Summers are just around the corner and everybody is getting ready to hit their favorite hot seasonal spot. That’s right — going to the beach is exactly what we are talking about!
It’s time to have lots of trips and parties at the beach so planning ahead for these occasions is always going to keep you at the top of your summer game. Alongside the usual parties and family bonding, most couples end up going to the beach — and that’s when they have a ‘beach date’ planned out.
Beaches are commonly considered a great dating spot because of the romantic vibes they give. The scenic beauty of the sun in the horizon, the ocean waves gently brushing across your feet, the wind blowing your hair and all the other things make these dates so much more romantic.
The one that can either savor or kill these beach dates, even the ones held at night, are the clothes you choose to wear on this occasion.
“What to Wear” The Trauma Begins…
Considering the nightly beach dates, you can’t count on your sleek dresses or your favorite pair of stilettos to help you look your finest. You might end up walking on the sand or getting wet from the water so your usual date outfits wouldn’t work the best under these conditions.
That is why it is essential that you come up with ideas for your date outfits that can make you feel comfortable while walking on the beach or simply having a dinner date near the ocean.
This doesn’t mean you go for your date night dressed in a pair of shorts and a tee. While sipping your margarita or simply sitting beside a campfire, snuggled together, you must be dressed to impress your beau.
Before you start panicking and create multiple scenarios in your head of how horrible your date night might end, calm yourself — we have got you covered.
Outfits for Your Date Night at Beach
In order to give you the best experience for your date night at the beach, we have gathered some fun outfit ideas for you to try on in order to look stunning and comfortable for this romantic night.
The Bright and Casual Getup
Sometimes your beach date can involve walking around the sand for a while before having dinner or going up to the bar. In those circumstances, you need to pick out something that is perfect to wear throughout this time.
Opt for some casual dresses in bright colors so that they illuminate your figure. You can add a denim jacket on top — on a breezy night — with some equally bright sandals that blend well with the color of your dress and make it easier for you to walk on sandy surfaces.
The Swimsuit Cover up
You never know you might end up having a dip in the sea or just have a normal dinner in a café near the shore. In either case, it’s best to be prepared for whatever situation may come.
Wear a one piece swimsuit with a skirt on top. Denim skirts look amazing but any other skirt would look perfect too. This way you can look super cute and at the same time, you can either be ready for a swim or have a date night getup with just an addition of a skirt.
Trouser for Decadence
Another ideal getup for the beach date would be wearing high-waist linen trousers, preferably of radiant colors, paired with a printed bikini top. You can use a makeshift scarf to work as your bikini top as well.
This will allow you to show more of your upper body and at the same time it can define the tall length of your legs. You can even add some bold accessories to your outfit by wearing a necklace and some gold colored earrings to bring more finesse to the getup.
Shorts for the Summer
The most common bottom wear in the summer is none other than shorts — add that to your getup and you’ll end up looking a bit sportier. You can’t go wrong with shorts in the summers.
You can wear a loose top or a spaghetti strap shirt with either denim or chino shorts for your bottom half. You can even wear a swimsuit underneath just in case you feel like swimming mid way on your date. Also, wear some bracelets to add a bit more style and color to the look.
Those Cute Dresses
You obviously want to impress and be flirty with your lover on your romantic date — and one of the ways to do that is to wear something that will ooze out your sex appeal.
For your night date, put on a cute off-the-shoulder dress with some fancy sandals, a hat and a bucket bag to finish off this cute yet highly attractive look. This dress is ideal in accentuating the beauty of your shoulders, collar bone the length of your legs.
Go with Mixed Combinations
You might think that wearing mismatched beach clothes might seem like you forgot to pick the right outfit for this date night. Sometimes, playing mix and match with a bunch of clothing pieces can actually create a look that would be unique and perfect for your ideal getup for the date.
You can wear a crochet style or frilly style top with a wrap bikini for your bottom half. These are different from what you would normally wear but this unique look can be cute and surprisingly stunning and comfy — especially on a date night.
Wrap It in a Robe
One of the best getups where you want to show off your outfit or bikini, but still require a cover up if needed, would be to add a robe or a flowing beach cover up in colorful patterns or floral embroidery.
Wear your choice of plain or printed swimsuit. You can even wear a bikini top with trousers and then put on a cover or robe to nail off a chic look for your date.
The Classic Dress
You don’t always need to wear radiant clothes to stand out at night for your date.
Tone down on the color and go for a light pastel colored V-neck dress. It could have long sleeves or ruffled sleeves, as per the trends — they would look perfect either way. Get matching colored flats or strapped sandals to finalize the simple yet elegant look.
The Chic Outfit
For another one of your night date that starts with a walk on the beach and then leads to a restaurant near the ocean, get your hands on something comfortable yet eye catching at the same time.
One of the styles we can recommend is: wear a neutral colored stripped dress, add a brighter colored scarf around the neck, a denim jacket and some equally bright colored pumps to amplify the stylish chic look.
Keeping it Simple
When your night date involves walking around the beach, hands clasped into each other, consider wearing simple clothes for this occasion.
Get yourself a sleeveless blouse with chino shorts and a dark colored knitted kimono or cardigan over the blouse. Pick your choice of colored flip flops — it will make it easier to walk whilst you display your cute and comfy outfit for the long walks on the beach at night.
