Choosing Shoes for a First Date
We spend so much time picking out the perfect outfit for a first date that we often forget about a super important part of that outfit-- the shoes! Even when we do remember the importance of the shoes, we usually pay less attention to them than we do the actual attire. And this doesn’t just go for the ladies. Men typically worry about their outfits, too, and the last thing they think about is choosing the shoes to match.
When it comes to choosing shoes for a first date, make no mistake-- the shoes matter! Your entire presentation matters, not just parts of it. Not to mention, the shoes you wear are usually the most expensive part of your outfit and they say a lot about your personality. So, which shoes are good candidates for complementing your outfit on that all-important first date? And should men worry about their shoes as much as women do?
Keep the following tips in mind to make a great first impression.
Keep it simple-- A first date is not the time to be flashy with your footwear. Don’t opt for outrageous shoes that distract your date or threaten to throw your ensemble out of balance. A plain, sharp style will do the trick.
Be practical-- Choose a style that suits your outfit and your fashion sense, but most importantly, choose a style that suits the occasion. Wear a shoe that is appropriate for wherever it is you are going on your date. For example, don’t choose the same type of shoe you’d wear out to the movies for a formal dinner gala date.
Don’t be cheap-- You won’t impress your date by asking them to pay for everything, and you won’t impress them with cheap-looking footwear, either. Regardless of how casual your outfit may be, opt for a shoe that is high quality and stylish.
A poorly-made shoe will look bad and feel uncomfortable, and your date will notice how it reflects on you. This is especially true for men. Invest in shoes as you would the haircut or the outfit!
Next time you need to make a great first impression, keep these tips in mind so you end up choosing shoes for a first date for women that will flatter you, not hinder you.
