Last week you I introduced you my wonderful, attractive stylist friend Erin, who told you what to wear for summer dating. This post is a follow up to that piece. It tells you what to wear for summer dating when dealing with accessories. Most men don't realize how much fashion choices impact their success with women. Whether you need the right look for that first date, special event or just a night out at the bar, it is important to look your best. Looking your best is another helpful tool for feeling your best. Listen, if I am totally into a guy, it doesn't matter what he wears, at least not in the beginning. But as a woman, if I am ever “sitting on the fence” little things like their style and accessories come into play. They can either make me more attracted or turn me off completely. Don't give women a chance to waiver! Read the Erin's list of fashion do's and don'ts to ensure you always select the proper accessories.

What To Wear For Summer Dating – Accessories Every Man Must Have Shoes: While snake skin or square-toed shoes were once considered in vogue currently they are not. Right now the trend is the “winged tip” or “oxford” look. Boat shoes have also made quite the comeback. For a more casual look you could either wear a sneaker or a sandal. Low top black Converse All Stars have proven to be the classic sneaker of choice. Also the cream colored sneaker shown is a great option for dressy casual events. Do not wear flip-flops unless at the beach. Avoid hiking inspired looking sandals completely. Instead opt for a classic simple leather criss-cross sandal that hugs the foot. I prefer a dark brown leather sandal to a light colored one.
Jewelry: Stay away from novelty necklaces, dog tags, puka shells and anything that lights up. Men should keep their jewelry simple and understated. Preferably your jewelry will have some sentimental value, which will make great for a conversational piece. Also a bold watch is an excellent way to “flash” with out being “flashy”. Sunglasses: If you can afford to spend a little extra on sunglasses I would say this is a wise investment. Avoid pairs that have a hologram reflection, colorful tint, that have a huge logo on them or that wrap around (Oakly's). Instead opt for an aviator, Wayfarer or other such style-savvy shape.
Grooming: Maintenance should be on your regular to-do list for life. Men's hair should be cleaned up every three weeks, and nails need to be trimmed every 10 days. Facial hair can either work for you or against you. Do not overly “man-scape” your face. A five o-clock shadow is much better than a perfectly trimmed beard. You want to appear masculine and rugged. Think George Clooney. Smooth skin is also a necessity. I notice that a lot of men have dry flaky skin or oily skin with blackheads. You must own a good skin scrub. This will help you clean your skin and will rid you of dry flakes and black heads. Also pick up some crest white strips and a pack of gum. With modern technology there is no excuse for yellow teeth and bad breath. Hair: Hair is like fashion. It is always changing. Make sure that you have an updated cut and are not stuck in a time warp holding on to the glory days. I would suggest to stop going to Super Cuts and would opt for a trendier salon. Hair is very important and it's best to leave this up to a professional. Avoid using gel, hair spray or mousse. Pomade, wax and sculpting paste are better products that will give you the right texture for your hair. If you have thinning hair longer hairstyles only serve to accentuate what's already gone, but a closer crop will maximize coverage. Whatever you do, do not comb it over! Also avoid using too much hair product. Strands of hair end up clumping together only to bare all for world to see. So use sparingly.
