Aside from verbally saying the right things (see: 50 First Date Conversation Starters), what you wear is key to making a great first impression and, ultimately, landing that second date.
Kicking things off in a less formal setting means you're in luck (no stiff suits for you!). But while it may be in a casual environment, this isn't a hall pass for wearing joggers and a t-shirt.
