What to Wear on a Day Date: Here Are 10 Ideas

Summer fashion

In terms of what to wear on a first date (or subsequent dates), there are a lot of rules floating around. I personally find daytime outfits harder to pull together than evening looks. One tiny faux pas and you’ll be considered “trying too hard” and overdressed!

I’m not suggesting forgoing statement pieces altogether, but when in doubt, less is more. It’s all about finding something that fits well, combines cute and casual, and maybe some sexy too. In search of that happy medium, this list comprises 10 go-to looks for daytime dates.

1. Rib-Knit Bodycon Dress from chuu

It is important to show just one body part to avoid looking too sexy. Case in point is the cold shoulder design of this breezy bodycon dress. The sports-luxe number looks sexy but casual, evoking just the right amount of seduction.

2. Wrap-Front Maxi Dress from DABAGIRL

This maxi dress is another perfect example of comfy chic and shows just a hint of skin with its sultry split at the full skirt. Wear with neutral strappy heels to further elongate your pins.

3. Wrap Style Jumpsuit from INSTYLEFIT

To go from work to a date, turn to the failsafe wrap style that’s elegant and approachable at the same time. This crisp, all-white jumpsuit is conservative enough for work but sexy enough for a long lunch with your date.

4. Tapered Jeans with Distressed Details from ZIZIBEZIRONG

For a quick coffee date, I’d reach for my favorite ripped jeans and pair them with a fuss-free, maybe slightly embellished button-down. The trusty combo makes me feel so grown up, and can no doubt be put together in a flash.

5. Lace Dress with Sheer Yoke from Ozipan

Laced casualwear is also highly recommended. Start out with this monochrome tunic dress that combines sheer and perforated textures. This sexy-yet-modest look shall set the heart racing.

6. Open-front Cropped Blazer from Seoul Fashion

Statement pieces may make you look too high-maintenance and unapproachable. Consider layering up with a slightly rugged jacket like this loose-fit blazer, which keeps you looking polished during brunch, and carries a zing factor underneath that fares well into the evening.

7. Floral Mini Skirt Set from DABAGIRL

For a fancy day date in a swanky restaurant, you can never go wrong with a ladylike mini dress with pretty details, like this blooming floral dress with subtle ruffles. Bonus points for the mid-riff baring design!

8. Tunic Dress with Cutout Ruffled Sleeves from JVLLY

Not sure where the day will take you? This simplistic, flowing dress is my all-purpose attire. Top off with sassy nails and smart sunnies.

9. Patterned A-line Skirt from UPTOWNHOLIC

Combining a basic tee with a flirty statement skirt is one easy way to create an unexpected look. I’d go for this sleekly tailored and brightly colored skirt.

10. Nude Dress with Self-Tie Waist from DABAGIRL

Benefit from the leg-lengthening trick (and nonchalant cool) of wearing tan heels with a nude dress. Top it off with black pieces (earrings, necklaces, sunnies or handbag) if you are worried about looking naked.
