Sure - you love being "ironic" or "hipster-y" or "millennial" by wearing your hipster millennial ironic t-shirts and jeans all the time, but guess what? You're taking a lady out on a date, so ACTUALLY dress up and try to look good for her. A simple suit and tie will suffice - it shows you've got class and want to impress her.

PRO-TIP! Don't forget to shave! Sure, you THINK that stubble looks cool, but nothing beats a clean-shaven gent!

You've got to be thoughtful - and what's a more thoughtful metaphor for your date than a bouquet of fresh flowers? They smell wonderful, look beautiful, and will remind your date of the lovely night the two of you shared together for the rest of the week!
