What clothes do women like men to wear?

How you dress can have a huge impact on how you are perceived. Dressing in a particular way can improve your looks immensely- no plastic surgery needed. If you are looking to impress the ladies, then follow these tips to instantly approve your appeal.

Collared shirts

You may be comfortable in your tee shirt, but dressing properly makes women swoon. Simply switching your tee shirt for a shirt with a collar can make all the difference to your appearance. You will look more respectable and more in control of your life.

Sexy shoes

Shoes are one of the first things about you that women notice. If you have a movie-star smile but are wearing crocs on your feet, then girls will not look at you twice. Invest in some sleek and classic shoes such as Oxfords or loafers, preferably in leather.

Tight jeans

A pair of tight jeans will show off your assets. Plenty of women are into men with cute bottoms. Show that you’re one of them with a pair of slim-fitting jeans that shows you off.

Leather jacket

Be the bad-boy type that she has always wanted in a luxurious leather jacket. Most outfits can only be improved with the addition of a black leather jacket. Wearing a jacket is especially an asset on a date, as you can offer for her to wear it in an act of thoughtfulness that is sure to impress.

Facial hair

Technically, facial hair is not clothing. However, it is worth mentioning that many women love a bearded man. To some women, a full beard is attractive; to others, a stubbly five-o-clock shadow does the trick. The most important aspect of your facial hair is what suits you best. If you think you look good with a bit of chin fuzz, then go for it. Many women will approve.

How to dress for a second date

You survived the first date, but unfortunately you also wore your only suitable dinner outfit. How can you put together a stylish second date outfit in a pinch?

You need a different top

You can easily wear the same black jeans twice. Your date will be unlikely to notice, and even a sharp-eyed woman who picks up on it will not judge you too harshly for recycling your pants. However, your top needs to be completely different. A patterned shirt would be ideal. It is not as informal as a tee shirt, but is more relaxed than a suit shirt.

No runners

You are only on your second date, so you still need to put your best foot forward. This means no runners. You cannot bring out the ugly shoes until long after you are officially a couple. If you have a second pair of dress shoes that you did not wear on your first date, wear them. Otherwise, wearing the same shoes twice is permissible provided they are plain enough.


Jewelry can change your entire look from mediocre to stylish. It also provides a talking point. If there is an awkward silence, your date is likely to fill the time with asking if there is a story behind the necklace you are wearing. It also helps if there is a story, and if that story is not “my ex got it for me”.

Do not wear a watch

If you are wearing a watch, you may glance at it. This is not what you should be doing on a date, unless you are trying to convey that it is going poorly. Not wearing a watch means that the temptation to keep an eye on the time is gone, and hopefully you will be focusing on enjoying your evening instead.

How to dress for a dinner date

Don’t underestimate how important your outfit is on a dinner date. A woman will always judge you on your outfit, but dinner dates have that extra air of formality which means you will be even more harshly evaluated. On the upside, this gives you more opportunity to impress with your killer sense of style.


Dress as fancy as the restaurant

Hopefully it goes without saying that if you’re headed to a fancy restaurant, you should dress accordingly. A pair of pants (not shorts!) and a shirt are a good start. If you’re comfortable wearing a patterned shirt, do so. Depending on your personal style, you may want to accessorise with a bow tie.

No hats at dinner

Hats can be a great accessory, but not at the dinner table. Don’t even wear a hat for the way there, because you’ll need to take it off once you’re seated and she will then be staring at your hat hair all evening.

Nothing fiddly

You’re bound to be nervous and perhaps even a little uncomfortable, particularly if it’s a first date. Many people have the nervous habit of fiddling with whatever is at hand, be that a necklace, a loose button or cutlery. I can’t help you out when it comes to cutlery, but cull anything that you might fiddle with from your outfit. It doesn’t matter how good it looks if you’re going to play with it!

The right shoes… and socks!

Nothing less than dress shoes will do for a dinner date. A pair of brogues will show that you have a sense of what’s appropriate, without being too rigid. Leather oxfords are the way to go when you’re headed to a particularly fancy restaurant.

The perfect shoes can be rendered horrendous by the wrong socks. If you’re wearing dark shoes and pants, wear dark socks! There are few fashion crimes worse than white socks with a pair of dark leather shoes.

Have a nice wallet

Inevitably at the end of a date, somebody has to pay. Often that will be you. You will undo her impression of you as a style god if you then whip out the same wallet you’ve had since you were fourteen. A quality leather wallet will help complete your look.
