It can be nerve-racking to go on a date, especially if it is a surprise date where you're not exactly sure what you'll be doing! The main question that comes to every girl's head when planning for a date is
"But what do I wear?"
There is no need to worry! Today I will show you 5 date outfit ideas for the 5 main dates you may find yourself in. Feel free to customize them to your own personal style and use them as inspiration as to what a good outfit would consist of.
5 Date Outfit Ideas
The Fancy Dinner Date
Dinner dates are the most classic date choice by people dating. They are easy and give you a lot of opportunities to talk to either go to know someone or enjoy a deep conversation with someone you care for. However, finding the perfect outfit for a date like this can be a challenge - you don't want to be too fancy or too underdressed.
The best in-between option that you can never go wrong with is a black blazer dress. This is a classy yet cute option and paired with chunky low heels it looks amazing! It's not like you're trying too hard, but the perfect amount. If the idea of wearing long sleeves is way to warm for you then just find a blazer dress without sleeves; problem solved!
The Coffee Date
Coffee dates are great because they are super casual and if its a first date and not going to well you don't have to sit through a whole dinner until you can leave. This is also the best date to see how someone is in their everyday life - what's their casual look, do they drink coffee, how do they treat the workers.
A coffee date also opens up the possibility to do something else after - if everything goes well.
The best outfit for this type of date is something casual yet flattering and cute. A pair of high waisted jeans is always a good idea, paired with a knit tank top and comfy cardigan for airconditioned chills and you are set.
The Sports Date
Someone who asks you on a sports date for the first date is someone you can't trust. But if you know the person and it's after a few dates or time as a couple, a sports date can be really fun! Some activities may include a group game of some sport, mini-golfing, kayaking and more!
With a date like this, you don't want to be that person who is restricted because they wore the wrong pants. Therefore, it is important to wear clothes that allow you to move no matter what you end up doing.
The Casual Activity Date
A casual activity ranges from a day at the carnival, to a walk in the city or strolls on the beach to biking in the park and a picnic. No matter what the activity you want to look cute and flirty while doing it. The best flirty, yet casual option is a summer dress, which is what you should be wearing for this.
Pair the flirty dress with a pair of sneakers or espadrilles for a functional yet stylish look that will fit any occasion. If it's a little chilly outside, swap the dress for a maxi skirt to keep the flowy, flirty material and add a light jacket.
The Movie Date
Movie dates are hard, and not something I suggest for a first or second date. However, if you know the person well and want to enjoy a movie theatre experience together, then this is a nice date. this is one of the more comfortable date outfit ideas, so go all out on what makes you feel relaxed.
But you do still want to look cute and like you tried a little bit for the date. The best way to do this is by wearing knitted wide-leg pants or flared pants with a chic oversized sweater, t-shirt or knit. The knitted pants are actually very on-trend and with a tank top, you can even wear them it for lunch before or a drink after. Finish it off with some comfy yet stylish sneakers and a tote bag (to bring in your own snacks) and voila!
