·2-min read

Casual first-date outfits can be hard to assemble, as they're so dependant on your chosen activity. If we're talking "casual" in the truest sense, it could be anything from a walk in the park to a drink at the pub, a mini-golf session or brunch. That, or unless you've been involved in the planning, you might not 100% know what's on the agenda.

But fret not, for we've rustled up a handful of incredibly stylish, casual first-date outfits that strike the perfect balance between effortless and cool so you can focus more on making a meaningful connection as opposed to spending the run-up worrying about what you're going to wear.

Chances are you'll even be able to pull them together from pieces already in your wardrobe. However, should you find yourself missing an essential item, we've also shopped out each look for you.
