We don't know about you guys, but it seems like the older we get, the more we start to prefer slower-paced affairs than upbeat party crowds. Friday night-outs have started turning into afternoon coffee dates, and we're not complaining.
Aside from being an opportune time to leisurely catch up with friends, spending time at a cafe is also an excuse to dress up in something comfy but cute. While there isn't really a dress code for coffee dates, throwing on a 'fit that matches the ambiance of your chosen cafe can make for some great pics for the 'Gram. In case you need some ideas, we rounded up 10 of them below.
10 casual OOTDs to wear on a coffee date:
1. Oversized Sweater + Baggy Jeans + Fun Necklaces + Tote Bag
Your coziest sweater teamed with a delightfully baggy pair of jeans is an ensemble you can practically fall asleep in, so it's the perfect thing to have on when you're going to be sitting in an air-conditioned space for hours. Stack on a couple of interesting necklaces so you have some conversation starters on deck just in case.
2. Striped Pullover + Relaxed Blazer + Wide-Legged Trousers + Belt + Sneakers + Cap + Handbag
Relaxed suiting is more than welcome in cafes. Try to have all your pieces follow a singular color palette (earth tones, for example) to add a nice dimension to your laid-back 'fit.
3. Oversized Buttondown + Cut-Off Jeans + Dad Sneakers + Gold Jewelry
Loosely wear a crisp white buttondown with some raw-cut denims and you've got a look that can be only described as effortlessly chic. Add some height to it with a hefty pair of dad sneakers. Oh, and remember that a little bit of gold bling goes a long way.
4. Colorful Tank Top + Shorts + Boots + Shades
A tank and shorts can easily be transformed from an everyday pambahay look to a cafe-ready OOTD by wearing them with a chunky pair of boots and some sleek shades. It's easy to throw on, yet it still packs quite the punch.
5. Oversized Polo + Matching Shorts + Bandeau + Trucker Hat + Stacked Necklaces
This "just-rolled-out-of-bed" look is something you'll want to wear over and over again. Sticking to only one or two hues for your whole ensemble instantly makes it seem like you put 10 times more effort into it. You can't deny how stylish yet comfy this outfit is, and we bet it'd look just as great with any other color combo!
6. Cropped Cardigan + Tank Top + Floral Midi Skirt + Flats
A dainty and classic look like this was made to be worn for those breezy afternoons that have the smell of caffeine in the air. Don't let anyone tell you cardigans are out of style, when cropped, frilly variations like this not only look cozy, but are also cute must-haves for anyone's wardrobe.
7. Slip Dress + Sweatshirt + Sneakers + Cap + Tote Bag
Slip dresses are great for any last-minute trips to the cafe since all you need to do is, well, slip them on. Throw on your fail-safe pair of trainers, a cap in case you don't have time to fix your hair, and a sweatshirt around your neck, and you're good to go.
8. One Shoulder Top + Printed Pants + Chunky Slippers + Handbag
As long as you're careful about not spilling your cappuccino on them, your plain white top can totally be a go-to piece for your cafe dates. Amp it up with your funkiest pair of pants and some delighfully chunky slippers.
9. Jumpsuit + Sneakers + Handbag
If you really can't think of anything to wear for your coffee run, a jumpsuit can quickly come to your rescue. Hunt for one with a collar and some utilitarian details to make your 'fit look more casual.
10. Floral Wrap Dress + Flats + Rattan Handbag
No occasion is too laid-back for you to not put on that favorite floral dress of yours. A wrap-around one ensures maximum comfort while also maintaning the look of a nipped waist. All that's left to do is to throw on a neutral-colored pair of shoes and to clutch your chosen bag for the day.
