The fast-food burger chain Five Guys has been around since the 1980s, making it relatively newer compared to a lot of other burger chains that started in the 1950s. Still, it grew quickly having over 1400 locations in the United States and over 1700 locations worldwide including Europe and Asia.
Being a more casual establishment, it is easy to assume any casual outfit can be worn to eat in at Five Guys. Casual can mean anything from jeans to sweats or pajamas. Casual also does not mean you should skip on looking clean and presentable.
Whether you are dining at Five Guys for a quick meal, a first date, or any other handful of reasons, consider a more stylish alternative that is still casual and easy to obtain. Any outing, including grabbing a burger is an opportunity to show your best self and your style.

Simple Jeans and a T-Shirt
For a casual place like Five Guys, a casual look like jeans and a T-shirt is an obvious choice that will help you blend in while still looking nice. Jeans and a T-shirt are also not a one-size-fits-all option. There are a variety of colors, styles, and combinations to choose to best show off your personality and style.
Wear Your Work Gear
If you are stopping in for a quick lunch, there is no issue with wearing your work gear, whether it is a pantsuit for an office job or a uniform for your trade. Just make sure it is clean and appropriate and make sure to grab a napkin so you don’t spill on it.
Cute Date Outfit
Five Guys is an accessible, public place for a date whether it is your first date or one of many. You can still get a little bit dressed up for your date if you like. For guys, consider a polo and khakis instead of shorts or jeans and a T-shirt.
For girls, consider a cute shirt dress or romper with a pair of flats and a few of your favorite accessories. You will look extra good for your date without looking out of place.
A romper is a versatile, easy outfit that can be worn for any season and any part of the day. It is a complete outfit on its own, or can easily be layered under a jacket, cardigan, or sweater. It is a great base layer to add a bag to, accessories, and jewelry depending on how much effort you want to put in.
You Can Still Wear Sweats
Being a casual place, you won’t look out of place if you walk in with a pair of sweats. However, make sure your sweats are stain-free, hole-free, and clean. Dressing casually does not mean being unkempt. Consider a matching sweat pair for a more put-together look with your favorite pair of sneakers.
A loose dress is a more casual, comfortable style of dress, perfect for a burger chain. It is a more feminine, chic option that is neither too formal nor too structured. It looks great under a jean jacket or cardigan and a simple pair of flats or sneakers.
Ripped Jeans and a Blouse
An easy way to dress up your ripped jeans is with a blouse. A blouse will help elevate your look and bring contrast to your grungier bottoms. It is a fashionable alternative to traditional jeans and a t-shirt that is still casual while also being stylish.
A versatile layer for men and women is a cardigan. It is a soft, cozy alternative to a sweater or jacket that adds length and texture to your look. Plus, it can be worn in a variety of ways, from buttoned up to tied at the front, to open and loose.
A blazer is generally considered a more formal, office-ready look. An overside blazer on the other hand easily fits into an office or a casual setting. The oversized nature creates a flowier silhouette that is not as structured and looks great with shorts, jeans, or dress pants.
A baseball cap is not just for guys or sports. It is a casual accessory that looks great on anyone and with most looks, from jeans to a dress to a romper. For a more cohesive look, match your cap to your shoe color.
A convenient way to store your belongings that works great for a lunch date is a chic clutch. Choose a neutral shade that will blend in with any outfit, or choose one with a lot of texture or bold colors to stand out.
A comfortable, loose option that sits in between athleisure wear and jeans is a pair of joggers. They are loose like sweats, but show off more of your shape. They also look amazing with a sharp pair of white sneakers.
A jean jacket is an effortless layer that compliments any look casually. A jean jacket looks great with jeans, leggings, or a dress. It is loose without being too baggy and provides shape without being too structured like a blazer or sports jacket.
Athleisure has become a popular choice to wear not just in the gym. There are a variety of cute styles and patterns that also help keep you cool and comfortable. If you do choose to wear athleisure for daywear, make sure that yours is not see-through or too revealing.
A good style rule is to wear modest bottoms if your top is more revealing or a more modest top if your bottoms are more revealing.
A mini skirt is a chic, sexy alternative to shorts that still creates shape and hugs your form beautifully. It looks great with a graphic t-shirt for a dressed-down look or paired with a crop top or blouse for a more dressed-up look that isn’t too formal for a fast food joint.
