Have you ever wondered why that girl from bar never called you back? The conversation came easy, drinks were flowing, you could feel chemistry, and you were dressed to killÖor were you?
Your mother always told you that you only get one chance to make a first impression and first impressions can make or break you. Women look at every last detail, from your tasseled shoes to amount of goop you have in your hair. Be honest guys, women arenít only ones who try on five different outfits before deciding what to wear for a night out on town. And it is perfectly normal. But how do you know which outfit is right one to impress girl on your first date?
Let me take you through it step by step. Clothes arenít only thing a woman looks at when youíre dressing to impress; itís whole package. Fortunately or not, outside is what she sees first. What you see is sometimes what you get. So what do you wear?
Out with OldÖ
Rule number one is: donít under dress. Guys have a tendency to pull on a pair of pants and first shirt they find and head out door. You have to look put-together, like some sort of effort was made for her. So take those ratty, old tennis shoes and toss Ďem! Take your t-shirts with big, loud prints and forget about them! And yes, women think carpenters are sexy but that doesnít give you green light to wear your paint-stained jeans. The solution is simple. Ask a friend (male or female) over day of your big date. Not only will they help calm your nerves but theyíll also give you their honest opinion on your chosen outfit. Second, an iron can also be a manís best friend. Youíd be surprised what a little pressing can do to change your look. Finally, donít rush! Thereís nothing wrong with taking an extra half hour to prepare. If you take time to get ready, your date will take time to notice.
ÖIn with New
So while first rule might seem simple enough, some guys might take it too far, which brings us to rule number two: donít overdress. We donít expect you to know all latest fashion trends of day and we donít expect you to follow them either. This second rule doesnít only deal with being a label whore but also with men going overboard; that is to say those men donít know when enough is enough. While some guys take a shirt, smell it and decide whether or not it is clean, others think their shirt has to say Hugo Boss, Armani, or Ralph Lauren to look good. So letís make your sweater selection. Stay away from Grandmaís knitted birthday gift and nipple shirts. The former screams little kid while latter leaves nothing to imagination. The tight shirt may not be an option if youíre not comfortable enough with your body, but if you are physically fit, why not let woman imagine whatís under there to maintain an element of mystery. You canít go wrong with a button shirt, leaving first couple of buttons at top undone. Itís casual, comfortable, and classic.
