A bowling date with a special someone should be a memorable experience free of wardrobe worries and malfunctions. Opt for easy separates and casual one-pieces for a cute and comfortable outfit that will still look good with anything but cute bowling shoes. This way, you can worry less about your wardrobe and focus on getting your bowl on.
Flirty and Fun
A romper is a fun combination of a dress and shorts without the worry of potentially flashing your date when you bowl. Opt for fabrics like jersey or silk, which are comfortable and date-night appropriate. A solid-colored romper in basic black is classic, while cobalt blue adds color. Look for interesting details like a ruffled or beaded neckline and highlight your waist with a thin leather belt. Accessorize with a bold cuff and sequined flats for a flirty look that can take you from the bowling lanes to a late-night dinner.
A pair of black or dark wash skinny jeans with minimal distressing is a versatile option that can easily be dressed up for a bowling date. Pair skinny jeans with easy layers like a basic V-neck T-shirt and a leather jacket. Black or brown leather motorcycle options with minimal hardware add edge, while colored leather is unexpected and injects personality into the look. Wrap a thin scarf loosely around your neck and accessorize with an oversize watch. Balance the edginess of the look with laid-back loafers embellished with small studs or rhinestones.
Leggings are a basic foundation that can be paired with easy separates for a cute bowling date outfit. Black leggings are the most flattering so experiment with bright colors and prints on top to dress up the leisurely vibe. A fun tribal print or a flirty floral print on a loose tunic creates visual interest and balances the slim fit of your leggings. For definition, wrap a thin belt around your waist and layer a boyfriend cardigan over your tunic. Accessorize with a chunky necklace or oversize stud earrings. Visually elongate legs with black riding boots.
A dress can work for a bowling date, but stick with a hem that is not too short and layer with tights for coverage. Leave the little black dress at home and keep it casual with a sweater dress or shirt dress. A solid-hued sweater dress adds texture for a subtle and stylish ensemble when worn with neutral tights in black or gray. A shirt dress is another option that complements tights for a casual and comfortable date look. For those who prefer a statement-making look, opt for separates in similar shades, such as sheer gray tights with a charcoal sweater dress or shirt dress. Add chandelier earrings and ground the look with heeled ankle booties.
