Question: What should I wear for a date in the park?
Answer: First off, you have picked a wonderful date location! Parks are a beautiful setting and I’m sure you and your date will have a great time.
As for what you should wear, remember that this is a date, so you want to look nice. However, the outdoor setting gives you leeway to look a little more casual than you would, say, going to a nice restaurant. An easy, breezy sundress would be perfect for wandering the park. These are great pieces because they flatter literally every body type and never fails to look effortless. Also, they come in a variety of styles, colors, and patterns, so no matter your personality, you will be able find one that speaks to you.
For footwear, a date in the park is not the time to break out those new heels. The last thing you want to do is cut your date short because you have blisters! You want to be comfortable without comprising your style. Stay away from flip-flops, as they would err on the side of too casual. Try instead a pair of trusted sandals that you know you can walk in for long periods of time. If you’re in a sporty mood, you can even get away with an adorable pair of VANS of Keds!
In terms of accessories, stay true to you. Whatever you find yourself gravitating to at that moment, put it on. Jewelry is an excellent way to infuse your personality into your look. If you have a penchant for mixing metals, do it. Love to layer necklaces? Go for it!
Lastly, although your outfit is important, remember that your date is there to see you, not what you’re wearing. So strive to look nice and feel confident, but after that, let it go and have fun!
