So you landed a date with the cutie you’ve been eyeing for weeks, and there’s only one thing left to do: find the perfect outfit. Like many collegiettes, you may have a hate-hate relationship with, well, any pants besides leggings. Have no fear—we’ve come up with five perfect ways to wear leggings on a date. Read on for a cute and comfy outfit.
1. Dinner & Movie
Pairing leggings with a tunic is a great way to make them a little more formal. Add a cross-body purse and your favorite pair of booties for a bohemian look! This outfit is perfect for the classic dinner and movie date.
If you’re looking for something a bit edgier, a leather jacket can do the trick. A red purse makes this look stand out even more! This outfit is perfect for a shopping date—you’ll look super stylish while staying super comfortable.
3. Dressy dinner
Ripped leggings give this outfit some spice. Pair them with a light wash jean jacket and some killer heels, and your date won’t be able to stop staring! This outfit is perfect for a fancier dinner, when things may be getting more serious.
4. Meeting the parents
Leather leggings make this outfit a bit dressier. With sky-high booties and a cross-body bag, you’ll look totally put-together! Your SO’s parents are going to love you.
The zippers and leather panels on these leggings make them perfect for that concert you’ve been waiting for. A red top and sparkly booties perfect the look!
6. Picnic in the park
This casual outfit is perfect for a more laidback date. The patterned leggings spice it up while the white shirt and Converse tone it down!
7. Lunch date
For a more laidback look, pair colored leggings (like these wine-colored ones) with an oversized sweater and tall boots. So easy, so trendy! This look is casual enough for a lunch date, but still super cute!
8. Coffee date
This sleek outfit is perfect for a date at your local coffee shop. The white leggings and wedges make this look perfect for warmer weather. Ice cream, anyone?
9. Flea market
We love these military leggings! With a cute crop top and sandals, you’ll be sure to come across some awesome finds. If you want to make it dressier, add a necklace, too!
Whoever told you not to wear leggings on a date clearly didn’t know what they were talking about. With one of these fashionable outfits, you’ll definitely score a second date. Have fun, collegiettes!
