What to Wear on a First Date in the Summer

Hot Summer Looks for First Dates That’ll Make a Splash

Summer, the season of love! The warm weather and endless activities are a perfect opportunity to get into the dating pool. These days, nailing down the first date is the easy part. The hardest part? Deciding what to wear on a first date in the summer!

For some, picking out what to wear on a first date may be second nature. However, what you wear on a first date actually matters a lot more than one might think. What you wear can be a strong indication of the kind of person you are, and what you wear should also reflect the kind of date you’re going on. You wouldn’t wear a ball gown to go bowling, would you?

The ultimate goal is to be comfortable. Wearing an outfit that is comfortable will keep you relaxed in a new situation and keep your confidence up!

If you’re concerned about what to wear on a first date in the summer, here are a few scenarios and outfit options:

Casual Coffee and Walk around the Lake

This is the perfect opportunity for cute and comfortable athleisure.

Ladies, grab your favorite pair of flattering yoga pants, a casual t-shirt and some walking shoes and enjoy the weather! Add a bracelet or your favorite pair of earrings to add a little sparkle.

Guys, a comfortable pair of running pants with a casual t-shirt, some walking shoes and a casual zip up in case it gets chilly is perfect!

Lunch Date

A date in the middle of the day is the perfect time for your favorite sundress, a cute pair of heels or flats, a pair of sunglasses, and a bold lip for some extra pop!

Men, a lighter pair of pants or shorts, a casual t-shirt, a light sport coat, and some boat shoes is just the right look.

Museum & Dinner

What could be more fun than a low key happy hour at a local museum followed by a nice meal?
