6 outfits for the perfect summer date

go bold or go home

Summertime date nights can be the most fun—and also the trickiest to dress for. When it's hot, we tend to be as close to naked as possible, but when you're meeting someone for the first or second time, you might not necessarily want to go that route (if you do, no judgement!).

So, we came up with six different ways to throw together an outfit that's cute, date-worthy, and weather-appropriate. Some takeaway tips: If you're going for a crop top, be sure to pair it with high-waisted shorts or pants, or if you're more of a dress girl, go for a fun print or a small cut out. And remember: Be yourself.
