Dates are fun, and while there are plenty of associated worries, your wardrobe shouldn’t be one of them. Lunch dates are typically casual, so going for a simple look is key -- even when you're rocking a dress. Be comfortable and wear clothes that make you feel confident -- take a pass on perilous pumps and heels that will have you hobbling after your date.
In warm weather, flirty frocks and breezy sundresses sizzle, so opt for skater, structured strapless or two-tiered dresses. Colorful or printed fabrics add personality, while soft pastels scream femininity -- dress according to your mood and personal style. In general, steer clear of black for a lunch date, as the LBD is best saved for an evening out. Rock a flowy midi skirt to make a simple statement or slip on a maxi style with a tank top for a summery look. When temps drop, easygoing layers keep outfits casual and cute -- think oversized cardigans, airy sweaters, cropped jackets or boyfriend blazers. Cue in color with eye-catching earrings, chains, bangles or bright belts. Finish your lunch look with ballet flats, T-strap sandals or wedges to keep on firm footing.
