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 should, though). 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, you 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 or tacky 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.

CUTE SUMMER OUTFITS TO HANG OUT WITH FRIENDS
Summer is the perfect season to embrace light, breezy, and cute outfits that radiate a sense of freshness and beauty. Whether you’re heading to the beach, taking a leisurely stroll in the park, or simply meeting up with friends on the rooftop, looking cute and pretty is all about embracing the vibrant spirit of the season.
One of the key elements to achieving that cute and pretty summer look is choosing the right colors. Opt for pastel shades, floral prints, and light, airy fabrics that mirror the season’s cheerful spirit or open knit knits. Soft pinks, baby blues, mint greens, and sunny yellows are all excellent choices that complement the summer mood.
When it comes to makeup, a fresh and natural look is the way to go. Opt for lightweight, dewy foundations, a touch of bronzer for a sun-kissed glow, and a pop of color on your lips with a pretty pink or coral lip gloss. Minimal makeup not only feels comfortable in the heat but also accentuates your natural beauty, making you look effortlessly pretty.
Hairstyling plays a crucial role in your summer hangout fit. Loose beachy waves with a headband, or a messy bun are all chic options that keep your hair off your neck and add to your overall cute and carefree look.
To begin with, let me show you some of my favourite summer daytime hanging out outfits I wear when I hang out with my friends.
As you might guess, my friends always want to hang out with me at the shopping mall or a department store.
Admittedly, shopping malls are not my favourite place to hang out, but they are a good place to showcase my favourite summer dress.
Let me tell you about one outfit that I absolutely love for these casual shopping excursions – my mini halter neck dress paired with Saddler white sandal mules.
Wearing a tight mini halter neck dress for a shopping mall outing is a fantastic choice. As you can effortlessly slip it off and on when trying on new pieces in the fitting rooms. This practicality saves time and energy, making your shopping trip more efficient and enjoyable.
And what I love the most, its halter neck design, eliminates the need for any accessories. IMAO there is nothing worse than taking off the jewellery in the fitting room. Well, perhaps only the shoes. But I have a solution for that, too. Sandal mules! The mule style offers easy slip-on convenience, making it a breeze to take off in the fitting room.
Black and navy is the best summer palette for daytime hangouts with BMF. There is just something special about wearing dark colours in summer.
Discover a range of knitwear in black for the months ahead. Look for turtlenecks with short sleeves that will easily transition into your work wardrobe.
The Max Mara black turtleneck top with 3/4 sleeves is a versatile and timeless piece.

The 3/4 sleeves strike a balance between keeping you cool and protecting your arms from the sun.
