First Date Clothes for Dummies

Fashion-impaired? Foolproof first date gear for every situation.
You’ve picked the perfect spot, you've got the script from Notting Hill committed to memory and you even remembered to wear deodorant. But, while those things are important, what you wear ranks just as high on the list. Show up at a nice restaurant in a ratty band T-shirt and she won't likely care about the fact that you both love sushi and Fight Club; she’ll be too busy wondering which room of your parents' house you got dressed in that morning.

Here are five first-date scenarios—from drinks at your favorite pub to a good old-fashioned walk in the park—and all that you need to dress to impress.
