You have a big bowling date and don’t know what to wear. There is no real dress code, of course, but here are some suggestions that may help your game.

Dress for comfort. Pick out a cute, yet comfortable pair of jeans, capris, or shorts (but not too short, as you’ll be bending over throughout the night).

Go to the top. Wear either a short-sleeved shirt or tank top. Bring a sweater or jacket depending on the weather, something you can take off once you’re inside. You’ll probably get hot during the game, and you don’t want to get stuck with a long-sleeved shirt.

Bring socks. You will be wearing bowling shoes that many other people have worn before you. You can never be too careful when it comes to potential foot fungus and germs. Make the socks interesting, something with patterns or stripes, especially if you’re wearing them with shorts.

Wear shoes that are easy to put on and take off. You won’t be wearing them while you’re bowling, but you don’t want to hold anyone up by taking a long time messing with them.


  • Don’t wear too many rings or bracelets. You don’t want your precious jewels to go down the alley!
