An intellectual guy isn't going to be impressed by a woman who shows too much skin and wears six-inch heels, so you'll want a toned-down look to fit his. If you are meeting casually at his favorite coffee shop, slip on a pair of cotton trousers, a soft blouse or pullover sweater and your favorite flats. For a dressier date, try a pair of dress slacks or a pencil skirt with a matching jacket and a satin tank underneath. A sheath dress that hits at the knees is another option if you want to look dignified yet show off your curves at the same time. A pair of low-heeled sling backs would be perfect with either outfit.
Understated make-up would be better suited for a date with an intellectual man. For a casual date, stick to light foundation, soft blush, a hint of eye shadow, a touch of mascara and a soft-colored lip color. If he is taking you out on the town, add a little more color, line your eyes and brighten your lip color. Try staying with softer tones that suit your complexion. You want him to be listening intently to what you have to say, not blinded by your bright red lipstick.
Intellectual guys are generally well-versed in a variety of topics so finding something you can both talk about should not be an issue. Ask him about books he's read recently, the most interesting place he's ever visited or why he choose his career field. Share with him a few topics that interest you to see if you have any interests in common. Try to stick to safe topics and avoid any political or religious discussions or you may not make it to date number two.
