Summer hanging out outfits 2023 here! Oh yes, here are some really cute outfits to hang out with friends in summer and the best summer outfits to wear when hanging out with a guy or husband. Because, let’s face it, you stopped going out on dates after you started dating and became official, furthermore exclusive. You only go out on a date four times a year now. Ten times, if you are a very romantic couple. The rest of the time, you just hang out. And if your style is feminine chic and you ran out of summer hanging out outfits – better scroll down.

But first, let us explain what casually hanging out in summer means. Clearly, hanging out in summer doesn’t mean going out on a date. You are more or less over dating, and you already know if you want to be in a relationship with that person or if you just want to stay friends.
Hence, there are two groups of people who hang out in summer.
First, family and friends (including friends with benefits) who like to spend their time together and enjoy their time together.
Second, sweethearts – people who are already in a relationship, who have a strong affinity with each other and don’t need to go out on a date to figure out if they want to date. Remember going out on dates is not the same thing as dating. You can go out on dates with different people at the same time as you look at your options – looking for that one person. But you date one person at a time. Preferably.
Dating, in general, means being official and exclusive to one person. Being in a relationship. And once you are official, you don’t go out on dates as much. You don’t get dressed up to go out for drinks and romantic dinners every weekend. Unless you are celebrating something or want to be cheesy, of course. The time you spend together with your partner, just hang out.
So how to dress if you plan to just hang out this summer? How to dress for a summer hangout? My advice; dress for yourself. You don’t need to dress sexy if sluty is not your style. Sure, you still want to impress people you tend to hang out with, but dress for yourself first.
Here is how to dress for a summer hangout if you define your personal style as feminine chic.
