If you’re online dating, you need to stand out. You could do this with your good looks or witty banter…but, if we’re being honest, you’re better off just holding a cute cat. Offset your cynical use of household pets with a subtle button-down collar denim shirt.
Now your profile picture is sorted, it’s time to return the cat, stretch your thumb and get swiping. You’re probably going to need to put a few hours in, so it’s advisable to wear something comfortable – we recommend joggers and a striped t-shirt, taken from our Scandi Sport trend.
When it comes to what to wear on a date, you need to think about what your outfit says about you. Looking like you’ve made too much of an effort is probably a bad thing, so leave the tuxedo and bow tie at home. For a casual date, stick with the tried-and-tested biker jacket.
If, however, you’re pushing the boat out – your outfit should reflect your surroundings. What to wear to dinner is a tricky decision, but a dark roll-
neck jumper, slim blazer and a well-rolled pocket square are the best choices for a flash date.
Whatever type of date you’ve got planned, you pretty much can’t go wrong with this outfit. You’ll be prepared for anything in spring’s essential layer – the Harrington jacket – a white stand collar shirt and ripped black jeans.
Despite your obvious charm, your in-no-way-smutty chat-up lines and your excellent table manners, some dates are just hard work. If you’re worried your date is going to end up this way, you might as well be prepared in classic workwear, such as this wool blend shacket.
