Whether you're having brunch, visiting a museum, or maybe even just getting coffee, any date night is a memorable one when you're with the right person. Sure, sitting down at a classy restaurant can signal romance in the air, but believe us when we say that it's not about where you're at or what you're doing that makes the occasion special. 

Plus, it's a perfect opportunity to throw on a fresh and fun outfit that'll have you feeling great and your beau feeling lucky. It's preferably one that's not too stuffy, but still has enough flair to it. Need some suggestions? Scroll away for 10 easy-breezy outfits that are perfect for your next low-key date.

10 casual outfits to wear on a date:

1. Relaxed Blazer and Shorts Set + Tank Top

We all know a blazer can instantly spruce up any plain, casual ensemble. To keep things nice and easy, go for one with a loose fit and, if possible, one that already has a matching pair of shorts. All you need to do then is match tones with your inner top, and you're good to go.

2. Cropped Polo and Shorts Set + Tank Top + Sneakers + Crossbody Bag

If you don't feel like throwing on a blazer, a cropped polo and shorts would be a just as appealing. Keep everything else, like your inner top, bag, and shoes, in one hue so that your co-ords can really take center stage.

3. Linen Buttondown Shirt + Shorts + Sandals + Shoulder Bag

Similar to the last OOTD, this one is perfect for those who love taking in the evening breeze with a loose polo, but would prefer tucking theirs into a pair of bottoms. It creates an effortlessly chic silhouette, and is an easy way to rock a seamlessly monochromatic look.

Have a slinky black frock you just can't resist wearing? Go right on ahead and slip it on for your date night. To make things a bit more casual, layer over a loose buttondown, put on your favorite pair of kicks, and maybe even tie your hair back.

5. Corset Top + Relaxed Trousers + Sneakers + Handbag

There are hundreds of ways to style a corset top, and one of our favorite ones is to simply don it with a pair of casual trousers and sneakers. There's still some sophistication thanks to the Victorian-inspired piece, but it's dressed down just enough for city-strolling with your beau.

6. Denim Jacket + White Top + Black Trousers + Sneakers + Tote Bag

Go all out with the neutral MVPs in your wardrobe and you'll have a 'fit that's laidback but still stylish. You can never, ever go wrong with the denim + black + white combo! Opt for baggier fits for a comfy but uber chic silhouette.

7. Halter Top + Cropped Cardigan + Mini Skirt + Loafers + Handbag

Dainty ladies out there will love putting on this date-ready OOTD. Precariously buttoning up a fuzzy cardigan over a halter top and skirt takes the look from sultry-casual to preppy-chic in no time. Cap things off with a pair of go-to loafers, and you're set.
