There's something appealingly retro about a bowling date—plus, it's a great way to switch things up from dinner and drinks. Needless to say, you probably don't want to break out the minidress and skyscraper heels if you're planning to bowl, so as far as your date outfit is concerned, casual is the way to go.
Jeans are a foolproof choice, whether with a graphic tee or easy button-down. If you're strictly a dress person, though, no need to fret—just choose a playful printed style that's easy to move in, and pair it with your favorite sneakers. And here's one last pro tip: Bring some socks in your bag if you're not already wearing them—nobody wants to go barefoot in borrowed shoes.
