Summer accessories can really make or break a first date outfit summer. It’s true! You might think that they don’t, but a thin, minimalist necklace or a specific hairdo are some of the cutest efforts you can make when you go out with a special someone for the first time.
By now, we all know I am a bit of a fashion addict – analyzing and breaking down cute summer date outfits as well as any kind of outfit, really, is my passion. I’ve decided to put together this easy guide for you to create the cutest fashion combinations. That way, when you’re waiting in line at the restaurant, you know that all eyes will be on you – and you only.
Summer date outfits are so fun to create. You can play on the light, you can play on textures, and in the end, you know that you will look banging hot. That’s pretty easy to put together a beautiful summer evening date outfit. All you need to do is follow those few tips.
From jewelry to shoes, from makeup to layers, I’ve broken it all down for you. All that’s left to do is the actual effort of combining some cute pieces together. You’ll look like the queen of the evening in no time!
If you want to create cute summer date outfits, you’ll need to splurge on some beautiful jewelry. There are many very affordable jewelry brands around today, from Spanish brands to German, English, and Korean jewelry styles. What you really need to do is thoroughly think about the best girls summer accessories.
Think of what you usually like to wear, and what you would be ready to try when you go out on a first date. You can go minimalist with some thin gold or silver chains. You can also choose to go big with trendy clay jewelry. What matters is you feel good in your outfit and your own skin – this shows during a first date!
I’ve found that cute summer date outfits are often elevated by some soft, really clean makeup. You don’t really need much – some shimmery eyeshadow, a bit of blush, and lipgloss are often enough for a first date outfit summer.
Going all out for a first date can be a bit frightening to the other person, and you will want to keep it natural so your features really show. You can still play on shadows to remodel your jawline and cheekbones a little bit, but do make it a point to have luminous, really bright makeup. It draws the light on your face and just makes the whole look appear glowy, youthful, and fresh.
Summer accessories are amazing for one thing – they can be as bright as you want them to be. No one will say a thing, and some bright-colored, statement pieces will really lift up the most neutral summer date outfits. If you’re a girl with a bright personality, then a neon pink or green ring, or some statement, colorful gemstone earrings can really do the trick.
Once again, the goal is to feel good in your own skin. Going on a first date is exciting and frightening enough without you wearing something that doesn’t really make you feel like a queen.
When you’re putting together cute summer date outfits, the textures of your clothes and jewelry are of the utmost importance. Since it’s summer, light, flowy textures can look really cute. A simple airy dress combined with cute girls summer accessories can play the part really well.
The color depends on your own preferences – you don’t have to stick with white or black just because it’s the first date. How about choosing some calming teal or a pale coral for a textured dress? Lace, crepe, silk – play on the textures and you’ll find that some really make you feel more beautiful and sexy than others.
Summer accessories are amazing in that they belong to the airy, temporary nature of summer. You can choose a light-colored ring, a bright-colored skirt with a silky top, and you know they will put you to your advantage. The vital part of a summer outfit is to play on the light.
You want to attract all the light on your outfit so all eyes are on you – especially those of your date. That’s why some shiny accessories are some of the best friends you could make for the evening. Get yourself a white gold ring, a light metallic eyeshadow palette, a transparent gloss – anything that will bring light to your face and body.
Some of the best girls summer accessories to choose from are the shoes. It’s often really tricky for me to find a good pair of shoes, because I’m addicted to amazing designs and cuts. The textures and colors that you can find on shoes really show whether the brand has a creative mindset or remains among the classic shoe brands.
A simple pair of shiny high heels or bright-colored flats can do the trick – avoid sneakers, and if you do choose sneakers, get a pair of Victoria, Vans, or Superga-style shoes. They go with everything, from pants to short skirts, and you’ll still look cute and feminine.
For a banging summer evening date outfit, you will really need to focus on the textures. As I mentioned above, the play-on light can really make or break cute summer date outfits. Just because you don’t want to splurge on some expensive designs doesn’t mean you can’t choose some nice materials.
Today, all kinds of brands, from sustainable and ethical fashion brands to high-end designer names offer cute cuts and nice materials. Be sure to choose something flattering for your body. It’s no science – take a look at what you have in your wardrobe, and select the best pieces. What flatters you the most? Then, if you want to purchase a whole new outfit for your first date, you will know roughly what to choose without having to give it too much thought.
Don’t put so much thought into the cutest summer date outfits and forget your hairstyle! Hair is one of the first elements that we see from a person, and even if we don’t want to judge a book by its cover, we do it unconsciously. For a first date outfit summer, I recommend wearing your hair down.
This will show the length and shine of your hair while making you look clean and feminine. If you’re more of a boss lady kind of girl, wearing your hair very high up with some statement earrings or a choker necklace can also look very nice.
Some of the cutest girls summer accessories you can use on a first date are long necklaces. Called “sautoirs” in French, they can delicately unveil your cleavage, making you look sexy yet sophisticated. When I try to put together cute summer date outfits, I always try to mix a nice flowy dress, and two or three layered long necklaces.
That creates a very stylish outfit in the end. Plus, it does look effortlessly chic even though all I’ve done is put on some mismatched necklaces. Don’t forget to wear your confidence when you put on your jewelry!
You don’t need to tell me twice to wear bright colors in my summer date outfits. I’m a very colorful personality to start with. To me, a first date outfit summer does not go without one or two bright pieces in my book. Whether you choose a bright-colored blazer (pictured above), a pair of shiny red shoes, or a simply bright raspberry lipstick, color denotes self-confidence.
It would really be a shame to downplay it on a first date! Be sure to wear bright colors that really match who you are. Remember, you want to look good – and feel good in your own skin as well.
