Have you ever been trying to get ready for a date and you just can’t seem to get the outfit right? It’s probably fair to say that we’ve all been there. It usually results in going back and forth from your closet to your Pinterest boards to no avail. Then you end up wearing something you feel less than confident in, which is the worst feeling. Especially when you’re going on a date! The key to avoiding this oh-so-common stressful occurrence is to plan in advance. Have a few looks on standby that would be the perfect date outfits for a few different scenarios (movies, dinner, a sports game, and so on). We’ve rounded up some fashion inspo to refer back to for your next date night and have even included some shopping links for extra outfit planning ease.
Here’s some outfit inspo perfect for your next date night!
For a movie date
When dressing for a movie date, the most important factor is comfort. You want to be cozy and warm (we all know how cold theatres can get), yet still look put together and not sloppy. Put on a pair of loose-fitting jeans, a cashmere sweater, a chic large bag, and your favourite sneakers and you have the perfect leisurely chic outfit for a movie date.
For a casual dinner
A casual dinner date allows for a lot of freedom with your outfit, but you can simply never go wrong with a pair of perfect-fitting jeans and a flattering top. To dress up the look a bit, add a pair of low-height heels and a purse to match!
For a fancy dinner
For a fancy dinner date, the dress code is slightly more strict. To play it safe, we would go with a sultry mini-dress (but not too sultry), in any colour (black is always safe), paired with a pair of knee-high boots to add an extra element of style. Investing in a go-to mini dress is never a bad idea, as you can swap out how you style it to create multiple date night looks.
For a sports game
Whether it be a Blue Jays, Maple Leafs, or any other sports game for that matter, you can have a little fun getting dressed for a date to a game (just don’t be caught wearing the opposing team’s merch). We love the idea of pairing a sporty top or sweater with a skirt to dress it up and add some contrast. Pull the look together with a pair of fun socks and your staple jewellery.
For a cozy night in
Some of the best dates are the ones spent getting cozy on the couch with dinner and a movie right in the comfort of your own home. To make the night feel more special than just any other night in, wear a cute 2–piece outfit, as opposed to your regular sweats. Finish off the look with a sleek bun and clean makeup and you’re set.
For during the daytime
Although we labelled this piece to be catered to date nights, we simply can’t leave out outfit inspo for a daytime date! Day dates are so underrated after all! For a date during the day, you can really let your personal style shine through. And verging on the casual side is probably best. We took notes from Sofia Richie and would opt to base an outfit around either a blazer or jacket.
