What color is your hair? Is your skin tone light or dark, with freckles or not? Shirt choices like soft blue are more traditional and help direct your date's attention toward your face. Plus it helps you not look like an undertaker or mobster. Which shirt colors do you like, other than black?
Of course just like many colours (except white which almost goes with everything ) it is not versatile but it it's easier to deal with than a navy shirt
I am Caucasian with light skin tone , dark black curly hair and might grow beard as well so I guess with black outfit I would look fine and no freckles
I love Blue but I am tired of it
I have a light blue oxford , striped blue shirt , striped blue poplin shirt , even a contrast collar blue oxford but I don't have any shirt of dark color .. surlrisingly at all (Navy Blue / Black / Grey ... etc )
I thought of a Navy shirt but I will have to either pair it with dark blue jeans ( And I would prefer chinos for a dinner/date) or Navy chinos which must be of the same shade (Which will be exhausting to find and I have tried pairing a navy pima polo with a navy chinos of different shade and they weren't really good together) or Grey chinos (Not bad)
