Whether your dream date is a taking a trip to the ocean, cooking a delicious tomato basil orzo meal for two, or going to see a movie in theaters (finally!), one thing's for sure: you're going to need something to wear. Sure, your closet is stocked, but if you're looking for a new accessory or are on a mission to update your look entirely, we've put together five cute outfits tailor-made for your next summer date.
An Afternoon in the Gardens
Your local botanical gardens is the perfect day date for easy conversation. Make a statement in a neutral maxi or blend right in with a flirty floral print. Pair with monochromatic sandals and minimal jewelry for an ultra-modern effect.
A Picnic in the Park
Balance cute and casual with this upscale skater-girl look. A bright statement top ties everything together, sneakers add a relaxed edge, and fun accessories, like colorful sunglasses, keep things flirty.
Denim Mini Skirt
An Art Walk
Go on an outdoor mural tour or indoor museum if you need the AC. Either way, summer and dresses go together like ice cream and chocolate syrup. Opt for a bright-colored dress or one in a statement pattern, and keep your accessories simple. Jewelry made of the same metal as your bag or shoes is the cherry on top.
A Sunset Stroll
We love an LBD as much as the next person, but we also know better than to underestimate the power of an all-white maxi on a summer night. Complete the look with wedges and dangly earrings, like ones that remind us of sea glass.
Gathered Maxi Dress
A Casual Dinner And/Or Movie
Put your best foot forward with bright summer sandals and a complimentary printed blouse. Get it, girl!
Cropped Skinny Jeans
Freedom Moses Slides
