Having an outfit ready for a summer date is great. The most popular date spots are found below, with outfit suggestions for each. Don’t forget, a date can be with anyone you care about! Now onto the important stuff: what to wear. Once you figure out where you’re going, these outfit suggestions will make it easy. Take the guesswork out of what to wear on a summer date so you can focus on the actual date and the memories you make.
Sitting on a blanket and spending quality time with someone while you enjoy a snack or meal is a perfect summer date idea. A simple summer tank and shorts are both casual and trendy. Kick it up a notch with a cute shirt dress for a slightly more aesthetic picnic vibe. This is one I imagine including charcuterie and fresh flowers complete with something bubbly.
Strolling from one outside market booth to another while finding fresh produce and the best-baked goods sounds like a primo summer Saturday morning. The only thing better than that is wearing an outfit to suit the occasion, like a utility suit with a DIY tote bag for your garden goodies and some comfy shoes.
This is an opportunity to wear that wrap dress you just made. This is the moment to get dressed up for sitting down. Practicality doesn’t have to be high, just remember that you’ll want a little breathing room after the meal wraps up.
Keep the move-ability high and the style even higher with an exercise dress and accessories that keep your hands free like a fanny pack. Bike shorts and a tee are other possibilities. For any date where you’ll be active (ie. hike, sports, etc.), think about cute comfort that still fulfills the activity like a tennis skort or flowy athletic shorts.
Okay, so I know that every part of a weekend getaway isn’t fancy, but I’m sure there will be one fancy occasion. Save the Poppy dress two-piece hack for this moment or a cutout dress, if you prefer. It will work for an upscale dinner, a walk by the ocean at sunset or a visit to a cute town with historic sites to take in.
Summer days are longer, but they tend to go by fast, so soak it up. It’s much easier to enjoy the moments when you know what to wear. Remember, summer outfits are meant to be easy to wear and cute enough to keep reaching for. Which summer date outfit was your favorite? Leave a comment below!
