Dinner & Movie

As date night ideas go, dinner and a movie might be great if you’ve been together for a while, but neither idea makes for a good first date. Movies don’t let you talk – a first date is meant as a time to get to know one another, and dinners can really be a drag especially if you find out right away that it’s not meant to be. They aren’t great as first date ideas but it’s hard to beat that line up for an established couple’s date night. Generally, a dinner date is a more formal affair and calls for, at the very least, a button-down shirt and dark wash jeans, all the way up to a sport coat and dress pants. Have some fun with your style on one of these dates! These are some of our recommended dress shoe styles.


One of the stronger first date ideas, getting coffee allows you to relax and get to know one another. A coffee date means daytime and casual, but don’t go overboard on the casual. It’s always important to look like you put some thought and effort into your attire. It shows respect for yourself and for your date. You’ll never go wrong with a collared shirt, fitted jeans and sweater. Check out our top casual shoe styles for a coffee date.


The lunch date works for both a first date idea and a daytime version of the couple’s date night idea. Find a place that is trendy but not so popular you can’t get a table or too loud to hear each other talk. And by all means, avoid fast food chains and the $9 all-you-can-eat buffet. The question remains: What to wear for a first date lunch? Keep it simple with a pair of jeans with an untucked dark wash chambray shirt, add in a boot or oxford, and you have a great look to accompany your burger and fries. Versatile enough for a suit or jeans, dressed up or down, these shoes are perfect for a lunch date.


Great for a first date or date night alike. If it is a weekday evening your attire will likely be dictated by what you wore to work. If so, push the boundaries a little and add a little interest like some fun socks or shirt. If you do have time to make it home to change or it is a weekend evening, then you can get as creative or as simple as you want. It is evening so no matter what you wear keep it to a darker color palette. These styles offer a blend of classic and contemporary.

Sporting/Music Event

Sporting events and concerts can be an excellent first date or date night idea. Both call for casual attire. It’s a good time to break out your favorite team t-shirt or sweatshirt with a pair of jeans. Make yourself comfortable but keep your style sophisticated. We recommend a casual-cool style for your next sporting event or concert date.
