5 Stylish & Affordable Date Outfits

With its sky-high rents and countless must-try restaurants, calling S.F. home may seem tough to do on a tight budget. But it seems that Bay Area living might be even more expensive if you're currently unattached. According to a recent study from GOBankingRates, San Francisco is the priciest city for singles, with New York City a close second.

But let's be real. It's not just the overpriced cocktails and dinners that add up — dressing for a date can easily cost a pretty penny, too. Combine the cost of shoes, clothing, accessories, hair, and makeup, and you may very well spend hundreds of dollars before you know it. Which is why we’ve compiled five stylish and affordable looks — for everything from a live concert to a day in wine country — that won't break the bank. Now you just have to find yourself a date.
