Straight men are not always experts at explaining to a woman how she should dress for an occasion. They don’t realize just how much information you need. If this will be a day into night thing, but it’s formal and outdoors, you need to know that so you can wear a fancy shawl to keep you warm but not take away from your look. A man would just tell you to, “Wear a jacket” not realizing you don’t just throw a leather jacket over an evening gown. Men don’t realize that we choose our shoes based on the ground we’ll be walking on. Literally: are we walking outside on the ground? We need to know because then we’re putting on wedges! But when a straight man is in charge of giving you the dress code, he probably won’t think of those things. He’ll just give you some vague directions that could mean anything at all. So here’s how to understand the dress code, based on your date’s explanation.

When he says, “Outdoorsy”

If you’re going to hike or do something active, he’ll tell you. So when he says outdoorsy, he means don’t wear something you don’t want to get ruined. You’ll likely be grilling, sitting on the ground, doing a mild hike to your destination and helping to set up a few things. So jeans, a t-shirt, a flannel and comfortable walking shoes are key. But you don’t need to put on your full hiking attire; you can still look cute.
