If you’re going on a date, and you want to look your best, it’s important to choose the proper color for that occasion. Wearing the wrong color can give off the wrong vibes, so it’s important to know what colors work best for you. Take a look at this guide of colors and what they say about your personality, and make sure to wear them on your next date!

When you’re on a date, there are a few things to consider. First, finding the right outfit can be tough. It’s best to pick something comfortable and cute. After all, what good is looking great if you can’t enjoy yourself? Another consideration is how long your date is going to last. If it’s just a quick coffee or a bite at a nearby diner, then you don’t need much — just enough for some small talk before you head back home again. If it’s more than that, though, then you should probably have something more appropriate in mind — like a casual but chic dress or pantsuit to wear over your favorite t-shirt or varsity sweater

We all know the importance of color and how it effects others’ perception of you when you wear it. (Red for intensity, orange for optimistic and social, blue for loyal.) The struggle of choosing the perfect outfit for a particular occasion is already real enough, but add the consideration of color psychology to the mix and it’s near impossible. To play it safe, we often default to the basics. Or, as we like to think of it here at BAZAAR, the classics. Head-to-toe black—with white sprinkled in for good measure—is our uniform of choice. And now, a new study is backing up what we’ve always known: black is best.

British wholesale company Buy T-Shirts Online (a supplier for companies like American Apparel) conducted a survey of 1,000 people in which they asked participants to match colors with associated personality traits.

Black was the leader for nearly every positive quality, including confidence, intelligence and sexiness, which makes it a top choice for everything from interviews to first dates and weddings. In case you’re questioning the authority of such findings, Quartz noted the preference and positive power of black has been similarly verified by trusted scientific studies in the past.

Red was a favorite of men for women, when asked what they’d find most attractive on the opposite sex—women also selected the color of passion when asked what they’d feel most sexy in on a first date. However, arrogance and a lack of intelligence were also top associations with the fiery hue, making it a sub-par option for professional settings.

The colors you should absolutely never wear when trying to impress: orange and brown. Because orange is definitely not the new black.


Most men can’t tell their reds apart from their maroons.

This inability to tell colours apart is something that irks women and makes them roll their eyes at the species called men in utter frustration. If you are one such bloke, then it is high time you get some good old gyaan on colours: which ones to wear and which ones to avoid. Every colour suggests something about the person who wears it, it can add or take away from your personality and can enhance your masculinity or bring out your softer side.
So don’t underestimate the power of the colour of your clothes and read the following list to know the Best Colours you can wear on a Date.


Red is by far, the most bold, provocative and in-your-face colour. It represents passion, excitement, love and even lust. The person who wears reds lets his lady love know that he is confident, comfortable with who he is and with his sexuality. A red shirt or tee-shirt when paired with a pair of well-fitted jeans will complete your look and be good enough ammunition to woo your lady.


Black & White are the staple wear-on-a-date colours. You can never over do or under mine a black / white coloured garment. Of course avoid going for the all-white1970s Jeetendra look but don’t think twice before teaming up a smart black shirt with a pair of well fitted black jeans. When in doubt what to wear, these colours can be a safe bet.


Blue is stereotyped to be an out and out boy colour, but as studies have it, women love the men in blue too. A good shade of blue – say sky blue or azure or navy blue – will bring out your skin tone and make you look chic and dapper. Blue emanates a feeling calmness, peace and loyalty – something that most women expect in a relationship and from their men.


The pink ganji look is immortalised by Saif Ali Khan in Salaam Namaste. While pink was erstwhile considered to be too girly a colour, men now have embraced it and are wearing it with aplomb. If you are going on a casual breakfast or movie date, team a plain round neck baby pink/peach tee with shorts. This uber cool look will please her eyes and aid in bringing out your casual/smooth side. (Dating, MensXP.com)
