First date ideas and outfits for men


Your first date is your first chance to make a good impression so we all know the pressure that comes with choosing the perfect outfit. When choosing your outfit, you also have to bear in mind the location of your date to make sure you wear something stylish and appropriate for the occasion. Picking the right location for your date is essential but wearing clothes to match is crucial. Here are some alternative date ideas with the perfect outfits to match from Designer Menswear.

Date Idea 1 - Karaoke Bar

A Karaoke bar is a fun twist on the simple idea of drinks, as you have a lot more entertainment and ultimately a lot more to talk about. On a first date, you can never really be sure if conversation will go smoothly, but at a karaoke bar as long as there is entertainment, there will be conversation. Massive plus if you can actually sing – get up there and show your date your vocals! For a karaoke date you want to wear something smart casual and maybe spice it up with some fancy accessories like a hat or glasses. Try a dark skinny jean with ankle boots, a nice fitted t-shirt and a hat to add some chic. You will look stylish and confident – perfect for if you are going to be getting on stage for a sing along. If your first date lands in the summer or on a hot day, you may not want to get to know your date inside away from the sun – so why not show your creative side with a romantic picnic for 2. You can both get involved and cook something each, maybe show off some skills to impress your date. A picnic is a perfect first date for the outdoorsy types, you could get active and play some games or even bring your dogs along if you are dog lovers. There are so many ways to bond and have fun on a picnic date. For this type of date, you want to make sure you are wearing something comfortable and airy. Try pairing some stylish shorts with a nice simple polo shirt and some trainers so you are prepared for all activities that could occur on your fun picnic date. Also, don’t forget to pack your sunglasses so you can see your date through the sun’s rays!

Date Idea 2 – Picnic

Date Idea 3 – Fancy Dinner

A perfect first date idea for those who really want to impress and woo their date. A classic choice, but one that will never fail as far as first date ideas are concerned. On the plus side, even if your date didn’t go to plan at least you get a good meal out of it! If it is your first date you do not want to scare her off so don’t go full on suit and tie, try a more relaxed look of suit pants and a shirt, as this will give a serious and well put together, but still relaxed and chilled-out look. Dressing sharp for your date shows respect, and your date will spend time making sure she is dressed for the occasion, so the least you can do is return the favour. If you do want to add a jacket it is never a bad idea as a jacket has time and time again been shown to help men look more masculine and authoritative.

Date Idea 4 – Movie

Going to the movies is a great idea for a first date as it can take away the awkwardness of sitting opposite someone you know nothing about and trying to find topics of conversation. You will always have topic of conversation after you’ve viewed the same movie together and can find out if you have anything in common such as sense of humour etc. You can also learn a lot about how your date is going by reading the body language of your date. People don’t realise how much they say without actually saying a word. For a date to the movies you want to wear something casual and comfortable as you won’t get to enjoy the film if you aren’t feeling comfortable. Try something trendy like styling some ripped jeans with a check shirt. You could also bring a leather jacket for extra trendiness and warmth – as it always gets chilly in those movie theatres!

Date Idea 5 – Amusement Park

A perfect first date for the thrill seekers and adrenaline junkies out there, just maybe make sure your date isn’t scared of rides first, or else you might be riding them alone! The long lines give you plenty of time to talk and get to know each other better and you will be entertained all day and be creating memories together. It is also such a relaxed date where the main focus is to just let loose and have fun – no pressure on an amusement park date. For this kind of date that is going to be fun-packed there is no pressure to dress up as I guarantee your date will not be turning up in heels to an amusement park. You will want to wear something comfortable and casual for this kind of date. Try a nice pair of shorts for extra comfort levels (or jeans depending on the weather) with a casual t-shirt and make sure you are wearing some comfortable trainers as you will be on your feet all day and running from thrill to thrill.
