OK, here's my problem. I have a date this coming weekend and I'm not really sure what to wear. He is a very handsome 20-something college guy, very sophisticated, athletic, etc, etc.
I was thinking of wearing black.
Would it be proper for me to wear a black pinstripe button-up shirt with a black tailored gabardine suit coat? Also, could I wear a blue or blue-green paisley tie?...or a solid black tie? If I do wear all black, could I wear just one piece of costume jewelry as a tie tack...or should I wear a real jewel?
With black pants, socks and dress shoes, would I be overdoing it a little? Or should I just simply go casual with a light blue dress shirt-short sleeved, with khakis and slip-ons....with maybe a black baseball cap? Would I be "dating" myself if I were to also wear my original Gucci wristwatch with the green/red bezel?
I don't think that I should wear white....not on a first date, however I realize that first impressions are so very important so any ideas would be simply marvelous.
