Spring Into Love With These 5 Cute Date Outfits

Now is the time to get your wardrobe right for falling in love. Spring means warmer weather, getting out of the house more often, and yes, swiping right. If you’re hoping to return to the dating scene this spring, make sure your wardrobe is stocked with the cutest outfits for any dating activity. Take a look at some perfect spring ensembles for a fair-weather courtship.

1. Dinner Date

You can’t go wrong with a pretty skirt if you’re looking for a quintessential dinner date outfit. Whether you prefer the breeziness of trendy floral skirts or the edginess of the archetypal denim skirt, you can’t go wrong. Not too dressy but showing that you put effort into your date night look, a skirt can easily be paired with a casual or dressy top and footwear. Any length from mini to maxi can be chic, and longer skirts are trending now.

If your dinner reservations require a little glam, you can pair your skirt with a button-down and wedges for a more refined look. If casual is more the vibe, your skirt can be paired with a fitted T-shirt and fresh tennis shoes. Either way, the versatility of a skirt is suitable for any dinner setting. Just add some accessories, and you’ll look and feel your best.

For cooler spring evenings, a sharp blazer or oversized denim jacket over your shoulders adds sophistication and style; it also adds a dynamic layer to any skirt and top combination, not to mention the comfort of protection against a cool spring breeze. So no matter the skirt you choose for your next dinner date, with the right top, shoes, and accessories, your outfit will be a hit!

2. Picnic or Park Date

Heading out for a picnic or park date doesn’t mean you need to resort to your gym clothes. Instead, choose something light, comfortable, and stylish. A loose maxi dress makes for a great look for any outdoor date. A maxi dress is comfortable enough for sitting on a picnic blanket without inadvertently exposing your rear end, and the loose fit beats the alternative: your jeans digging into your waistline.

Even though it’s a floor-length dress, a maxi’s breezy feel makes it casual enough for a day in the park. Depending on the weather, you might wear light tennis shoes or casual flip-flops with a maxi dress. Don’t forget to add a pair of cute boutique earrings, and voilà, your outfit is complete! Whether you’ll be nibbling sandwiches or picking at a charcuterie board, a maxi dress adds a little chic style to your look. And simply swapping your subtle work-appropriate posts for sassy hoop earrings can take your business attire to date night attire in a flash.

3. Happy Hour

What better way to end your workday than with a happy hour date? A casual way to unwind and a low-key way to get to know your new crush as they loosen up with a cocktail, happy hour is a great option for a midweek date.

But what to wear? If you’ll be heading to a happy hour straight from the office, carefully plan your work outfit so that it transitions well to the local pub. Dressing in layers that can be easily shed or packing a change of jewelry can help you achieve the perfect happy hour look. Consider wearing a sexy cami beneath a cardigan or blazer to elevate your look for a happy hour date.

Pack a change of shoes, too. Ditch your workplace wedges for party-worthy pumps, and you’ll be ready for your date before punching out from your 9 to 5.

4. Hitting the Dance Floor

If your date is planning a night out on the town that includes turning up at a nightclub, be sure to look stunning in the right outfit. Warm up your best moves and pair a sexy top with your favorite jeans and your best heels. You’ll be turning heads all night long, and your date will be proud to have you as their dance partner.

If the spring weather has you feeling more energized, your best mini-dress is just the ticket. From the classic little black dress to a flowy floral number, nothing looks cuter than a short dress bopping around the dance floor. Accessorize with sparkle, go full-glam on your makeup, and add a little height to your shoes. To top it off, add your cutest cross-body bag or colorful clutch along with your shiniest lip gloss.

5. Brunch Date

Mimosas, anyone? What better way to kick off Sunday Funday than brunching with your new suitor? But what to wear? Light colors, playful prints, and even your best boyfriend jeans are all great options for brunch. With a cute straw hat or an oversized pair of sunglasses, brunch with you will look just as appetizing as the eggs Benedict.

Anything goes with a brunch date. Dress it up or keep it casual — Bloody Marys have no dress code. So, whether you feel more like a comfy pair of tennis shoes or a fabulous pair of heels, whatever feels and looks good is suitable for a brunch date.

Ready for Romance!

No matter where your next hot date finds you, there’s an outfit for every occasion. From jaunty dresses to relaxed denim and shoe vibes to perfect jewelry pieces, putting together an outfit for a date can test your confidence. But stick to some of these tried-and-true styles, and you’ll have your beau scheduling your second date before the first one even ends.
