What to Wear on a Lunch Date, Explained
So you planned a lunch date, now what to wear? While it might not require the polished ensemble that drinks in the evening may require, you still want to dress to impress. Whether you’re meeting your significant other for a leisurely bite during your lunch break or have a brunch planned for the weekend, you want to wear an outfit that’ll not only show off your signature style (effortlessly, of course) but will also be suitable for the rest of your day.
With the casual nature of this type of date, why not have a few charming date-appropriate looks up your sleeve? To get you started on some easy looks for any type of date, we’ve put together an arsenal of outfits that embody the casual-cool look you’re going for. These outfits will take you from a morning filled with errands straight to the table with your beau.
An embroidered skirt with a button-down and a trench coat is a perfect ensemble that will take you from the office to a midday date.
Need something effortless? You can't go wrong distressed jeans paired with a plain white tee. If it's on the colder side, throw on a longline coat for some extra polish.
Grab your date's attention with a pair of look-at-me trousers. If you're wearing statement pants, keep the rest simple by wearing monochrome layers.
Nothing says casual like denim. If you're wearing a chambray shirt, dress it up with a pair of leather leggings and a shearling jacket.
If you like printed pants but want to stay subtle, flared pinstripe pants will create a graphic look without going too bold. Plus, they'll make your legs look miles long. Top it off with a leather jacket.
A pair of denim trousers with a raw hem will give you instant cool-girl vibes. Dress the look up with a silk shirt to give it some extra sheen.
If you're running from errands to your date, a simple combination of a bright sweater and skinny jeans is perfect for a spring day.
With these outfits, there's no doubt that you'll be feeling confident and comfortable for your date.
