Spring has to be one of the best seasons to go on a date. I don’t know if it’s the extra sunshine or seeing everything in bloom, but it’s a special time of year to get out on the town!
Figuring out what to wear on a spring date can be challenging, thanks mostly to the weather, which can be all over the place. Not to mention, there’s usually more to do, from concerts to sporting events and al fresco dining, and each activity calls for a different look.
To help you feel your best, I compiled a list of the most popular dates and came up with eight spring date night outfits for eight occasions. I hope this post gives you outfit inspiration for your next date, and if nothing else, a few date ideas for springtime!
My Go-To Spring Date Night Outfit
My go to date night outfit usually involves a pair of jeans and a flirty top. In the spring, that looks like white or light wash denim, a floral print blouse, and heeled sandals as pictured above.
Unless it’s unseasonably warm, I like to bring a lightweight spring jacket. I layered the Cinq a Sept Khloe blazer, a new addition to my closet that I’ve been absolutely blown away by. I plan on writing a full review of the blazer soon, but I already anticipate it being one of my top 10 wardrobe purchases of 2022!
I’d wear this outfit to dinner or cocktails, but you could dress it down for a casual date by swapping in flat sandals and a denim jacket.

Spring Day Date Outfit Ideas
Walking or Picnic
For dates that involve a stroll (park, picnic, Farmer’s Market), try a tank, cropped jeans, and sandals. Show off your personality with accessories. I’d wear a sun hat for extra coverage and flare! Outfit details here.
Entertainment: Concert or Sporting Event
Ball games and outdoor concerts are common in spring and can be warm. I’d dress similar to the walking date but even more casual.
Cutoff shorts are perfect if it’s hot enough; if not go for distressed jeans and a tank. I like to wear my hair up to stay cool and usually choose a hands-free bag (crossbody or backpack) so I can grab a drink. Outfit details here.
Active: Biking, Mini Golf, Hiking
If you think you’ll sweat even just a little on an active date, a tennis dress/active dress with a ball cap and white sneakers is a great choice. You could also try an athletic mini skirt, skort, or shorts with a tank. If you’ll be in the shade or it’s too chilly for shorts, try a tank and leggings set. Outfit details here.
Food-Focused: Casual Coffee, Casual Lunch, Brunch
For casual food/drink outings, you can’t go wrong with a cute top and jeans. Shorts could work in this scenario too, depending on if you’ll be outside.
As far as tops go, a white blouse is a classic, feminine piece that looks good on everyone. If that’s too plain for you, try a floral or pastel blouse. Outfit details here.
Spring Date Night Outfit Ideas
For a drinks-only date, I tend to lean on the sexier side while keeping things classy. You can always go for a dress or a skirt that shows a little skin, but I feel my best in tops and bodysuits that have a pretty necklines, cutouts, or a low back.
I “ground” these types of tops with white, light, or mid-wash denim grounds so I don’t appear too dressy, then I layer a leather jacket for a little bit of edge. Finish the look with heels and a cute clutch! Outfit details here.
Casual Dinner Date
My spring dinner date outfits are similar to what I wear to bars but with a more coverage. Pair spring denim with a sleeveless floral blouse and bring along a blazer just in case it’s chilly.
I try to wear block heels as often as possible so that I’m comfortable if we go somewhere afterwards (drinks, ice cream, movies, etc.). Outfit details here.
Dressy Dinner Date
If you’re headed out on a special evening, it’s the perfect excuse to get all dressed up. Bring out that dinner dress—I love a long sleeve floral mini to keep me comfortable in A/C, but a midi or maxi with a jacket works beautifully as well! Outfit details here.
Outfit Details: Veronica Beard Ruffle Blouse, Cinq a Sept Blazer, Rachel Comey Jeans (old, similar here), Steve Madden Heels (old, similar here), J.Crew Bag
What’s your favorite type of spring date? What do you wear?
We like to do cocktails (springtime drink flavors are to die for!) and then go for dinner somewhere with outdoor seating. I’d love to hear what your spring date nights look like—both what you do and what you wear—in the comments! xo!
