6 Easy First-Date Outfits for Summer

Now that the frost has thawed, the sun is emerging from the clouds, and we’re looking for excuses to spend pretty much all of our time outside, dating season has officially begun. We’ve loved cozying up indoors by the fire during the long and cold winter, but we’re all ready to start going out with that very special someone (or a few someones) now that the weather is practically calling our name outdoors. What’s more is that while we love a classic date night at our local bar, ’tis the season for some more adventurous and exciting date-friendly activities.

The only problem is what to wear—especially for a first date. You want to look pulled together but not over-the-top. The balance is hard enough to strike when all you’re intending is to sit down at a restaurant, but once you factor in a walk around the city, a casual baseball game, or a picnic in the park, the wardrobe choices get a little more complicated. For all those fun dates and more, these are the first-date outfit ideas for summer that we all have on the ready should the invitation ever be offered.

With outfit ideas like those, you’ll never be left standing in front of your closet feeling like you have nothing to wear for date night.
