We've shown you how to dress for a relaxed yet romantic summer picnic with your best girl, and how to attire yourself for a mid-week encounter at a premium chain café-bar. But now it's the big one: a first date at a proper nice restaurant with someone you're really into. With the pressure on, we've turned to someone who – as a stellar style expert, and a woman – truly knows what a man needs to throw on to an impress a female companion: ASOS personal stylist Gamze Gul.
'It's essential to make a good impression and this ensemble does just that,' explains Gamze. 'My advice is that you should never try out a brand new trend on a first date. Chances are you'll feel uncomfortable in it and that will make you appear uncomfortable to your date. Stick to the looks you know and understand – everyone has worn a suit at some point in their life, so it's a safe yet stylish bet.'
It's more than just your own self-confidence that should see you reaching for a slim-fit black suit, a crisp white button-down shirt and a well-polished pair of black kicks, according to our expert.
'Dress in a manner that shows you take her seriously,' Gamze advises. 'I'm a sucker for smart, well-groomed guys – it just shows they're making that extra effort. If you’re going out on a smart date with a smart woman, dress like a smart man.'
You can follow Gamze for daily style advice and edits here. And you can check in with any of our other stylists, male and female, for their take on what to wear for your next big date.
