.
2. Wear a stylish accessory. A stylish detail like a pocket square in your jacket breast pocket, a boutonnière on your lapel, or a quality watch on your wrist, can elevate your style.
3. Focus on looking stylish, not dressing up. The goal is to look snazzy, not to dress up.
4. If you do not feel confident in what you are wearing, do not wear it.
5. Make sure to wear clothes that fit you.

I am sure with all the tips I have given, you would definitely become a Style Star at this holiday season!

Until another time, remain stylish!
