When it comes to movie date outfits, it’s a good idea to keep it casual & cool. Brave those chilly movie theater temps with a breezy blouse and your favorite skinny jeans. And when they pull out the old “yawn” move, just let it slide.

Ain’t no mountain high enough! For a hiking date outfit, layer up in lightweight outerwear. Opt for breathable knits and layer on a too-cool jacket, like a bomber. Then, keep your hands free with a utility-inspired backpack—it’s the perfect carryall for snacks, water bottles or whatever the great outdoors throws at you.

The go-to get-to-know-you date! It could be a super swanky new bar that just opened, or maybe it’s a fun and kitschy local dive.

If you and your date are well-versed in what a strike or a triple-double is, take your date to the next inning by heading to a game! First of all, bring out your team’s colors whether it’s a striped shirt in their hues or a cool pop of color on your jacket. Reach for your comfiest jeans so you can be ready to cheer on your team all the way into OT.
