4 Summer Date Outfits

by - May 23, 2019

Dating during the summer months, especially in the South, can be a sticky situation, literally. Regardless of what you'll be doing, you want to dress cute and stay cool at the same time, and I don't know about you, but shorts don't exactly scream romantic. So I put together four simple outfits that I would wear on a date - two dressier outfits and two more casual ones. I hope they inspire you this summer!

Dress: Amazon / Shoes: Target
Romantic Dress

First, let me tell you how much I love this dress. It fits perfectly, is thin but not see through, and just floats around your legs. It buttons up the front with little elastic loops. The waist is stretchy and has two hidden buttons to keep a liner in place so there's no chance of skin showing between the buttons. It comes in a ton of patterns and colors, and none are more than $35. I'm wearing a medium and it's not tight at all.

I, personally, would wear this dress for any occasion because it makes me feel so good about myself, but it's perfect for a romantic dinner or picnic, outdoor concert, or visit to a local museum.

Casual Dress

This maxi dress and denim vest combo is perfect for a date that involves some kind of activity. I would wear this to a ballgame, arcade, or movie. The stripes on this one makes it feel a little more casual than other maxis I own. You can't see them because of the vest, but it's got double straps. It's not lined but the material is thick enough it's not a problem. The waist is stretchy, which allowed me to shorten the skirt and create a blouse effect. If you live somewhere that doesn't get into the triple digits, you could swap the vest for a denim jacket and roll up the sleeves. I'm wearing low-heeled sandals here but could easily swap them for flat sandals or slides. I'm wearing the dress in a small.

Jumpsuit (old) - similar, similar, similar

A jumpsuit is a fun alternative to a dress and feels much more grown-up than a romper to me. Cotton or polyester will make it feel casual while materials like silk or crepe will make them feel more dressy. I would wear this one to a nice restaurant or concert. I've had this one in my closet for awhile looking for the right pair of shoes to go with it, so unfortunately it's no longer available, but I'll link to some similar ones.

White Jeans

White jeans are a great alternative to blue jeans in the summer, especially for a date. Pair them with your favorite dressy-casual button-up and bright shoes and you're done. This outfit is perfect for dates that involve a lot of movement like bowling or putt-putt. You don't have to worry about accidentally exposing yourself in a dress or skirt but still look put together and cute.
