Tips for Looking Your Best on a Date

Listen to this article

Looking your best on a date is one of the easiest ways to impress before you even speak immediately. Some aspects of our appearance highlight our attractiveness and make us stand out. A first impression is created the moment you meet, and there is potential to build on positive first impressions throughout the date. This article will outline tips to enhance your attractiveness in your date’s eyes.

Hold Your Body up With Good Posture

Good posture is the key to looking your best on a date, and good posture doesn’t just mean standing straight and tall. It means holding yourself with confidence and poise, even when doing something as simple as sitting down.


Remember: no one likes a slouch! If you want to be taken more seriously in life and at work, then it’s essential that you learn how to stand up straight (even if sometimes it feels unnatural). With good posture comes confidence – one reason why so many people who are great at their jobs are also known for having great postures is that they can do their jobs better when they feel confident about themselves.

Dress for the Date

You want to convey your personality and make an excellent first impression—but more importantly, you want to be comfortable. If you don’t feel good in what you’re wearing, it will show how you act and how others perceive you.

Dress for the Date

One of the biggest mistakes you can make on a first date is to be late. If you’re running late and know it, call the person or send a text message letting them know you’ll be a few minutes behind schedule.

If you’re going out with someone who lives far away from where you live, don’t plan on leaving for your date at the last minute. Give yourself plenty of time to get there and show up early.

Look Your Best

  • Brush and floss your teeth before bed, then again in the morning. If possible, use whitening toothpaste to keep stains from building up on your teeth throughout the day
  • Use at-home teeth whitening products or see a dentist get professional bleaching for extra bright smiles
  • Get a haircut before the date if you haven’t had one recently. Ensure it’s clean and well-groomed but not too styled; too much product can be off-putting during an intimate evening out
  • If you have thick hair, consider styling it in loose waves or another natural texture that works with your face shape instead of straightening it completely (unless you love the look). A more casual hairstyle shows that you care more about comfort than looking perfect all night—and that can be just as attractive!

Get a Manicure and Pedicure

This is an important step that many people neglect, but it’s worth the time and money to take care of your hands and feet before the big date. You don’t need to go overboard with this one—make sure to pick a color that you feel comfortable with since there’s no way to hide them if they’re not up to par.


Don’t choose a too loud or too dark color: If you have pale skin, do not go for bright red or maroon as your polish shade. The same goes for anyone with darker-toned skin; while these colors might look great on other people, they will make your hand appear smaller than it actually is (and therefore less attractive). On the flip side, don’t pick something so light that it’s barely visible—you want something that makes an impact without being overpowering or garish.

Be Yourself

You should be relaxed for the date, but there’s a difference between being relaxed and too comfortable. Your nervousness makes you more attractive than if you were trying to be cool or witty at all times (and it shows your interest in the other person). You should try to let go of any worries and just be yourself. If you’re worried about forgetting something, write notes beforehand so that when you see him or her, they’ll know what’s on your mind and can help guide the conversation in that direction if needed. This will also help avoid awkward silences during dinner!

Looking your best on a date isn’t difficult; it just requires that you take the time to think things through a bit. A little thought and planning can go a long way towards helping you feel confident on your date and potentially putting your best foot forward as far as first impressions are concerned.
