Updated: Apr 27, 2023

Whether it's your first date or your hundredth, you'll want to look the part. Choose an outfit that displays your personality while yet matching the formality of where you're going. We're here to assist, and we've compiled a list of our best date-night ensembles. We'll give style tips and other expert guidance to help you dress to impress, in addition to outfit suggestions. Continue reading for our selections and date-night style advice.

So, if you really want to capture her heart, now is the time to prepare and arrange your big date, which can either be traditional or unconventional! If you know her well, you'll be aware of her hobbies, which you might utilise as inspiration for the ideal first date. If not, just trust your gut and keep things simple.

You'll be even more nervous if you don't know what to wear, and you'll most likely wind up putting something together at the last minute. Sure, you'll appear presentable, but it'll be clear that you rushed things.

Here is our top 7 picks :

In a white shirt

Take our word for it: no woman on the planet is immune to the allure of this sassy classic!

White shirts are to men what dresses are to women; they're unquestionably classics that, when worn correctly, can quickly identify you as a fashion genius. They also make you look very sophisticated, and they're not only for the boardroom. With these fashion techniques, you can give them a trendy makeover!

While ripped jeans are wonderful for men's casual ensembles, pristine black skinny jeans are ideal for guys of all ages! They'll look great with a crisp white shirt and a pair of traditional sneakers.

Polo Shirt

Polo shirts, while often associated with the preppy frat style, are actually fairly adaptable. If the weather is warm enough for a T-shirt but you want something a little nicer, a polo is a terrific option.

Polos with a lot of branding might be distracting, so opt for a simple polo in a neutral hue like navy or charcoal instead. In addition, instead of a jersey knit polo, use a pique knit polo. Piques have a more textured appearance and appear less sporty.

All time Fav Black

If you ask any male what his favourite colour is, he'll undoubtedly say black! This shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone, because black is always in style.

It's a timeless colour for your wardrobe that makes an impact everywhere you go. If bright colours make you feel uneasy, go with black. It can be styled in whatever way you like – with touches of other colours or kept monochrome.


T-shirts aren't ideal for every type of date, so keep that in mind. If a t-shirt is the focal point of your ensemble, you'll want to layer most of the time. A basic t-shirt, on the other hand, can go a long way.

If you have a midday meetup scheduled in the summer, a fitted (but not too tight) t-shirt with some excellent trousers and shoes can look great.

No problem if you need to layer–t-shirts may be used to create a variety of outfits. If you want to stand out a little more, go for a v-neck or a henley instead of the traditional crewneck.

Denim Look

There's no one-size-fits-all approach to 'denim,' as evidenced by the denim shirt in your closet or your beloved pair of worn-out jeans.

The best thing about denim is that it's not simply a fabric; it's a fashion statement. It allows you to match it with almost everything that comes to mind and allows for a lot of experimenting. Why not up the ante on your big date by wearing this wardrobe staple? Even though it's subtle, we think it'll work miracles!

Go with Jacket

When it comes to putting together an outfit, most men simply consider the basics, such as a t-shirt, pants, and shoes. Layering, on the other hand, is a crucial part of getting dressed.

It looks good on both the ladies and the guys they choose to go out with since it shows that you thought about it and didn't just pick the first two things that came to mind.

Suit is game changer

Although we promised you casual attire for men, semi-casual outfits for a date also meet the bill.

A stylish blue suit, we believe, will earn you extra brownie points with your special lady and ensure that you have a second and third date. Blue suits, like blue shirts, are a must-have in any man's wardrobe, particularly as an adult. So, even if you don't want to buy one for a date, buy one for other occasions!

What to wear on a dinner date

Whether you're meeting for a quick lunch or a fancy dinner date, you're probably thinking what to wear. In fact, 37% of men say their main concern when dining with their spouse or significant other is what to dress. * We understand that looking your best is expected, but your dinner date attire is mostly dictated by the location of your meeting.

As I previously stated, if you have a midnight date scheduled, the ambiance will most likely be a little more upscale.

You'll almost certainly require some additional heating. With that in mind, consider the following outfits for evening and nocturnal dates.


A jacket is a good choice if you need a little extra warmth (or just another layer).

There are several jacket styles to pick from, but the Harrington may be the greatest all-around option.

If your date is more casual, you could opt for a traditional leather jacket, but a Harrington is far more versatile, so it's a safe bet. If you're unsure what to wear for a first date for drinks, a jacket is a must-have.


Consider a fitted blazer for a more formal look.

Blazers are frequently associated with formal attire, but they may be dressed down by combining them into a smart casual ensemble. The colour and fabric of a blazer determine its formality.

Boots or Shoes

It's always better to err on the side of formality when it comes to footwear. That's not to say you shouldn't wear sneakers, but you shouldn't wear those filthy Chucks you've had for a decade.

In fact, depending on the period, they may seem overly formal. Loafers and boots are a couple notches down on the formality scale.

Outfits for a casual date

Our preferred men's casual date attire comprises of dark wash denim and a slim-fit sweater or long-sleeve henley if you're headed somewhere laid-back like a coffee shop or a bar. Instead of shoes, we recommend a fantastic pair of boots because it shows effort and makes the dinner date ensemble feel a little more unique. Remember to bring a jacket—a water-resistant coat if it's raining, or something warmer if it's cold.
