What to Wear on a Summer Date: 5 Outfit Ideas for Girls and Guys

Whether you're meeting a first date from Hinge or planning a special anniversary activity for your S.O., we get it—you want to dress to impress. But with outdoor temps running high and outfit inspo running low, finding the perfect thing to wear can be tricky. That's where we come in, Jetsetters. Below, our style editors have crafted five unique, stylish summer date looks for girls and guys.

For a picnic in a park

Keep things fun and flirty for a date in the park with denim shorts, cute tops, and aviator sunnies. Don’t forget the picnic basket and blanket (and maybe a bottle of rosé)!

For drinks at a rooftop bar

Step up your style game for cocktails on a swanky rooftop in the city. Girls, go for a floral mini, strappy sandals, and pretty gold jewelry. Guys, dress up some trendy drawstring pants with a button-down and cool accessories.

For a day trip to the beach

Keep things playful for a day at the beach with colorful swimwear, laid-back cover-ups, and slip-on sandals. In your beach bag: a paddle-ball game, shades and hats, and an oversized towel roomy enough for two.

For an outdoor concert

We’re all about this tied wrap skirt for the ladies, dressed down with espadrille sandals and a flowy cami. Dudes, polish up ripped jeans with a printed shirt and monochrome sneakers.

For a bike ride

If you and your date are the athletic type? The bike shorts trend is perfect for women on a sporty date, while men will look cool in an oversized tee and a solid baseball cap.
